Lost Private Key But Have Recovery Passphrase - AM I SCREWED?

Recommended Posts

It's a real shame because that wallet belongs to me and I paid my hard earned money for it 😞

I purchased the coins around 1 year ago and have waited patiently for the release of BRM. Timing couldn't be any worse as people are now expecting things to develop imminently and I don't have any fiat to buy more just yet.

I wonder if @Daniel Keller can possibly do anything to help retrieve my wallet?

Edit - ignore the above rant. Losing private keys seems to be a fairly common issue in crypto having researched similar issues on the Internet with no chance of recovery.

I'll just have to buy again in small chunks and hope this thing doesn't take off until I've accumulated my initial value.

It's very unfortunate, but as you said in the edit it's common issue if you neglect to backup . Crypto is based on concept of an individual being responsible for their own money ,keys, coins. No one is able to edit,or retrieve anything from the network itself. 

Good luck ! 

 

What you can do for the future, is set up Google drive and automatically backup your key folders, it's not as secure option but definitively better than not backing up .

This thread will be locked and tagged as solved.

the only options to get your coins back would be:

- find the .keys file if you exported it manually or since 4.1.2 the wallet does it automatically to C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents (don't have unix/mac path in mind)
- have a backup of the .casinocoin folder
- Use something like Kali Linux to clone the disk and run some recovery OR go to some professional to do it
