that helps. I've done some reading about getting the keys out of this client. However, there is only a single address shown, and according to fo, the balance is zero and there's never been a transaction at that address. Annoyingly, work got busy, I got distracted, and I never got around to starting up mining again after a computer restart. Second (and assuming the answer to the first question isn't "you're screwed"! Are there any other ways of getting at the address/private key at which the coins are stored? Am I right that the wallet file is so old that it won't correctly be opened by the current Bitcoin Core client? First, upon opening the old client and with the original wallet. In any event, I backed up the entire HDD and stored all the files safely for several years. Dat file in the correct folder, I see a balance of 50 BTC with several hundred confirmations.
It sounded interesting from a technical point of view, so for a laugh I decided to see whether I could get some. The following is based on my very limited understanding of the software involved in Bitcoin (I have a reasonable understanding of the structure of Bitcoin itself at a high level). Many thanks in advance for any help you can offer). Can someone explain what, if anything, this means about the "confirmed" 50 BTC? I've checked other answers to related questions at Stack Exchange, but it seems most people with older wallets are using clients that at least have the debug console. While I never got around to requesting coins that way, I did leave the client on in the background mining. I'm now at the point where I'd like to see whether the coins actually exist and, if so, to sweep them into a more modern wallet. The answers to the following question don't fill me with optimism: Found my old wallet, is it empty? About a week later, I scored 50 coins. Apparently I may be able to use pywallet by jackjack, but not being very familiar with software of this type, I've found it a real struggle to install. Is there some sort of obscured address/private key combo within the client at which the mined coins were stored?
