  • This sounds like a scam. There is no guarantee that whomever gave you the watch-only wallet even has the private key for it. Commented Aug 15, 2023 at 14:26

  • I dont think you need the private key to create a watch-only wallet

  • No, but you cannot access funds with a watch-only wallet; as the name says, it is only for watching. You should not assume anyone has the ability to give you access to those funds. Commented Aug 15, 2023 at 15:14
  • Pieter i totally understand that, i cannot spend or even transfer anything from a watch only wallet, that is why i was even asking if it is ever possible to changes its state from watch-only to a normal wallet that can transfer or spend its contents.
