Hello guys,

i have 37,3 BTC in my bitcoin-core wallet but i forgot my password which i set about 3+ years ago.

I already tried dave's service but no luck. I know some patterns of the password but nothing worked so far.

If anyone of you think that he will be able to help me please contact me through personal message.

The reward for finding my password are 3 BTC.

I will only accept help from trusted users or we have to find another way so that both sides are safe.

Cheers,
l0st

If you're at all familiar with running python scripts then btcrecover (https://github.com/gurnec/btcrecover) might help...

It also supports extracting a "fragment"of the wallet file that enables a third party to be able to test passwords without full access to the wallet file (ie. They can't steal your coins)... Refer: https://github.com/gurnec/btcrecover/blob/master/docs/Extract_Scripts.md

This functionality protects all parties involved Wink

I can also try to help you. As mentioned let me know all available clues I.e. patterns, number of characters, had you used upper case or lower case letters etc

Thanks

Also in addition to above, let me know if you are able to remember anything about the password with certainty?

For example:
Approximate password length?
Lowercase letters?
Uppercase letters?
Numbers?
Punctuation or other "special characters"?
Do you know the positions of any of the above? (Such as "It started with a capital letter", "It ended with a number", "it definitely didn't start with punctuation", etc)
Did you generate it with a software password generator, or did you choose it on your own?
If you chose it on your own, how did you choose it?
Any actual words in it?
Did any of the password have any meaning to you?

Thanks

LOL.  Those questions look VERY familliar.  Almost like you cut and paste them from someone else's post in another thread.

That's fucked up and hope you can recover it. I had the same a while ago with an old wallet but luckily was only 200$ in it

Best thing try to relax a bit and think good. get a coffee  Grin

For me it worked. just remembered it after few days.

Do you remember any passwords you used few years ago for other things? it could be the same.

Anyway good luck and really hope you can fix it

Is it just the wallet.dat file you have?

You need that passphrase. If you can't find the text file, the most economical way of recovering your coins is to create a new wallet using a software that uses hierarchical deterministic wallets, back it up properly (write down the seed), send $25 to an exchange and buy some new coins.
If this was a large amount, attempting to recover the text file or to brute-force the passphrase (only feasible if you remember parts of it or it was chosen weakly) might make sense, but for $25, it's probably not worth your time.
Assuming you were on windows, a small text file was probably stored in the MFT, which means it's probably completely gone by now if you indeed deleted it instead of just misplacing it.
You could also try to check for system recovery checkpoints containing the file. You say the file is "gone" but you didn't mention how - did you forget where you put it, accidentally delete it, ...?

@hazukison: I formatted my system (C:\) some years ago but i still have one folder where i installed (I:\) bitcore.

@bagiacom: Regarding the brute-force option of the passphrase - as i mentioned before i know most of the parts from the password. Its about 37,3 bitcoins, not 25$.

About the MFT file, which tool should i use to read the file?

Well, you could hire a professional hypnotist, have him put you under and see if you can go back to that day and moment when you were typing the password in.

Might work.

Otherwise, how long is that password?
