error message, "error when calling/wallet/unlock:provided encryption key is incorrect."



  • I'am having no luck unlocking my sia wallet. I installed it when it was a older version. I remember making a note that the seed and password were the same.

    I have tried to enter the seed words with spaces between words and without spaces with no luck?

    Any words of wisdom will be greatly appreciated!



  • Hello, I have this same issue, and to be honest am on my last limb with this!
    I wrote down seed (which is same as password) perfectly, checked it thrice, and now when i enter, OR copy paste it it shows the same error code.
    I've tried with spaces, without spaces..Nothing works, and im feeling quite frustrated.
    thankfully I have yet to move my sia coin to the wallet, so is there a way to Delete wallet and make new one, or what?

    Ps- using a macbook

    Try recovering your wallet from seed, go to the wallet page and press the recover from seed button.

  • Like I said, I have tried everything.



  • I tried to enter the password same as the seed entered with a single space between words...After my wallet was synced.... And it worked... My wallet was unlocked...

    What OS are you on? Quit Sia-UI completely and locate the wallet.db file, make a backup of it and delete the wallet.db, relaunch sia-ui and go to the terminal of sia-ui and type wallet init-seed. Your password will be your seed after you recovered your wallet.

    Path to wallet.db:

    • GNU/Linux based $HOME/.config/Sia-UI/sia/wallet
    • Microsoft Windows %APPDATA%\Sia-UI\sia\wallet
    • Mac OS X $HOME/Library/Application Support/Sia-UI/sia/wallet
