Unhappy Trying to recover my dogecoin wallet


It is worth roughly $500 USD now.

I have a file called

dogecoin-wallet-backup-2017-12-02

it is roughly 31KB in size and it starts with this

The wallet file is read by the dogecoin software, "MultiDoge".

First, download and install the MultiDoge software (and a Java Runtime Environment, unless you have one installed already).

Then run the wallet application and tell it to open your wallet file. Enter your password, and you're done.

Thanks a lot for your help. Your response definitely helped and I learned something new.

I did install MultiDoge

It did not ask me for any password

I saw "Sychronizing... 1% " and the 1% kept going up over the last night,

and it appears it did reach 100% and now I see this screen

It looked like that for the past 4 hours.

It did not ask for any password. I can certainly wait for a few more days if necessary.

It seems MultiDoge allows for passwordless wallets.

I don't know anything about how the DogeCoin blockchain works, nor have I any idea how long it will take MultiDoge to synchronize the wallet. It may take quite some time.

But it does appear to work.
