That wont work. I dont know of any case where mining/bruteforcing/rainbowing the wallet succeeded.I might be crazy, but perhaps you could look in the source code to find where it stores the password hash, find it on your system, then hash for it with a miner/rainbow tables? That is, if it stores the hash at all. This information is likely to be in wallet.dat, if loading your wallet file in another wallet doesn't resolve the issue. Do you have a lot of money at stake?
It asks you to introduce a passphrase twice when you click in 'Encrypt wallet'. It even tells you that if you lose the passphrase you'll lose your coins. I don't see how you could have encrypted your wallet without knowing. Does someone else have access to your computer?Yes this was a fresh wallet,
I don't recall being prompted to create one, at what point would this have been requested?
I've tried a load of known passwords but to no avail.
I have the same problem. Never was asked to create a pass phrase, and did NOT encrypt, yet it is asking for passphrase and it is encrypted. How is this possible.And you cant even imagine that you ever created a passphrase?
is the little symbol in bottom right corner showing you locked or not ?I have the same problem. I installed on MAC. Never was asked to crete a passphrase. Nor did I choose to encrypt, but it is locked and I have no pass phrase.
What the heck???
Thanks, I figured it out. When I installed the Dash wallet, it did NOT give me the opportunity to create a pass phrase, nor did it ask if I wanted it to be encrypted.is the little symbol in bottom right corner showing you locked or not ?
if yes - it is encrypted and ONLY u could have done it !
happy to hear u are sortedThanks, I figured it out. When I installed the Dash wallet, it did NOT give me the opportunity to create a pass phrase, nor did it ask if I wanted it to be encrypted.
Nevertheless it was locked. What I didn't realize is that the DASH wallet is basically just an upgraded version of the dark coin wallet, and it moved my pass phrase and encryption choice to the new DASH waltet automatically. So I used my darkcoin wallet pass phrase and was able to unlock it. I immediately relocked it and all is well.
I'm a teacher and I am surprised that DASH would not have basic written instructions on it's site explaining how simple it is to move a .dat file,
and how to make your library visible on a MAC and how to save the file to another location as backup, and how to copy and paste it into the new DASH folder.
Would have saved me about three houses of reading through complicated wrong answers to find the one simple one that worked.
happy to hear u are sorted
yes the password : encryption stays with the wallet.dat - it does not matter where u put it !
as to complicated guides and wrong answers ... well at least people try to help - remember there is always an easy and a hard way to do it
i believe we are we covered reg guides and videos - finding them might be the challenge
