I had a really hard time converting my Bitcoin-QT wallet.dat files to something that is possible to import to Multibit Wallet. (Not that hard but stupid to go all that way for something that should have been simple)
So I ended up writing a python program to do so from now on.
Bitcoin Wallet Convertor (for now) 1.0
OWF.py reads the keys from Bitcoin-QT wallet (e.g wallet.dat) and exports them to MultiBit wallet format (e.g multibit.key) but also applicable for Blockchain.info imports
I used jackjack-jj fork of Pywallet.py (https://github.com/jackjack-jj/pywallet) to read wallet.dat and it is included in this repository. so you need to install the pywallet dependencies prior to the use of this.
Why should I use this?
To Convert your wallet.dat (or exported wallet from Bitcoin-QT) to:
WARNING: the output is not encrypted so take good care of the file!
Usage: OWF.py [options]
–version show program’s version number and exit
-h, –help show this help message and exit
–wallet=Wallet wallet.dat or the exported wallet from Bitcoin-QT to be converted
–newwallet=NewWallet New wallet name (multibit format) (in the same directory as the –wallet
./OWF.py –wallet ./wallet.dat
./OWF.py –wallet ./wallet.dat ./newwallet.key
