bitwalletrecover.py - recover compressed private keys from your bitcoin/litecoin/darkcoin wallet. Requires python3, pycoin (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/pycoin), and base58 (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/base58).
## bitwalletrecover.py - recover private keys from your darkcoin wallet
## (this version was not tested with bitcoin/litecoin).
## Requires python3, pycoin (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/pycoin),
## and base58 (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/base58).
##
## Starting with Python 3.4, pip is included by default with the Python binary
## installers. To install pip for older versions 3.x:
##
## sudo apt-get install python3-setuptools
## sudo easy_install3 pip
##
## Install libs:
##
## sudo pip install pycoin
## sudo pip install base58
##
## Donations are welcome :)
