[Megathread] On August 1, 2017 at 6:12pm UTC (block 478559), a new altcoin called Bcash (BCH) has been created using Bitcoin's transaction history. Bitcoin itself continues to function normally.

What is happening?

In what has been touted as the culmination of a multi-year scaling debate, on August 1, 2017 at 6:12pm UTC (block 478559) a new altcoin was created from Bitcoin. The new altcoin is known as "Bcash" (BCH) or "Bitcoin Cash" (BCC) depending on which wallet/exchange you ask. In order to avoid confusion with actual Bitcoin and other altcoins, we recommend readers refer to the new altcoin as "Bcash" (BCH).
As with all altcoins, Bcash is technically off-topic for the /Bitcoin subreddit. However, Bcash was created based on Bitcoin's transaction history, and therefore all Bitcoin owners should be able to retrieve an equal amount of Bcash with some effort. Your Bitcoins are just as safe as they were before the chain split, but you should take care not to compromise your private keys if you wish to retrieve Bcash. This is not urgent unless you wish to trade immediately. If you choose to retrieve your Bcash, please be aware that consolidating your UTXOs will impact your privacy on both chains.
In order to help readers navigate this confusing situation and minimize disruption of relevant content, /Bitcoin has dedicated this sticky thread where readers can ask questions or leave comments pertaining to Bcash. If you are wondering how to retrieve your new altcoin holdings, please read the discussion thoroughly as your questions may already have been answered. If you don't see a similar question, please be sure to mention your wallet method and preferred exchange so that other readers can help address your concerns. You are also invited to submit new threads to the /Bcash subreddit if you so choose.
If you would like to understand the motives behind this new altcoin, please read The Future of “Bitcoin Cash:” An Interview with Bitcoin ABC lead developer Amaury Séchet.
A Beginner’s Guide to Claiming Your “Bitcoin Cash” (and Selling It) is a must-read for anyone feeling particularly lost.

But I thought we avoided a chain split?

For those of you who thought we avoided a chain split with the activation of BIP91 a couple weeks ago, here's a very loose summary of what happened on the Segwit (BIP141, BIP148, BIP91) front:
  1. Bitcoin Core team deployed Segwit (BIP141) last year
  2. Miners refused to activate Segwit via BIP9
  3. Users deployed UASF (BIP148 by shaolinfry) to require Segwit (BIP141) signaling by August 1st
  4. Miners activated BIP91 (by James Hilliard) on July 20th in response to UASF (BIP148)
  5. BIP91 complied with UASF (BIP148) by enforcing Segwit (BIP141) signaling ahead of August 1st
  6. Segwit BIP141 is expected to lock in on Tuesday, August 8th
  7. Segwit BIP141 is expected to activate on Monday, August 21st
  8. BIP148 activated successfully without any chain split
  9. Another altcoin called "SegWit2x" (B2X) may be created later this year, similar to Bcash but with less safety precautions regarding replay protection
Despite all the progress we're making in scaling Bitcoin both on-chain and off-chain, the Bcash crew has decided to part ways with the Bitcoin project by creating a new altcoin. The key differences are that they are attempting to gut Segwit from their forked client, as well as increasing the deprecated max_block_size attribute to 8MB.

Various Announcements:

Electrum 1 - Electrum 2 - Trezor - Ledger - Coinbase - Breadwallet - Bitfinex - Airbitz - Blockchain.info - Exodus - Jaxx - Kraken - Bittrex - Greyscale - Yobit - Bitcoin Core - Bitstamp - [Mycelium]() - [GreenAddress]() - BitcoinTalk - (Reply in comments to add other services)

/Bitcoin wishes Bcash a happy farewell and the best of luck in their new venture!

Haven't touched my wallet in 3 years. Opened it again, the entire transaction history is gone, no bitcoins

As the title says. I haven't touched my wallet in about 3 years now. I found my 24 word seed, and restored the wallet. 0 bitcoins.
I next checked my public key, 0 bitcoins, no history. I'm sure the public key is correct, since it's been posted on a static website for ~4 years. Any idea what could be happening here?

The 5 biggest Bitcoin transactions in history

Not only do these transactions indicate the concentrations of wealth Bitcoin has helped create, but they also provide clear examples of Bitcoin’s strengths.
Taking the top spot, one Bitcoin wallet moved 161,500 BTC on April 10, 2020. At the time, this bitcoin was worth roughly $1.1 billion, making it the biggest bitcoin transaction of all-time.

Bitfinex completed the largest transaction in the history of Bitcoin for $1.1 billion for $0.70 commission.

On Friday, a transaction worth over $1.1 bln was recorded at the Bitcoin Block Chain for 161,500 BTCs. The processing fee was only $0.70. This transaction turned out to be the largest in dollar terms for the whole time of the cryptographic currency existence.
Subsequently, the technical director of Bitfinex Paolo Ardoino said that the transaction belongs to his company. "We added 15k to the hot wallet and sent the rest back," he wrote.
The same information is confirmed by the data in the block office. 15,000 BTC went into Bitfinex's hot wallet, while 146,500 returned to the original address.
A week earlier, Xapo's crypto-castodial service had moved 100,000 BTCs, or $633 million at the rate at that time, paying $0.26 for processing.
In both cases, the commission was only a small fraction of what it would have been if it had moved such amounts through traditional services. Thus, the TransferWise money transfer service charges for the maximum allowed transaction of $1 million over $3,600 commission and processes it within three days.
"Yes, the commission was less than a dollar, but the real cost is that you have to buy new pants after sending a $1.1 billion irrevocable transaction," writes bitcoin enthusiast Kyle Torpy.
The Bitfinex transfer surpassed the previous record bitcoin transaction of $1 billion recorded in September 2019. The largest number of Bitcoins - 500,000 - was transferred at one time in November 2011, but they were worth only $1.32 million at the time.
Jameson Lopp, Casa's technical director of custodial services, said meanwhile, that this week they had sent the bitcoins through a blockage to 550 users for a commission of $1.23 or $0.002 per recipient. "I am amazed at what can be achieved without being time-consuming and with a healthy respect for space constraints in the blocks," he writes.

How to get transaction history for a ledger Bitcoin address

Hey so I'm an Aussie and we've got the mother of all regulations on crypto here. Our federal tax office wants every transaction, from every address, all of the fees, the prices of all tokens involved in AUD at the time of transaction. Etc. Etc.
Long story short, I need to get alot of data for my tax agent. And the bit I'm up to, is getting the bitcoin transactions in CSV form, from my ledger. The built in 'export transactions as CSV' feature on ledger live doesn't have enough data to satiate Australian tax regulations. However, looking up the Ethereum wallet addresses listed on ledger live with something like etherscan, does provide me with enough info to export as a CSV. I get a nice list of transactions in and out of that wallet address, fees, times etc.
I need the same thing for my Bitcoin addresses. But when I look them up on the public blockchain with something like blockstream, I get this giant list of fractured data, with confirmations and all kinds of unnecessary info, but not the essential stuff, like a transaction history. It's hard to even find the total balance for a single wallet, that I can easily see on ledger live.
Does anyone know how to get a nice, linear transaction history from a Bitcoin address, complete with fees, time, hash number etc. So I can give it to the tax man?
And for other Aussies out there suffering, if I can tie up this last loose end ill do up a little guide for the rest of us trying to get through this shit
