Step 1: Backup Your Wallet
Always be safe. Before getting started, make sure your wallet is properly backed up. Do a simple backup (File — Backup Wallet):
Step 2: Export Wallet Addresses (Private Keys)
In this step, we use a command to instantly expose your private keys. Do this process securely and use the command below carefully. While your private keys are exposed, your coins are at risk. Do not share your private keys with anyone, and destroy the unencrypted version after this process.
Open the debug (Tools — Debug console) in the old BitGreen Wallet 1.3.2:
Type the dumpwallet command in the debug console:
You might have to type it twice if you get a warning message. You should now see the file on your desktop, or where ever your BITG Wallet is located:
Once you have the bitgwallet.txt file saved, your ready to download the new BitGreen wallet!
Step 3: BitGreen Wallet Download
Next, it’s time to download the BitGreen wallet from Github. Only download the wallet from the official Github.
You can't perform that action at this time. You signed in with another tab or window. You signed out in another tab or…
Select your wallet. For this setup I used win64.zip:
Download the wallet and extract. Open the “bin” folder to find bitgreen-qt.
Step 4: Delete Old Blockchain Files
Before installing the new wallet, you’ll need to clear out the old BitGreen configuration files. These are in the Roaming folder which can be found at:
Move the BitGreen folder to the trash.
Step 5: Open Wallet & Add Peers
Open the new wallet by running “bitgreen-qt” as an Administrator or right clicking and selecting Open on Mac:
Now open the Console (Tools — Console) and enter the addnodes command:
addnode 184.108.40.206 onetry
addnode 220.127.116.11 onetry
addnode 18.104.22.168 onetry
addnode 22.214.171.124 onetry
addnode 126.96.36.199 onetry
addnode 188.8.131.52 onetry
addnode 184.108.40.206 onetry
The wallet should immediately begin synchronizing with the network and will quickly download the new blockchain.
Step 6: Import Wallet
The final step is to import your wallet that we saved on the desktop. Open the Console (Tools — Console) and type the following command using the destination where you sent the dumpwallet above:
Wait about 2 minutes and your wallet balances will be restored.
Step 7: Delete Private Keys & Encrypt Your Wallet
Once your balance is restored, delete the Private Keys that are exposed from your dumpwallet. You don’t want to leave the keys file, it’s in an unencrypted form:
Next, encrypt your new wallet. Go to Settings — Encrypt Wallet
