Hi,

I'm looking to sweep my private keys to get my Bitcoin Gold in the coinomi wallet but it's coming up with tens of thousands of private keys. Is there a way to find which key i need to scan?

I tried the first hundred thinking there weren't that many and got about 25% of what I should have.

Thanks
Michael

Ah sorry I used the Bip39 mnemonic program recommended by coinomi. I used it for bitcoin cash and there were about 20 keys so I scanned them all, lots had nothing in, a couple had a small amount and one had the majority. Nothing like this though.

I've looked through the guide and there was nothing there that flagged up a reason for this. As I say I followed the guide for when the Bitcoin Cash fork happened and it worked perfectly fine, so its something that has happened since then. Bearing in mind I have made about 5 transactions to/from that wallet since then I really can't think why.

Hm, that's strange. The best bet would be to write (or have someone do it for you ) a script which will go trough the addresses so you could separate the empty ones from the ones which actually have something on them. Check the following thread with discussion about this: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=736607.0 Also check: https://digitalronin.github.io/2017/06/22/bitcoin-balances.html

Did you try changing the "external/internal" value from 0 to 1 to generate your change addresses as well? Try that and scan through a few of those addresses...

ps. the BIP39 mnemonic tool will generate an infinite number of addresses (at least, until your PC runs out of memory) Tongue Unless you have made thousands of transactions, I doubt your coins in receive or "change" addresses are likely to be further down the list than 100 or so Wink
