So the ethereum wallet that no one ever sets a password for.... what is this "imported 27 state entries" stuff? I thought I sync'd the whole blockchain; how many state entries am I supposed to import? I succeeded in making one exchange from btc to ether using shifty - tried again with a larger amount - btc was sent from my coinbase account - windows shifty - shapeshift client awaiting deposit was marked with a green tick - awaiting exchange was ongoing - i closed the client window and i see no transaction at all in my ethereum wallet after 10 hours - have I lost my money? if there are problems with the conversion process or its on-going - how can i find out? getting real worried here.... How do I initiate Crowdsale / Crowdequity using Ethereum ? @alexvandesande could you let me abt password for etherbase account .. Does it will have password or not by default @cryptofollower9_twitter theres no default password. If you have an etherbase account, it means you created it at some point in the past @alexvandesande I forgot abt password .. Up to my knowledge I didnt set any password . so hopefully it shouldn't ask me password when I transfer from base account , as it didnt ask me password while depositing from mist shapeshift window. Of course youll need the password for that account! If you forgot it, then you can always create a new address, but the ether you transfered will be locked there Not necessarily, you must have created that password at some point. Had you ever installed geth, mist or anything from ethereum? Maybe just try a combination of your common passwords? ok, still I am trying to sync with blockchain .. geth is very slow... my etherbase account is created in MIST, While installing Mist I gave a password and it is missing, after setup completed It showed me Continue reading >>

How Ethereum Occasionally Backdoored The Officialwallet

How Ethereum Occasionally Backdoored The Officialwallet

How Ethereum Occasionally Backdoored the OfficialWallet In June 2016 there was a commit to start using as a starting page inside Mist adds default wallet hosted by github * change to ethereum.org page, adds id to avoid inserting multiple times * newgithub.com The difference between Ethereum Wallet and Mist: Ethereum Wallet is just a Mist implementation that can only access a single Dapp the wallet dapp , this is due to missing features in Mist itself and so that we are able to release earlier. In order to move fast they just hot load the wallet HTML/JS from Github Pages repo at every time you open your wallet to check balance or do some transfer. Which means youre trusting Central Authorities for https, Github for code storage, CloudFront of Amazon and what else? Feels like most CDN companies control the contents of main Wallet DApp (ironically, stands for Decentralized App). Look at the headers below: This is bad. Im not aware of working RCE for Mist ( there was one just 2 months ago ) but they explicitly tell you all the time to not visit untrusted websites (i.e. all websites) except their own. However, their own is not any better. Im not aware how to steal funds instantly on the first load I have no time to dig into this hipster pile of dependencies. Apparently each transaction requires an explicit password unlock by a higher level Mist dialog: Nevertheless, you can hijack any activity happening inside the wallet: a destination address, replace the victims address so the victim will never receive the funds they expected or you can just pick up an RCE vector that pop-up in their browser after every audit and own the whole machine. Wallet, being such a core functionality of the blockchain network, must be a tightly coupled app, not HTML file hot-loaded via CAs https f Continue reading >>

Mist Wallet Password Not Working... - Ethtrader

Mist Wallet Password Not Working... - Ethtrader

My password is not working for my main account (etherbase). It was the account that was created when I made the wallet. When creating the wallet I made the password and engraved into a piece of metal and screenshotted it so I wouldn't forget it but now whenever I'm trying to send ether or open a contract it says I have wrong password. I even tested to unlock it with geth but it only says; error, couldn't decrypt key with given passphrase. This sucks. Anything I could do to reset password? Edit: for people who Google and can't find answers I hope this helps; mist sometimes leaves special characters out so try writing your password without special characters. Did you leave caps lock on? Did you switch your keyboard layout from one country to another? I've made both those mistakes... 4 - 5 years account age. 500 - 1000 comment karma. Have you tried importing the keystore file (ie, that account's private key) into MyEtherWallet and entering entering that password to unlock the account in MEW? I'm guessing the answer will be "yes" but still worth a try, given the complexities of Mist can sometimes throw users (eg, not being able to access accounts because the blockchain is not fully synchronised, or having different keystore files in Mist confuse matters) with MyEtherWallet sometimes providing a workaround. I figured it out! Looks like mist just didn't register some special characters and just left them out. I got it to work! Continue reading >>

