Windows / Linux Guide to using Trezor with Bitcoin Core (HWI)

This is a guide to using your Trezor with Bitcoin Core. It may seem like more trouble than it's worth but many applications use Bitcoin Core as a wallet such as LND, EPS, and JoinMarket. Learning how to integrate your Trezor into a Bitcoin Core install is rather useful in many unexpected ways. I did this all through the QT interfaces, but it's simple to script. There is a much simpler guide available from the HWI github, and the smallest Linux TLDR is here
Unfortunately, I don't have access to a Coldcard or Ledger. I'm not sure how the setpin or -stdinpass parameters are handled on that HW.

( A ) Install TrezorCTL, HWI, and build GUI

You only need to set the wallet up once, but may repeat to upgrade

( A.I ) Download extract and install HWI

  1. Download and isntall Python
  2. Download https://github.com/bitcoin-core/HWI/archive/1.1.2.zip
  3. Extract it to a working folder (assumes C:\User\Reddit\src\HWI)

  12. Copy to pywin copy libusb-1.0.dll .venv\Lib\site-packages\pywin32_system32\

( A.II ) Build the QT UI files

  1. Download and install MSYS2
  2. Launch a mingw64.exe shell
  3. CD to working folder cd "C:\User\Reddit\src\HWI"
  4. Enter venv source .venv/Scripts/activate 1
  5. Run UI build bash contrib/generate-ui.sh

( B ) Create a Trezor wallet in Bitcoin Core (testnet)

You only need to set the wallet up once, no private key data is stored, only xpub data

( B.I ) Retrieve keypool from HWI-QT

  1. Launch hwi-qt.exe --testnet (assuming testnet)
  2. Click Set passphrase (if needed) to cache your passphrase then click Refresh
  3. Select you trezor from the list then click Set Pin (if needed)
  4. Ensure your Trezor in the dropdown has a fingerprint
  5. Select Change keypool options and choose P2WPKH
  6. Copy all the text from the Keypool textbox

( B.II ) Create the wallet in Bitcoin QT

  1. Launch Bitcoin Core (testnet) (non-pruned) 2
  2. Select Console from the Window menu
  3. Create a wallet createwallet "hwi" true
  4. Ensure that hwi is selected in the console wallet dropdown
  5. Verify walletname using the getwalletinfo command
  6. Import keypool importmulti '' (note ' caging)
  7. Rescan if TXNs are missing rescanblockchain 3

( C.I ) Grab Tesnet coins

  1. Select the Receive tab in Bitcoin Core (testnet)
  2. Ensure that the Wallet dropdown has hwi selected
  3. Select Create new receiving address and copy address
  4. Google "bitcoin testnet faucet" and visit a few sites
  5. Answer captcha and input your addressed copied from C.I.3

( D ) Spending funds with HWI

This is how you can spend funds in your Trezor using Bitcoin Core (testnet)

( D.I ) Create an unsigned PSBT

  1. Select the Send tab in Bitcoin Core (testnet)
  2. Ensure that the Wallet dropdown has hwi selected
  3. Verify your balance in Watch-only balance
  4. Rescan if balance is wrong (see B.II.7) 3
  5. Craft your TXN as usual, then click Create Unsigned
  6. Copy the PSBT to your clipboard when prompted

( D.II ) Sign your PSBT

  1. In HWI-QT click Sign PSBT
  2. Paste what you copied in D.I.6 in PSBT to Sign field
  3. Click Sign PSBT
  4. Copy the text for PSBT Result

( D.III ) Broadcast your TXN

  1. Select the Console window in Bitcoin Core (testnet)
  2. Ensure that the Wallet dropdown has hwi selected
  3. Finalize PSBT: finalizepsbt
  4. Copy the signed TXN hex from the hex field returned
  5. Broadcast TXN: sendrawtransaction

