Wallet Finder (findwallet)

Crawl through your files and find any bitcoin core wallet files.

Wallet Finder scrapes through your specified paths to find hex data corresponding to a bitcoin core wallet. Unless the file is compressed, or chunked, it will always find it regardless of bitcoin core version, file extension, or any non-destructive data modification. Starting v2.0, It can also extract private keys from corrupt wallets.


npm install findwallet -g

Usage example

Zee's Wallet Finder.

findwallet -i [inputPath/inputFile] -o [outputFile]

 -i     : Required. Specify which path(s) to scan directly or through a newline separated file.
 -o     : Specify optional output file where to store wallet paths if any exist.
 -h     : Displays this message.

Tip : paths.txt is an example of an inputFile.


This project uses fast-glob, and yargs for cli functionality. For extraction of private keys, bs58 and wif dependencies have been added. I may push a version in the future to remove the later dependencies and implement Base58 encoding locally.

If my project helped you recover something, I'd appreciate a tip!
