Hi,


Can an expert please brute force my wallet and let me know what your fee is?  You can PM if you want.

I only have like 2 BTC in it.


Thanks,

Unless you have some idea of what the password is, brute forcing the wallet will be near impossible. Your Bitcoin is likely lost.

Besides brute forcing the wallet, have you tried any other way to recover the Bitcoin? Do you have a backup? Do you have your seed words saved somewhere?

take a look at this: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=240779.0 (https://walletrecoveryservices.com/)


read the first page of that link and it gives you pretty good idea if you can or can not recover your wallet based on what you remember of your password.

p.s. use that service at your own risk, i am just introducing, have no personal experience with that service

Unless you have some idea of what the password is, brute forcing the wallet will be near impossible.

That's not entirely true, notably for Electrum (and MultiBit Classic, and maybe one or two others with equally low key stretching).

I ran some quick-and-dirty numbers based on btcrecover's speed (which isn't really a brute-forcer, I'm certain a real brute-forcer would be a few times faster).

Assuming only lowercase letters, passwords of length nine are quite feasible for an individual to brute-force.
Add in digits, and then it drops to about eight characters long.
Add in uppercase letters, then it's seven characters. Still not too bad.

Take a character off, and it goes from feasible to downright cheap ($10 and around 24 hours or less on a single monster AWS EC2 instance).

In short, brute-forcing weaker (yet not trivial) passwords is possible, and none of this takes into account how a real brute-forcer would work, e.g. going off of good dictionaries w/good mutation rules.

Regardless, to OP: unless you're willing to try to find the password yourself (e.g. with btcrecover mentioned above), Dave has a good reputation and may be able to help (for a fee that is).

Hi Ashkaan,

seems this forum blocked PM's from 'newbies' since today so I couldn't answer your PM anymore. You can message me via Telegram, user @peterb88.
