just a quick question ...

can the latest sia gui wallet import older wallet coins? ...

if so - how? ...

the version gui wallet we have is 1.2.1 that is being used ...

tanx ...

#crysx

Yes, absolutely. Once you download the new v1.2.1 version, if you still have the wallet folder on your computer then the software will load it automatically and ask for your seed. If you upgrade from a version prior to 1.2.0 the first time it will take a long time to unlock the wallet (but just the first time).

If you only conserve the seed, but not the wallet folder, on the UI wallet's tab there is a new button "load wallet" close to the "create a new wallet"

If you have the old seed, but you already created a new wallet with a different seed, to return to the old wallet: First unlock the current wallet with the current wallet seed. Then go to the command terminal and type "siac wallet load" and follow the instructions

the older wallets are all pre-1.2.0 - and the 'new' wallet that has just finished syncing does not have the options / buttons you mentioned ... unless they are in a menu somewhere that i cannot see ...

i only have the seed of ONE of the wallets - thats it ... the rest of the older wallets are sitting in the hard drive waiting to be resurrected Smiley ...

its been along time since i originally mined sia ( i was one of the first ) and since then - the coins have been sitting there in a those wallets ... and the wallets just sitting there in the hdd Smiley ... so id like to resurrect them somehow ...

ill try 'fiddling' with the menu system - but if console is a better way to - i would rather do it that way ... i just need to know the exact commands to do so via console ... this is linux btw - fedora 25 x64 ...

If you don't see any button (create wallet or load wallet) in the wallet menu is because a wallet is already loaded to the UI. If you want to load a different wallet just go to the in-app command line and type "siad wallet load". It will ask you for the seed of the current wallet first and then for the seed of the new wallet you want to load.

However, I am sad to say that if you don't preserve the seeds of those old wallets, by no means you will be able to access those funds. Double-check what you have, because clearly you had to take note of them at some point: every time Sia generates a wallet for you it also generates you the seed and prompts you to save that seed somewhere handy. There is no other way to access a wallet: the wallet files you have on your disks are encrypted, as it is natural.

this seems true now ...

but in the early days - the seeds were not showing upfront - and the seeds were always lost due to them 'flashing' up without any chance of getting them ...

in the early posts of this thread ( way back ) you will see that i 9 and many others ) posted this issue and taek promptly took that on board and released a newer wallet within weeks ... coins were lost - mining continued and the project become more and more efficient and losing coins due to the 'alpha nature of the project - which was fair enough at that time ...

but i do remember a time when taek released a method of importing wallets ( without the seed - though this is off memory only - so i could be completely wrong here ) into the current wallet to retrieve coins ... either way - if the coins are lost - thats all good and well - but the most recent wallet i have is an old one anyway ... i think this one may have all my coins in it ( after continued mining for weeks at that time when mining was easy - and rewards were good ) ...

so i will give all this a go - and cross my fingers ... as there were a LOT of coins in that wallet ...

tanx for you help ...

A lot of Chinese buyers.

Don't forget the cloud is the future. And Sia is just very cheap.

If this is just a pnd I am just fine with it. Because I already sold most of my holdings at 84. This time I will buy more and will try to have higher tp.  Cheesy

Well have you looked around? Everything is going up. Sia is a quality product and their development team is top notch. This is no pnd shitcoin.

Oh, I see, I joined this community some months ago, so I didn't know about this "pre-history" of Sia. I am so sorry for you... I would join the Slack of Sia and ask Taek and the rest of the developers about this. They don't check Bitcointalk but they are very active in Slack, maybe he will have some tool or solution for your old wallets

Hey Crysx. I asked Taek about this in Slack and he says there was some problems this week in Slack, so you should be able to make your way in if you keep trying. I guess he prefers to work with the problem directly with you instead of answering in slack and me as a man-in-the-middle :-P

Hi

I have a problem to recover my sia coins with my seed.
I have a backup of my seed, I have installed Sia UI v1.2.1 on my new PC, its 100% synchronized, I use the recover seed button but my wallet now shows 0 SIA :S

I had a very big amount of SIA on my wallet

how to be sure the seed is recovering correctly?

how to be sure the seed is recovering correctly?

First, check that you are copy/pasting the seed precisely: no extra spaces and no missing characters

Second, just in case I would try to check the balance on a command line instead of the UI, just in case. If you are in Windows:
- Close SiaUI completely (in Windows: Close in the system tray)
- Go to the folder where said.exe is locate. It is going to be in a subfolder of Users/your_name/Appdata/Roaming/Sia/resources
- Open 2 command line terminals
- In the first one type "siad", and wait until the step 6/6 is done
- In the second one, type "siac wallet unlock". It will ask you for your seed. Wait until the fist command line terminal says "Done!"
- Next, in the second terminal type "siac consensus" and check that your blockchain database is fully synchronized
- Finally, in the second terminal type "siac wallet" to check your balance

If both things fail, I would suggest you to go to Slack (siatalk.slack.com/) and ask in the #help channel. Taek and the other devs are very active and I remember one or two people had a similar problem when upgraded to 1.2.0

hi all ...

i found an earlier wallet ( 0.4.x ) - and want to import the wallet into the latest one ( 1.2.1 ) ...

now the previous console command worked for an early wallet using siac wallet load - and it had only a few coins in it unfortunately - but it seems that this 0.4x wallet ( and im only going from memory here ) was the one i was using for the mining ...

the issue here is that the wallet.dat is no where to be found for the import ... all there is in this wallet is the wallet.json file ...

is there a way of importing this wallet.json file into this new 1.2.1 wallet? ...

if so - how? ...

tanx again ...
