Title: How to decrypt BIP38 encrypted private key?
Post by: BonziBlue 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.
