I want to make withdrawal from my Bitcoin address to which I just transferred some bitcoins. The address has changed after I made a transactions to the first address. But it was requesting the private key to create the payment. How can i get the private key to spend fund from the address?

  • What software are you using? Was the first address created in the same software? Where is the private key being requested? – Murch Apr 4 '17 at 17:18

    I think you misunderstand something. A single wallet file can have many addresses. Your address didn't "change"; the wallet does not have a single address or anything. – markasoftware Apr 7 '17 at 3:01

Private keys cannot be recovered. If you lose or forget the private key, the bitcoins become unspendable.

  • not true... I lost 15 bitcoin privates and I paid a service online to recover my private keys. I did not have them in a virtual wallet. I had them on a usb. One Usb with public and one usb with private. Service cost 20%. Rather have 80% of something! – marlin Dec 11 '17 at 9:59
  • @marlin "I paid a service online to recover my private keys" - You must be very delusional. – Callerap Dec 11 '17 at 15:35
