Hi guys I was cleaning my old hard drives and found a few backups of my old wallet.dat

Is there anyway I can easily check the contents? I don't want to download the whole 100gb+ chain again. Multidoge uses its own .wallet extension

Any online methods?

I sometimes open up my old wallet.dat in Bitcoin-Qt and watch the transactions come in live, so it feels like I have 3 BTC again.

Hello, I think I'm doing this right but I'd like to be 100% sure.
I have the up-to-date bitcoin core v.0.15.0.1 running windows7 and almost synced. The software shows the balance of whichever 'wallet.dat' is in it's directory, right? There are no hidden stumbling block like having to run the bitcoin-qt.exe with -rescan or -updatewallet (for an old wallet file) commands? Or a mandatory import wallet process?
And if so, how to do that correctly?

Accessing my Bitcoin w/my .dat files

Hi. So....in 2013/2014 I bought some Bitcoin. A couple of years later my computer croaked. I was able to create .dat files for my bitcoin and litecoin. (I think I used an old ripple wallet, if that makes sense). Anyway...I still have the .dat files and the password data. I downloaded the Bitcoin Core. Now I'm stuck. I don't know how to import the .dat files and/or to see what is in my old wallet. Any thoughts?

Old (2013) Electrum wallet - how to import

Hi!
I do have a very old, 2013 Bitcoin wallet in Electrum. I do have a wallet.dat and a blockchain_headers file of that date.
How can use this to restore my old wallet. Actually I am not even sure if there is something in it...
As I saw the latest Electrum version has a wallet.dat and wallet folder. This is nothing I have found in my old data.
Thanks.

Found old wallet.dat file from 2012

Hi there - just wondering if there's an easy way to check an old wallet.dat file that I found from long ago. I know nothing about bitcoin, I don't use it for anything, but I think I may have mined it for a few days a long time ago and it would be nice to know if I have even 0.1 coins to my name.I have read numerous posts and articles telling me to "Download and sync the core" - my hard drive can't hold that much data - it's only a 256 SSD - how can I check my balance? I've read about "pruning" as well - would that work or do I need the whole blockchain on my hard drive to check?
It's all very confusing and I'd really appreciate a simple explanation. Thanks!

Gridcoin 5.0.0.0-Mandatory "Fern" Release

https://github.com/gridcoin-community/Gridcoin-Research/releases/tag/5.0.0.0
Finally! After over ten months of development and testing, "Fern" has arrived! This is a whopper. 240 pull requests merged. Essentially a complete rewrite that was started with the scraper (the "neural net" rewrite) in "Denise" has now been completed. Practically the ENTIRE Gridcoin specific codebase resting on top of the vanilla Bitcoin/Peercoin/Blackcoin vanilla PoS code has been rewritten. This removes the team requirement at last (see below), although there are many other important improvements besides that.
Fern was a monumental undertaking. We had to encode all of the old rules active for the v10 block protocol in new code and ensure that the new code was 100% compatible. This had to be done in such a way as to clear out all of the old spaghetti and ring-fence it with tightly controlled class implementations. We then wrote an entirely new, simplified ruleset for research rewards and reengineered contracts (which includes beacon management, polls, and voting) using properly classed code. The fundamentals of Gridcoin with this release are now on a very sound and maintainable footing, and the developers believe the codebase as updated here will serve as the fundamental basis for Gridcoin's future roadmap.
We have been testing this for MONTHS on testnet in various stages. The v10 (legacy) compatibility code has been running on testnet continuously as it was developed to ensure compatibility with existing nodes. During the last few months, we have done two private testnet forks and then the full public testnet testing for v11 code (the new protocol which is what Fern implements). The developers have also been running non-staking "sentinel" nodes on mainnet with this code to verify that the consensus rules are problem-free for the legacy compatibility code on the broader mainnet. We believe this amount of testing is going to result in a smooth rollout.
Given the amount of changes in Fern, I am presenting TWO changelogs below. One is high level, which summarizes the most significant changes in the protocol. The second changelog is the detailed one in the usual format, and gives you an inkling of the size of this release.

