Trying to get the wallet running and it is just sitting there 0%. How long should it take to sync first time?

Will there be a light wallet coming?

The wallet initially is syncing 28 million addresses so the first few blocks take a long time, or appear to. After that its fast. Please insure you aren't blocking port 8334 and that you have peers. Also post support questions in support channel from now. This was moved for you.

I ran the wallet, it synchronized and seems to be setup with some default address when it installed.

I looked everywhere but can't figure out how to import my wallet. As such, it is completely unusable for me. Any hints how i can import my wallet?

Also, how is the Electrum wallet coming? I saw that BCI team were planning to release it very shortly.

  1. Run BitcoinInterest-Core
  2. Select Help (to the right of Settings)
  3. Select Debug Window
  4. Select Console
  5. If you encrypted your wallet, unlock it by entering walletpassphrase "YourLongPassphrase" 600next to the > input box
  6. Next to the > input box type importprivkey <bitcoinprivkey> (Note that the private key must not have spaces, remove them if they are included in your backup)

Example: importprivkey 5KJvsngHeMpm884wtkJNzQGaCErckhHJBGFsvd3VyK5qMZXj3hS
