As many of you may know by now, we have recently implemented a new signing scheme which has brought forth several improvements to the IOTA core (many of which can be read about here). As such, all old signatures and addresses are no longer valid - which means we need to transition towards this new system.
Now as a headsup to everyone: none of your tokens are lost and it’s all fine, so don’t worry. All you have to do is follow the steps mentioned below which will help you in successfully reclaiming your tokens and the networking going back to a normal state.
What you need to do
Follow the Tutorial on how to setup Nostalgia as well as the latest IRI from here: https://iota.readme.io/docs/getting-started-with-nostalgia
You can now either generate a new seed for a new account, or you can continue using your old seed. Simply login with your chosen seed into Nostalgia and then click on "Generate Address". Wait until the Proof of Work is done and the address appears in the table.
Get your old seed and make sure that it's correctly formatted (only uppercase latin letters and 9).
Enter your old seed, as well as your new address, in the placeholders below and then go to that address in your browser (you have to wait a while for something to happen):
Once the website has loaded, you will have to go back to Nostalgia and click on "Transfer Iotas". Enter the address, message and tag which was shown to you on the service.iotatoken.com website. For
value enter 0.
Wait for the transaction to be successful.
That's everything. As simple as that. Once you have successfully made your transfer you have nothing to worry about. All claims will be processed tomorrow once the network has been successfully restored. So you should be able to get your balance again then.
