    Hi All,

    please help..!

    Have followed the instructions to make DIY deterministic addresses
    as given in the official documentation, however, now that I wish to send some Dash, I've put

    walletpassphrase YOURWALLETPASSPHRASE 60
    importprivkey XHoP-----------------------------------DnwgE2 0p/0/1 true

    into the console and all i get back is

    Error: Error parsing JSON:importprivkey

    Does anyone know what the problem is...?

    Thanks

    I have no problem. If you have any special characters as label, use alpha + digit only.

    use "help importprivkey" to check all command option.

    Code:
    19:27:42
    
    importprivkey XKbp3ni47FEDNsyPY9js8EAbJYRsoZfEusbibvNjg2qWqeKZgZLL test true
    
    
    19:29:42
    
    
    
    
    19:29:50
    
    importprivkey "XKbp3ni47FEDNsyPY9js8EAbJYRsoZfEusbibvNjg2qWqeKZgZLL" "sadasda" true
