I have a wallet file from 2011 back when I used to play around with Bitcoin.
I used an old version of Multibit which has since long been unavailable.
My wallet looks like this:
# KEEP YOUR PRIVATE KEYS SAFE ! # Anyone who can read this file can spend your bitcoin. # # Format: # <Base58 encoded private key>[<whitespace>[<key createdAt>]] # # The Base58 encoded private keys are the same format as # produced by the Satoshi client/ sipa dumpprivkey utility. # # Key createdAt is in UTC format as specified by ISO 8601 # e.g: 2011-12-31T16:42:00Z . The century, 'T' and 'Z' are mandatory # U2FsdGVXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXsnQhpZ6 2013-10-30T20:52:01Z # End of private keys
I managed to get a version of Multibit HD from the web archive but this doesn’t support this wallet.
I also tried using OpenSSL with the following command:
openssl enc -d -p -aes-256-cbc -md md5 -a -in C:keywallet.key.txt -out c:keywallet-decrypted.key.txt
This output a file which wasn’t correct and gave a
bad decrypt error. I know the password for this file.
Does anyone know the correct method of decrypting this?
UPDATE: While I’m at it, I found a whole bunch more .key files. This one has a different format:
org.bitcoin.productionm!œ;€ò=°´zXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXÌñ9,o( 2D ä¢¦]5+¡XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXE}Û@nŸé(2 ÐáXXXXR# org.multibit.walletProtect.2 ZYour wallet description`
