I am a bit new to BitCoin and as it happened, I just transfered some money into my wallet when I noticed that my client (MultiBit HD) won't let me log into it anymore. Apparently it's a thing since last version that the client sometimes "forgets" a password or whatever. Either way, I have the wallet on my hard drive but can't log into it. I tried to recover it but recovering the password just gets Multibit stuck and recovering the wallet just creates a new, empty wallet, it seems. I still want to get the money off of my wallet I can't log into though. Ideas? I tried the often suggested method using this site: https://iancoleman.github.io/bip39/
If I got this right, I just enter my key words in the "BIP39 Mnemonic" field, set it to the BIP32-tab and set the client to MultiBit HD. After that, it should give me as many addresses that fit as I like with their corresponding private key, which I would then use to import the wallet somewhere and have access to the money, right? However, I generated 150k results, the address of my faulty wallet wasn't in there and my browser just dies after that. I am trying alternatives now to see if I can get it to work, but if anybody has any ideas? I mean, I have the physical file of the wallet and the key words...I should be able to extract the private key somehow, right?
