I am using a token that is the approximate length of my password for an old forgotten blockchain wallet from 2015. It has .48btc currently sitting there. I havent been able to guess it yet which is very surprising to me frankly…and concerning. I read some about these early blockchain wallets and on btcrecover install guide says the following:
Important Note Some older [blockchain.com](https://blockchain.com) wallets (2014-2015 era at least, perhaps more) have a bug where some private keys were incorrectly encoded and saved to the wallet file… (Basically if the hex encoded private key included any leading zeroes, these were left off, leading to private keys that are less than 32 bytes… The current [blockchain.com](https://blockchain.com) simply rejects these as invalid and assumes an incorrect password…) The symptoms of this are that your wallet may have correctly worked until about 2015/2016, BTCRecover will correctly match the wallet passwords (main password and/or second passwords) yet you will be unable to log in with your wallet at [blockchain.com](https://blockchain.com) (Perhaps being prompted for a second password at login time, not just when sending funds) nor import old backups of your wallet file in to the platform. Blockchain support will simply dismiss your concerns and insist that you have the wrong password… (And given they are a non-custodial platform, don’t actually have any visibility in to your specific wallet file file to be able to debug it…) The solution is to dump the private keys from these wallet files (or keys) and to import them in to something like Electrum.”
This has me shitting….Wtf who can I turn to for help if this is the case?
