Crypto Administration 2 - Recreate old wallets

It's much easier to create a new cryptocurrency wallet then opening a bank account, so it can happen you have created a lot of wallets during your bitcoin career. And as a logical result you might miss some information from old wallets.

But if you still remember a couple of addresses you can recreate the wallet and all of its transactions with Python Bitcoin library by creating a new readonly wallet.

Setup readonly wallet

If you have the public master key or public account key, you can use that key to setup a readonly wallet with bitcoinlib. The wallet below uses the bitcoin testnet3 network, but you can also specify the bitcoin, litecoin or dash network.

from bitcoinlib.wallets import wallet_create_or_open