Final Thoughts

I did this all through the GUI interfaces for the benefit of the Windows users. Windows console is fine, but the quote escaping in windows console is nightmarish. Powershell would be good, but that throws this on a whole another level for most Windows folks.
There is also the need to use HWI-QT due to a bug in blank passphrases on the commandline. You can work around it by toggling passphrase off or on, but again, it's more than I wanted to spell out.
Footnotes:
  • 1. - Later version of python put the activate script under 'bin' instead of 'Script'
  • 2. - You can run pruned, but you need to have a fresh wallet
  • 3. - Rescan is automatic on 'importmulti' but I was pruned so it was wierd

wallet.dat in Bitcoin Core 0.20 ver not found in AppData Windows 10

Hi everyone,
In the latest version of Bitcoin Core ver. 0.20 there seems to be no Bitcoin folder in the C:\Users\ABC\AppData\Roaming - hence wallet.dat is not stored in there.

Does anyone have experience with this and knows where it's now stored please?
I would appreciate your sharing and thanks a lot.

Bitcoin Core not closing (Do not shut down the computer until this window closes)

I tried to update my bitcoin.conf file yesterday and then tried to close bitcoin core and open it so that the changes would apply. (not sure if that was necessary or not.) Anyways I got the message "Do not shut down the computer until this window closes" and left it over night but it never closed. I read it might be related to rpc calls from lnd so I closed that and left it for another few hours and it still has not closed. I really don't want to have to re-sync the full chain again does anyone have any advice for me?

Electrum Personal Server not compatible with Lightning Lnd

Hi All,

I'm not certain if this is the right place for this type of post! Please let me know if there is somewhere more suitable if not.

I have recently downloaded and got running Bitcoin Core (Windows machine) as a full node, incoming and outgoing connections and verified the whole block chain.
In addition to setting up Core, I downloaded and installed Electrum Wallet and used Chris Belchers guide on Github to turn it into a personal server, everything running via my own node.
My next intention was to download and install Lightning Labs Ln daemon andall was going well until I tried to set up my lightning wallet.
It seems that the wallet feature in Bitcoin Core needs to be switched OFF for you to create a Lightning Wallet for Lnd BUT if I switch off the wallet feature in Bitcoin Core the electrum server feature no longer works as the Core Wallet is used to "Watch" the electrum wallet.
Is there a way around this? Can I have Lightning up and running with a separate Ln wallet whilst still using electrum as a personal server?

If not, what have people found as a good setup on Windows for apps sitting on top of bitcoin core?
I was thinking something along the lines of Core with Samourai personal server and Lightning or would that have the same issue as above?
Maybe Core and Lnd with Zap as a front end? Could you run a Samourai server with that enabling access to both samourai wallet and your Ln wallet via Zap?

Any input/ idea appreciated!

Bitcoin core configuration in Windows

I've installed Bitcoin Core on Windows with the installer. I don't know how to increase the number of connections. Currently, it's always 8.
Several sources on the internet claim that custom configuration belong to a bitcoin.conf in the AppData/Bitcoin directory. But that doesn't work for me. I tried. In fact, I found out that the configuration including the datadir is currently contained in the registry. Not a single source I could found tells me that the registry contains these config values, so I'm kinda bummed out by this.
In any case, does that mean that I have to add a config value in the registry? And if so, how? The config names are different, namely, the registry config names are in camel case, while the names in bitcoin.conf are like "maxconnections=150". Help!
Edit: I consider the possibility that using the bitcoin.conf actually works and I made a mistake.
Edit2: Only 8 outgoing connections are possible (without addnode), so I opened the firewall as suggested.
Edit3: I finally get incoming connections. It's still slow but I'm optimistic that the speed will increase. It almost feels like synching an Ethereum node ffs.
Edit4: After having had 16 peers at some point yesterday, I'm back to 8 peers and no incoming connections. Speed is 1.3% per hour.
Edit5: I'm under the impression that I simply underestimated the size of the blockchain. I'm used to download huge files within minutes but 200gb is certainly something else. My bandwidth doesn't seem to be used to its full extent but it spikes up to the maximum throughput from time to time, so I guess this is the limiting factor after all. And some people want even larger blocks? F*** that.

