How do I find my Private keys?


#1

Under tools go to Debug console

The console window will appear

Type into the command line…

dumpprivkey (paste your wallet address here leaving a space between the command and the address)

The wallet address looks similar to this “D5s2VyEFv5UZubxkb2ovac42Voy95f1ksQ
Wallet addresses start with D

Press “Enter” and then the wallet address and private key will appear in the console window

(this addresses and privkey are cropped in this example)
The privkey will start with Y

Remember to leave a space between the dumpprivkey command and the address

Write down, print and/or save the private key and you will be able to recover your funds from that address anywhere regardless whether you have lost your computer or password.

Each wallet address had a different private key so you must repeat this for each one.

NEVER GIVE ANYONE YOUR PRIVATE KEYS

Keep your funds safe…save your private keys

If i just have the private key only, how do I add that to a new pivx app in case I lose my whole computer, wallet.dat, backups etc…?? thanks.


#3

it doesn’t work man, it says

Method not found (code -32601)


#4

The wallet public address can be derived from the private key


#5

dumpprivkey doesn’t work in console. it says “Method not found (code -32601)” any help? I’m on a mac.


#6

is there a space between dumpprivkey and the first " ??


#7

yes dumpprivkey “D5qcPP36L2HDW8gnsPLKqw4szkrwmNn81s” I keep getting a message Method not found (code -32601)


#8

you need to go to support. I only get the same error if I have no space after dumpprivkey


#9

If you have an error, you might be inputting the incorrect string. This is the proper steps,
First, take your main D address and copy.
Second, open debug log.
Type: dumpprivkey (paste D address)
The output will be your private key.


#10

If the wallet is unlocked for staking only, you can still see the dumpprivkey results. Am I right in saying if your computer is stolen so are your coins? How do you secure your wallet while staking?


#11

You should not use quotes. I don’t use quotes in my dumpprivkey string for Dash and Pivx. Only
dumpprivkey Dxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


#12

You should only stake while your server or node is secure. There is no easy way of protecting an unencrypted wallet from physical theft. Although if you have a screenlock and it was stolen, you could import your privkey into another wallet and move the funds before they were able to remove the password.

Hi,

is there a way to clear debug konsole window so once I checked my private key it cannot be checked while staking? If not do you reccomend getting another adress and not checking private key just backing up the wallet?


#16

Ctrl and L at the same time will clear the debug console.
