I am still attempting to complete the receipt of a payment in BitCoin-QT. The initial synchronization is beginning to be a hassle so I thought I might get my key and transfer my wallet to Blockchain.info.
I followed the directions in How do I export my private keys from my Bitcoin-QT?
to get my private key. All I get back for
Invalid Bitcoin address (code -5).
I thought maybe I had the wrong address so I entered
listreceivedbyaddress 0 true.
There are only a couple of addresses since I have a new wallet. All of the addresses returned the same "Invalid Bitcoin address" message. What is going on? I know one of these addresses was used to give to an exchange for my new BC. Is it simply because my blockchain is incomplete and the transaction is incomplete?
