Recover Bitshares using PTS private keys
« on: April 13, 2017, 04:45:14 am »
Hi,

So it seems like I forgot my password to my BitShares wallet. Is it possible to recover funds if I have my original BTS-originating PTS wallet?

What's odd is that I'm pretty sure my password is correct. I'm trying to import a backup .json file that was created in v0.5.3 into the v0.9.3c wallet (which I loaded with the blockchain I downloaded from the torrent file). Is there a possibility there's some kind of compatibility issue?

Finally, is there some kind of way I can access BTS v0.9.3c through the command line, so I can use it along with something like Python to try and brute force the password? It's possible that the password I'm thinking of is very close to the real password, and I just need to permute through incrementally distant mutations until I find what it really is.
