BitPay is pushing this new BCH address format. They implemented BCH on their blockexplorer and copay wallet. It seems they are flirting with acceptance of BCH for merchants. Should we embrace this new transaction format in order to encourage them to accept Bitcoin Cash?

Next on the Bitcoin Cash development roadmap: upgrading Address format on Jan 14th

next for bitcoin cash development: https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/pipermail/bitcoin-ml/2017-Novembe000472.html
upgrading the address format.
The C/H format is a copay workaround built on TOP of the protocol.
this would be a change in the code itself.
seems to be consensus on moving forward with this change.

Ok, now that Bitcoin.com Wallet supports BCH BIP70 transactions, it appears that it is currently the best wallet for doing Bitcoin Cash transactions with Bitpay merchants. Here's why...

A week ago, Bitpay (largest payment processor) rolled out Bitcoin Cash (BCH) support to 100,000+ merchants.
At the time of the rollout, the only wallets that supported BCH BIP70 transactions were the Bitpay Wallet & Copay Wallet.
But there's a problem: Bitpay Wallet & Copay Wallet only support BCH CashAddr & Copay address formats, and do not support the BCH legacy address format. Meanwhile, LedgeTrezoJaxx wallets ONLY support the BCH legacy address format. To send BCH back & forth between these wallets, people have to use an online tool to convert the address formats. Very awkward.
Now, it seems that Bitcoin.com Wallet has rolled out support for BCH BIP70 transactions.
I've briefly tried out both the Bitcoin.com Wallet and Bitpay Wallet, and it appears that Bitcoin.com Wallet is currently the best choice for doing BCH transactions with Bitpay merchants. Here's why:
Let me know your thoughts.

Ugh. It appears that Trezor Wallet only recognizes BCH "legacy" addresses, while Bitpay Wallet only displays BCH "cashaddr" or "copay" addresses. Use https://cashaddr.bitcoincash.org to do address format conversions.

Bitpay Wallet only dispalys BCH CashAddr or Copay format addresses, but not the Legacy format address.
But Trezor & Ledger & Jaxx Wallets don't support the new BCH CashAddr format.
And the Trezor doesn't support the Copay format address either. Ledger & Jaxx might be in the same situation.
What this means is that if you have a TrezoLedgeJaxx Wallet, and want to send BCH to a Bitpay Wallet, you'll probably have to use an online conversion tool to get the BCH Legacy address format.
u/spair , it's probably best for the Bitpay Wallet to have the option of showing BCH legacy format addresses, to make it easier to transfer BCH from TrezoLedgeJaxx Wallets to Bitpay Wallets.

Bitcoin 101: How to store your Bitcoin?

Bitcoin 101: How to store your Bitcoin?
THIS IS AN ARTICLE FROM COINDESK
link: https://www.coindesk.com/information/how-to-store-your-bitcoins
Before owning any bitcoin, you need somewhere to store them. That place is called a “wallet.” Rather than actually holding your bitcoin, it holds the private key that allows you to access your bitcoin address (which is also your public key). If the wallet software is well designed, it will look as if your bitcoins are actually there, which makes using bitcoin more convenient and intuitive.
Actually, a wallet usually holds several private keys, and many bitcoin investors have several wallets.
Wallets can either live on your computer and/or mobile device, on a physical storage gadget, or even on a piece of paper. Here we’ll briefly look at the different types.

