Hi all,

I need to convert a 44 byte long private key from a blockchain.info backup.  Both the bitcoin reference client and bitaddress.org flag the address as invalid.

Anyone know what the format is? or explain how I can convert it to a more usable format?

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin Core and some of its derivatives are the only known safe implementations of full nodes. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)

Never mind.. I imported the file into multibit and then exported it via multibit into a compatible format.
