I have a wallet in the Edge Wallet app. When I view "Raw Keys", I see this json:

"format": "bip49 ",
"bitcoinKey": <seed phrase>,
"coinType": 0,
"dataKey": <dataKey gobbledygook>,
"syncKey": <syncKey gobbledygook>

How do I use this information to access/reconstruct this wallet in bitcoin core? A set of exact steps to follow would be nice.

    Does this answer your question? Can a BIP39 12-word mnemonic be used to restore a wallet through bitcoin-cli? – m1xolyd1an Dec 21 '20 at 1:43

    No, not at all. I am not trying to enter a seed phrase into bitcoin core. I'm trying to extract the private key from the given data so that I can import that private key into bitcoin core. – steven Dec 21 '20 at 2:06
  • @steven but you mentioned "seed phrase", so we could have guessed you meant "mnemonic". Does this bitcoinKey field outputs a raw key, an xpub, or mnemonics ? Depending on this i can write an answer.. – darosior Dec 21 '20 at 8:59
  • @darosior the "bitcoinKey" is a 24 word mnemonic seed phrase as you'd expect. If you install Edge wallet, make a bitcoin wallet, then go to View Raw Keys, you'll see output just like what I posted. I'm wanting to use this raw key info to access funds in bitcoin core. – steven Dec 22 '20 at 20:26
