How to access your BTH?
BTH is created by cross-forking bitcoin at block 478,558 (same as Bitcoin Cash). Any person holding bitcoin at the time of the fork will have access to an equal amount of BTH. This tutorial will guide you how to claim your BTH.
1. What you need to prepare
- A Bitcoin wallet: you must have Bitcoin in this wallet at block 478,558 to claim Bytether.
- An Ethereum wallet: BTH is ERC-20 token which is run and mined on Ethereum network. Any Ethereum wallet can be a valid BTH wallet. Therefore, you need to prepare an Ethereum wallet (e.g.: from MyEtherWallet) to keep your claimed BTH.
- A small amount of Ether: the cross-fork is done via Ethereum smart contracts to make sure all transactions are public and verifiable. Hence, you need a small amount of Ether, less than 0.005 ether, in the Ethereum wallet to interact with our contracts.
2. The instructions
Step 0: Go to https://www.bytether.com/register.html and key in your Bitcoin address. The website will check the amount of BTH you will receive and proceed you to step 1.
Sign the message “bytether.com” with your wallet. We have a few tutorials to help you with different type of bitcoin wallets. If your wallet is not listed here, please Google the way to sign a message, your wallet should offer this function if you are holding the private key.
