I own a wallet(blockchain) in which i have't logged in from last 1.5 years, I have 18 phrases which is if i understand correctly is part of legacy blockchain wallet. The problem is that somehow i am unable to receive any emails from "blockchain.info" to authorize my login attempt, I have talked to the support team but they are unable to help.


Can someone guide me a way which i can use to regain access to the funds ? My phrases are right as i verified them on the blockchain legacy recovery page which give me my wallet id and password.

Can someone guide me as to how can i recover my funds from the 18 phrases other than using blockchain wallet recovery method.

I'm not sure if that would work, but try putting your 18 word seed in iancoleman.io/bip39 (or clone the repo and run offline for better security: https://github.com/iancoleman/bip39), choosing BIP32 and selecting "blockchain.in fo" in the "Derivation Path" section. Then scroll down and see if your addresses are shown (check them in a blockchain explorer to see if there is any balance/transaction history).

I think no one success on recovering their wallet using http://iancoleman.io/bip39 tool the only tool that I know to recover your wallet is by using the blockchain legacy wallet recovery that you can find here https://login.blockchain.com/wallet/forgot-password?guid=

If you didn't receive the login ID and password the other way to recover the wallet if you have a backup aes.json file if you have this backup you can recover them by importing it here https://login.blockchain.com/wallet/import-wallet

If none of them works your wallet is gone forever.

How about, try to tell the blockchain support if they have access to your old account and check the email and maybe you are using a different email.

To recover the login ID and password, which OP just said he has. That's not the issue. The issue is that he doesn't receive any login authorization email.

I have talked to the support team but they are unable to help.

According to [overview] Recover Bitcoin from any old storage format , the only wallet which uses 18 words mnemonic is Armory.
but that is not "mnemonic" or as OP puts it "18 phrases". they are more like 72 random characters that are split into groups of 4 (18x4). it is most probably blockchain.info recovery phrase since they have gone through a range of lengths for their recovery phrase.
if that didn't work, it could be a Coinomi seed as they at some point let users select the number of words they wanted in their seed phrase and 18 was one of the choices

As I understand you used https://login.blockchain.com/wallet/forgot-password, but you didn't receive an e-mail.

Maybe are you checking the wrong e-mail address?
And also check the spam folder if there is one.

You wrote you have wallet id, so you can try to test your e-mail address.
https://login.blockchain.com/#/reset-2fa
If there a message "email does not match..." then you should check another possible e-mail addresses.

If the address is correct, can there be an opportunity to contact the e-mail provider in case it blocks messages from the domain? Or you can register new account on the blockchain.com with that e-mail and test it to localise the problem.

I have tried signing up with the new wallet on my email, It doesn't work and i don't receive an email for new wallet sign up. I have talked to the yahoo customer support for months and they say that they are not blocking anything. The email is same because when i create a support ticket on my wallet id i receive emails from blockchain.com on my email id saying that your support ticket has been created.

I have recently taken a step where i have entered a new email id to gain access to the wallet using blockchain.com and it says that "if the owner does not reject the authorization (which obviously i can not i will gain access to the wallet on a new email id) but i am quite sceptic about this method. I haad read forums to understand that if you have your phrases with you you can always recover your funds. Is this saying wrong in my case ?

I have everything, I have my correct wallet id, My correct password, My btc address, My recovery 18 words phrases associated with my btc address (This means that i have 18 different words & total characters for it are 142 with spaces between words and 125 without spsaces). The onnly problem is that i am able to receive my authorization email to verify the wallet from "[email protected]". Is there somewaay to retrieve my wallet ?

not exactly.
usually when people talk about these "phrases" they are referring to mnemonic that are used according to a standard called BIP39. but the problem is that not all wallets stick to that standard and in early years (like old versions of blockchain.info wallet) this standard wasn't around or was not popular so they used different techniques.
this means as long as you have the "phrase" and have access to the same wallet, you should be able to recover your funds. if you don't have access to the wallet or if the wallet is bad at keeping backward compatibility, then you have to go through the source code of that wallet to figure out how they used to go from the phrase to a private key. i don't think anybody knows this about early versions of blockchain.info wallets!

so your only option is to contact their support and use the links that were posted to try and recover your wallet.

you have the old recovery phrase of legacy blockchain wallet for recovering forgotten password
that is not the same as the new 12 words backup phrase, which you get when the wallet is upgraded

I'm afraid you are in the same situation as the guy in thread blockchain.info wallet from 2013 not working
he also has similar login problem on one of his accounts but with no email or 2fa
since you registered with an email address, there's no reason blockchain staff can't help you
I think they should be able to somehow turn off or push email for login confirmation

Many of the old accounts have been closed or have not been added when the wallet update the interface so you will not be able to access your wallet using your old ID and password.
I remember that I did it with Blockchain.info HD wallet. They sent a message with ID after selecting the 12-word recovery option.
What happens after you enter the words on ---> https://login.blockchain.com/wallet/forgot-password? You should get a new account associated with those words (18 words.)

check your words here ---> https://github.com/bitcoin/bips/blob/master/bip-0039/english.txt

So half the replies in this thread are by people like this who haven't understood what the OP's problem is. He doesn't have an HD wallet. He has an old random unconnected private keys bc.i wallet and the recovery phrase is just used to recover the password. It is not the seed to the whole wallet.

OP's problem is simply that he can't receive emails by blockchain.info. It's not really a bitcoin problem it's an email hosting problem. I don't think we can help him here.

Your only way to get into the wallet is to "convince" someone at blockchain support to "reset" your confirmation mail.

They used to do this sometimes if you knew some other data like when then wallet was created, amount sent and/or IP used to login
