How to decrypt BIP38 encrypted private key?
« on: March 13, 2018, 11:58:57 PM »

I had my LTC in paper wallet during the fork of litecoin cash.  The private key is BIP38 encrypted.
I have tried claiming my litecoin cash in the litecoin cash wallet by importing my private  key, but it pops up an error message stating "This doesn't appear to be a Litecoin/LitecoinCash private key."
I assume this is because I need to decrypt the private key before trying to claim in the litecoincash wallet, so how do I do this?
I moved the LTC out of my paper wallet using Coin wallet app.

If you have a regular paper wallet that displays the unencrypted WIF key, you can duplicate it and print out a new BIP38-protected version of the same wallet in just a few steps:Launch The Generator, preferably using your own copy. You may skip the random mouse movement step since you are not generating any new keys.
  • Click on the [size=inherit]Validate[/size] tab, and either type in your private key, or scan its QR code. (Firefox works best for camera scanning.) Click the validate button.
  • Click [size=inherit]Use these details to print a paper wallet[/size]
  • Click the checkbox for [size=inherit]BIP38 Encrypt?[/size], supply your passphrase, and click [size=inherit]Turn on BIP38 encryption[/size].
  • Print the front side of your wallet, flip the page over, print the backside of your wallet, and you're done!
  • [size=inherit]Important:[/size] Don't discard your old unencrypted paper wallet until you've used the [size=inherit]Verify[/size] tab to successfully decrypt your new BIP38 encrypted wallet. -
