So a couple months ago I wanted to try my hand at setting up a stake pool…long story short I had a hard time with it and decided to put that on pause and spend some time studying up.
I am trying to see if there is a way to retrieve the ADA I sent to my node. I backed up all the “pool-keys” files onto a external hard drive before shutting down the server. Is here a way to get that ADA back in my Daedalus wallet without resetting up a node?
Hopefully you managed you retrieve your funds but I’ll still message in the event someone else is in the same situation as you.
If you created your wallet without using the mnemonic phrase option, you wont be able to import your wallet in Daedalus. With your mnemonic phrase you can generate your keys, but with the keys, you can’t generate the mnemonic phrase.
I still have not, but I also haven’t tried yet. The majority of my problem is I dove into the whole operating a stake node project way to fast. Though there were very good guides out there (good enough for me to at least get 2 nodes up and send some ADA), I just don’t have enough experience or fundamental knowledge.
I would like some help if possible. I am about to embark on setting up a stake pool node again. I am going to start from scratch, but If I am able to get that ADA I have stored in my old offline node…or even reuse my “pool-keys” files…that would be great.