Highlights

Protocol

Note that the protocol changes will not become active until we cross the hard-fork transition height to v11, which has been set at 2053000. Given current average block spacing, this should happen around October 4, about one month from now.
Note that to get all of the beacons in the network on the new protocol, we are requiring ALL beacons to be validated. A two week (14 day) grace period is provided by the code, starting at the time of the transition height, for people currently holding a beacon to validate the beacon and prevent it from expiring. That means that EVERY CRUNCHER must advertise and validate their beacon AFTER the v11 transition (around Oct 4th) and BEFORE October 18th (or more precisely, 14 days from the actual date of the v11 transition). If you do not advertise and validate your beacon by this time, your beacon will expire and you will stop earning research rewards until you advertise and validate a new beacon. This process has been made much easier by a brand new beacon "wizard" that helps manage beacon advertisements and renewals. Once a beacon has been validated and is a v11 protocol beacon, the normal 180 day expiration rules apply. Note, however, that the 180 day expiration on research rewards has been removed with the Fern update. This means that while your beacon might expire after 180 days, your earned research rewards will be retained and can be claimed by advertising a beacon with the same CPID and going through the validation process again. In other words, you do not lose any earned research rewards if you do not stake a block within 180 days and keep your beacon up-to-date.
The transition height is also when the team requirement will be relaxed for the network.

GUI

Besides the beacon wizard, there are a number of improvements to the GUI, including new UI transaction types (and icons) for staking the superblock, sidestake sends, beacon advertisement, voting, poll creation, and transactions with a message. The main screen has been revamped with a better summary section, and better status icons. Several changes under the hood have improved GUI performance. And finally, the diagnostics have been revamped.

Blockchain

The wallet sync speed has been DRASTICALLY improved. A decent machine with a good network connection should be able to sync the entire mainnet blockchain in less than 4 hours. A fast machine with a really fast network connection and a good SSD can do it in about 2.5 hours. One of our goals was to reduce or eliminate the reliance on snapshots for mainnet, and I think we have accomplished that goal with the new sync speed. We have also streamlined the in-memory structures for the blockchain which shaves some memory use.
There are so many goodies here it is hard to summarize them all.
I would like to thank all of the contributors to this release, but especially thank @cyrossignol, whose incredible contributions formed the backbone of this release. I would also like to pay special thanks to @barton2526, @caraka, and @Quezacoatl1, who tirelessly helped during the testing and polishing phase on testnet with testing and repeated builds for all architectures.
The developers are proud to present this release to the community and we believe this represents the starting point for a true renaissance for Gridcoin!

Summary Changelog

Accrual

Changed

Most significantly, nodes calculate research rewards directly from the magnitudes in EACH superblock between stakes instead of using a two- or three- point average based on a CPID's current magnitude and the magnitude for the CPID when it last staked. For those long-timers in the community, this has been referred to as "Superblock Windows," and was first done in proof-of-concept form by @denravonska.

How to move Bitcoin off of old computer?

I am getting ready to update my computer and I have to move some crypto wallets off of the computer before I do that as a safety. I havent looked at this stuff in years.
  1. I am using the Bitcoin-qt wallet on my pc and I have backed up the wallet.dat files to a few locations and burned them to a CD. Is that enough?
  2. I would really like to move the bitcoins and litecoins to a paper wallet. Can I make a paper wallet out of my bitcoin-qt or can I get the keys out somehow?
  3. If I send the bitcoins to coinbase is the IRS going to see that and tax me? Also by sending them to coinbase will that automatically give me the bitkash or all these spinoffs from bitcoin?
  4. Also a dumb question (been 6 years since I looked at this stuff) When I open the bitcoin-qt wallet where is my bitcoin address. The address if I wanted someone to send me bitcoin?
Thanks for the help.
