HOW TO SWAP COINS

In this Post we will tell you how you can swap your coins from the old Blockchain to the new Blockchain.

At the Receiving Tab you will see all of your current Receiving Addresses. In this Tutorial we will explain to you how you get this Addresses into the new Wallet.

#1 RUN THE OLD WALLET

Please open the Debug Window of your Wallet.

Now you have to navigate to the Console of your Wallet and dump your current list of Addresses. To do so you have to write the following Command: dumpwallet NAME.txt

A file with the same name is created on the path of your Machine from where you have started your old MONKEY wallet. In our Tutorial case its located on the Desktop. DONT GIVE ANYBODY ACCESS TO THIS FILE – IT CONTAINS ALL OF YOUR PRIVATE KEYS NOBODY OF THE TEAM WILL ASK YOU TO SEND THEM THIS FILE. STORE THIS FILE SECURE AND DONT SHARE IT WITH ANYONE

#2 RENAME OLD MONKEY FOLDER ON YOUR MACHINE

Close the old Wallet. You can now rename the monkey folder on your machine to monkey_old

On windows it is located on /AppData/Roaming/monkey/ – rename this to monkey_old
On Mac you will find it on /Library/Application Support/monkey – rename this to monkey_old

#3 START THE NEW WALLET

As you can see the new wallet has no receiving addresses so far. We now have to import our dumped monk.txt file into the new wallet.

Open the Debug window again.

Navigate to the console and write importwallet monk.txt – make sure the monk.txt is located on the same folder from where you have started your wallet. The Wallet will now start to import all old walllet addresses.

As you can see, now all old wallet addresses are imported to your new wallet and you are finished. You will receive the coins automatic within the first Blocks on the new blockchain. You can now delete the monk.txt file you created. Make sure nobody gets access to this file.

#4 DELETE THE DUMP TXT FILE

Most important step! Make sure you delete the .txt file and give NOBODY access to it. It stores all of your private keys. Nobody of our Team will ask you to send the file. Please take care. We are not responsible for any loos of funds.
