Getting your Private Keys from the Bitcoin Core wallet

320 ratings | 24916 views
In this tutorial we are going to get our private keys from the bitcoin core wallet. This only works when you created the bitcoin address in the same wallet. Because only when you create a new address you create a new private key that will be stored encrypted in your wallet.dat (your private key database)

Hello Bitcoin Daytrader....... Thanks and Merry Christmas to you and your's! You are a good man to be helping people as you are. I realize not all situations are solved the same way and hope you will review the information below to see if there are Any Options you can provide that may provide a solutiuon for my situation. *** You stated in a thread below that "without that wallet.dat file it is impossible to get the private key." Overview of Problem: I got into Bitcoin, Litecoin, Vertcoin & Dogecoin in 2014 to HODL I thought I had done the research and had it all diaded in back then, but low and behold I have problems with private keys and getting access to those funds. Still not clear if I need the Private Keys, if I have the information listed below. **Important to Note: several years ago my computer was infected with a virus, nothing to do with Crypto theft. It was around the same time of a switch to Bittorrent /Resilio. I thought I had backed files properly so that I could clean the virus. Please note, I did not use Resilio for long before going back to the Core wallets for each coin. *** FYI The old version of Resilio I used, is still on my PC. I see there may be a glimmer of Hope Re: VTC. - With the help of some stellar individuals in the VTC community, I have recently been able to restore the VTC wallet and it now shows the correct balance. I have yet to try and work with it in any way, but it gives me hope in recovering access to the other wallets & funds. Current Info I have for each coin as follows: Re: VTC, LTC & Doge. - In the beginning, I created and used the official Core wallet for each coin. As mentioned above, at some point it seems I switched to Resilio then back to Core wallets. - As the value of my investment in these 3 coins was not that large at the time, I made the decision (poor one) to leave them in the Core Wallets. Unfortunately with the virus fix implemented, things got mixed up and some files seemed to disappear. - I have all the original deposit transaction information for these coins and confirmed via Blockchain Explorer that all the funds are still there. - I also have a Recover Phase for each. However the # of words in the phase does not seem to match the number commonly associated with Recovery & Mnumonic phrases and leading me to beleive they may be related to a Brain Wallet setup? - I also have 3 old Resilio wallet.dat files (1) for LTC / (1) for Doge & (1) un-named, assumed to be for Bitcoin. This is where I need your assistance. Re: Doge I have an old version 4.8.5 of the Doge Core wallet on my PC, but it needs to be updated to latest version. - WOW Tab: When opened I see the following; "out of Sync" & "No block source available..... 263 weeks behind" - Much Receive Tab: When opened I see the original receive address I have on file, and is listed with "[No Label]" 1) What steps need to be taken, before upgrading to latest Core version? 2) Do I need to use the old resilio wallet.dat files as is, or do I need to update resilio to latest version first, before I can use them to update the New Core? 3) Does the Resilio wallet.dat files need to be converted to another format before adding it to the Core Wallet? Re: LTC I currently have version 14.2 of the Core wallet on my PC. - Core wallet is synced and up to date 12/27/2018 - There is no receive Address listed for the 2014 date, But when I check the box that allows me to re-use an "Old" Receive address, there is a Receive address listed that matches the 2014 date & address in my file. 1) What steps can you recommend to gain access to this wallet? Re: BTC. I currently have version V0.14.0 of the Core wallet on my PC. - Core wallet is synced and up to date 12/27/2018 - I created 2 Paper wallets using "Bitaddress.org". One for each of the 2 purchase transations I made. - I printed & have 2 scanable QR codes. However I missed the fact the private keys did not get included and did not take a screen shot before leaving the the Bit address generater (another dumb error due to inexperiance). - I have all the the original deposit transaction information and confirmed via Blockchain Explorer that all the funds are still there in the paper wallets. - I also have a Recovery Phase for each. However the # of words in the phase does not seem to match the number commonly associated with Recovery & Mnumonic phrases, leading me to beleive they may be related to a Brain Wallet setup? - As mentioned above, I have a 3rd unnamed Resilio wallet.dat file, which I assume be for the Bitcoin. Again it appears to be an old version of a Resilio .dat file. 1) What steps can you recommend to gain access to this wallet? 2) Do I need to use the old resilio wallet.dat files as is, or do I need to update resilio to latest version first, before I can use them to update the New Core? 3) Does the Resilio wallet.dat files need to be converted to another format before adding it to the Core Wallet? Sorry for the lenght of this post, but figured the more info you have, the less time will be required by you to determine if you can actually help me. Is there anything I can help you with? Cheers Terry

"Spend the money." What money? This is a free service.
Bitcoin Daytrader (7 months ago)
I am trying to get into that subject, I have heard something about Master Nodes, but I do not know exactly what that means. Apparently Master Nodes get paid to keep a node 24/7 online. If I know more about the details I will make a video about the subject.
Norman Powell (7 months ago)
I don't think I worded my remark properly. How does a person earn using Bitcoin Core, or is it possible at all. I am running a full node to keep an up to date copy of the blockchain. Beyond that, nothing.

