So... I'm one of those people who bought Microsoul coins back in the day.

However, I've never actually redeemed a private key before. How do I go about doing that? ELI5 Smiley

Blockchain.info should allow you to import private keys, however depends on the private key working.

I checked out Blockchain.info, but couldn't find an import option. Seems like it was a feature in the past, but not anymore(?)


It's now located Under "Settings > Addresses > Import Bitcoin Address".   The link is text and it used to be a button from what I remember,   Wink

https://i.imgur.com/tWNw97Kh.jpg

Found it, thanks.

I just get "The value you entered does not appear to be a valid Private Key or bitcoin address".

I get the same message when I use the key that I sweeped in Electrum (previous screenshot) and a new one I opened.

It is very simple if the coin is funded, the private key under the sticker is the correct private key and the code under the sticker is the actual private key and not a private key that has been modified by an obfuscation algorithm (as some of the private keys were).

1. Peel sticker
2. Import or sweep the private key into one of any number of Bitcoin wallets.

Almost all modern Bitcoin wallets have either a private key import function or a private key sweeping function.

blockchain.info firstly to sweep the btc. Then downloaded electroncash to redeem the bitcoin cash.

I really didn't want to peel this coin, it felt wrong. But there is no way I could sell it with this type of controversy surrounding them, it didn't feel right.

So I have been out of the game, but it seems that might be to my detriment.  Some of these coins are NOT funded?  and looks like I missed the cut off if they are not because i wasn't here.  That seems pretty shitty, didn't realize i would have to keep checking the forums after a purchase to ensure that my coin is funded.

Indeed it is, making mistakes can happen.  Giving people on one forum 2 months to ask for a refund of the btc value when people don't always jump on here is indeed shitty.

I certainly make mistakes daily, but a  arbitrary cut off date decided by the person who made the mistake is stupid.   

Since I missed the cut off should I even try peeling the coins?  Seems pointless

There was no real cut off date and no meaningful amount of refunds.  I requested a refund immediately and never saw it.

Some coins do have a valid private key...some not....so it’s worth peeling if you want the btc.  Please just don’t sell the unpeeled as funded and screw the next person...

That is not something I would do.  But Still very concerning.  I guess I'll have to find out when I get home.   Sigh.

Hopefully this attempt to reach you will not be in vain, graviate (I notice you haven't been on in a while). I have a 2014 .01BTC Microsoul that, according to the firstbits, is funded. I would like you to explicitly tell me that you are suggesting removing the holo and redeeming the funds to ensure they are in-fact there, effectively eliminating the [substantial] novelty value these coins have, and that I paid for. Furthermore, I would like to know how (and if) you plan to compensate for this lost novelty value ($200+/coin). Or, can you assure me that since the firstbit lookup says the coin is funded, that it is in-fact funded.

Either way it looks as though you aren't gonna get the answer you want.  Novelty value you won't be refunded.  Can the coin be determined to be loaded without peeling and try to redeem, nope.  You peel and there is funds on there, then the funded coin price goes down because it's peeled....

Agree...I have a loaded Microsoul...Does it say it is loaded..yes...Is it? probably the public and private keys do not match. That is the way I will let it stay as the amount of Btc in it is very small.

It will be a part of our Physical Bitcoin collectors history, and that is the only reason I am keeping and not peeling.

All 3 coins I bought had BTC on them.  Shame I had to peel them.  Never peeled a coin before Sad  My god are private keys much harder to read than I thought.  

Also whats the easiest way to deal with bitcoin gold?  I really haven't done much with it.

Yeah if the private keys are good don't forget about all the sh*tcoins on them like bcash and bgold and whatever air drops since they were loaded.  The whole fork thing is getting tough to buy/sell coins

I used this method   https://99bitcoins.com/how-to-claim-bitcoin-gold-btg-guide/

 Remember remove all your BTC first and once you are done never use that wallet again!
