dear community,

I have imported a private key (of my paper wallet) to my QT wallet and whenever i go to my receive addressess i see it is available. However i do not see my balance has been updated. So i tried to send almost al the amount (taking transaction fees into account) to one of my other receive addresses, but it says i do not have enough amount.

Anybody has any idea what i am doubg wrong?

In addition i did rescan on false since if that would make a difference

rescan true should.


do rescan using QT : Tools --> Wallet repair --> Rescan blockchain files.

importprivkey "dashprivkey" ( "label" rescan )



Adds a private key (as returned by dumpprivkey) to your wallet.



Arguments:

1. "dashprivkey" (string, required) The private key (see dumpprivkey)

2. "label" (string, optional, default="") An optional label

3. rescan (boolean, optional, default=true) Rescan the wallet for transactions



Note: This call can take minutes to complete if rescan is true.



Examples:



Dump a private key

> dash-cli dumpprivkey "myaddress"



Import the private key with rescan

> dash-cli importprivkey "mykey"



Import using a label and without rescan

> dash-cli importprivkey "mykey" "testing" false



As a JSON-RPC call

> curl --user myusername --data-binary '{"jsonrpc": "1.0", "id":"curltest", "method": "importprivkey", "params": ["mykey", "testing", false] }' -H 'content-type: text/plain;' http://127.0.0.1:9998/

to Balych I'd tried that and I see my Dash located on that address so that is all good, thanks for the suggestion though!
to chaeplin, tried the first option you suggested (Tools --> Wallet repar) and it did the trick! Thank you very much. I thought I lost 5K here :). Thank God.

Please do a backup of the wallet.dat file multiple times and store it in different places !!
