A few years ago, I mined some bitcoin into a blockchain.info wallet. Now that it’s actually worth something I have a few questions about accessing and securing it. Some of my understandings (and terminology) may be wrong; please correct me as appropriate 🙂
The wallet was created in blockchain.info and has one associated bitcoin address. This address is currently listed by blockchain.info as “imported”. I believe this is because they changed their security at one point and my address isn’t up to their current levels. They recommend that I transfer it to a new address. This will incur transaction fees.
I made one payment from this address a couple of years ago and I didn’t know to sweep the change into a new address. I don’t think blockchain did it for me- the bitcoin address didn’t change…
I have my wallet exported as wallet.aes.json.
I’ve successfully used btcrecover to recover my password (a whole different story). I want to donate some of my bitcoin to the developer of that software.
I want to transfer the entire remaining balance to an offline wallet, created on an air-gapped computer, intended for paper storage.
So, I’m trying to do a lot of stuff at once. Here are my questions:
Can I simply import the wallet into a local client (e.g. Bitcoin Core) and spend the btc from there?
If so, which local clients can import a wallet.aes.json file?
If I can do this import, and then I change the paraphrase locally, how does this affect the blockchain.info wallet? I assume the wallet will reflect when I’ve spent btc, but could I still initiate payments from blockchain.info with the original password?
Can I make a payment to btcrecover and use the change to populate my offline wallet somehow?
