I have a bitcoin address and a private key. What wallet can I use to import the key and address I already have? Every wallet I tried only lets you create a new address or use a 12 world recovery phase to access another wallet.

What wallet will let me directly import my private key & address?

Bitcoin Core supports importing private keys. Use the importprivkey RPC.


I know electrum lets you import private keys. I did this with the portable version but I assume thats its the same with the installed version.


Jaxx allows this: howto-link

Or Exodus: howto-link

Both support multiple currencies. I would look at this list of wallets and if you find one that you like just google "walletname import private keys" too see if it's possible and how to do it.
