Trying to complete the import of BTC from a BIP38 paper wallet into an Electrum wallet
About an hour ago I opened Electum 3.3.4, created a new wallet, set a password and saved a copy of the new wallet on a USB stick.
Then I clicked the Electum menu options for WALLET, PRIVATE KEYS, IMPORT and pasted the decrypted private key for the BIP38 Paper Wallet into the box that opened and clicked NEXT.
Nothing happened: The block explorer shows that the BTC credit is still in the paper folder and not in the Electrum wallet. I closed and restarted Electrum, but the same thing.
When I decrypted the BIP38 paper wallet to get its private key, I used bitaddress.org offline, which gave me a table with a number of options for the decrypted private key.
The specific key I selected, copied and pasted into Electrum was the one under the heading "WIF compressed format 52 character base 58 starting with & # 39; K & # 39; or & # 39; L & # 39;".
Would that be what needs to be corrected?
A second thing is that when I click on the big green button on the Electrum server (I have no idea what it's called ha), the overview shows "Status" as connected to 10 nodes. The server is noveltybobble.coinjoined.com and the blockchain is 565750. When I first checked this when importing the BIP38 paper wallet, it was set to automatic, not to a specific server
I read that Electrum servers can be a problem processing transactions and I think this could possibly be a problem here?
Any suggestions or help would be appreciated
