Migration from Multibit HD to Electrum

Use breadwallet on mobile or you have to manually or otherwise extract the private keys from your MultiBit HD wallet/seed… 


Automated (but technical) method requiring use of python scripts: https://github.com/HardCorePawn/multibit_recovery


Manual method:
– Create offline version of https://iancoleman.github.io/bip39/– Put in your MultiBit HD seed
– Set Derivation Path -> BIP32
– Set Client = “MultiBit HD”
– Copy all the address/private keys (click show more until you are sure you have more than all the addresses you ever used)
– Set Client = “Custom” -> Set Derivation Path = m/0’/1
– Copy all the change addresses/private keys (click show more until you are sure you have more than all the addresses you ever used)

Once you have all your private keys:
– In Electrum -> New/Restore -> Standard Wallet -> Create a new seed
– Once wallet is created, “Wallet -> Private Keys -> Sweep”
– Paste in all the private keys you got from automated or manual method
You should now have all your coins in an Electrum HD Wallet.
