How do I import an unencrypted (BTC and BCH) private key into the Bitcoin.com wallet app on Android? I can't find any way to import or swipe a simple private key and would prefer to use the Bitcoin.com wallet instead of using Mycelium that has that functionality. Is lacking this feature intentional?
I'd prefer to use the Bitcoin.com wallet app for Android to import an unencrypted private key because I trust the Bitcoin.com wallet team more than I trust the Mycelium team. But it seems that I'd be forced to keep using the Mycelium app because it has a private key import function and the Bitcoin.com wallet app is missing such a function. Why does the Bitcoin.com lack this feature? Is it intentional for some reason? If not, when will it be added? I think this feature should be added as well as a feature to show any unencrypted private key so that a user can copy it with a simple pen and paper and then put the paper in a bank's safety deposit box for example. Mycelium can do both of those things so I see no good reason why the Bitcoin.com wallet app should intentionally lack those features. Please add the "import and export unencrypted single address private key" features to the Bitcoin.com wallet app so that I can stop using the Mycelium wallet and start using the Bitcoin.com wallet app instead. The primary reason that I trust the Mycelium team less nowadays is that they seem to be incompetent because it's been 674 days since 2017-08-01 and they still have not managed to implement support for sending and receiving BCH. I've started to trust the Bitcoin.com wallet the most nowadays because it's become old enough with no loss of funds stories that they appear to have been enough "time tested". I trust the Mycelium wallet the second most and would strongly prefer not to use any other apps or programs for my "import an unencrypted private key" problem. I trust the Bitcoin ABC client too of course but then there's the problem with trusting the desktop OS and all the unisolated programs that are installed by default etc. This was asked before but didn't get any replies: https://www.reddit.com/btc/comments/974ybj/confused_import_a_private_key_to_bitcoincom_wallet/
How can I import an XPRV private key into Bitcoin.com’s Wallet App (iOS)???
It seems the only options to import a wallet are the 12-word seed phrase and a plain text file (not sure what that would be) but I have an XPRV private key, and I understand it’s impossible to turn that into a 12-word seed phrase, only the other way around... Any help? I’ll tip ;)
Can I import Bitcoin Diamond to Binance wallet using private key?
There seems to be no web wallet that support BCD. I am not feeling comfortable in using any of the existing BCD wallets. Providing private key to Binance and importing BCD to Binance wallet is way better option for me.

I am searching for an Android Bitcoin Cash Wallet that can import (or sweep) a private key (WIF) from a Bitcoin Core cold storage paper wallet.
SOLVED. The app "Coinomi" did the trick (not import, but sweep, which is ok for the low network fees...) (btw, also works for BTG) Any recommendations / tips? Actually "import" would be preferred over "sweep", but since Tx Fees are so low with BCH, also "sweep" is acceptable for my use-case. What I mean is entering (or sweeping) my own single private key* (legacy WIF format as we know it from paper wallets**), and NOT entering my own determinsistic 12-word-mnemonic seed. For the following Bitcoin Core wallets I am aware that they support it - but I am looking for a Bitcoin Cash Wallet that can do the same:
Mycelium (can scan private key QR code or enter from clipboard)
Bither (can scan private key QR code or enter it manually in text form)
The following Bitcoin Cash wallets cannot do it:
Coinomi correction: maybe Coinomi CAN sweep a priv key when using the QR icon form the "balance" page - I will try... update: it worked!
Bitcoin.com (probably not -. I am still in the process of generating it, it requires some network for some reason and stalls since more than 5 minutes on my powerful Samsung Galaxy) -> deinstalled again - it sucks.
Oh - and I'd like to enter the private key manually via text, not via QR code scan, if possible (because I only have the private key ("5.....") in text form and don't want to convert it to one of those QR code generator online websites, for obvious reasons).(removed, because bitaddress.org used offline serves this purpose to convert priv key (text) to QR code) PS: If anybody also knows about BTG for the same question, I'd be interested, too, obviously.
Electron Cash is buggy and often doesn't connect, also I don't completely trust its deviation from Electrum. I've tried bitcoin.com wallet as well but they don't make private key import from a paper wallet easy -- do you guys have any trustworthy suggestions?
I accidentally imported a public bitcoin address into the blockchain.com wallet. I didn't realize I was supposed to import the private key. Is there a remedy??
Greetings. Please see above. I know there is a warning on the blockchain.com site that says "Do not import a public bitcoin address. If you do, the address will be imported as watch only and you will not be able to use its funds." I just messed up. What can I do?? Thanks
Confused. Import a private key to Bitcoin.com wallet?
I downloaded the Bitcoin.com wallet and would like to import a private key to my BCH account. The options in these instructions to import include:
a previously exported wallet
a QR code
a 12-word passphrase
None of these options work for me. I just have my private key in a text file, unencrypted. I am just trying to do a dead simple copy-and-paste import of my private key. How do I do it? edit: It doesn't appear the Bitcoin.com wallet supports manual private key imports for some reason. Does anyone have any wallet recommendations? edit 2: Welp. I was able to use the Exodus Wallet pretty easily with Developer \ Assets \ Bitcoin Cash \ Move Funds and now I can access my funds just fine which appears to have done a sweep (Damn BCH works fast!). I'm a bit bummed I couldn't use the "Official" Bitcoin.com wallet though. Feature Request: Would it be possible to add the private key manually in the future?
I tried to create a new Electrum on my Windows 7 using an old address from my old Electrum. I went to create default wallet > Import Bitcoin addresses or private keys Then i typed an address. But i could type the Next button. How do i proceed?
noobQuestion. If i have bitcoin in a deterministic wallet like electrum and i import just one private key to a different computer will all my addresses be accessible that came from the same seed. Without the seed words being transferred to the other computer, just one privkey.
if this questions doesn't make sense i will try again. basically i want my brother to have access to one address i control so i can put money in there and also move it out when i need to. but i don't want all my BTC to pop up in his electrum.
