Step 5. Electron Cash wallet launches

Electron Cash wallet uses the BCC ticker symbol instead of BCH. BCC is Bitcoin Cash (BCH).

The Electron Cash wallet launches automatically once encrypted. You should see the same pre-fork number of Bitcoin Cash (BCH) coins in your Electron Cash wallet that you see in your Electrum (BTC) wallet.

Remember that Electron Cash is a Bitcoin Cash (BCH) wallet only. Do not send BTC to a BCH wallet, and do not send BCH to a BTC wallet. Although they share the same namesake and pre-fork history, the networks are separate.

Step 6. Post-Claim Tasks

A. Make sure your Electron Cash wallet works as you expect. Start by sending and receiving small trial BCH transactions. Wait for confirmations to accrue before proceeding with larger transaction amounts.

B. Use the Blockchair website to explore your transactions on the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) blockchain. Copy a public wallet address used to claim BCH, and paste it into the Blockchair search box. Or you may append a public wallet address to the following link: https://blockchair.com/bitcoin-cash/address/your-BCH-address-here

C. Import additional private keys if needed. Click Wallet > Private keys > Import. Paste each private key into the Enter private keys input field on a new line. Click Import to continue.
