What app should I use to import my wallet keys?


Since I don't know what wallet app on Android you're using, I'll give an answer that should work for any:

If you create an account at Coinbase, you can import your private keys and then send them to an address on your Android wallet. This requires the private keys being in plain text. If your private key export is encrypted (with a password you gave it) or encoded in some non-obvious fashion, you'll need something to decode it before using this option.

If it's encrypted in a way that's compatible with the desktop Bitcoin-QT client, you can reclaim it that way.

If it's encrypted some other way, you'll likely need to restore it to your Android phone and enter a password there to get access to your bitcoins. This would be specific to the app you're using.

If you're using Bitcoin Wallet, which seems to be the closest thing to an "official" Android client, choose "Back up Keys" from the menu (on my device, I press the Menu hardkey to open that), and then...

In this example, a paper wallet is imported and swept using Blockchain.info’s web wallet service. First, you will need to open your Blockchain.info wallet account and navigate to “Import / Export”. If you don’t already have an account, you can sign up for free.

Navigate to the “Import / Export” tab.

Here you can either type or copy/paste the paper wallet’s private key (i.e. if you have used a stand-alone QR scanner) into the text box and press “Add Private Key”. Or click “Scan With Webcam” to scan the QR code using your webcam.

Choose what type of private key import you wish to perform.

Blockchain.info gives you the option to import or sweep the paper wallet. Please make sure you understand the difference. It’s generally recommend to sweep the paper wallet instead of importing it.

You’ll be prompted whether to import or sweep.

Once you complete this process you should see the entire paper wallet balance added to your Blockchain.info account...

This article has 3 sections - one for the new Blockchain.info wallets based of BIP39 seeds, one for classic wallet addresses imported into the new wallet and one for the classic old wallets.

##For Blockchain.info's newer wallets based off a recovery phrase Note: Blockchain.info's new wallets make use of a bip39 recovery seed to generate EVERY ADDRESS and PRIVATE KEY in your Blockchain.info account. At this time it is not possible to extract only 1 address' private key so the only option is to make use of the recovery seed to gain access to the address that has your OmniTokens. Extreme care should be taken to perform the following steps on an airgapped/offline machine to preserve the possible integrity of your recovery seed. You may even want to consider this method a fallback/last resort and after completing the recovery actions discard all addresses/wallets/accounts and start a new Blockchain.info wallet. You have been warned

It is not easy to import a private-key into the Gulden wallet. This has to do with the fact that the Gulden wallet is a so called “HD Wallet” which traces back it’s private keys from one recovery sentence. Therefore it is impossible to insert a random private key in the HD wallet it it was not generated (or traced back) from the one recovery sentence.

Latest update: 7 april 2017

It is possible to do this with a so called legacy account which is based on the old structure of private keys like, for example, a Bitcoinwallet. You do require to have a legacy account in your HD wallet which you can achieve by following these steps:

WARNING! This procedure can only be followed with a desktop wallet and is not meant for beginners.

1. For step one it’s important to make sure that you properly saved the recovery sentence from your wallet. Use your desktop file manager and browse to the following (hidden) folder c:\Users\Eigenaar\AppData\Roaming\Gulden\ (Windows)...

Treat a paper wallet like a piggy bank: Add funds as often as you like, but only import (or "sweep") your funds once.

How to transfer bitcoins to a paper wallet

Open your live wallet software (e.g. Bitcoin-Qt or Electrum or Mycelium) or web-based wallet (e.g. blockchain.info, coinbase.com) and transfer funds from your live wallet to the public address shown on your paper wallet.

How to withdraw/spend bitcoins using a paper wallet

The way you will access your funds will be to "import" or "sweep" your paper wallet. This effectively transfers the coins from your paper wallet to a live wallet, whether that be electrum, bitcoin-QT, blockchain.info, etc. You should always sweep the complete balance, as it's not safe to try to spend directly from the paper wallet itself.

Virtually any wallet that includes a "import private key" feature will accept the private key hidden under the folds of your paper wallet. However, not 100% of wallets have this...

You may have noticed the Import/Export feature in your Blockchain Wallet before, but didn’t quite know what it is used for. Maybe you clicked it, but didn’t go any further because of the Advanced Security warning message. Don’t worry, the message just gives you a heads up that changes to the Import/Export section could impact your wallet and your bitcoins. It’s okay to proceed, but if you don’t know what you’re doing – you should not make any changes to this section until you fully understand the implications.

We’ll walk you through this section, which should help give you a better understanding of what it’s about and what you can do in this section.

When you land in the import/export section, you will see this page below.

