  • GitHub repo btcrecover

    BTCRecover is an open source wallet password and seed recovery tool. For seed based recovery, this is primarily useful in situations where you have lost/forgotten parts of your mnemonic, or have made an error transcribing it. (So you are either seeing an empty wallet or gettign an error that your seed is invalid) For wallet password or passphrase recovery, it is primarily useful if you have a reasonable idea about what your password might be.

  • Ledger or Air-Gapped PC? | 2021-06-23
    If you know how to code, know your way around Linux, and can understand the implementation details listed here: (bip32 is the most important for your needs), then an airgapped PC will be far more secure that any hardware wallet could ever be, simply for the fact that there's no way to know what's truly running on a hardware wallet, whereas using an airgapped PC, you can validate all the code and make sure it does exactly what you want it to without leaking any info to the outside world.
  • Bitcoin succeeds because it proves its inability to change. It just exists whether you like it or not and you can't control it or change the rules to your liking. This is how Bitcoin won the blocksize war from 2015 - 2017. | 2021-06-23
    BIP 100 by Jeff Garzik, Tom Harding & Dagur Valberg Johannsson
  • ADA Rush Update: We're now 4 days in, 4 pools have released their clues, and 9 more days remain until the last clue is revealed. There's currently over 220 ADA ready to be won! Why not join in the fun? It's free and no registration is required. Details inside!
    We'd also like to point out that hints and such will not be available to those who ask (yes, we've been asked!). We want to keep the game as fair as possible so will not allow people any advantage over others. That said, we can say that all clues lead to words on the BIP39 list which can be found HERE! If you think you know what the answer is and it's not on that list, guess again!
  • Coinomi wallet passphrase seed not working | 2021-06-21
    You can check your words against this list here to ensure they are spelled correctly: Use your browsers search on page function to locate each word and ensure they are right.
  • Hello Ottawa, can you please help me with this. | 2021-06-19
    The list is here
  • Fishing for wallets
    We have an article here that goes more in-depth with how the 12-word recovery phrase works. If you want to take a look at it, all 2048 words used in BIP39 phrases can be found here.
  • Question: Regarding Update
    Each word is in a 2048-word list:
  • Can 12 word phrase be brute forced?
    Let's do some math. The words in your word list come from the BIP39 standard word list. There are 2048 words in the list. Therefore, there are the following number of combinations of twelve word phrases (without duplicate words):
  • Less than 25% of nodes enforce Taproot, UPDATE your nodes !! | 2021-06-15
    From the BIP:
  • When is the right time to get a cold wallet (ie Ledger, Trezor) | 2021-06-15
  • Why are there gaps in the bips found on github?
  • Why can I see taproot details for a block?
    The version field is used for indicating support for proposed changes. See BIP 9
  • Memorizing your seed as a mental backup to your physical backup
    When creating your story, ensure NO other words from the BIP39 wordlist are in your story other than the four designated words. The BIP39 wordlist is a mix of commonly used nouns, verbs, and adjectives. This fact alone makes it the most difficult part. This prevents confusion in the future if you can't remember which part of the story is your recovery seed phrase.
  • Best cold storage
    The official words for bip39 are these:
  • Guessing a Seed Phrase
    Your seed phrase comes from a specific list of 2048 words. In order to access your wallet, someone would not only have to guess all the words, but also put them in the the correct order.
