You want to make sure you keep the private keys to your Ethereum Classic (“ETC”) stored in one of the “guaranteed” wallets so that you can receive the 1:1 Callisto airdrop. The best solution in our opinion is using ClassicEtherWallet .
Once ETC reaches the 5,500,000 block a snapshot will be taken. All current holders of ETC are eligible to receive Callisto at a 1:1 ratio.
You can check the current block height here at gastracker.io . This should roughly occur on or about Monday March 5, 2018.
- Guarda Wallet
- Trust Wallet
- MyEtherWallet can support Callisto as well but it depends on MEW developers. If they will not add Callisto support then you can just use MyEtherWallet accounts on ClassicEtherWallet – they are compatible.

select the “View Wallet Info”:
Step 2: Select the option to access your wallet.
In our opinion, you should try to use the Trezor, Ledger or MetaMask options for optimal security.
In this case, we will use the Trezor. A pop-up window will appear.
Then enter your TREZOR PIN:
Step 3: Select one of your Trezor addresses to unlock your wallet:
Step 4: Copy your Public Key:
Step 5: Enter your Public Key (from Step 4 above) to the Withdraw/Send Address
at your Exchange or other wallet.
In this example, I will be sending from a JAXX wallet that I had previously been mining to:
Step 6: Back at ClassicEtherWallet, you can check on the status of your transfer
as shown below:
Step 7: After a few minutes, (and 12 confirmations) your private keys
should now be safely stored on your Trezor:
