Does anyone know if it is possible to connect darkwallet to another server in order to get coins out of the wallet? It would be much appreciated if someone would provide some link or process describing how in order to make that happen.

Thanks,
Chon1

I think this wallet is dead. Do you need help getting your bitcoin out, or are you just hoping you can connect it back up eventually?

I need to get my bitcoin out. Do you know of a way to do so?

Did you put the money in a stealth address or just a normal address?

If it's a normal address I can help you recover your bitcoin keys into Electrum.

If it's stealth, I would need to know the transaction ID of the transaction used to fund your wallet, then I could write an app for you to recover the private key, also allowing recovery in Electrum.

However, if you deposited to stealth address and don't remember which transaction ID......... it will be a lot of work to recover.

Do you know which address your money is on, and can you find it on some block explorer?

I put the money in a normal address, and I believe I know which address the money is on. There is an option in darkwallet to show the transfer in block explorer, is that adequate? But, I also found it on a different block explorer.

@Chon1 If you go to Settings --> Tools --> Export Private Keys, you can get your private keys out and sweep them into a different wallet. If you need help feel free to ping me here or pm me on reddit /u/grnqrtr

U have the same problem. I tried to enter the private keys in another wallet but this doesn't work. Anyone already found a solution? I'm a noob and really need some help here.

@freedom4all Are you sure you exported the right private keys? I just helped ElVrana here a few days ago. If you need more help you can contact me on reddit /u/grnqrtr or for faster messaging on telegram - grnqrtr

Thank you for the fast reply. I just left home to go to a ship for 3 weeks for my work. When I'm back I will contact you. I don't have my laptop here. It's so frustrating. Many thanks!

That would be frustrating! I'll leave my email too, I just realized that you can only add someone on telegram by phone number, but I don't really want to leave that here :) grnqrtr@gmail.com

Thank you all so much for the help. I also don't have access to my computer for the next few days so I will contact you if I have trouble/questions when I get back home.

Thanks again.

To clarify for OP: yes, I do remember running my own server back in the day.

It's possible, but not exactly "point-and-click". There are several components (gateway, txradar, brc) that interconnect to form an interface between WebSocket clients, ZeroMQ libbitcoin-server (or was it still obelisk?..), and the general Bitcoin network (or was that completely handled by routed through libbitcoin-server?..).

My memory is pretty hazy on the details, but there might have also been an "issue" with server certificates: I was using a self-signed one (Let's Encrypt wasn't around back then), so didn't advertise it. I think I stopped hosting one, even for my own private use, once the blockchain data exceeded my VPS's storage capacity.

Anyway, the question's not whether it's possible, it's whether there are any other servers at all. :)

Hey guys,

Same situation here - I some coins sent to my darkwallet but they just didn't shop up (even after 6 confirmations). It seems like dark wallet simply isn't working, what can I do?

Thanks a bunch @grnqrtr for giving me a bunch of information and resources in order to find my missing btc from darkwallet. Even after I couldn't find them, he was nice enough to use my seed then find my BTC for me and send it to my own electrum wallet. Very trustworthy, knowledgable, and a super nice person.

Hi, guys! And another same situation here - I some coins sent to my darkwallet but wallet does not see it on balance. On blockchain i see balance at that address. Also the wallet is connected to the server unsystem. I try to scanning, but found 0. Then i go to Settings --> Tools --> Export Private Keys => notification says that keys are exported but i can't find them on my computer. Where i can find them and what format it have?

Big thanks for help to @grnqrtr . He told me what soft i need use to export the keys and how to find the right wallet. I myself would hardly have mastered it. Best regards, my friend!

@rocketsky and @grnqrtr What software did you need to export the keys?

grnqrtr commented May 10, 2017

@Botts85 I've used older versions of DW to export keys, but found that they don't export all of the change addresses. I use this tool to manually check change addresses: https://github.com/bip32JP/bip32JP.github.io/archive/darkwallet.zip

Feel free to skype/telegram me at "grnqrtr" if you need more help.

The export key tool of Darkwallet is bugged and no Key is showed.
I'v solved using Export Keys and debugging the code.
recovering_wallet

In this way I've recovered the private key and loaded in a Electrum wallet!

P.s. You have to use normal address not the Stealth...

@simonegenovese Your picture shows your password. You should probably remove it.
