Hi all,

As stated, I have some old Bitcoin lying around that I want to move. As it currently stands I have this Bitcoin stored in an old Electrum wallet that is roughly 2.5 years old. Before I go and cowboy my funds I thought I would ask for advice here first now that the fees are low enough to move them comfortably.

I am wanting to use the following set up:

  • A new post-Segwit wallet for my BTC

  • A new hardforked wallet for my BCH

  • The potential to reimport the old keys into any new forks of BTC (i.e Bitcoin Unlimited etc)

From there I will move my funds from the old address to the new address. After I have confirmed they have landed in the new address I will import the keys into a BCH wallet to keep them completely separated.

Regarding the steps for transferring the funds themselves, are there any important steps that I need to be aware of to avoid sending my coins into the ethos?

Thanks for your time.

*ninja edit: this is a throwaway account btw
