Did I lose access to my wallet

Recommended Posts

Over a year ago I bought my share of CSC and stored them in a mobile CasinoCoin wallet.

Some months ago I bought a new phone and I was able to move the wallet to my new phone using a backup file I created on time of creation of the wallet. Using my pincode I could access the wallet.

 

However, recently I tried to send some coins to a friend of mine as a gift. This was the first time I wanted to send coins and to my (naive) surprise he asked the password of the wallet. I assumed having access to my wallet (having the wallet on my phone and accessing it using my pincode) was enough to actually send the coins too.

Now the part that really makes me slam my face in the wall:

For some odd reason, I used a different password than my usual passwords and I don't remember after not using it since creating the wallet.
To make things worse I don't find the recovery phrase anymore as it is not with the other recovery phrases of different wallets.

 

So my question: I assumed having the backup file and the pincode of the wallet was enough to access my coins. Is this incorrect? Did I lose my coins if I don't find the passphrase or recovery phrase of my wallet? Thanks in advance for responding.

 

PS. Even though I would agree with the answer "yeah, that's pretty stupid of you", it's not really helpful at this time 🙂

By "Backup File" you mean your secret keys?? If that so, than you just need to import those secret keys into a new wallet and thats it. :drinks:

I think it's an encrypted version of my secret key and password? It's under settings: 'backup wallet'

Sorry I think it's another version. I don't have that one.

I have checked the topic above and have tried for hours now, but I can't seem to manage to get access to my coins again. Anybody who's willing to help me step by step if it's possible to get my access back?

 

I have a backup file of my mobile CSC Wallet and I know the pincode. I don't know the password of recovery phrase however.

I've been in the crypto game for a while, and I've always hated how many versions of "secret" something or another CSC has. We have passwords, we have pins, we have secret keys, we have private keys, and we have secret passphrases. The private keys aren't the same as the private keys in the rest of the crypto-verse, that's the pass phrase. The secret keys only allow you to import your wallet, and the private keys are what you export to have access to your secret keys so you can import.

It's pretty ridiculous, and to be completely honest, I'd probably be fucked if I lost my laptop.
