LegerHQ has just tweeted and confirmed that they will be supporting Bitcoin Gold on November 13. The new bitcoin will be launching today at 7PM UTC at block height 491407. Right now, testnet support is already operational and bitcoin gold team has confirmed on their official twitter account that everything is working as expected. The Bitcoin Gold will be added to your account automatically and no action is required from your end.
Do not trust any other third party service that offers you to split your bitcoin and bitcoin gold as there is a massive chance of getting your bitcoins stolen instead. As a general rule, never share your mnemonic with anyone.
Replay protection is there so if you spend or send your bitcoin gold to some other address, you will not loose your bitcoin. This feature was not present earlier at the split on October 24th 2017 when the chain spilt actually happened which is why the new bitcoin was snubbed by all major exchanges.
Now, the bitcoin gold will be up for trading on these exchanges – cex.io, changelly, hitbtc, binance, yobit, bleutrade, bitstar, bitfinex, coinnest, gate.io, okex, bitflyer, bitbay, beatcoin, changenow, paribu, abucoins and kkex. Feel free to transfer your BTG to one of these exchanges and sell it.
