In 2017, when I first started to mine, I made a wallet in wallet.ethereum.org (I stopped briefly after, so I have around 2.2 ETH in that wallet).

Now in 2021 I tried to go to wallet.ethereum.org but the website seems to be down... and according to some instructions I have to transfer it to MEW using JSON or Keystore, which I don't have them anymore..

The only thing I have is the public address, a username and a password,(key icon) address 0x.........

Is there anything I can do with this to access to my ETH address and transfer my 2.2 eth?

Is there someone that can guide me through this?

Thank you in advance.


If you were mining, I assume that you were running your own node.

In that case, your keystore file should be located in a hidden .ethereum folder here on linux - ~/.ethereum/keystore

If you still have the keystore file for your account in that folder, you should be able to decrypt it using your password. I suggest you use MyEtherWallet to do so. You will then be able to transfer eth from MyEtherWallet.

  • I did it on windows. What if i don't have the keystore anymore is there a way to access it?

  • On Windows, the path to the folder should be ~/AppData/Roaming/Ethereum. If you have completely lost your kestore file, I don't think that you can access your account anymore. The keystore file is your encrypted private key.
