Wallet Import Format

  • Wallets expose private keys using a people-friendly Wallet Import Format (WIF). After a community friend mistakenly sent QTUM to a Litecoin address I took a close look at how WIFs are created to try and rescue the missing QTUM.

    Today I Learned (TIL) how to construct and deconstruct WIF private keys, which are used by crypto currency wallets because they have several features which make them safer for error-prone people.
