I have about 500$ of a friends money in btc hanging somewhere because the app crashed. By security I mean, I would like to know for sure that the next step I take gives me back the money and doesnt make it dissapear again.

This is all very complicated for people who just want to use some btc. Wallets fail and we do not have (nor should have) the knowledge people have that are involved.

Anyway this is besides the point!
I am very happy you're helping me out.

The mycelium on my tablet is in use with the seed from my phone. So it has coins and history

I tried electrum and was able to enter the private key that crashed on my phone app and got the balance from that key that got stuck on my phone, but when trying to send it from electrum it says no funds. Someone found a solution to this problem exporting from electrum to another wallet (tried multibit) but that didnt work (crashes).  so by now I am dizzy ;-)


Simply installing mycelium of another device doesn't spend any funds you have in your wallet.  If these coins are on the wallet with the seed you made a backup of, then the new device will have the ability to spend them.  Example... You can installed mycelium on 10 phones all using the same seed.  So, any one of those phones can be used to spend the funds.

You don't need to play with devices that already have wallets.  Don't risk anything.  If you have true backups, then there is no worry.  Playing with different wallet apps, etc is only causing a confusion you don't need.   Quite simply, if you have a mycelium seed for the coins you believe you have, then simply install mycelium on another device and restore the wallet.  Importing/exporting and multiple wallets is creating far more complications that you're adding into the equation that's not needed.

New device, install mycelium, restore seed, done.

Thank you very much!

the app on my phone crashes before I can do anything
I have mycelium installed on my tablet.
Should I uninstall it and then do a recover with the seed I have from last time?

Sorry but I am getting nervous since this is not my btc i am transferring I need some security before moving on

thanks


If you don't have any coins or history on the wallet installed on the tablet, then use.  Recover your wallet on the tablet.

Not sure what you mean by security.  I can't offer you anything, but I also didn't request anything from you which would suggest you need security.

Simply install the wallet on a new device, restore, and there you go.  It's unlikely you 'imported' keys from your other wallet.  This is rarely ever done.

While importing a key to mycelium the app crashed
Now when I open the app it doesnt let me do anything and crashes again while trying to sync

What can I do?

If i reinstall mycelium will my accounts created after the backup be lost?

And if I restore the seed in another wallet what happens?

Been digging into this and it gets very complicated for me, I see people here know what they talk about,

thanks in advance!

If you have the recovery seed, it will come back with all the keys the seed has made.
If you specifically imported  pkeys that you had, then those keys would have to be reimported.
Don't be confused creating an account in mycelium with importing.

Further, you can test with another android/iphone device to test.

Also, if your phone only crashes when it tries to sync, then simply backup and export before you sync just to confirm you have a backup.

Last time I dealt with this by stating that any bid automatically extends the auction to x minutes after the last bid

Not this one.   Snipe on.
665  Economy / Collectibles / Re: [AUCTION] Casascius 25 Original 2011 on: May 04, 2017, 04:22:47 PM
oh! i thought it was too big
MS 65 is good

NOT saying those are mine.
Just pointing out a picture which shows two of them.  So, can be graded.

Major thing to keep in mind is that grading done years ago was WAY more stringent.  Meaning, coins rarely graded for 65/66 back then.  Everything now is graded higher.  So, the dates of grading on all Casascius coins should be considered when you purchase coins.

From the picture I see in this auction, I believe it will grade well.  Currently I am still a contender in a possible bid.  But, I only snipe at the end.  The current problem is that Otoh and LesbianCow know about this auction which means I have little chance of getting it, let alone a great deal.  Sad

that's really the cleanest 25 btc coin i have seen so far...

if i remember right, it's too big to be graded right?

No.  Grading is fine.

Thank you! Well i dont know a lot about these coins, my friend who know about coins told me that it is okay to ask 15btc for 5 nickel. Maybe the information i got is wrong, so im open for deals.

At 15BTC for a 5 nickel (Casas.), I would happily sell you several.  Let me know if you find buyers.  Smiley

Oh my.. old Maxy boy has outdone himself here

Dude this is so much better than initial designs

Agreed. These pics are making me wish I would have picked up one of the suites Tongue

If only I even had the opportunity to have ordered a suite.   Sad.  Sad

Of course, I would have bought > 1. (Or Tried)  Smiley

Is this wallet compromised? Read on another thread about their token sale and worthless now. Any lone recommend the best mobile wallet.

No, the wallet is not compromised.

Mycelium Local Trader is no longer getting the correct BitcoinAverage 0% = $1267.28 USD is clearly way below actual right now.

Appears to be using GBX

@Michail1

You are a mug. It IS the wallet's fault and the original Mycelium devs (not the new owners) will end up in jail before too long. Wise up!

