I'm trying to extract the transaction log from a bunch of wallet.dat files. Not private keys.

All I want is to get access to the transaction log stored inside the wallet.dat.

I can't find any mention of what format this ".dat" file actually has.

Try here, it mentions "bitkeys" format. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4448.0

Also, on the following wiki it mentions Berkely DB and that pywallet can manipulate the file (so you should be able to reuse the raw reading from pywallet): https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Wallet

  • That's the format of the dumps created with the dumpwallet RPC, not the wallet.dat format itself. Nov 7, 2021 at 17:11
