Though I am sure it's probably not the first time you get this inquiry, I am pretty sure it has some unique characteristics.
My name is Roy Arav. I am from Israel. In Israel, banks totally forbid getting/sending money that is related to crypto. So in 2018 I sued the bank in Israel's highest court. In February 2021, I won. (For those of you that know Hebrew, it was published in Israeli newspapers and the verdict was published online.)
Well, the bank appealed this verdict to Israel's supreme court. Winning or losing, it's going to be compelling precedence for all similar cases from now on.
Why am I telling you all this?
I need to prove that there is no money laundering (there isn't) by showing the route of the money (how I bought it, what transactions I did, and how I sold it back to shekels). One of the nodes in this route is an old bitcoin-qt wallet I had till 2019. It's empty now, but I can't access the wallet to see the transactions or even to see some public addresses.
I have my password and an old wallet.dat (I am not sure it's the most up to date one), and I am trying now to re-sync the whole thing (it's going to take at least a week). Any advice? (I don't mind publishing the wallet.dat and password since the wallet should be empty.)
