I recently bought some bitcoins and got them transferred to my bitcoin core wallet. My fault is that I did not do any research on bitcoin core and found out that it synchronizes with the bitcoin network first before you can actually use your wallet. The synchronization is taking a lot of time. Is there any other way I can access my coins? Thanks!
To do this, you'd have to parse the
.bitcoin/wallet.dat file (possibly using a script like this python script) to recover the private keys, convert them to a WIF (Wallet Import Format) and find another application that will let you import private keys. You might be better off just waiting for it to sync.
