Restoring old wallet

6 posts in this topic

Hello all,

The price is getting to a level where it's time to buy some. I have an old wallet with some WDC, could somebody give a noob-proof guide how to restore an old wallet into a new one?

Help is highly appreciated since I'd really hate losing my WDCs. Thanks a lot!

Broadly speaking:

1) Exit any Worldcoin app currently running

2) Install new version. Pay special attention to the step where it asks where the chain will be stored (change the default path if you want and write it  down)

3) Exit new version application

4) Copy wallet.dat from old installation to the path from step 2

5) Run new version

Thanks alot guys.

This far I've been using a Mac wallet, but it's not supported nowadays so I'm getting a WIN10 desktop to run the wallet.

I assume (and hope) that WIN and Mac wallet.dat files are compatible with each other?