A look back at my BTC TX fees for the last 3+ months.

I've had a few stuck BTC transactions as I've always tried to minimize my fees. Before this week I had not paid for TX acceleration in any way (though one good Samaritan miner saved me once before I tried child pays for parent).
The tx below all were sent using the bitcoin core windows client and custom fee ratios used. Newest TX on top.
224 bytes fee: 0.00010062 BTC (45 per byte) 17,002.07 exchange rate - fee ~$1.71 (1 hour, used accelerator, this child tx pays for parent) 257 bytes fee: 0.00010836 BTC (42 per byte) 17,002.07 exchange rate - fee ~$1.84 (12 hours, used accelerator) 258 bytes fee: 0.00001806 BTC (7 per byte) 11,656.51 exchange rate - fee ~$0.21 (7 days, used child pays for parent) 795 bytes fee: 0.00002394 BTC (3 per byte) 8,650.00 exchange rate - fee ~$0.21 (9+ days, used accelerator)
258 bytes fee: 0.00001806 BTC (7 per byte) 6,922.15 exchange rate - fee ~$0.13 (1 hour 48 minutes to confirm) 617 bytes fee: 0.00004326 BTC (7 per byte) 5,222.83 exchange rate - fee ~$0.23 (2+ days to confirm, used accelerator) 257 bytes fee: 0.00010836 BTC (42 per byte) 4,599.10 exchange rate - fee ~$0.50 (4 hours to confirm) 258 bytes fee: 0.00018576 BTC (72 per byte) 4,331.68 exchange rate - fee ~$0.81 (20 minutes to confirm) 257 bytes fee: 0.00010836 BTC (42 per byte) 4,104.02 exchange rate - fee ~$0.44 (2 days to confirm, sent Aug 22)
Now going oldest to newest to see how I thought of this whole thing:
First it's probably important to say I used these txs to fund a debit card so quick tx confirmation wasn't a concern for me.
as you can see in August 2017 I got a tx through at 42 per byte fee but it was sent on a Tuesday night / Wednesday morning (around 11:30pm eastern).
my reaction to that first slow tx was to up the fee, but my next tx was sent on a Friday and basically went in the first block (took less than 20 minutes but I didn't keep track of the exact time).
I then dropped the fee back to 42 per for another Tuesday tx and it went in just under 4 hours. By this point I thought I'd mastered fees. 4 hours sounded good for keeping the fee low and still having the tx complete while I slept or worked.
So I'm watching fees and I've found a free accelerator. I try 7 per on a Thursday and it sits for 2 days. I try the free accelerator and it works almost immediately. 2 days is too long but I figure I've got the free accelerator as a fall back so...
I try 7 per again on a Thursday when the pool was nearly empty (Nov 2nd). Email confirmation comes in 1 hour 48 minutes, first confirm was probably closer to an hour and half. I'm thinking I'd been happy to have it take longer so I think lets drop the fee some more.
I try 3 per on a Sat when the pool seems low and I this is where I screw up with overconfidence, a few hours after I submit the pool starts overflowing by mid week doom and gloom stories about how many hundred thousand txs are pending are all over the internet. I eventually get bailed out by a good Samaritan when I ask for help. During that week I couldn't find an accelerator that would charge me less than $16. My free options had gone away (having a fee below 0.0001 kept me from using viaBTC 's accelerator).
So you'd think I'd learn my lesson. No I go back to the fee sites and try to pick a fee that will just barely confirm. Another Tuesday tx, I just figured it'd sit until the weekend. I would have been happy with anything under 4 days. A week later and after trying several free accelerators it still hadn't confirmed. Today I finally did a child pays for parent tx essentially paying another $1.71 to get that tx unstuck.
I also did one today at 42 per and used the viaBTC accelerator to get it to go on the next hour.
My two most expensive tx both confirmed on Dec 12, 2017. One had fees I valued at $1.84, The other(s) was the child/parent pair that were $1.92 but could have been cheaper if I'd just paid a proper fee the first time.
I still wonder how high fees will go, but I also have to wonder how much of it is a self fulfilling prophecy. How many people are paying something that they could wait hours for confirmation but pay the higher fee to get in the first block they can?
Well, Child pays for parent and accelerator dances aren't my idea of fun in the long term. I can see why the fee spiral starts. Someone complains about a slow tx, they remember it and up the fee the next time, someone else has to compete with the new higher average fee and does the complain about a slow tx / raise the fee the next time response.
sites used to estimate fees in case you want to be a tightwad and skirt the uncompleted tx line:
end result I'll still use these sites but I'd be better off just paying a higher fee and not spending as much time trying to find the minimum I can get away with.

