When Bitcoin forks, it creates a new kind of digital asset. Including new assets in CoolWallet must be approached with caution. August 1, 2017, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) was successfully launched. BCH is a fork of Bitcoin (BTC), which means everyone who had BTC in their CoolWallet at the time of the fork now also owns the same amount of BCH.Not every asset is safe be added CoolWallet due to security reasons .
So we’re here to teach you how to access your BCH before CoolWallet officially supports it:
If you’re an Android user, simply download an app wallet that supports BCH,for example Coinomi or FreeWallet. Then recover your wallet on the app which will give you access to both your Bitcoin or Bitcoin Cash.
If you’re an iOS user, you can use desktop wallet such as Electron Cash to access your Bitcoin Cash, And here’s how you do it:
After clicking “Next” you will created an encrypted BCH compatible wallet. Sweep Private Key into Electron Wallet
And here are other wallets that support BCH:
Jaxx / Bitcoin Unlimited /Bitcoin Classic/BitcoinABC
But if your CoolWallet is created by number seeds it could not be used to recover on other wallets, which means you can’t access your Bitcoin Cash at this moment, but don’t worry, your Bitcoin Cash is safe with CoolWallet, and they shall be accessible once CoolWallet support it.
