How do I update Exodus Wallet

Claim Bitcoin Gold in the Exodus wallet

With the current version of the Exodus wallet, version 1.43.x, this wallet not only supports Bitcoin Gold as a crypto currency, but it is even possible to claim the corresponding amount of Bitcoin Gold - or to claim, as it is called in English - to which all Bitcoin owners are entitled.

Bitcoin Gold is a hard fork that took place on October 24, 2017. Everyone who owned a certain amount of Bitcoin on October 24th is entitled to the same amount of Bitcoin Gold.

With the new version, Exodus helps you to claim the amount of Bitcoin Gold as you had Bitcoin in your Exodus wallet on October 24th. If you had 0.25 Bitcoin on October 24, 2017, you can claim 0.25 Bitcoin Gold with Exodus.
