wallet bitcoin-core multibit wallet.dat restore. share|improve this question.
Finally I was able to get my computer fixed and download a new version of Bitcoin-Qt. Now I would like to import my original wallet.dat from the old client which was encrypted into an new version of Bitcoin-Qt. How do I do that?
No blockchain download! Full tutorial how to export private keys and wallet.dat file from Bitcoin Core, and import private keys into MultBit.
But when I went to bitcoin site I saw that the client was different and very heavy. The site recommend to install Multibit. I got Multibit, but found out that I couldn't import the old wallet.dat, they wanted a different format.
#1 "bitcoin does not go into your pc, but to your wallet". OP is talking about a local wallet, namely bitcoin core as indicated by the wallet.dat filename. Thus, the crucial private keys are stored in the wallet file, which is not "online".
MultiBit is the bitcoin wallet for your desktop. It currently works with Windows, OSX, and Linux.
I had a really hard time converting my Bitcoin-QT wallet.dat files to something that is possible to import to Multibit Wallet. (Not that hard but stupid to go all that way for something that should have been simple) So I ended up writing a python program to do so from now on.
Sweep a Paper Wallet. Paper wallets are sometimes received as gifts from another Bitcoin user. Unfortunately, the procedure described here for securely importing paper wallets into MultiBit is complicated.
OWF.py reads the keys from Bitcoin-QT wallet (e.g wallet.dat) and exports them to MultiBit wallet format (e.g multibit.key) but also applicable for Blockchain.info imports.
