Please read this article for the fork dates and blocks. You are only able to claim forked coins with the instructions below if you had a BTC balance in Coinomi before the specified block height.
1 - Update the app
Please make sure that you have the most recent version of Coinomi. Support for newer forks comes with new app updates.
2 - Select the wallet
Open the left side menu, then hit the “+ COINS” button and select the coins you want to add from the our list of almost 100 coins.
3 - Set the derivation path
A pop-up dialogue will appear, asking if the coin should be added. Hit the “ADVANCED SETTINGS” button. In the “Derivation Path” please enter:
- M/44H/0H/0H for coins forked from the Bitcoin blockchain (BCH, BTG, BTA, BTX, BTCP)
- M/44H/2H/0H for coins forked from the Litecoin blockchain (LCC)
- M/44H/147H/0H for coins forked from the ZClassic blockchain (BTCP)
Note that the characters before “H” are zeroes and not O’s.
Hint: If you had multiple Bitcoin (BTC) wallets in your Coinomi at the time of the fork, you will have to repeat the above process, replacing each time the last zero with the (zero-based) account index. So for the second wallet this would be M/44H/0H/1H, for the third wallet it would be M/44H/0H/2H, and so on.
4 - Now click “ADD”
That’s it! Your new wallet is now ready! After you see your balance, we recommend you add a default wallet of that coin (without altering the derivation path). Copy its address and send your coins to it. This way you won't have to change the derivation path every time you need to restore your wallet on a new phone. After the transaction confirms, you can tap+hold the wallet with the altered path to delete it.
"But I don't see my balance!"
If your balance is zero, there are 2 possibilities:
- Your BTC wallet isn't a default wallet
Tap+hold your BTC wallet, choose "... / Account details" and note its derivation path. The default BTC wallet has a derivation path of M/44H/0H/0H, but if yours is different, you should add a BTG wallet with the value you see in your "account details" screen.
You didn't have BTC at the time of the fork
The balance you see is exactly the amount of BTC you had at the time of the fork. Any deposits made after that block will not show up. Any withdrawals before that will reduce your balance. Your transaction history should mirror your BTC transaction history up to the fork block.
If you had Bitcoins in some other provider where you control the private keys, you can still claim your coins with Coinomi by following these instructions. Note that in this case, it's best that the new wallet DOES NOT have an altered path (leave default settings).
What about my BTC?
You can spend or move out your Bitcoins now, although Coinomi wallet is one of the safest places to keep them during forks. Unlike Exchanges, Coinomi cannot go down; we don’t hold your coins, you do (the private keys stay with you at all times).
