    Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin gold , Bitcoin Diamond , Bitcoin private i think and others 7+ im planinng to cash out too When The price will skyrock.

    To get The coins you have to export your private key and import it into New wallet For example Bitcoin Cash or gold wallet

    Be carefull too many fake wallets on internet

    1. Install Coinomi wallet on your phone
    2. Import your private key to BTC wallet by scanning QR code in Coinomi
    3. SEND BTC TO NEW PAPER OR HARDWARE WALLET!!!
    4. Import key again to BCH on Coinomi
    5. Send BCH to exchange
    Repeat 4 & 5 for other forks
    Do not miss step 3 as your key is now unsafe

    Yes. There's an option "sweep wallet" where you can either scan a QR or type the key in.

    Yh I actually went the blockchain.info route for getting my bitcoin and btc cash but I fucked up and lost all my bitcoin cash lol. As soon as I swept the wallet I sent all bitcoin to another wallet but for some reason it also sent all my bitcoin cash to the same wallet and since bitcoin wallets don't accept bitcoin cash its now dust