Let’s start off with the first section on the left: Import

In the Import section, the first sub-section option you have is to add a Watch Only address. This means you can add any public bitcoin address in the world here and...

On computer B, if you've already moved the wallet.dat into the PPCoin directory, I recommend you delete the block index and block database located in the same directory. What is most likely happening is that the coins you have appeared in a block that had already by synchronized with the client on Computer B, when you first set it up (but the wallet didn't know to include them because it was working off of the default wallet.dat that was created).

As I understand it, the wallet.dat file doesn't digitally contain the coins (those records "live" in the block chain), so what it does is provide a pointer for the client, when it synchronizes a past block, to say "Hey, that is one of mine, record it in your ledger". If you've already synchronized the block chain, the client doesn't know about those coins yet (and from what I can tell, there's no built in process that will resynchronize the block chain when a new wallet.dat is detected).

Here is what I'd do:

All wallets are PIN protected - 4 incorrect attempts are possible before the main wallet password is required to be re-entered.


No, you can still access your wallet online using the web interface. To login all you need is your Wallet ID and your personal password. You can also use your backup phrase to regain access to your funds. Your encrypted wallet is always automatically backed up to our servers, so your web wallet will be as up to date as the wallet on your phone was.


If you enter an incorrect PIN 4 times you will simply be asked to re-enter your main password. If you have forgotten your main password, you can re-access your bitcoin by using your Backup Phrase.

1. Should I give my wallet seed to someone?

No, you should never share your wallet seed with anyone. Doing so is the equivalent of giving them all of your DCR in that wallet.

2. How can I convert my wallet seed hex to seed words?

You can use the dcrseedhextowords utility to convert a Decred seed from hex to the seed words needed for importing into wallets.

3. Can I run multiple wallets with the same seed?

Running multiple wallets with the same seed can lead to the situation where the wallets will not see the same balance. You should not run multiple wallets with the same seed.

The problem is simply that addresses are generated deterministically from the seed. So if you have two wallets running on the same seed, you basically end up with a situation like this:

Wallet A: Knows about all addresses up to address #15 Wallet B: Knows about all addresses up to address #12

So, any coins that have been sent to addresses #13, #14, and #15...

Bitcoin wallets. What are they?

Bitcoin Wallets let us send, receive and store Bitcoin amounts all the way down to the Satoshi unit.

Wallets secure funds by guarding our private keys. These private keys act as the proof of ownership for our Bitcoins. As such, a Bitcoin wallet is like a key to your safe deposit box on the Blockchain.

What is a private key?

Private keys emerged as a way to communicate securely through insecure communication channels.

Historically, before the advent of public key cryptography, the greatest cryptographic weakness was the inability to communicate the ‘key’ that makes sense of encrypted messages. As a solution, the use of two keys (public and private) entered the picture.

It’s a nifty little trick.

Keys come in pairs. The public key is used to encrypt the message whereas the private key decrypts the message. The only person with the private key is you. Everyone else is free to have your public...

If you accidentally used your Android wallet app such as Litecoin wallet app or Dogecoin wallet for P2P/Solo mining, you may end up in a nasty situation where your wallet app freezes and refuses to give you any money. (Oh No Much Lost!)

Well, there’s a simple way to import the private keys to your computer Litecoin/Dogecoin wallet.

First, find your backup keys from your wallet app then copy the file to your Linux/Mac. You will need Linux or Mac to decrypt your keys.

Open terminal and type:
openssl enc -d -aes-256-cbc -a -in this.key
Replace “this.key” with your key filename. And also make sure you are in the same directory as where the key file is.

If you have an encrypted wallet, it will ask you for the password.

You should get a bunch of random letter like “1KJSjsdh234lkasdlkBlahBlahBlah”.

Now, open up your Desktop wallet and Help->Debug Window->Console.

importprivkey "1KJSjsdh234lkasdlkBlahBlahBlah"

I've done as requested,

Version = Sia Client v1.0.0

consensus =

Synced: No
Height: 10144
Progress (estimated): 17%

I've managed to finally find the wallet key and delete it, but for some reason i had to run the following command in Mac terminal. When i did it suddenly built the file structure and wallet was one of those items.


I was then able to delete the wallet key. When i reopened the SIA-UI it asked me to created a new wallet and the passphrase and seed were identified. I took a copy of them for safe keeping.

To ensure i had the right information i tried to lock/unlock the wallet. Even with the copied and pasted passphrase it kept failing saying....

Which it shouldn't be as i've just copied and pasted the passphrase in exactly how it was shown to start...