Securely Generating And Storing An Ethereumwallet

Securely Generating And Storing An Ethereumwallet

Securely Generating and Storing an EthereumWallet With the rise of Ethereum and Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), especially ERC20 tokens , people unfamiliar with Ethereum or other cryptocurrencies like BitCoin are becoming interested in the technology. Unfortunately, getting started with Ethereum and participating in ICOs is not simple. The central component in Ethereum is the wallet. An Ethereum wallet is what holds your Ether and other Ethereum-based tokens, and conceptually can be thought of like a real wallet. Like a real wallet, an Ethereum wallet can be stolen. You shouldnt leave it out, or stored on a device that is often connected to the internet, or it risks being hacked. There is no recovery for a stolen wallet the courts cannot help you recover it, and you cant reverse what happens. This guide will explain how to safely generate and store an Ethereum wallet. MyEtherWallet is an open source project to make it simple to create an Ethereum wallet and interact with the Ethereum platform. It is hosted at myetherwallet.com , but its just a static web page. The safe, recommended way of using MyEtherWallet is to download the website yourself, so that there is no risk you go to the wrong website. This also allows you to use MyEtherWallet without being connected to the internet. You can download the latest version of the MyEtherWallet website as a zip file at this link . Download the etherwallet-v, not the chrome extension. When you unzip the file, you get a list of files containing a website. Unzipped MyEtherWallet. Double click index.html to openit. Open index.html to launch MyEtherWallet. Through the magic of mathematics, you can easily create a password-protected Ethereum wallet that no one will ever be able to duplicate accidentally. There are many more available E Continue reading >>

How Can I Recover Or Reset A Lost Wallet Password?

How Can I Recover Or Reset A Lost Wallet Password?

How can I recover or reset a lost wallet password? Let's say that a user has lost or forgotten their password. Is there a way to reset the password or recover it? These are related posts, but do not answer your question directly. I hope someone can make a walkthrough, I don't have the knowledge though. reddit.com/r/ethereum/comments/46887p/ forum.ethereum.org/discussion/3045/ reddit.com/r/ethereum/comments/3g6aw0/ tayvano Mar 12 '16 at 17:43 There is no way for the Ethereum Foundation to reset your password, but some enterprising community members have developed tools to assist with the password recovery process. If you are familiar with Python (or willing to learn some basics), the best tool so far is a particular version of pyethrecover . Let us suppose that you know part of your password, but can't remember all of it (or perhaps you put in a typo during the presale or when you created the wallet). You can easily input the parts of the password you remember, and then add possible characters to check for those parts of the password you've forgotten. The program will then check all permutations of that possible password space to see if any combination unlocks your wallet. This is a lot easier than manually typing every possibility. I've also saved a screen shot of the original presale page in case that helps jog your memory. This is a tool for those of you who've somehow lost your Ethereum wallet password. pyethrecover is a library for brute forcing your wallet with a list of passwords you generally use. Means you will have to create a text file with possible passwords and run the pyethrecover script to check each password against your wallet. Your wallet must be exported in a .json file and name it ethereum-wallet.json Create a file named passwords.txt and fill it wit Continue reading >>

