Dumping a Private Key - BCF Wallet

in #cryptocurrency2 years ago

I consider myself a newbie in cryptocurrency trading, mining and specially in staking in wallet. I am creating a simple but a useful means of recovering your wallet in cases that your computer fails/corrupted hdd or accidentally delete the %AppData% folder, in short you lost your wallet.dat.

The first step is to copy the address you intend to dump the private key.
(for multiple transactions/address, you need to generate private key per address)
1. The address.jpg

Then go to the debug window. (Tick on help, then debug then console.)
2. Debug window.jpg

In the command line type dumpprivkey [address], (the address here refers to the wallet address you copied from step 1)
3. dumpprivkey command.jpg

This will generate the BitcoinFastprivkey.

Copy this and paste it in notepad and save. You will need this [BitcoinFastprivkey] in recovering your wallet address/es. (Take note, you need to do this for each wallet address in your BCF Wallet)

Now, to use the generated privatekey. Type in the command line in the debug window, importprivkey [BitcoinFastprivkey]

That's it, a simple tutorial on dumping a private key and using it to recover loss wallet.dat.