Actually, a wallet usually holds several private keys, and many bitcoin investors have several wallets.
Wallets can either live on your computer and/or mobile device, on a physical storage gadget, or even on a piece of paper. Here we’ll briefly look at the different types.
📷
Electronic wallets
Electronic wallets can be downloaded software, or hosted in the cloud. The former is simply a formatted file that lives on your computer or device, that facilitates transactions. Hosted (cloud-based) wallets tend to have a more user-friendly interface, but you will be trusting a third party with your private keys.
Software wallet
Installing a wallet directly on your computer gives you the security that you control your keys. Most have relatively easy configuration, and are free. The disadvantage is that they do require more maintenance in the form of backups. If your computer gets stolen or corrupted and your private keys are not also stored elsewhere, you lose your bitcoin.
They also require greater security precautions. If your computer is hacked and the thief gets a hold of your wallet or your private keys, he also gets hold of your bitcoin.
The original software wallet is the Bitcoin Core protocol, the program that runs the bitcoin network. You can download this here (it doesn’t mean that you have to become a fully operational node), but you’d also have to download the ledger of all transactions since the dawn of bitcoin time (2009). As you can guess, this takes up a lot of memory – at time of writing, over 145GB.
Most wallets in use today are “light” wallets, or SPV (Simplified Payment Verification) wallets, which do not download the entire ledger but sync to the real thing. Electrum is a well-known SPV desktop bitcoin wallet that also offers “cold storage” (a totally offline option for additional security). Exodus can track multiple assets with a sophisticated user interface. Some (such as Jaxx) can hold a wide range of digital assets, and some (such as Copay) offer the possibility of shared accounts.
Online wallet
Online (or cloud-based) wallets offer increased convenience – you can generally access your bitcoin from any device if you have the right passwords. All are easy to set up, come with desktop and mobile apps which make it easy to spend and receive bitcoin, and most are free.
The disadvantage is the lower security. With your private keys stored in the cloud, you have to trust the host’s security measures, and that it won’t disappear with your money, or close down and deny you access.
Some leading online wallets are attached to exchanges (such as Coinbase and Blockchain). Some offer additional security features such as offline storage (Coinbase and Xapo).
Mobile wallets
Mobile wallets are available as apps for your smartphone, especially useful if you want to pay for something in bitcoin in a shop, or if you want to buy, sell or send while on the move. All of the online wallets and most of the desktop ones mentioned above have mobile versions, while others – such as Abra, Airbitz and Bread – were created with mobile in mind.
Hardware wallets
Hardware wallets are small devices that occasionally connect to the web to enact bitcoin transactions. They are extremely secure, as they are generally offline and therefore not hackable. They can be stolen or lost, however, along with the bitcoins that belong to the stored private keys. Some large investors keep their hardware wallets in secure locations such as bank vaults. Trezor, Keepkey and Ledger and Case are notable examples.
Paper wallets
Perhaps the simplest of all the wallets, these are pieces of paper on which the private and public keys of a bitcoin address are printed. Ideal for the long-term storage of bitcoin (away from fire and water, obviously), or for the giving of bitcoin as a gift, these wallets are more secure in that they’re not connected to a network. They are, however, easier to lose.
With services such as WalletGenerator and BitcoinPaperWallet, you can easily create a new address and print the wallet on your printer. Fold, seal and you’re set. Send some bitcoin to that address, and then store it safely or give it away. (See our tutorial on paper wallets here.)
Are bitcoin wallets safe?
That depends on the version and format you have chosen, and how you use them.
The safest option is a hardware wallet which you keep offline, in a secure place. That way there is no risk that your account can be hacked, your keys stolen and your bitcoin whisked away. But, if you lose the wallet, your bitcoin are gone, unless you have created a clone and/or kept reliable backups of the keys.
The least secure option is an online wallet, since the keys are held by a third party. It also happens to be the easiest to set up and use, presenting you with an all-too-familiar choice: convenience vs safety.
Many serious bitcoin investors use a hybrid approach: they hold a core, long-term amount of bitcoin offline, while having a “spending balance” for liquidity in a mobile account. Your choice will depend on your bitcoin strategy, and your willingness to get “technical.”
Whatever option you go for, please be careful. Back up everything, and only tell your nearest and dearest where your backups are stored.

Trying to sell some BCH to noobs and it fails because of the new address format clusterfuck

Simply put, noobs are super confused by the new address format and copay format does not make it easier. this address format upgrade is the single most greatest fuckup bitcoin cash has witnessed so far. I am simply unable to sell coins because non-tech people WILL FAIL AND FAIL AND FAIL AGAIN to understand WTF is wrong with the address format. They are unable to translate between different formats and they don't know what is going on and it makes them scared and they don't want to deal with BCH at all. fucking hell, thanks a lot. I'm trying to do business here and you have completely fucked me up with that Bech32, the copay issue alone made great damage to Bitcoin Cash. it would be some much easier if we just sticked to base58

Do not use copay wallet for Bitcoin Cash, it is absolutely horrible

Just sold some bitcoin cash to a coworker who used copay wallet. I asked for his address and he gave me the new bullshit address format that I have personally rejected. I was unable to insert that new address format to coinmix.to so obviously legacy address was what I needed. However, copay is such a cluster fuck that instead of showing the true Bitcoin Cash address which some prefer to call the legacy format, it offered an alternative to show its own madeup address format that is supported nowhere. So I spent some agonizing time searching for a converter to get the true Bitcoin Base58 address. So, I curse everyone responsible for having come up with those dumbass new address formats. Both the Copay and the Bech32 formats are absolutely disastrous and create MORE confusion than they intended to clear.

