I created an Ethereum address using quorumwallet.com. How can I manually import it to Mist Wallet so I can transact using Mist?

  • Have you created a contract or a contract generated the address for you? – Paweł Bylica Mar 31 '16 at 21:30
  • The contract asked for my key phrases and then generated the account for me on the Blockchain – Roberto Mar 31 '16 at 21:32

    I don't fully understand. Can you tell the Dapp or your created address? – Paweł Bylica Mar 31 '16 at 21:34

    My account was created by a Dapp quorumwallet.com link that asked me to type my key phrase, then the quorumwallet Smart Contract sent it to the blockchain. This account is mine, but the Quorumwallet Smart Contract created it for me. I just want to integrate it on my Mist Wallet. thanks – Roberto Mar 31 '16 at 21:50

You will need to:

  1. Recover the private key to the account as described in Quorum Wallet FAQ.

    seed = String(passphrase) + String(userid);
    privatekey = PBKDF2(seed, seed, 2000, 32, 'sha256');
  2. Import the plain private key to Ethereum Wallet / geth.

  • Hi, I'm using ethereumjs/keythereum to try to create my privatekey with no luck, this are the params I'm using var params = { keyBytes: 32, ivBytes: 16, pbkdf2: { c: 2000, dklen: 32, hash: "sha256" } }; and the code: var dk = keythereum.create(params, this.fullName); var key = keythereum.dump(this.fullName, dk.privateKey, dk.salt, dk.iv); this.ethAccount = JSON.stringify(key);, or can you suggest other way to do it? Thx! – Roberto Apr 8 '16 at 3:32
  • You should add a new question about that to reach bigger audience. I am not familiar with ethereumjs. – Paweł Bylica Apr 8 '16 at 9:28
  • Here is the new question [How can I generate a V3 of the Ethereum wallet file format in js, from strings: 'Passphrase' and 'Email or username' required by Quorumwallet?] (ethereum.stackexchange.com/questions/2793/…) – Roberto Apr 9 '16 at 20:12
