Hey, I made an MNC paper wallet (M7uX9bX4AUCuYwmzHGZq6EkmVkbu1fXVSg) 2 months ago, it use to be visible but now I cannot locate it and have no idea what to do/ how to recover my funds. Any help would be much appreciated.

This was the old link: http://blockexplorer...q6EkmVkbu1fXVSg

There should be exactly 3000 MNC on that wallet.

You need the private key for the wallet to recover the coins. Having an address alone is meaningless.

I have the private key as well, I just cannot locate my wallet on the blockchain and I don't really know how to import it into the QT. I'm not sure what I need to type in the console, I tried using the help and typing the imortpriv key but it comes up with code errors like -4, -5 and I have no clue what they mean.

I sent a coin to it, you should be able to see it now on the blockchain http://mnc.cryptoexp...q6EkmVkbu1fXVSg

The blockchain site you used before also is down and this one is its replacment

Problem resolved , thanks L&S and I had help from some others on mcxNOW :)

 

future reference for newbs: Make sure QT up to date, unencrypted wallet, blockchain up to date, wallet present on blockchain explorer, scan QR code and send to email, go to console and type importprivkey yourprivatekeyherewefikwekfkekke accountname. check balance :P

Don't forget to unlock the wallet first if you have it password protected. You do that from the console using the command "walletpassphrase <your_password> <number_of_seconds_to_unlock>". Example "walletpassphrase s3cret 30".