Account Management Ethereum Homestead 0.1 Documentation

Remember to use a strong and randomly generated password. We just created our first account. If we try to list our accounts again we can see our new account: > eth.accounts["0xb2f69ddf70297958e582a0cc98bce43294f1007d"] For the command line averse, there is now a GUI-based option for creating accounts: The official Mist Ethereum wallet. The Mist Ethereum wallet, and its parent Mist project, are being developed under the auspices of the Ethereum Foundation, hence the official status. Versions of the wallet app are available for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows. The Mist wallet is beta software. Please beware and use it at your own risk. Creating an account using the GUI Mist Ethereum wallet couldnt be easier. In fact, your first account is created during the installation of the app. Download the latest version of the wallet app for your operating system. Opening the Wallet App will kick off syncing a full copy of the Ethereum blockchain on your computer, since you will in effect be running a full geth node. Unzip the downloaded folder and run the Ethereum-Wallet executable file. Wait for the blockchain to fully sync, then follow the instructions on the screen and your first account will be created. When you launch the Mist Ethereum wallet for the first time, you will see the account you created during the installation process. By default it will be named MAIN ACCOUNT (ETHERBASE). Creating additional accounts is easy; just click on ADD ACCOUNT in the apps main screen and enter the required password. The Mist wallet is still in active development, so details of the steps outlined above may change with upgrades. Creating a Multi-Signature Wallet in Mist The Mist Ethereum wallet has an option to secure your wallet balance with a multisig wallet. The advantage of using a multisig Continue reading >>

Ethereum Wallet Cracking

Ethereum Wallet Cracking

hashcat v3.6.0 was released yesterday and one of the newly supported hashes was Ethereum wallets ( Go Ethereum (Geth) , Mist and MyEtherWallet variants). This guide will show how a MyEtherWallet JSON keystore file is broken down, how its mapped to a hashcat compatible format, and finally an example crack. First lets get our wallet. Thats as easy as going to MyEtherWallet , entering a password, clicking generate and downloading it. MyEtherWallet suggests you enter a strong password (at least 9 characters). Firstly this isnt a suggestion it wont let you generate your wallet unless your its at least 9 characters. Secondly, I wouldnt say 9 characters is particularly strong, but thats an argument for another day. If you dont set a wallet name, a default is provided (as ours is) which comprises of the UTC time/date generated, followed by your new Ethereum wallet address. Our wallets password is [email protected]!and the generated keystore file can be found below which is coloured to show how its mapped to the hashcat compatible format.

Password Requirments

Password Requirments

Hi guys. Here are the standard steps that we offer from helpdesk on password recovery: If you need help jogging your memory, you can visit our old sale site at: -- this sometimes helps if you have a standard algorithm that you use for generating passwords without a password generator. For brute-force password recovery, you can try using (requires Python and the bitcoin package from python-pip). If you know at least part of your password, you can use this program to automate the testing of permutations of your known password characters (just add them all to a text file). The forked version of pyethrecover (linked above) does offer some options for generating permutations around known blocks of your password; try that tool. We don't yet have a tool that will generate a dictionary list of possible password combinations; I'll look around for something useful I've got a similar problem but with a regular keychain. The etherbase is encrypted with a pass I forgot as I had installed the wallet in early March. Started mining last month and completly forgot that Mist asked me to encrypt the wallet before installation... Got used with Bitcoin wallet as the encryption is optional... which I encrypt after getting some coins and then back it up... Now I've been trying (HARD) to remember and eve wrote some simple scypts to test various password combos as I have a large but limited repository of words and numbers I use on a regular basis... But I used geth --unlock $etherbase which is awfully slow... The keychain looks like it's json formatted but that nifty python tool fails with File "./pyethrecover.py", line 227, in __main__ and hangs the terminal with that last function (like reseting the term) Was this even meant to work with the keychain? There are very few words on this on the Continue reading >>

