You can exchange your BCH for BTC and multiply your wealth by 1.075 (at the time of writing).

  • Send your BTC to a new key/wallet.
  • Download and boot Tails
  • mkdir -p /home/amnesia/.electrum/wallets
  • Download, unpack and run
    • 10b5e65608e452a174d28b5030796d6a712e8cb7 Electron-Cash-2.9.2.tar.gz

  • Restore your old wallet from key/seed (i.e., the wallet that has now zero BTC balance, as you have sent out the coins in the first step) to Electron.

  • Wait 2 blocks.
  • Click “Transfer Main → Trading”.

Exchanging BTG

  • This was not tested.
  • WS charges 10 % processing fees. Unless you are a Bitcoin millionaire, paying 10 % is probably worth the convenience.
  • WS claim they support multisig wallets too.
  • Send your BTC to a new key/wallet.
  • Paste your private key to (see, this is why it is very important to move your real Bitcoins to a different key beforehand)
  • Send your BTG to HitBTC and exchange them as described above.
