Hello,

Few years ago when I mined using couple of my rigs I accumulated some BTC in MultiBit Wallet. Didn't bother or not sure how to cash in I left the wallet alone.

Yesterday when I was cleaning up some of the old SSDs, I found the Wallet and was trying to transfer the contents to Coinbase account.

When I try to send, MultiBit complains about the Coinbase Address not valid.

Since MultiBit is very old and out of support it probably doesn't conform to new policies or something.

Can someone help with the steps I need to take to get this BTC transferred to Coinbase or other Wallets that are secure and current?

Thanks.

I'd say contact Coinbase but their customer service is non-existent. I've been trying for months, and assume only Coinbase Pro customers get serviced.

All I can say is check the address, it might have scrolled off the screen.

There are older and newer types of BTC addresses (newer ones cost less fees to transfer, for example); try sending it to any different wallet (bitpay has a windows app, or there are lots of phone apps) or exchange like Binance or blockchain.com

It's the problem with MultiBit, anytime I have an address to send to and hit send, it complains that the address is invalid.

I can advise with this if you are stuck, but it'd be billable hours. Depends on how much you are talking if it's worth it.

Just offering if you need it. I generally ask $30.00 an hour for stuff like this and it'd probably be under an hour of data conversion. You'd most likely have to trust me with your private key, of course. Not sure how awkward that is.

For the record, I'm a former mulitbit user and there is absolutely a way out, but it's not easy nor something I can merely walk you through.
