Unfortunately you can't. And i  don't think that a change in the algorithm would suddenly make core "changing" your passwords.

The only way you can retrieve your coins is maybe if you've copy pasted any of the private keys somewhere, but i doubt you did.


Unless you maybe had a really easy password ( consisting of 1-5 letters) you might be able to bruteforce it, but i doubt that aswell, and i don't think it is worth it for 0.003..

No copy and paste Not found so far anyway. I have not been into this for years sold all my mining gear sold.

Mined some lame ass coins that i still have Joke is i mined the peanuts of bitcoin off one of those usb ones LOL

Now i returned home ( traveling 3 years ) to find a paper wallet Thats where i believed my coins to be ( empty ) now by anychance if i let the network sync will the transaction out suddenly show up in my paper wallet?

Thanks for your help

Put the address (NOT the private key) for the paper wallet into a block explorer like https://blockchain.info

If the address shows a positive balance, then there are coins there. If it is showing as empty on a blockexplorer, then the address is definitely empty and syncing will not change that.
