Yesterday I dreamed to see how some of my Bitcoins were doing. I use Multibit HD 0.Four.1. Abruptly MultibitHD showcased the entire wallet being unconfirmed. That means that I couldn’t send any Bitcoins or that Multibit HD has lost its bookkeeping. I find this unacceptable. Who can work with a wallet that can’t do the bookkeeping correctly? So very first begin to fix the kwestie and then look for a better wallet.
I attempted to repair the wallet several times but only a part would become confirmed. So, I still couldn’t get at my money. Even restoring from the seed didn’t help.
When you look at the punt tracker on Github, you see that a loterijlot more people have issues. Especially the closed kwestie tracker, leaves people te the dust without their money. Thesis issues have bot popping up since October 2016 and I toevluchthaven’t seen a warning since. A wallet project should do a good disclosure on any bugs it finds and punt a recommendation to zekering using the wallet until the kwestie is found and dealt with.
I wasgoed able to samenvatting my bitcoins by downgrading to Multibit 0.1.1 and do a repair of my wallet.
I became skeptical after the Multibit people sold the software to KeepKey. Also I needed to repair my wallet last year, which also funked the bejeezus out of mij. Any project that produces a wallet that has a big button called “repair” shoudl do a better job. Those worries are now confirmed. Now getting the heck out of here towards a more sane client like electrum.

Hi, I had Two bitcoin ter a multi-bit wallet and now can’t get into wallet, attempted restore from wallet words but it just says “working” and does nothing.
Is it possible I wasgoed hacked spil I wasgoed using wallet earlier and sent bitcoin, all worked fine.
Is there any way to get my bitcoin?
I have an old multibit wallet and it seems to have lost half my bitcoins (the balance shrunk when I reset the blockchain and transactions -I did this because it only talent mij a spendable amount- which seems to amount now to the amount that is now missing from my multibit wallet). I checked my address on Blockchain and at least the keurig amount is still there- however I am afraid to budge my bitcoins from the Multibit wallet, not that I know how to anyhow- any advice on what to do? I would ideally like to budge my bitcoins (or keys) to Blockchain so that I can store them securely there but I am afraid to do anything with multibit now that this has happened.
Did you use the old 0.1.1 version of Multibit-HD?
Otherwise you have a long wait before you.
I see other comments where people want to recover their BCH that they received with the fork. Like the one listed below. Those tricks should also work with the Bitcoin Core you have te your wallet.
You can get the latest version of the BIP-39 instrument here.
Hi thanks for response , to be fair I don’t understand the technology yet, so I will have to research your response. The version of multibit I have is 0.Five.16 – is that bad?
That will very likely not work. You can find older releases overheen here:
Should I upload the keys into a Multibit HD wallet?
Will that restore my onberispelijk balance?
thanks for your help by the way..
You use the old version of MultibitHD to recreate your wallet with the zindelijk funds, based on the magic 12 words (mnemonic). Then send them to a decent wallet like Electrum, where you have created a fresh wallet.
If you have the private keys, then it’s lighter. Invoer them ter the client Electrum spil shown below.
Just keep on attempting. Just know where you send your Bitcoins/BCH.
thanks again, this is very good advice. The thing is however i can’t recall if there is a mnemonic 12 word password on my bitcoin, would there be one? I used another just normal password to invoer them into the old Multibit waller- do you think that is it? or maybe I have lost the mnemonic ? I hope not.
I have the private keys I think, should I just attempt and invoer them into Electrum? do you think that will recover my utter balance? Thanks again..
