I know it is a controversial topic, but most of the important Bitcoin wallets now support nested or native segwit addresses. In fact, these seem to be the preferred address types nowadays. Is there a reason why Atomic Wallet still only supports legacy addresses?

''' Your money is not lost. You can import your BTC wallet seed in a BCH wallet and you will have your funds. If you want, I can help you with the process. From there, you can do anything with them. If your purpose was to buy BTC, you can exchange the BCH you bought for BTC. To all other commentators here: How about helping OP recover his funds, instead of making them believe that they have been scammed and that their money are lost?

How to import wallet.dat to bitcoin.com.exe wallet?
i have a wallet.dat file from Bitcoin core before the bch fork in 2017. I looked at the block explorer and I still see a final balance in there for bch. Can I import the wallet.dat directly into Bitcoin.com.exe? I chose import file/txt and supplied the file encryption PW and and it returns an error message stating "could not decrypt file". I know the password is correct because I can go into Bitcoin core console using walletpassphrase "mypw" and it works(returned null) How can I get my bch from an old BTC address? And I guess my next question after that would be how can I get my bsv from that same address. Thanks!

''' So yesterday I was updating apps on my Ledger Nano X (which I very much enjoy) via Bluetooth and my phone when something went wrong. As it was updating the Ethereum app (I know this is a BTC sub but bear with me, the lesson is the same) along with some others, my phone went into sleep mode as I went to a different room. This stalled the update and thus removed the app from the ledger entirely. Thinking this was my main ETH wallet, I scrambled to re-access my funds with the recovery phrase. That process wasn’t too hard after looking into it, so I recovered with seed phrase and went to try and access my ETH account through the Ledger Nano X. I set up a small transaction to see if the recovery worked and my keys remained intact. My heart sank as the transaction failed due to an error message saying something to the effect of “wrong device...” Keep in mind this was not a wallet with a huge amount or anything, but for me it was quite a bit of money. Obviously I was risking what I can afford to lose.... but to lose it like that? On such an important day in crypto history? Fuck that was gonna hurt.... In my panic I started to think about the wallets I own... I tried another one, same error message. Then I remembered.... I have a Nano S elsewhere in the house.... I run to grab it. I plug that shit in and try one more time. Success. Incredible relief. But still, years of my life for the incredible 15-20 minutes of stress I had to endure to realize what a stupid mistake I made. Thankfully it cost me nothing because hardware wallets are designed for these types of circumstances. Lessons learned - always keep track of which accounts belong to what hardware wallet. I know this sounds obvious and makes me look totally stupid but it can save you a lot of anxiety if you’re like me and have 20+ accounts on 4-6 hardware wallets. Another lesson is don’t update Ledger apps from a phone over Bluetooth, as the phone going into sleep mode (or whatever you wanna call it) will disrupt the update and cost you some time recovering from seed. The last lesson is very simple: don’t panic, if you are educated in how these wallets work, there’s really no need to worry that you can’t recover funds. Oh, and make sure you have the right fucking wallet associated with whatever funds you’re trying to access. I have only needed to recover a device from seed 1 time, being last night. And now I feel amazingly confident that I will be able to access my funds no matter what happens to the device, as long as I safely store and hide the seed phrase from potential theft. I hope my story of complete stupidity and jackassery will help save someone else from the dread experienced when you think you’ve lost some valuable BTC or ETH. PS: I love Ledgers. I also own and really enjoy the KeepKey (that I got for $5... that’s a steal, if anyone has anything negative to say about them I’d be interested in hearing it though) and Shapeshift platform. Don’t own a Trezor and probably won’t ever, but I’d be curious to know why you think I should try that if you think it’s better.

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/
Can I import my own BIP32 wallet into Bitcoin Core?
Let's say that I've created my own BIP32 extended private and public key. Can import these (or only the extended public key in order to create a watch only wallet) into Bitcoin Core? I understand that Bitcoin Core now uses BIP32 behind the scenes to generate new addresses. Or am I forced to only using HD wallets created in Bitcoin Core, alternatively importing separate private keys?
How can I import an ElectronCash wallet seed into another wallet app, like Bitcoin.com’s?
I have the 12 word seed phrase of course, but it seems to be incompatible with the 12 words the Bitcoin.com wallet wants and recognizes. or do I need to change a derivation setting, instead of m/44/0/0 I think it’s defaulted at? Any expert help on this stuff would be much appreciated, and tipped ;)
Migrating from core wallet to bitcoin.com wallet. Why can't I import my old wallet?
Hello, I'm trying to migrate from one of the old core clients (I think it was bitcoin Knots) to the new bitcoin.com client. How do I import my old wallet? I've got my deposit address and my private key, but the bitcoin.com client is asking to import a bunch of shit I don't have, like a 12-word phrase or some kind of pre-exported backup file. Shouldn't I be able to just use my address and private key?
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 ;)

Now I would like to import my original wallet.dat from the old client which was encrypted into an new version of Bitcoin-Qt. How do I do that? Using Blockchain.info.
