Protect your wallet now with a strong password. To do this, select the “Encrypt wallet” option under the “Settings” menu item.
Then create a backup of your LitecoinCash Core Wallet. To do this, click on the menu item “File” and then on “Wallet backup copy…”. Save the file to a clean USB stick* or an external hard disk*.
Bitcoin Code ist a new wallet
If you owned Litecoin at the time of the spin-off, you automatically own ten times as much LCC. However, in order to receive and send your “Free LCC”, you must export the private key of your Litecoin Wallet (not LCC Wallet!).
But before you start in a hurry, you should read this section to the end. Dealing with private keys Bitcoin Code can be dangerous if you have no experience with them. You could suffer a total loss if you make mistakes. It also depends on the type of storage whether you receive your LCC or not.
You had your Litecoin at the time of the spin-off…
… on a stock exchange
They depend on the Exchange to distribute the LCC to users. At larger exchanges it is not very likely that you will get your Litecoin Cash at the beginning, usually it takes some time or you will never get your LCC.
… on a hardware wallet
Either wait here for the hardware wallet provider to publish an application for a Litecoin Cash Wallet or use your seed to redeem your LCC.
If you have multiple currencies on your hardware wallet, you should wait until the developers release an application. The effort and risk would be too great.
However, if you want to redeem your LCC with the seed, you must first send all currencies from the Hardware Wallet to a separate and secure Wallet. Then you must insert the seed into a compatible wallet (e.g. Electrum LTC) and then export the private keys to the addresses where you held Litecoin at the time of the Litecoin Cash spin-off.
If this seems too complicated for you, you should consider waiting for a release from the Hardware Wallet developers.
… on a desktop wallet (Litecoin Core, Electrum LTC) or an app
If you had your Litecoin on a desktop wallet or app, you should be able to “cash in” your Litecoin Cash. First send your Litecoins to a new and secure wallet.
Then you must export the private keys to the Litecoin addresses (not LCC!) on which you held Litecoin at the time of the spin-off. Exporting differs from wallet to wallet:
Litecoin Core (Under Help / Debug Window / Console):
dumpprivkey LITECOIN ADDRESS // or if password exists first: walletpassphrase PASSWORD
Electrum LTC: Wallet > Private Keys > Export
Insert private key into LCC Core Wallet
Once you have exported your private key, you can insert it into the Litecoin Cash Core Wallet. To do this, open the “Import private key…” option under the “File” menu item. Insert the private key to your Litecoin address there. Afterwards your LCC should be displayed and you can send them, for example to YoBit* and sell them there.
Litecoin Cash and Bitcoin Code Mining
LCC uses the SHA256 mining algorithm, which is also used for Bitcoin Code. This means that for LCC mining you need a SHA256 Miner, i.e. a Bitcoin Miner*.
Once you have a SHA256 Miner, you can dig LCC. For this you need a mining pool. The Suprnova Mining Pool is reliable and recommended. There you have to open a new account and then create a worker (MyAccount > MyWorkers).
Finally, you only have to enter the pool, the worker and the worker password in your LCC Miner, i.e. our example would then look like this:
Pool: stratum+tcp://lcc.suprnova.cc:6868 (see Suprnova)
Worker password: x
Then your miner should dig for the LCC digital currency and your suprnova dashboard should show your hash performance.
