Title: wallet recovery
Post by: LSU777 on January 14, 2021, 01:49:02 PM
So i have an old wallet and have the blocktrail recovery. I ran the tool on recovery.btc.com and identified how much I have. I need to broadcast the raw transaction and really dont know how. I know i have to either follow the guide or use a site to do it. Trying to make this easy, is there one where I can input the raw transaction data, pay a fee and have the transaction processed nice and easy?

You can easily broadcast signed transactions using: coinb.in/#Broadcast.

I assume the transaction is signed? You can also script your own raw transaction, decode and sign them on the same site. I would recommend to do those offline if you have to. It has to be broadcasted online.

Edit: Isn't there a button that lets you broadcast the generated raw transaction?

Yes the button keeps saying error when i press it.

How do I know if it is signed or not?

It would be helpful to know which error you are being presented.

Well.. how did you create the transaction in the first place.
Without signing it, you won't be able to broadcast it.

Did you try using coinb.in as suggested?

When I click Broadcast transaction via SPV Bridge it gives me the following error

"Failed to send Transaction
An error was returned: Error: Unknown Server Error"




So im thinking i may be able to just import the wallet. I have the email address used and access to email, Wallet Identifier, encrypted primary seed (48 word phrase), backup seed (24 word), encrypted recovery secret (72 word phrase), public key, password encrypted secret( 72 word phrase), wallet decryption secret, the blocktrail wallet identifier, first address of the wallet.

is it possible just to import the wallet? i do not have the password. I do know the exact amount in the wallet too.

I have reached out to the support@btc.com but have gotten crickets the last few days.

Depends on how long your password is. I can't find the exact specification for their seeds generation or encryption for that matter, can't help you there sorry.

Copy the line of numbers that's displayed in the box.

Go to coinb.in/#verify and check that the transaction checks out. If it does, go to coinb.in/#broadcast, paste the same line in and broadcast to the network.

if the wallet was pre fork, would there be BCH, SV and gold in there too? if so how do I recover those?

You can only recover those if the balance is from 2017. Is it?

If it is, there are a few steps:

1 - Move your bitcoin to another wallet
2 - Download a wallet that support BCH BSV and BTG. Coinomi is a good option, but if you have you can use a ledger nano as well.

Be careful because there are a lot of security risks while doing it

I made a simple guide here (long ago, but still works)

yes its pre 2017. and i recovered the BCH just now, only about 100 worth so not much.

the recovery tool essentially said I needed to wait to recover and diamond until the bch transaction is confirmed. Ill wait until that is complete.

this time the btc recovery tool broadcast the transaction easily. so it was a couple quick steps. hopefully diamond and gold are that away too.

now on to finding my 12 word see for my old samourai wallet.

I will say, I bought some expensive ass exercise equipment in 2016, shit is worth about 100k now  :-\



how long does a btc broadcast like that usually take to be confirmed? been a long time since i have done any of these types of transactions.

It doesn't matter how it was broadcast... what matters is the "fee rate" used.

If you have a look here: https://jochen-hoenicke.de/queue/#0,24h
and here: https://mempool.space/

You'll see there are currently something like 130+ blocks of unconfirmed transactions (~100,000 transactions in total)... as such, fee rates being used are quite high... and anything less than 100 sats/vbyte is probably going to take hours if not days to get confirmed.

What is the fee rate that your transaction used? ???

it was 79.719 sat/B

I didnt get to chose how much, btc.com auto generated that with the raw transaction data.

Coinbase gave me the alert they received it, just waiting of confirmation. No big deal now that I know it went through.

also for anyone wondering if you have the blocktrail wallet pdf, you can go to https://recovery.btc.com/ to recover the btc and https://bch-recovery.btc.com/ to recover the BCH. If you do the bch it will auto send you the SV too.

for those that do so, if the broadcast button doesn't work, simply do like these guys in here said and go to coinb.in and paste the raw data in the verify and then do the same under broadcast tab if verification goes through.


wanted to say thank yall so much. I appreciate more than yall know.