How To Set Up A Private Ethereum Blockchain Using Geth

How To Set Up A Private Ethereum Blockchain Using Geth

Were creating a new, completely private blockchain, so lets store it elsewhere. Run the following to store Node #1s copy of our private blockchain in a LocalNode1 folder (it will get created with this command): geth --datadir "~/Library/LocalNode1" init genesis.json (This assumes the genesis.json file you created is in the same directory from which youre running these commands.) Run the following to store Node #2s copy of our private blockchain in a LocalNode2 folder: geth --datadir "~/Library/LocalNode2" init genesis.json You can look inside the directories Geth just created at ~/Library/LocalNode1 and ~/Library/LocalNode2. Youll soon notice how the contents of the geth directory grows as we add to our chain. Now that we have the first block written and our configuration variables set, we can launch the geth console to interact with the blockchain from our first node. geth --datadir "~/Library/LocalNode1" --networkid 1234 --port 11111 --nodiscover console The networkid here has to match the chainID we set in the genesis.json file. --nodiscover means that even though were running an Ethereum client, we dont want other people in the world trying to connect to our chain. Finally, port is the port number our node will communicate with other peers over. Once you run that command, you should see a message Welcome to the Geth JavaScript console! appear towards the bottom of your terminal. We have just opened our console to interact with our first nodes copy of our blockchain. Now, open another tab in Terminal. Well now set up a console for our second Node to interact with the same blockchain. geth --datadir "~/Library/LocalNode2" --networkid 1234 --port 11112 --nodiscover console Notice that the datadir corresponds to the directory where we are storing the blockchain for our Continue reading >>

The Ethereum Wallet: An Introduction Fornon-devs

The Ethereum Wallet: An Introduction Fornon-devs

The Ethereum Wallet: An Introduction forNon-Devs This post is meant to be skimmed. Read the bold text and if you run into problems, the rest of the text will help you troubleshoot. Ethereum is an incredible platform. It enables anyone and everyone the power to play with programmable money like never before. Thus far the project has been relatively inaccessible to users that are not highly technical Until now. Alex van de Sande and Fabian Vogelsteller have recently given us the Ethereum Wallet: probably the coolest wallet in Crypto. With their simple graphical user interface, finally non-developers can work directly with Ethereum, building tokens, DAOs and crowdfunding campaigns without needing to use the command line! I am one of the few people working in the Ethereum space that is not a developer, so I have a surprisingly unique perspective: the not a hacker genius perspective. I wrote this tutorial because there were more than a couple steps that were missing in other tutorials that seemed obvious to developers, but werent obvious to me. This tutorial assumes you have almost no experience with writing code but you have already had an introduction to Ethereum, maybe you even own some ether, but you have no plans on actually doing anything with it. The surprising thing is that Ethereums programming language, Solidity, is extremely straightforward and easy to read, write and understand. In fact, this tutorial features a smart contract that I created! It is the first program I have written since a Java class I took over a decade ago. Warning! It is not the best or most efficient code, dont use my smart contract as a model to build real smart contracts! Alex van de Sande rewrote this contract using a third as many lines of code, but my version was used for this tutorial b Continue reading >>

How To Recover Your Lost Myetherwallet (mew) Password

How To Recover Your Lost Myetherwallet (mew) Password

How to Recover your Lost MyEtherWallet (MEW) Password Google shows tens of thousands of results for the query lost myetherwallet password. While not all of those results represent a person that has lost access to their Ethereum or tokens, many do. In this article were going to lay out a process for recovering access to your wallet. This process wont work 100% of the time, but at the least youll know that you have exhausted all possibilities. First, lets just talk briefly about MyEtherWallet.com (MEW). Although you can access the site over the web, it is not an online wallet. That is, you are not creating an account on MyEtherWallet.com you are simply using tools published by MEW to create and manage a private key, so that you can interact with the Ethereum blockchain. One implication of this is that your private key is not stored by MyEtherWallet.com, and theres no account on that website that you can log into, and no set of customer support folks that can change your password to your private key if you lose it. If you saved your 12 word mnemonic phrase when you created your MEW wallet, you can recover the wallet at any point by using that phrase. Click Send Ether & Tokens in the toolbar at the top Select Mnemonic Phrase as the answer to the question: How would you like to access your wallet? However, if you have gone through the trouble of finding this article it is unlikely that you have your 12 word recovery phrase available. So, lets pull together the resources you need to recover your wallet without the recovery phrase. The first step in recovering access to your wallet is to locate your Keystore file. The Keystore file is essentially a copy of your Ethereum private key that has been encrypted with the password that you chose when you created a new wallet using ME Continue reading >>
