I went to ATM and purchased 200.00 in Bitcoins. Luckily I scanned the receipt because I quickly loss control of it. Lost I don't know! I finally figured out how I could scan the QR code into my wallet when I do my wallet tells me it "cannot recognize input" it shows this amount of Bitcoins {0.35221809} which appears to be correct. Please HELP!!!!!!!!

    Hi, have you try to put directly the private key of your paper into your wallet without using the QR code?

    In any case, just be quiet! logically you haven't "lost your found" if you have used a trusted ATM and if you had concerved private your paper wallet....

    What form have it? two QR code with a key below each. If yes, one is a public key, the other the private key (QR and the key below are identical information) Your fund are hold by the private key!!! In your wallet you may have in the setting, import private key option. You just have to enter the key (be imeticulous and well respect the breakage of your key (lowercase uppercase). Normally you can't have problem... You can found information here link

    Give us info on your wallet (mycellium, jaxx, bread....) and be careful, we can find fake/ scam wallet on your app store!!!!

    Hi,

    Listen. If you got a paper with a "Private Key" and a "Public Key", than you cannot loose that "Private Key". If you have it, then you have your money.

    Now, when you want to spend it you will need a wallet. If you are new to Bitcoin it would be wise not to use a wallet that asks you to type in the unspent transactions in order to make a transaction.

    I'd suggest you keep that receipt safe for now and try to understand a bit better how a wallet work. Create an account for you on some online wallets (xapo.com, blockchain.info, coinbase.com) and explore them. When you get a little more secure, you will know how to spend the bitcoins in your address.

    If you keep your private key safe, your money is safe. Do not type it or upload it to any site unless you are spending it.
