Sweeping paper sweeping private keys from 2009-2010 into electrum wallet

I have several wallets from 2009 and 2010 that have not been touched since day one.I recieved 25 dollars USD worth of BTC for downloading and running a program in the background. Im guessing i was mining BTC. Didnt think another thought about it. I was alittle irritated because 25 bucks didnt just shoot outof the computer screen!! Lol.
Luckly my dad never throws away anything. So after scanning 18 hard drives ( it is a whole learning exp.)i have recovered 13 or so private kets and wallet ids. And still looking.
So obviously i am very slow to do anything and am stuck on this sweeping thing. The files may have had a list of words. I dont recall. They were not encrypted though. So are the priv. keys considered a masterkey? The only options for a standard wallet is seed or master key. One of the files did say rootsomethingor another. None were wallet.dat. i hid one file in a music folder. So where do i go from here? Also,what is xprv yprv and zprv? And what is the purpose of the console for sweeping if any at all? I am not in tye console.
Anybody have any clue how to guide me on this?

How can a reciever verify that transaction data was not altered by 3rd party?

My scenario:

My web server:
– Generates private and public, and a wallet address from the public key for a user website account
– Server can not connect to the outside (Can not connect to the Bitcoin network)
– Has a page that allows anyone to send money to the user account wallet address

What I need to do:
– The server needs to know when bitcoins were sent to the wallet address, and how many total bitcoins are at the wallet address

Because web server can not access outside internet, I am using Javascript on the browser side to get the wallet address info by getting https://api.blockcypher.com/v1/btc/test3/addrs/miedePxMt4SDQHjWJyfhbCWvXcm33vzDa1/full and/or https://api.blockcypher.com/v1/btc/test3/txs/681b16b4de3676a5865a85e0bba3097afcc195d928f3167e4d5591c388c1e474?includeHex=true … and sending that data to my webserver using a Ajax call to check for the received bitcoins.

Note: I have sent testnet bitcoins to that wallet.

Everything works except 1 problem: The browser user can easily change the bitcoin amounts and trick the web server into thinking more bitcoin were sent.

My question is: What methods can I use on the webserver to verify that the transaction data was not changed by the browser user. The web server has the pub/priv key of the receiving wallet. The webserver has the “bx” libbitcoin-explorer program available and I could potentially install other software.

Can I use the cammands in this diagram at all? https://github.com/libbitcoin/libbitcoin-explorer/wiki/Transaction-Commands

Error while syncing with the blockchain on my Raspberry Pi

So I already have the node set up on my raspberry pi. This night the transfer of the Blockchain from my laptop to the raspi’s hard disk finished. Now I am waiting for the blocks to match the headers

"blocks": 162064, "headers": 613982

The thing is that when I do bitcoin-cli getblockchaininfo to check if it is already complete, I get this error:

error: Could not connect to the server
Make sure the bitcoind server is running and that you are connecting to the correct RPC port.

I check if bitcoind is running with systemctl status bitcoind.service and this shows up:

● bitcoind.service - Bitcoin daemon

Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/bitcoind.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)

Active: activating (auto-restart) (Result: exit-code) since Wed 2020-01-22 11:59:12 CET; 15s ago

Process: 811 ExecStartPre=/bin/sh -c sleep 30 (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)

Process: 814 ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/bitcoind -daemon -conf=/home/bitcoin/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf -pid=/home/bitcoin/.bitcoin/bitcoind.pid (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)

Main PID: 815 (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)

So I try to restart the bitcoin daemon with sudo systemctl stop bitcoind and sudo systemctl start bitcoind. And when I check its status it shows the following (which looks good):

bitcoind.service - Bitcoin daemon

Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/bitcoind.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)

Active: active (running) since Wed 2020-01-22 12:01:01 CET; 5s ago

Process: 862 ExecStartPre=/bin/sh -c sleep 30 (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)

Process: 864 ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/bitcoind -daemon -conf=/home/bitcoin/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf -pid=/home/bitcoin/.bitcoin/bitcoind.pid (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)

Main PID: 865 (bitcoind)

Tasks: 12 (limit: 2200)

Memory: 111.0M

CGroup: /system.slice/bitcoind.service

└─865 /usr/local/bin/bitcoind -daemon -conf=/home/bitcoin/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf -pid=/home/bitcoin/.bitcoin/bitcoind.pid

And when I do bitcoin-cli getblockchaininfo again, it doesn’t show me an error, but the number of blocks synchronized is lower than before. And a few minutes later, when I go check again it all repeats itself.

What am I supposed to do here?


Withdraw and deposit in cryptocurrency exchange website

In an exchange website we just book trades in our database and just when user want to withdraw his BTC balance we make a real transaction in bitcoin network for him. Consider a scenario that a user deposits 2 BTC and after some trades he now owns 5 BTC. His public address balance is 2 BTC and server must send 5 BTC to user’s address. So server need to do more than one transaction: 2 BTC from his own deposit address and the rest 3 BTC from another address that server manages. In this scenario we must pay fee for at least 2 transaction. We usually in withdrawal take fee just for one transaction from user. The problem is now server must pay the other fees?
What is the solution for this problem?

In BTC scenario I want to use blockchain.com’s wallet app api. As I understood, we can have lots of publuic address corresponding to one extended public key of wallet. So we assign each user to a different public address in time of deposit. In time of withdraw, we can pay from blockchain’s wallet to withdraw address of user. Am I right about this approach?
I can generate new address of blockchain wallet with “http://localhost:3000/merchant/$guid/new_address” url. But this url just generte BTC address. How an I generate new address for ethereum and bitcoin cash in block chain.com api?

Is it possible to use such this solution for ethereum, litecoin and …

If not, how can I manage the problem of many users deposits and withdraw in an exchange site?

Excuse me for number of questions

Thank you in advance

Access coins stored at Cryptobridge?

I have just discovered, albeit far too late, that Cryptobridge has closed.

Now, there is a lot to say about this particularly dodgy move, but I won’t and I’ll keep this simple:

How can I access the coins stored in the Cryptobridge wallet?

I saved the .bin file and can access my Bitshares account via OpenLedger, but the only coin listed is Bitshares. Bitcoin is just one of the coins that are/were stored in that wallet.

I’ve searched around and a few forums say it’s possible by logging in to another exchange. Well, that’s what I’ve done and that clearly didn’t work.

I am hoping that this simple question has a simple answer, even if that answer is: “You can’t.”
