I want to export my key because the wallet's terrible!

Where do I find the option? I tried to export a keychain but that gives me some BIP32 extended key (what does that mean?)

When I try and use my seed to restore using Multibit it just gets stuck at the wallet creating and synchronisation menu with crosses and ticks.

I think you might find that you can't just export the priv key from mSigna and move to another wallet...

From a (very) quick look at it, it seems like it is designed to generate n-of-m MultiSig addresses... so it starts generating "Pay to Script Hash" aka P2SH addresses starting with a 3... as opposed to the more common "Pay to PubKey Hash" aka P2PKH addresses that start with a 1...

The upshot of all this, is that you can't just import the wallet words or Bip32 Master privkey from mSigna to another wallet... or at least, I don't think you can... as the requirements for spending from a ScriptHash address are that "the recipient must provide a script matching the script hash and data which makes the script evaluate to true." Undecided

I think your best bet is to just create a new wallet using a more "user-friendly" wallet like Electrum... and then just send all your coins from mSIGNA to an address in your new wallet.

This sounds right....

Unfortunately I have an unconfirmed transaction so I'm gonna have to wait a week to be able to send bitcoin again!
