1  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / any way of deriving legacy private key from a segwit address for forked coins? on: February 07, 2018, 05:17:29 PM
Hi Guys,
I have recently (a couple of months ago) moved my BTC stash to a segwit address using Electrum wallet.
As you may be aware many of the forked coins do not support segwit addresses.
Its my understanding that the segwit addresses are derived from legacy addresses? Or have I got that completely wrong?
If they are derived from legacy addresses can I find out which legacy address and its corresponding private key from my segwit address?
Obviously the aim is to be able to import the derived legacy address into the forked coin wallet and receive my forked coins.
Or have I got this completely wrong and there is no way to get any legacy private key from a segwit address?
Thanks.

Hi all, I have had my account hacked around 10 days ago now.
Sent the admins Theymos and Cyrus a PM showing proof using a signed message and linking it to this post here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=996318.msg21177226#msg21177226
proving that I do indeed own the account and not a peep from either of them?
Any other way I can get my account back?

I have had my account "Machasm" hacked.
I have sent both Theymos and Cyrus with a signed message but I haven't had a reply yet.
Are there any other admins that can help?
