A 6 character password should be fairly easy to brute force.  Be cautious who you trust to do it for you.

Hi!

This guy has really good reviews and has cracked far longer passwords in the past: https://walletrecoveryservices.com/

Don't send any people who are contacting you via PM any information or your wallet.dat file!!

Good luck and let us know of it worked or if you need any additional help!

Well the good news for you is that 6 character passwords can be brute-forced with a good success rate, but as the other members have indicated - be very particular and careful about who you trust with your wallet.
Good luck to you and let us know how it turns out.

I have sent you an email according your problem. This should be fairly easy, as i have cracked passwords before and i know the exact length of the password.

This guy has really good reviews and has cracked far longer passwords in the past: https://walletrecoveryservices.com/

This guy asks for 20% of the wallet value, which is utterly ridicolous as his reward would be around 40k USD with the current rates alone.

It's pretty simple to do yourself if it only has a 6 char password... simply install btcrecover (https://github.com/gurnec/btcrecover)

It should be able to crack a 6 char password on "average" hardware relatively quickly (hours if not minutes).

You just need to follow the installation instructions (https://github.com/gurnec/btcrecover/blob/master/docs/INSTALL.md) and have Python 2.7 installed (and the optional but recommended PyCrypto library)... and then follow the tutorial (https://github.com/gurnec/btcrecover/blob/master/TUTORIAL.md#btcrecover-tutorial)...

You could use a really simple tokens.txt file like this:
Code:
%6P
That will basically just bruteforce by checking ALL 6 char passwords.


Using btcrecover really itsn't that difficult to do and well worth the effort to rescue 13.8 BTC! Wink

If you can remember any of the password at all, or any patterns that you've used in the past this could be cracked within minutes by yourself using btcrecover. As the above mentioned you could just brute force it, but if you remember something about it you can use the tokens.txt and list what you think was in it.

If you know you used a certain number then you could include that, if you know you used a number at the end you could state that in the tokens.txt. Follow the tutorial at: https://github.com/gurnec/btcrecover/blob/master/TUTORIAL.md

It's well worth the read for 13.8 Bitcoin. If you can't figure it out yourself, and you want someone else to do it for you, don't send them the wallet.dat, extract the mkey from it and send them that. When they find the password they will not be able to access the wallet because you have the wallet.dat, but they will know the password.

Otherwise, if you still fail to recover your funds as you forgot your password, then you can defer to a wallet recovery service, such as walletrecoveryservices.com, they will use a supercomputer to crack your password in exchange for a small portion of the balance (around 10% I believe).

I recommend you use this before considering an outside service. It is pretty easy to install and run.

I'm sure you know this, but absolutely do NOT give anyone your WALLET.DAT file for any reason.

Good luck with your wallet cracking!

Ben

You better remove your Email-Adresse - I do not want to know how many people have already written to you  Grin

But what exactly do you need? Someone cracking the password? A tutorial to do it yourself?

anything you do. do it on a completely offline PC.
transfer anything you download from internet to a offline pc and then do it. keep backup copies of wallet file on USBs.
Don't use the wallet usb on online computer.

I have sent you an email according your problem. This should be fairly easy, as i have cracked passwords before and i know the exact length of the password.

Let me guess... you want that wallet.dat file sent to you? What guarantee or assurance can you give to the OP that you will send him the coins, less your fees, after you successfully recover the password?

I suggest you escrow 13.8 BTC which will be refunded to you less the agreed fee if you successfully access the wallet. Obviously the dilemma here is what would happen if you claim you failed to crack the password (when in fact you did) and ask for a refund of the escrowed coins. So escrowing these coins might not be a safe solution after all.

OP should carefully seek advise from seasoned members here and use a vetted method without sharing the actual wallet.dat file with anyone here.

Wait for that flood of PMs. Be on your guard when responding. Do not send the wallet.dat file.

To protect you from a big mistake i wrote you a Tutorial for BTCRecover (even if I'm a fan of hashcat  Grin)

I make this Step-by-Step because I think that you do not really know about such things - sorry if i am wrong.

Step 1.) Download BTCRecover from Github: (https://github.com/gurnec/btcrecover
Step 2.) Extract the files to your Desktop, now you should have a folder named "btcrecover-master" on your Desktop
Step 3.) Create a new .txt-file on your Desktop and name it tokens.txt - Open the tokens.txt and write this in it: %6P then put the tokens.txt into the "btcrecover-master" folder
Step 4.) Make a Copy of your Wallet.dat and copy it in the btcrecover-master folder - Now you have your tokens.txt and your Wallet.dat in the btcrecover-master folder.
Step 5.) Open the command prompt, now you should see this: "C:\Users\XYZ" type here now: "cd desktop" than "cd btcrecover-master" now it should look like this: "C:\Users\XYZ\Desktop\btcrecover-master>"
Step 6.) Ok, last Step, type this into the commend prompt: "C:\python27\python btcrecover.py --wallet wallet.dat --no-dupchecks --tokenlist tokens.txt"
Step 7.) Wait for btcrecover to crack your password

I tried to make it as easy as possible - hope you can handle it

If you have not installed Python you have to do it first otherwise btcrecover will not work

If that's too complicated for you, I strongly advise you only to work with Dave from https://walletrecoveryservices.com/ - He is definitely trustworthy.


If you wait for a magic button that unlocks your wallet - good luck with it!

that is the Generally-fee, in this case, he will certainly take less, the wallet has 13 BTC and the password is cracked in 1min (if it really only has 6 characters)

You say "small portion of the balance". 20% (flat rate of the service) of 13 BTC = 2.6 BTC,
2.6 BTC x 11,500 UD = almost 30k

Sorry but 30k for cracking a 6 char password is akin to daylight robbery. Besides you don't need need a "supercomputer" for 6 chars...heck you probably don't even need a GPU !!!

@OP: I would strongly suggest that you use btcrecover. Other members have meticulously created how-to's /tutorials so I think you ought to fare well by DIY. Save your 30k its a shit load of money to be wasting for an hour or so of brute-forcing.

Only take HCP's advice on this one. Risking so much money with random wallet recovery services is just stupid. Especially considering that it is only a 6-char password.

Everyone can create a "Satoshibox" - It does not have to be the TS.

But it is suspicious, he post an email and never reply in this thread.

Hi Near28,

Quick question, is this tutorial published anywhere else?  It'd be good to have on a Wiki or somewhere.
