Accessing WIF Compressed Private Key to retrieve MAID

Hi All,

Not sure if this is the appropriate place to pose my question, but basically;

I created a bitcoin address using bitaddress,

I have sent my MAIDSAFE coins from the exchange to my public key, via omniwallet I can see that the maidsafe has arrived at the correct address. However, when I try to access my private key, it is not possible. It is pass phrase protected. Is there a place I can access my private key by inputting the password passprase? When I try to use the WIF key it sais it is not recognized. My only concern now is that I wrote down the password incorrectly, but I am sure the Passphrase is correct.

If you created your bitcoin address using Bitaddress you would have been given a public key and private key. Surely all you should need to do is import your private key to an omniwallet address you already have access to and that’s it?

If you use copy/paste as a method for the password, make sure that there are no hidden space in the end or beginning of the phrase.

bitaddress does not generate seed words.

Download bitaddress from github and check your key from Wallet Details locally
