Importing Bitcoin PrivatKey form Armory into BTSX Wallet
« on: August 10, 2014, 06:19:46 PM »

at the moment the import of my privat key from Armory don't function. In some other thread it was said, it will be fixed.
so could someone tell more detail when do you expect to fix this bug?

Maybe it would be good to have an official bug thread with known issues and a timeline when it could be expected to get fixed!

There is github issue tracker at https://github.com/BitShares/bitshares_toolkit/issues 

Have you tried importing the wif key ?
I speak for myself and only myself.

In Armory go to 'Backup This Wallet'->See Other Backup Options ->Export Key List

Copy the one(s) that start with 5;
Past in BTSX Wallet. (import private key or whatever)
!!!You might need to remove the spaces!!!



Let me know if this works!

Lack of arbitrage is the problem, isn't it. And this 'should' solves it.

if you export in privbase58 (which is correct) you get a so called json file  .. the privkey is located in the attribute sec="5....."
you need ONLY that string (starting with 5) and need to import it as a private key .. dont try to import that file as a wallet file .. that won't work

import the private keys your extracted from the file (in checkbase58, privbase58 coding)

thanks xerox

it worked, but i had to transfer 100 of privkeys, because for every transaction in armory is one generated. i could not tell wich key was used for AGS donation. i needed ages. Would be good to import more then one key at a time, or maybe there is a way i didn't know? i don't want to do it for p2p and vote again  :-X
