Was a question on the ANN thread on how to import a paper wallet private key so it,s time for a guide for that here on the forum too.
Importing a private key to the wallet you can do via the console. You get there by going in help to debug window. In the console you type in "importprivkey" followed by the private key and a label and that looks like this:
After you done that you see the adres in the recieved coins list but there is probably no funds/transactions from that adres visable so you then need to rescan the blockchain. You can do this by creating a shortcut of the .exe, right-click the shortcut and select properties, then in the field labeled Target type -rescan on the end so it looks something like this:
Then just run the shortcut and rescan should restore the imported adres.
In recognition of the Magna Carta's 800th anniversary today, I've put 1215 netcoins into the following Brain Wallet generated address: nPAEMNedn5czRN9i6nc9ffL361VS7Uf9ek that I generated using a pass phrase.
Guess the passphrase to claim the treasure!
To claim the coins simply 1. Check if the treasure chest is still full
Visit netcoinfoundation.org/paperwallet/ Wiggle the mouse around for about 10 seconds until the options appear then click 'Brain Wallet'. Enter your attempted passphrase in the box. If your passphrase generates the address nPAEMNedn5czRN9i6nc9ffL361VS7Uf9ek - CONGRATULATIONS - you are correct!
5. Use the instructions at the top of this thread to import the associated Private key into your wallet. If you need help, do ask here, but DO NOT TELL ANYBODY THE PASSPHRASE OR THE PRIVATE KEY YOU DISCOVERED
6. IMPORTANT: now claim the win as your own - by transferring the coins into another one of your own addresses:
In the wallet, Click Send Coins Under Coin Control Features, click 'Inputs' Find and tick the 1215 NET listed at address nPAEMNedn5czRN9i6nc9ffL361VS7Uf9ek - which is now in your wallet since you imported the private key. Send 1215 net to any other of YOUR OWN addresses (not nPAEMN....). (If you have a cryptsy or casino account, you could also send it straight to those addresses and have fun)
Why you must send the 1215 NETcoins to yourself after importing the private key 'Sending' the 1215 NET to another one of your own addresses means that the next person who solves the puzzle will not get the funds if they import the private key - that balance will be empty and they are now locked up behind your own personal private key.
I will post Magna Carta related clues until it is claimed.
