I’ve been trying to transfer some SJCX funds stored on paper wallet to an exchange, so I need to get them into a digital counterparty wallet in order to send them. I have the raw private key only, not the 12 phrase version. So I cant just log straight into the account and send it out.
I create a wallet on counterwallet.io, to sweep it in…but it won’t import because there’s not enough BTC in the address. So I send enough BTC, try the import again 20 minutes later…a few seconds later it tells me the SJCX transfer failed. Public address is of the sending wallet is 1NtbrPmNhjPwGqBbbxTCTK3KciiVALjsjz. And now when I try to import from the private address, the BTC doesnt come up in the box and it asks for more.
So at this point I obviously can’t trust that counterwallet.io is working, and I’m not going to risk any more SJCX or BTC interacting with it. I try indiesquare - no way to import a “real” private key. Same with freewallet and tokenly pockets.
So with only a private key, am I basically SOL trying to move around counterparty-based funds unless I download Armory and hundreds of gigabytes of the bitcoin blockchain? Hopefully there’s at least a way to convert a real private key into the 12 word phrase that counterwallet will accept.
