In some cases you will only hold a single private key that you wish to import into BlockWallet. Unlike many wallets you can do this with ease inside BlockWallet
Notes on importing a private key
You can import your private key into BlockWallet and start using the account as you would a regular BlockWallet account.
You need to be aware that this account will not be recovered in case you lose access to your wallet and use your seed phrase to recover your wallet.
A seed phrase deterministically gives you access to a set of accounts. An account imported using a private key is not a part of this set.
What you will need
You will need a private key to import your account in a format such as this:
Import your account using your private key
- Click the BlockWallet logo on home, next to your account name and address.
- Click Create Account.
- Click Import Account.
- Type in your desired account name. By default, the name of the account will be "Account X", with the variable X representing the sequential number of wallets that exist for your account.
- Paste the Private Key inside the "Private Key String" field and click Import.
Congratulations! You have successfully imported your existing account into BlockWallet. Your funds and tokens should now be accessible through BlockWallet's interface.
Remember to keep your private key safe and secure, as it is essential for account recovery and maintaining access to your funds.
