Error in Electrum Wallet

Recommended Posts

Hi guys
I've created a paper wallet and sent it some NAVs.
Then I imported the key (funnily it was the public key I had to import) into the Electrum wallet.
Now I've tried to send some of the coins to some other address but receive following error message:

Why is that and how can I fix it?

Thanks in advance

Hi xVicious,

Believe I started helping you out on the Discord channel, but wanted to pass the information along here in case others find it helpful.

The paper wallet generates a private key which is what gives you access to the funds sent to the paper wallet's public address.  The electrum wallet uses a seed phrase in lieu of the private key.  Neither of these options would give  you access by simply providing the public key.... if this was the case, all coins would be free for all.

I am going to assume you uncovered a bug in electrum, the error you got is most likely just saying that you don't actually have any funds to send out.  We are all anxiously awaiting the NAvPay release which will completely replace this Electrum version.

To fix this scenario, you will need to download and install the latest Core version of the wallet and then import your paper wallet's private key. File -> import private key.

 

Thanks,

Bocyaj.
