I need help with:

  • Which console commands (Linux) to use to import external USB stick wallet (with passphrase) created by an earlier version of (Linux) Bitcoin Core?

  • How to sweep paper wallet (with passphrase)?

For the first time, I want to transfer from a Bitcoin Core wallet to an exchange to sell.

At the /home/user/.bitcoin directory, replace the wallet name directory with the one to copy.

Make a burner wallet to get some understanding, then replace the burner wallet with the one you want.
