Restoring Your CLI Wallet from Keys¶
If you have a Mnemonic Seed Phrase, restoring your wallet from it would probably be a good option. Otherwise, you can restore your wallet from private keys. You will need to have the following keys to proceed:
- Wallet public address
- Spend Key
- View Key
Step 1: Download and unzip CLI wallet¶
- Download the latest release of wallet CLI software for your desired operating system: https://github.com/loki-project/loki/releases
Step 2: Run wallet in restore mode¶
Run wallet with
./loki-wallet-cli --generate-from-keys [New Wallet Name]
[New Wallet Name] is a new wallet name. You can enter any name here, use something rememberable and meaningful.
Step 3: Enter wallet address, view and spend keys¶
On the next step, specify all 3 wallet keys, one by one:
- Enter Standard address and press [Enter]
- Enter Secret spend key and press [Enter]
- Enter Secret view key and press [Enter]
Step 4: Enter wallet password¶
You will be prompted for a password. Enter a new password that follows the Password Policy and press [Enter].
Confirm password and press [Enter].
Step 5: Specify a blockchain height¶
If you know the block height at which wallet was created or a first transaction was made, you can enter it here. Specifying a blockchain height will help to scan the wallet faster.
If you don't know a specific blockchain height, press [Enter] for scanning from block height 0.
Step 6: Wait for the refresh process to finish¶
For refresh process to start, you need to have your daemon running. Another option would be to use a remote node. For that, use the following command, replacing
./loki-wallet-cli --daemon-address <host>:<port>
Once refresh is done, you can use your full functioning restored wallet. Your public wallet address will remain the same.
