EDIT:
How can I gain access to Ethereum in the now discontinued Mist wallet ?
I have a 42 characters code which I presume is the wallet number ? I have the password I used for the wallet. I have a 66 characters code that shows as "Transaction Hash".
The keystore information was destroyed.

Is this information enough to gain access to my ETH balance, or is it lost ?

  • The 42 characters might be the public address, and the 66 characters might be the private key or a transaction hash. If I'm not wrong Mist used .json files to store the encrypted private key.

  • @Ismael unfortunately I don't have the json files. I have a 66 characters code that shows as "Transaction Hash". so my question is this information enough to gain access to my ETH balance, or is it lost ?

  • @c0der It is not possible to operate an Ethereum account without the private key to sign transactions. If you still have the Mist installation check this answer ethereum.stackexchange.com/a/1981 to locate the json files.

You could just use another wallet like metamask and give it your private key and password. Which wallet you use doesn't actually matter.
