Hi,

I want to know how can I find out the wallet ID of a private key without importing the priv key into my wallet?

You can't as far as i know. There is no ""Direct"" correlation between the wallet identifier and the private key, at least not in the way that it is reversible.

Adresses are derived from the public key, and the public key is derived from the private key.

You can go from Private Key  -> Wallet adress, but not the other way around. >1 in adress is from 1= private key


Also a wallet adress is something different then a wallet identifier, so i'm not sure if you meant to refer to wallet ID instead of adress ID.

A wallet ID is something like this, https://www.walletexplorer.com/wallet/0004e0d47a2c36bd

So, correct me if i'm wrong, if you'd want to know the wallet ID(s) of a certain set of adresses, without importing the private key, ( essentially loading / scanning the private key), shouldn't be possible. ( as the process would / should be able to be done reversed aswell ).

Without importing to a wallet, you could use something like http://www.bitaddress.org
<insert standard warnings about using "offline copy of bitaddress.org on an offline computer" here>

Goto the "wallet details" tab and put in your private key... it will give you the matching public addresses (NOTE: it gives compressed and uncompressed, make sure you use the correct address!)


Or if you want to do it manually: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Technical_background_of_version_1_Bitcoin_addresses
You can convert the WIF to the hex private key following this: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Wallet_import_format

Website that does these step by step conversions: http://gobittest.appspot.com/
<insert scary warning that this website has NO offline mode and uses POST to submit entered keys etc, use at your own risk with "live" private keys!! here>

If you want to fetch the bitcoin address from the private key without the use of the wallet, you can use coinb.in. Enter your private key in the text box and click on Submit, then you see all other details' about the private key.
