I currently have my wallet with blockchain.info.

Is there any way that I can import this address into the bitcoin-qt client?

    Its best you don't reuse addresses anyway so there is no harm in just moving your coins across to a new wallet.

  • Plus, you can be sure that actually nobody grabbed the private key of that address from your browser or from Blockchain.info.

1 Answer 1

  1. Login to your blockchain.info wallet

  2. Select Import/Export

  3. Select Export Unencrypted

  4. Select Bitcoin-Qt Format from the drop-down list

You'll then see information that look like this:


Ignore the other information, what you're looking for are your private keys that look like this: 5KJvsngHeMpm884wtkJNzQGaCErckhHJBGFsvd3VyK5qMZXj3hS

Then just follow Rick's instructions to import each of your private keys into the Bitcoin-Qt client:

  1. Run Bitcoin-QT
  2. Select Help (to the right of Settings)
  3. Select Debug Window
  4. Select Console
  5. Next to the > input box type importprivkey <bitcoinprivkey>

Example: importprivkey 5KJvsngHeMpm884wtkJNzQGaCErckhHJBGFsvd3VyK5qMZXj3hS
