Hey all,

I was wondering what is the process to import an Armory wallet to blockchain. I know armory does not have .dat files for a wallet... they use .wallet. I know I can import private keys from armory to blockchain successfully but how about if one had multiple private keys and just wanted to upload the whole wallet. Is there somewhere I can input the root and chain code? How would I recover my wallet other than using the armory client?

1. Double click the wallet:-


2. Hit backup this wallet & select 'export key list':-


3. Set it up something like this:-


4. Copy the private key:-


Code:
5JHB8C 9zkrKU CFg4Mg dHHg8x N9fzrn DFmka4 RhhK9a 3Zzu4j 7pu

5. Remove all spaces:-
Code:
5JHB8C9zkrKUCFg4MgdHHg8xN9fzrnDFmka4RhhK9a3Zzu4j7pu

6. Head over to blockchain, go to the 'import/export' tab, then paste the private key into the 'add private key':-


Hey-look, it matches!

Thanks for the quick response. Yes I know how to import the private key using the that option. But how would I import the entire wallet? Lets say someone had a wallet with different private keys in them and there btc split within those private keys. Instead of manually importing each private key (may take a while), how would one import them all by importing the wallet, on say blockchain? I know if one had a bitcoin-qt wallet, they drag the .dat file to where it says "drag" on blockchain. I am trying to find out how to import the entire armory wallet on blockchain?

All honesty? Not a clue. My best suggestion would be to either wait for someone who understands how Armory writes the wallet files and how Blockchain expects the wallet files, or, just send the money to blockchain using a normal BTC transaction, assuming you don't need to keep the addresses the same.

I tried searching for the answers but I couldn't find any. Just in case in the future if for any reason Armory is not working, I wanted to see the alternatives of importing a wallet. The only reason I find interest in importing the wallet is just for convenience. By importing every private key separate, it would take a while if one had small amounts of btc in each.

You can't do this, because right now Armory uses a deterministic wallet that no one else uses.  When Armory started, there werent' any other apps that had deterministic wallet, so there was no one to be compatible with.  We'll all upgrade to BIP 32 eventually, but until then the only way to do it is to export the first X keys and import them into the target application/service.  Or mod one of the other wallets to do the same deterministic algorithm Smiley
