Importing a private key into Swiscoin-Qt

Posted by

To get coins out of a paper wallet, or cold storage, you have to add the addresses’ private key to your “on network” wallet (Swiscoin-Qt). After you do so, your address is no longer a paper wallet or cold storage (basically, it has been used up). Any remaining funds that you want to keep in a paper wallet or cold storage must be sent to a different cold storage address or paper wallet.

Here is how to add the private key to the Swiscoin-Qt (standard) wallet.

Click the “Help” menu and choose “Debug window.”

Go to the “Console” tab.

Type in the command importprivkey leave a space and then paste in the private key. Press <enter> and the client will import the key. It may take a while for it to processes. The address will show up in your “Receive Coins” addresses and becomes part of the Swiscoin-Qt’s wallet. Please note that private keys are normally longer than the example given in the screen shot.

If you encrypted your wallet, you will need to type in this command before the ‘importprivkey’ command:
walletpassphrase ‘your secret password’ ’30’.
