    To Get Bitcoin Gold You Must Act Today

    1. NEW HARD FORK TIME ESTIMATE: 9:45pm, EST.



    2. The Futures markets are REAL. BTG currently pricing about $500.
    I've already sold more than I'm going to qualify for, so I hope the price goes down.

    Mkt 1: https://yobit.net/en/trade/BTG/BTC

    Mkt 2: https://bleutrade.com/exchange/BTG/BTC

    3. To get your BTG, get your BTC to Bitfinex or download and send it here, and FAST: https://electrum.org/#download


    4. The following exchanges have NOT guaranteed they'll deliver BTG to their clients, so they're not safe places to store your BTC today: Coinbase / GDAX, Gemini, Bitstamp, Kraken, Poloniex and Whaleclub.

    Coinbase / GDAX statement, not very reassuring: https://support.coinbase.com/custome...tcoin-gold-faq

    7am EST Update. Hard Fork estimated at 1am EST tonight.

    Bittrex just suspended BTC deposits so the easy route's closed.

    But don't worry, you're not screwed. There's still two options:

    1. You can sell you BTC for any other currency, move that currency to Bittrex, then sell it back for BTC there -- presto, you're in.

    Note: for the hard fork Bittrex has placed an air gap between its site and its BTC wallets, so your BTC won't appear in your wallet. It's still there, though, and you can "see it" if you go to the page to sell your BTC for USDT.

    OR, 2. Download and install the following wallet (it's pretty user friendly): https://electrum.org/#home . Then get a deposit address from your new wallet, withdraw your BTC from wherever it is and send it to Electrum and you're done.

    mean do you suggest moving alt coins into bitcoins even if for a moment (forc time) then perhaps redistribute them out?

    Bitcoin Gold was pre-mined (100,000) so there may be a dump when trading starts.

    As MPS posted, the fork will occur at block 491.407. You can check the blocks here https://blockchain.info/

    MPS, if you don't mind, a brief rundown on how this works. I already use Electrum, I have btc in a book now. If I withdraw to my wallet and hold for a day, I get BTG 1 for 1? Nothing else required on my part? Can I deposit back to book tomorrow? Reading some online but would appreciate some clarification. Thanks for all the info.

    TTT, my man, I hear ya. What I'm doing so far is using some fiat/tether to buy a bit, but not selling any of my real alts, but I have no idea if that's a wise move or completely idiotic.

    Here's the thing: on the one hand the bitcoin community LOATH BTG. They divide about 50/50 between people who think BTG's an outright scam and those who think it'll trade for basically zero.

    On the other hand, I've now found two (real or fake?) futures markets that seem to be pricing BTG at about $450, so I dk what to believe:

    1. https://yobit.net/en/trade/BTG/BTC

    2. https://bleutrade.com/exchange/BTG/BTC

    And a decent guesstimate is we mine a block about every 10 mins, so maybe 13ish hours from now?

    No prob, my friend. You've got it exactly right: as long as your BTC is in your Electrum wallet tonight, tomorrow you can send it wherever you want and you'll still qualify for the BTG whenever this joke of a development team finally gets it market ready, which they currently describe as, "sometime in November."

    One thing, though: don't wait too long to move your BTC because at some point this afternoon / tonight everywhere's going to shut down BTC transfers in both directions. Why? Well, as the Second Rule of Acquisition teaches us, "hard forks produce a vulnerability subject to replay hack attacks, so everybody stops transfers for a few hours on either side of them."

    Good plan, my friend, I'm with ya!

    BTG will probably turn out to be almost worthless, but who knows? Can you name a time or two when conventional wisdom about crypto has turned out to be not quite 100% correct?

    Hell, I can name 10 times I've been stone cold dead WRONG, just off the top of my head, so who knows if all these people really know anything to justify screaming "WORTHLESS!" or not.

    UPDATE: (Unconfirmed) There's a strong rumor that Bitfinex will issue BTG to its clients. Confirmation to follow.

    (Heh, presumably without a ratio for people like me to screw with)

    We're at 419,392, so 15 more blocks, estimate 10 mins a block -- that can be wildly off though -- so let's estimate about 9:45pm EST

    GL, my friend. If I'm honest, I'm impressed they're even still taking deposits. Half the bitcoin universe is probably trying to get in there right now.

    Compared to that, Bittrex is a total wuss joint who suspended deposits / wd's early this morning.

    That's it, the photo's taken. Congratulations to all BTC owners -- you're now also BTG owners!

    We're not supposed to receive our tokens or have any live markets for a few days, but who knows? Exchanges like surprises.

    Nitro send my payout with 4 blocks to go, whew! I did dumbly have some stuck on there on bets, but I originally thought the fork was going to be like 4 hours later, and really on the 25th not while some of it was already pending.
