Hello -

So I've gone and done the unthinkable: I made a new Electrum wallet, and not only have I lost the seed, but I forgot the password as well. I've still got the Master pub. seed and the .dat file, so while it's been nice to have a watch-only wallet on my desktop and watch my BTC increase in value for the past week, it'd really be nice to have access to the money since I've recently become unemployed as well.

I've read this thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=85495.msg941818#msg941818

I do have information about what my password probably is, so I know this is not impossible. In fact I'm pretty sure someone with the necessary skillz could get it fairly quickly.

I would have liked to posted there but apparently newbies are stuck in noobland for a while (I have been a lurker on this forum for a while however). I also would have liked to message that cat Revalin because he seems to be the man to talk to, but I guess I have to wait a bit to get PM rights.

Also, this service seems like an option: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=240779.60#msg3041669

With Electrum being a deterministic wallet, would I be able to create the wallet dump necessary for them to crack my password but not have access to all my coins?


Thanks [Suspicious link removed]orry that we had to meet under these circumstances, but I could really use some help.
