There is a so-called gap limit. In Electrum, it's 20 by default but can be changed. But if you changed it up, remember that! Preferably write it next to your wallet's seed. This means that the HD wallet determines the first 20 addresses and checks on a server whether any of them have every been involved in a transaction. Let's say these addresses are ...

MultiBit HD dev here. The mbhd-*.zip.aes backup files are encrypted using an AES key derived from the wallet words. Hence you need your wallet words to do a restore from one of these. The wallet that is opened normally in MultiBit HD is encrypted with your password. This is the *.wallet.aes file. You can also restore just the transactions using only your ...

MultiBit developer here. You'll need to use MultiBit Classic version 0.5.19 available as a download from the site https://multibit.org. This will allow you to open the .key file and synchronise with the block chain to recover all the funds associated with the private keys held in the file. Once you have imported the keys, we strongly recommend that you ...

The default MultiBit HD wallet uses an address generation scheme known as BIP32. Mycelium uses an address generation scheme known as BIP44. BIP44 is what Trezor uses. HD wallet interoperability is unfortunately a bit thorny. It's normally easier to have two wallets.

MultiBit developer here. You should be able to simply spend from your Classic wallet into your new HD wallet. Don't try moving private keys around - that's really easy to get wrong and is one of the reasons we wrote HD in the first place. There are full instructions on upgrading on the MultiBit website: https://multibit.org/en/help/hd0.1/how-to-upgrade-from-...

In multibit HD clicking wallet dashboard under wallet capabilities the BIP32 derivation path was shown as m/0h but as per this post https://github.com/keepkey/multibit-hd/issues/445 the derivation path is m/0'/0 which gave me the correct addresses and private keys.

As far as I know, no wallet uses the same derivation path as Multibit HD so a Multibit HD wallet cannot be restored to another wallet. However, using a site like https://iancoleman.github.io/bip39/, you can get the private keys for your addresses and import them into another wallet. To use https://iancoleman.github.io/bip39/ to get your keys, first download ...

I got help from BTC Portugal (Portuguese slack channel, thank you @riclas, @shutaru and @malmen) and was able to solve this issue. This is what I did (ETA: 10 minutes): Close all running Multibit HD wallets you have. I really mean all, no computer in this planet should be running your wallet at this moment. On a "new", clean computer, or in a Virtual ...

MultiBit HD uses a BIP 32 derivation path that is different from basically all other wallet implementations. MultiBit HD's derivation path is m/0'/0/i whereas most wallets use derivation paths set by BIP 44 which is m/44'/0'/0'/0/i. So when getting addresses from a MultiBit HD seed, you will need to use MultiBit HD's derivation path instead of the default ...

Multibit HD is end of life software so you should migrate to Electrum. The MultibitHD developers themselves advised users to do that. Here's a detailed guide.

Since MultiBit HD uses BIP 39 for its "wallet words" (everywhere else these are known as the mnemonic or the seed phrase), you can import them into any wallet that supports BIP 39 mnemonics. I suggest that you import your mnemonic into Electrum. Note that by default Electrum does not use BIP 39 nor does it use the same BIP 32 derivation paths as MultiBit HD....

To recover your bitcoin cash, you need the access to the private keys of the wallet where your bitcoins were before the fork, which happened at the beginning of August 2017. If you have withdrawn your bitcoins from your Multibit wallet in October 2017, then you can recover bitcoin cash from your Multibit wallet only. If you have no access to your Multibit ...

MultiBit HD uses a different derivation path from all other wallets; it does not use the BIP 44 standard for derivation paths. Thus you cannot use your MultiBit HD mnemonic or extended private key with other wallet software because they use different derivation paths and no wallet currently allows you to set an arbitrary derivation path. The only way that I ...

Unfortunately there is no easy way to do that. MultiBit does not allow you to export private keys and they use their own implementation of AES to encrypt the wallet files so no third party tool (like bitcoinj' wallet tool) can be used to extract the private keys. All you can do is modify the MultiBit source code and run it yourself in order to dump the ...

https://bitcoinfees.21.co can give you an estimate of transaction fees based on the current network activity. It's recommended rate at the moment is 0.0026 BTC/kB to have a good chance of being included in the next block, but this changes often. Lower fees will take longer to confirm typically, but it's hard to be sure how long. At the rate multibit suggests,...

A transaction cannot be both confirmed and unconfirmed. Your transaction is confirmed, just that your wallet is not showing you the right information. This is not normal behavior. This happens when your wallet is no longer synchronized with the rest of the network. You should be able to fix this by going to Manage Wallet and clicking the Repair Wallet button....

Control over money in Bitcoin is defacto[1] binary: either a transaction has been confirmed in a block and the money has been signed over, or the sender remains in control of the money. Hence, when you export the keys from MultiBit and import them to another wallet, you will be able to overwrite your previous transaction by issuing another transaction ...

You can import a Multibit-HD (v0.4.1) wallet into Breadwallet (v38) just by using the 12 seed words and it works fine - Breadwallet shows the right balance and generates the same receive addresses. This has been my preferred method of accessing Multibit-HD wallet from a smartphone.

you can try and use Electrum wallet. Here is a guide on how to transfer coins from Bitcoin core to Electrum https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Transferring_coins_from_Bitcoin-Qt_to_Electrum

Here are my notes on how to recover / rebuild / regenerate / extract the addresses and keys used by MultiBit HD: Go to https://iancoleman.github.io/bip39/ In the field "BIP39 Mnemonic" fill in your 12 wallet generation words No password Coin: Bitcoin Under Derivation Path, select the BIP32 tab Derivation path (copy paste this): m/0'/0 Your addresses are ...

I had a similar problem with the Android Wallet which is also based on bitcoinj. I wanted to transfer my backed up wallet from my old phone to my new phone. The problem I had was that I wanted to take advantage of the new wallet words, as well as have my old addresses with me. The only thing I could come up with is just sending the funds to my new wallet ...

MultiBit HD supports BIP39 seed phrases for BIP32/44 wallets. If a different deterministic algorithm is used then the seed phrase is not compatible. Also note that due to the limitations of SPV mode MultiBit HD is not currently able to support accounts other than 0. You can read more on this here: https://multibit.org/en/help/hd0.3/how-spv-works.html

Edit: I apologize I was for some reason still thinking MultiBit classic, if you are using HD there is a possiblity you created seed words which you would be able to restore from. Information is per: https://multibit.org/try-multibit-hd.html Classic: You're going to need the backup wallet or private keys that were automatically created for you by MultiBit. ...

MultiBit developer here. The version numbers you're supplying are not related to MultiBit. We currently have version 0.2.0 for MultiBit HD and 0.5.19 for MultiBit Classic. There has never been a 0.12 or 0.15 version. Are you sure that you have the correct wallet application? That aside, if you need to empty your wallet in MultiBit Classic, you simply need ...

MultiBit HD developer here. There is a lot of information about restoring wallets in the Help within the wallet and on the website: https://multibit.org/en/help/hd0.1/restore-wallet.html https://multibit.org/en/help/hd0.1/files.html The cloud backup folders are there to allow full restoration of a wallet if you know the wallet words. They will restore ...

I think you want to take a look at the Backups help page on multibit.org. I can't say for certain (as the wording is a tiny bit vague here), but I am pretty sure that each of these are what they're referring to as "rolling backups" which "encrypt a snapshot of the current wallet". If that's true, then each one of these contains the previous ones, so you ...
