How can I sign a message in the new blockchain?It seems I can't find a sign button there,I've only seen the verify one.It's not in the manage options.
By blockchain I assume you are referring to blockchain.info

To sign a message, go to the "Settings" tab on left, Click on "Addresses", Click on "More Options" in front of your required address, Choose "Sign Message" .

Does the new version allow signing messages? My last info is only the old wallet version does.
Yes it does allow signing.
I don't use blockchain.info much, but the steps above do work for latest version too ! I checked yesterday only.
It's here :
You may update the OP  Smiley


I believe it will only work for the imported addresses, try to make new address and sign a message with it!
If you make a new address in the new blockchain also do not work for sign message. It actually work for imported address. I do not know why the blockchain make this not available to sign message there with new address.

No, Bitcoin Addresses (256 Bit) and PGP-Keys (usually 2048+ bit now) have different key-lengths.

How can you sign a message if you have the BTC address (uncompressed public) and the private key (starting with '5') without importing the private key in a wallet (is software available)?

Does anybody know how to sign a message from an old wallet.Because apparently I can't do it on blockchain.info as I have to import an address and this is taking too long for now.The other wallets I can sign from a new wallet but how I do it from an old one-for example the one in my blockhain.info account

First of all, thank for the post, I really had no idea on how to go about this. Especially as the interface on blockchain.info changed into the new one.
Found it much easier to do after reading this thread.
Thanks!

IIRC there are webpages that allow this, but I didnt like them because they could easily steal your private key. Other than that, electrum is software that can help you here, you just have to create a wallet with that specific private key. If thats to close to 'importing' for you, I dont know anything else.

Im not really here, its just your imagination.

As a follow up: Electrum does not support private keys starting with '5' (the 'L' variant is still supported). In the end, I indeed did this via a webpage, but running locally in a Virtual Machine without networking and deleting everything afterwards

Cant confirm.

Code:

I cant confirm that electrum no longer allows importing uncompressed keys. This message was signed using electrum 2.8.3 and the private key: 5JD1YosAJVHEtiks6x7xq8rhjHaBPMrxr3xYUVpj2uQF7mbb4RQ

I cannot import a wallet address in the latest Electrum with a '5' private key. Importing an 'L' private key does work.

[edit]
Strangely, I am able to import the '5' key you used as an example. I need to check this further.

I understand that, but I just did it so it might be something on your end not with the wallet. Maybe ask in the electrum section about the specifics.

Thank you this is very informative!

It is unfortunate that blockchain.info does not offer signing messages from new address created in the wallet (only for imported addresses).. which does seem kinda strange..
