Exodus, the popular bitcoin and cryptocurrency desktop wallet with built-in exchange today stated that the company will not support Bitcoin Cash (BCC) on the platform. Nevertheless, users of Exodus will still be able to claim their BCC by importing their private keys into the official BCC client after Aug 1st.
Exodus was designed to make it easy to hold blockchain assets. Exodus has a sophisticated backup and restore system that manages user private keys behind-the-scenes. Although Exodus does not recommend manual management of private keys many advanced users need to view and test private key interactions.
Each asset inside Exodus has a set of private keys. To view private keys:
- Open the Developer Menu. If using macOS, the Developer menu is under Exodus (to the right of the Apple in the menu bar). If using Windows or Linux, it can be accessed by pressing Ctrl+Shift+D
- Decide what asset (in this case, bitcoin) to view the private keys to
- Choose Developer > Assets > Bitcoin > Export Private Keys
- The private keys will be exported to a folder on the Desktop titled “exodus-exports”
Speaking with an Exodus developer regarding transacting in BTC during the event, he stated:
“It really depends on how the fork goes, to be honest. From how everything looks at this point, it should be fine, but you might want to avoid transactions until the ‘dust settles’.”
