this is the senario
At the beginning of 2014 I download a qt wallet, I did a backup in a external storage
The wallet was empty
In April 2014 I received a payment in litecoin
I forgot to backup the wallet.dat
I have the pubblic address of that payment and I know the person who sent me the payment
In 2017 I formatted my computer, so I delete my appdata folder with the precious wallet.dat and its transaction
Is there any way to get my litecoin back?
is it correct to import my friend privatekey for that transaction to get back my litecoin?
I mean, if he writes ‘dumpprivatekey + address’ in his wallet console and send me that key, and I import that key in my wallt, am I able to get back my litecoin?
Thx for reply.
I’ll be back on this topic after xmass
To be honest i have not completly understood all the steps you wrote in the answer.
Why should i use a bitcoin wallet to sweep a private key of a litecoin wallet.
Anyway i’ ll try to follow your suggestions after xmass: relatives at home , not so much time to spend
Thx for your reply
I downloaded Electrum wallet right now
When you say
1 - Dump The private Key of that address
what do you exactly mean?
So I have lost my privatekey that states that I am the owner of that transaction
So what’s the trick to get back my litecoin?
Question : is there a way to get the private key from the public key thanks to the original wallet?