Calling me a mug?  Ha, sounds cute.

I'm still trying to figure out exactly what you're complaint is.  You didn't counter a single thing I said, but simply said someone is going to jail and name calling.  Please provide information as to which statement you disagree with.

For an account that is dormant which makes a couple of posts a year, I thought it funny you mainly play with ALTS and ICO scams.
Good luck with those.

My guess is that you're simply mad because you invested a year ago which hasn't made you a millionaire yet, so you're bitching the devs haven't programmed the ability to specify an exact amount for TX fees.
675  Economy / Collectibles / Re: [WTS] 1BTC Silver Round /w Gold B - Graded MS-69 on: April 26, 2017, 09:11:08 PM
I bid 1.1BTC

676  Bitcoin / Mycelium / Re: Mycelium Bitcoin Wallet on: April 17, 2017, 02:10:35 PM
are there any cell phone wallets where you do have control over the fees? i wonder if fee control is a hard thing to integrate because it doesn't seem very common.

no.. there are not, but anyway impossible use mycelium when sending 7 $ +5$ fee now im never use some phone apps  i use this Coinb.in i will come back when mythelium will update with this option ( custom adding fee in digits sat) and if it willl mycelium will be the best..but for now it same as electrum ad other sucks apps

Sending $7 with a $5 fee?  Well, that's not true unless all your inputs are dust.
No cashier wants to accept $7 if you're paying with pennies. (In this case, micro pennies.)

If you don't like the fees, then bitcoin isn't for you (at this time).  Complaining that it's the wallets fault is funny.

If you don't like mycelium because you can't specify the exact amount you want to pay as a fee, then simply go to another wallet that does.  Also demand your money back that you paid on the free wallet.
677  Bitcoin / Mycelium / Re: Mycelium Bitcoin Wallet on: April 13, 2017, 02:30:36 PM
What are you guys using then?

For mobile, I use Mycelium almost exclusively - android and iOS (although the iOS version needs an overhaul, it still works fine).
I also use breadwallet on iOS.   Never thought to even lookup Electrum on mobile until it was brought up yesterday (Android yes, but not available on iOS).

I've been known to use blockchain.info wallet app as well - until I can finally rid myself of coinbase tracked coins.

For desktop (laptop), I only use Bitcoin CORE wallet (full node).
678  Bitcoin / Mycelium / Re: Mycelium Bitcoin Wallet on: April 13, 2017, 05:32:32 AM
Then we completely agree.

Again, thanks for the Electrum idea.  For some reason, I never bothered to check if there was a mobile app.

Cheers.
679  Bitcoin / Mycelium / Re: Mycelium Bitcoin Wallet on: April 13, 2017, 04:13:32 AM
Using language like "normal", "quick" and "super quick" is a "Bad Idea". As that would be setting user expectations without being able to guarantee you could actually deliver. Even the use of "Low-Prio" and "Priority" is a bit iffy as there are no guarantees with BTC.

If you use the "Super Quick" value... and then 30,000 transactions get dumped onto the network that all have double your fee... how "Super Quick" do you think your transaction is actually going to be? Then you will have all the users who don't understand BTC and the blockchain properly, moaning that your wallet is too slow and X wallet is much faster.

I think you missed the point.   I want exactly what mycelium provides.  4 simple options.   If you let someone pick a specific amount,  it causes WAY more hassle than needed and simply leads to people bitching that their TX doesn't confirm and/or they paid too much.

Mycelium could easily just incorporate a "fifth" option on the fee level button that says "Manual" and enable a textinput box that would let you just enter an amount. Maybe throw up a toast message warning if it is below what it considers to be "normal".


Yes, mycelium 'could' give an 'advanced' option and let the user specifically screw up the fees to the point that a tx doesn't get confirmed. If the option is there, someone will use it and they will screw it up and they will complain about it.

I didn't know Electrum had a mobile app.  Thanks.  Downloading now.
680  Bitcoin / Mycelium / Re: Mycelium Bitcoin Wallet on: April 13, 2017, 12:43:47 AM


Can you now specify the fee numerically as satoshis per byte? I stopped using Mycelium because I wasn't able to choose the fee other than picking between 4 too-high amounts.

i also stopped using Mycelium for this reason

A poor decision if you can then no longer use mobile apps to send/receive bitcoin.  Did you find an alternative that allows you to directly enter how many Sats you wish to pay?

Personally, I would rather have the option normal, quick, super quick confirmations than an app asking me the exact amount of satoshis to use for a transaction.  Far often than not, I have to put up with people picking an amount next to nothing and then bitching for 24 hours that their transaction isn't confirmed.

People complain that bitcoin is too complicated, but when made easier, they complain about not being able to control it to the point where it's not usable.
