He resent me his address in the form of a Print screen and it shows his wallet in Multibit which apparently can't import watch only addresses.
Print screens can be faked. There is no guarantee that the OP does actually have the PW to the wallet and that he will spend the BTC once he receives payment for the wallet.

IMO the OP's best bet would be to give the wallet to someone he can trust and that has the resources to crack the PW and then have that person agree to send the OP a certain percentage of any BTC that can be recovered.

You mean like i did about 3 times now? Read the topic before posting please, it has been stated what efforts i've done so far.


I read the topic. I am saying there is no guarantee that what is written in the topic is the truth. I am merely telling you what is most likely going to result in the best outcome for you if you are acting honestly.

Current bid via PM is 0.7BTC FYI. I'll see a day or two if anyone goes higher, else i'll sell it to that person.

the password is under 50 bits of entropy .. i could crack this in 2-4 weeks and will split 50/50 with the OP. I will not pay for the privelege to do so however :-)

If this is a real offer, and you are successful, please post here and let us know. This would be a shimmer of light onto the cryptocurrency community.

Agreed. Like stated before, several users doing nothing but recovering passphrased went trough the trouble for several weeks/months without any result.

I will not share the wallet with anyone, because that means, if they manage to crack my passphrase, they can simply empty my wallet and vanish.

This post is an auction. Place a bid if you are so confident you'll crack it, simple as that. It will gain you more than 44% if you manage.

-snip-
btcrecover script (https://github.com/gurnec/btcrecover) is trying to crack it up to date using 4 GPU's.

The passphrase is 9 characters long. I know i've set the generator at +1, and default length is 8.

Didnt you say its a multibit wallet? Btcrecover does not support GPU accelaration for multibit. 4 CPU cores do ~360kP/s though with 290 combinations we are talking ~ 1014 years. Even if you split the work among a million machines chances of finding the password are very low.

I dont think anyone will buy this.

Exactly my point. That's why i auction it. Read OP.

Best offer is accepted, since they are lost to me anyway. Do you feel like you can crack this unknown password? Hoping for some quantum computers soon? This is your shot!

interesting Smiley as there is no guaranty that you will not keep the wallet and try to recover the password on your own you should consider turning this auction into contest with bounty

Anyone could try to crack the password with this tool: https://github.com/gurnec/btcrecover

Quote
“Offline” mode for nearly all supported wallets - use one of the extract scripts (click for more information) to extract just enough information to attempt password recovery, without giving btcrecover or whoever runs it access to any of the addresses or private keys in your Bitcoin wallet.

I think contest with bounty isn't a bad idea. Escrow a bounty, publish the partial wallet information (extracted with btcrecover extract scripts), and let people try to crack the password with btcrecover. Set a deadline (eg one month). If nobody cracks the password, sell your wallet. Since you consider these bitcoins are lost, you have nothing to lose.

Sorry, I don't have 0.5+BTC to buy a pig in a poke.
Still, I wish you good luck.

You can always rent a 30,472 core super computer for $1279/hr.

If BTC goes up to $500+ I may be interested in this auction.
