Help Recover Litecoin (REWARD)

litecoin

#1

A few days ago I seemingly sent litecoin to a dead wallet address. The wallet address was mine and I was sending the coins from coinbase. However, I was running an older version of Electrum (2.9 I believe) and so the coins just never showed up. I would attempt to receive the coins via Electrum 2.9 and I couldn’t. So, I downloaded the most recent version and it works but it gave me a new wallet address. My question is am I SOL or is there still a possibility I could get my coins back?


#2

Could you post both old and new addresses, please?

Also, please post an screenshot of Addresses tab. It is going to look like this (mine is for electrum-bitcoin, tough):

You can enable Addresses tab on View >> Addresses menu


#4


Here is a view of my addresses tab in Electrum 3.0.5


#5


Here is the address I had sent the litecoin to


#6

Do you have any useful info on

File >> Recently Opened?

It displays recently opened Litecoin wallets.

In may case, there are 5 recently opened wallets.


#7

Also, please try File >> Open (CTRL + O). By default, it will show you the directory where your electrum-ltc wallets are stored, and there you can double click which one you want to open.


#8

There is no useful information in the File>> Recently Opened tab. It displays my default wallet. Like I said, I sent the coins to an Electrum address that is outdated. I uninstalled the old version and installed the newer one because I couldn’t receive my coins on the older one


#9

Did you by any chances took note of the “seed” that is generated when you setup electrum wallet?
It should be a list of 12 secret words that is generated at the bigining.

Having access to said list will let you regain control of disapeared coins.


#10

Yes, I was given a seed and I put it into the updated Electrum and it still generated a new wallet address


#11

still not received?

provide the address so other can copy, it is hard for other to eye-copy your address from a screen shot.

Post the address you sent the coins to.
Do you have the electrum seed for the wallet that owns that address?


#12

Here is the old wallet address: LiCHq2cBjiyfQCSBow8gUTDSNBwgv8uQJw
Here is the new:
LcPCW2JdnnHW4in5M6ZPWgWHBkcWkGvJ4D
And yes i have the seed for the old address however when I initially put it into the updated Electrum wallet, it generated a new address instead of recovering my old address


#13

old address has a balance of 2.123 LTC, maybe the words are not for that address/wallet,

do you have another set of seed?

also, do you have the data dir of the old wallet, or you deleted?


#14

Please re-import (create a new wallet) your seed to a new electrum-ltc wallet.

Play arround with “BIP 39 seed” and “extend seed with custom words” options.
Same seed generates different addresses if it interpreted as BIP 39 or BIP 44 seed.