Did I just lose some BCH?

I made the following transaction using Copay (Bitpay):
https://bch-insight.bitpay.com/address/CMdbfkpcsULG3bPBZX9nvng4QNeBnDQ1PQ
That address is the address Copay picked up when I scanned the QR code, but I've just noticed that the address I think I should have sent it to is 1EP2XZvzbK8VN8tYrmQSiuJ6aPnpVYaykn.
Reading this: https://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/61097/bitpay-copays-weird-bitcoin-cash-address-format It looks like Bitpay have done some conversion of the address. (Address matches if I use this: https://bitpay.github.io/address-translato). What I'm not clear on, is whether that transaction will eventually make it's way to the correct address?
Thankfully it was only a small amount to make sure the transaction went through OK, so if I lose it, it's not the end of the world (although will still be a bummer).

I tried to deposit to /u/tippr after withdrawing, and now I lost $0.25.

Yes, I knew what I was doing. I used Bitpay and Copay's address translator to withdraw. Prior to that, the original address wasn't accepted by tippr, which I confused with a withdrawing format problem.
Since it worked with withdrawing, it must work in depositing! My wallet, Bitpay, doesn't support sending addresses that aren't their format with BCH (due to being too similar to BTC addresses), which is why I used the translator.
Anyway, I sent, transaction confirmed, but my balance still shows 0 BCH.
I wanted to bring to light that tippr should support sending and receiving Bitcoin Cash to Bitpay (and Copay) addresses. I ended up having to look for a solution after an hour of figuring out how to withdraw the BCH, which was the translator.

Does Shapeshift not accept Copay adresses for Bitcoin Cash?

EDIT: Solved it with this tool: https://bitpay.github.io/address-translato
But this sucks big time!
I try to send ETH and get BCH from Shapeshift.io. But I get this general error message everytime I try:
"There was an error creating your order, please try again in a few minutes."
(I also tried to mess with the address by removing the last letter, and get the same message. So I get this general error message when the address is wrong.)
I noticed that the BCH address generated by Copay looks weired. It starts with "CSfWap..."
I also read somwhere that BitPay (who make Copay) are making their own Bitcoin Cash address format, or something along those lines.
What is going on here? Do I have to use another Bitcoin Cash wallet app for my Android phone to receive BCH from Shapeshift?
BTC.COM wallet asks for my email, don't want that. Upgraded my Jaxx wallet. Still no BCH support. I think Bitcoin.com's wallet is based on Copay, but haven't tried it yet. No BCH support in Mycelium.

Looking for the perfect storage solution

I'm looking for a solution that would give me complete peace of mind, even if bitcoin would increase in value by a 1000 times (meaning, a lot more would be at stake).
I would like it to meet the following requirements:
  1. No single point of failure
  2. Easy to test all recovery modes regularly
Examples of a single point of failure could be:
The main options I've considered are Copay and BitGo.

Copay

My parents are divorced so I would trust them not to collude against me unless something bad has happened to me. So I could set up a 2-of-4 multisig wallet with Copay. Testing the recovery mode would just mean letting my parents create or sign a transaction, so that's simple.
What I don't like about Copay is that it's not easy to make a paper backup so I would have to rely on digital storage. And the backup is in some format specific to Copay. I would be more comfortable if it just listed the BIPs and keys so anyone with enough knowledge of Bitcoin could recover the wallet, even without using Copay software. And also I can't let my parents sign a transaction without them seeing my balance. It would be good if it were possible to define "second class" signers in Copay who can function as a kind of 2FA but can't see your balance or transactions.

BitGo

My problem with BitGo is that the recovery tool isn't very convenient. I tried getting it to work but it's giving errors. I'm sure it can be solved but having to install npm etc. still isn't very convenient. It's also not clear to me if testing recovery decreases the security of a wallet.
And it's not clear how my loved ones would access my funds in case something happens to me.

Any suggestions for a solution that would meet my needs?

Preferably I could read about how the solution addresses each of my concerns before having to try it out.