Running Bitcoin Core in Linux Subsystem for Windows?

I haven't use the Linux Subsystem for Windows yet, but I'm thinking about getting it set up to run a LN node. I'm already running the Windows binary for Bitcoin Core, but I'm thinking about switching it to run on the Linux subsystem so I can build it locally.
Anybody have experience with the core client or a LN node on this? Anyone know what the trade-offs would be compared to running a linux virtual machine in VirtualBox or something?

Trying to salvage some coins from 2013. Core (bitcoin-qt.exe v0.8.1-beta on Windows 8.1) is taking weeks to DL the blockchain as expected but keeps crashing now. Can I upgrade to a newer version without losing what I've gotten already (about 75% complete)?

Currently there are 134305 blocks remaining. When I start it up it works pretty smoothly for a while but then slows down. I leave it running while I'm gone but the last several days when I've come back it has crashed and gives me an I/O error, and I have to hit OK then start it back up. It does appear to be further along when I start it back up but not by a whole lot. So this has really slowed my progress. It's reindexed about 75% though, and so I don't want to start over from the beginning.
The drive it is on has ~400gb of free space so that's not the issue. I have 8gb of memory, and the task manager says bitcoin is taking up about 500mb, but it's using 60-85% of my cpu at a time.
If I download a newer version of core, I can just copy/paste the old wallet.dat file, right? But wouldn't it have to start downloading the entire blockchain again from the beginning? If so, is there any quicker method?
While typing this, it crashed twice. It only runs for about 10 minutes.
The version I have doesn't have any settings I can change. I read that there's a db size limit you can change in later versions that could help. This one does have a "debug window" with a command line console but I don't really know what to do with it. Here is a list of available commands:

Dear Bitcoin CORE devs the Windows client is a mess.

I would firstly like to apologise for ranting, I appreciate the work you are doing and have had little to no complaints with it priorly, but the situation seems quite dire. I suspect most if not all of you are running linux and little attention being paid on the windows client. With ~2% of desktop computers in the world running linux this is hardly optimal. I have been attempting to get a fresh installation of Bitcoin core to open and load the blockchain for three weeks now, the closest I have gotten is ~40 weeks behind. I am not a new user, I have been running a full node since late 2011, mined for three glorious years, and run a bitcoin e-commerce for nearly as long. Once I get core to finally open I will be transferring my coins out and swapping to a more lightweight client, because I cannot be bothered anymore. I'll return to running a full node once/if someone manages to convince me that theres a working build available.
Technical info: Running Windows 7 with the latest updates, Bitcoin Core 0.11.0 (64-bit) (this was the latest stable build when I began) on Intel i7-2600K at stock clocks, with 8Gb of ram.
The issues I have encountered thus far are:
Crashes on startup, pretty random and hard to describe, for example yesterday the fift attempt to start succeeded. There propably should be a "send crash report" button to hit when windows notifies me that bitcoin core has crashed.
Failures to shutdown neatly when windows restarts the computer upon installing updates. I get to start all over with the blockchain indexing. Surely there must be a way to get it to shut down neatly when Windows reboots ?
Losing all connections to the network, without having any issues with my internet connection. Had an especially hard time getting the program to restart after closing it on this instance.
Other info: I have 8 connections to the network, ample bandwith and haddrive space, ram usage is never above 70%.
Thank you for your time.
