How to import electrum wallet
« on: September 08, 2014, 10:20:44 PM »

Hey everyone. I was wondering how to import my electrum wallet into the btsx client. I exported my priv keys and pointed the client at that but it didn't work. Not sure exactly where my wallet.dat is for electrum.

not sure how to do it with the GUI .. but in console there is a command 'wallet_import_electrum' AFAIR
check it out with

help wallet_import_electrum

I pointed the BTSX Client to the default .dat file in the electrum folder under the windows roaming profile.

This worked fine, but took a few minutes to recognise in my balance.

As long as you are using windows :)

I had some difficulties importing MultiBit too.  I simply imported the individual private keys and it was good-to-go but I understand that others may feel uncomfortable doing this so you may want to use the console.