Hello, can you decrypt the password from this hash? I can not remember the length of the password and what characters I do not remember, but it seems like the following values ​​can be there: 83 & joy I personally pulled the hash from the file myself and tried, busting 2 million words but without result. This file was found in Google it was publicly available and was laid out with the goal that it could be hacked by anyone who could be hacked, there is a coin bitcoin coin, but since 2015, it has not been possible to break it to anyone. Whether you can decrypt the hash, or you can have any large database of valid passwords, then I would try to scan them myself. Well, if you can choose a password, then I'll give you 20 percent of the coin's coinage ... $bitcoin$64$9269f788d7bcecd411d95cc222c9f0cdf7ebfc6fa33847607f7b8c1338a2c3f8$16$10cb87989a39ef71$60692$96$31f40dacb48f2aae7bd601bb50f1d4ce3ef826e0307539665ac80dba7a42480dc76de571876a82af347d7a01bd3cfb6c$66$03faef628e4cc1aec8438e8459364cfd0f867500beb9bdb17383d803cd02946c01

FishyTrout (8 months ago)
Hi Bitcoin Daytrader, my wallet.dat started back in 05/2017. I still don’t have bitcoin coin 100% synced yet. What does this mean for me? I started interest into it last year but never figured out what I was doing. Please help a brother out. Thanks.
FishyTrout (8 months ago)
Bitcoin Daytrader I started this a year ago and never checked anything
Bitcoin Daytrader (8 months ago)
But usually you know that you have btc on a certain address when asking for the private keys of that address ;)
Bitcoin Daytrader (8 months ago)
Hey FishyTrout, I personally use the Electrum Bitcoin Wallet which can be downloaded here: https://electrum.org/#download !!!!! Only download the wallet from the official website, because there is fake btc stealing malware called electrum-pro !!!!! Create a New wallet, when the next screen asks you what kind of wallet you want to create, chose the last option: Import Bitcoin Addresses or Private Keys Press Next, in following screen copy paste the private key(s). Only in this (import Bitcoin Addresses) type of wallet you unlock the option to import more private keys. If you accidentally start with the default wallet (which has no import privkey option) do the following: Open the default wallet (which we only use one time for opening purposes and we ignore later on) Once the wallet is loaded go to File -- New/Restore ctrl + N this will popup the create new wallet screen and select Import Bitcoin Addresses option ,, I hope this helps you out
John Cabot (9 months ago)
I think you're mistaken on one thing, each wallet only has 1 private key, and addresses are generated based on the private key, not the other way around... as was stated @2:56. Also, it's easier to make a copy of the Bitcoin "wallet.dat" file(Users "username" appdata>roaming>bitcoin>wallet.dat), as it has the private key in it.
Bitcoin Daytrader (9 months ago)
Hey John, Thanks for your view!! It sounds as if you are mixing up the BIP32 Mnemonic Code (sometimes called seed) with the private keys. There are multiple different private keys in a wallet.dat file, however if the wallet has a deterministic seed than all the private keys can be derived from only that seed (A seed is in principle the 12 word backup phrase, also known as the Mnemonic Code) From these Private keys one can derive the Public keys, which will be used to generate the btc addresses. I hope you understand that my address to private key statement was just a joke ;)

MzGorgeous Grier (9 months ago)
I loved this video...the best tutorial I've seen on Bitcoin thus far :) But alas, I do have one question....suppose i want to be deposit into my wallet using an atm machine....do i need an 'address' for that? :)
Bitcoin Daytrader (9 months ago)
Thank you MzGorgeous Grier, I do not have any experience with a Bitcoin ATM, I have never seen one in my life, but If you do deposit money using an ATM I expect you to need to have an address with you (or a QR code of one of your addresses), if this is not the case then maybe the ATM will generate a new address for you.

Good video, but if I have the private key does it mean I don’t need to back up the .dat file??
Bitcoin Daytrader (1 year ago)
It is better to use the wallet.dat backup, because it is encrypted with your password. The wallet.dat contains a list "database" of all the private keys your wallet did create for you over time. The idea of getting the private key would be to be able to get access to the same address in forked (copied) blockchains of coins like Bitcoin-Cash, Bitcoin-Gold. Most wallets create new addresses (privKeys) per received transaction, so keep the backup file.
ferndawg (1 year ago)
Good tutorial... I sent funds to a Bitcoin core wallet and cannot completely download the blockchain due to limited hard drive space... thus, my Bitcoins are stuck. Can I recover those funds by exporting the keys from my Bitcoin core wallet and using them on a different wallet?
Bitcoin Daytrader (1 year ago)
Hi Fern, Thanks for your subscription, it means a lot to me! Yes you can, whenever you have got a private key you are able to import that key in a new wallet and send the funds. I suggest you to use https://electrum.org/#download since it does not require you to download the entire blockchain and the electrum wallet has got an import privkey option.

Bitcoin Daytrader (1 year ago)
Hi Rasel, thank you for watching my video! Bitcoin-core is the wallet that downloads the entire bitcoin blockchain (that is why they call it core), a lot of people used this wallet back in 2012-2014 back when the blockchain was not 150+GB. If your wallet looks something like this wallet you can use this technique as well.

Awesome! Private key secured! Can you do a video on how to claim Bitcoin Cash from a Bitcoin Core wallet?
Bitcoin Daytrader (1 year ago)
Hey you can use the electron cash wallet from https://electroncash.org/ First check on https://blockdozer.com on which address there is BCH, since there was a hard fork on august 1st all BTC on that date was copied to BCH. Some info on BCH (just ignore the multibit wallet part) https://youtu.be/quxG0sqv_Io When you know your addresses you need to get the private keys from bitcoin core like in this tutorial. Open ElectronCash, make a new wallet and import the private keys like in my tutorial If the import function is unavailable you can fix it like this 1 Create a new wallet (File\New-restore Ctrl+N) 2 Give it a name, press next 3 Chose Standard Wallet, press next 4 Use Public or private keys, press next 5 Enter here at least one of your BTC/BCC private key (This will generate the BCC wallet with the import function) 6 Within this new electron cash wallet you can add private keys just like I did in the tutorial (Wallet\Privatekeys\Import)

Hey Hari, It seems that you are forgetting to unlock your wallet first write dowe this: walletpassphrase YOURPASSWORD 1200 remember that the 1200 number is the amount of seconds you are able to get the private keys.
