I kinda forgot about this after participating in the crowd sale by buying in with JINN. Checking things out now, and trying to claim my IOTA. I'd appreciate some help!
I'm sure I'm missing some steps and things have changed a lot, but I'm trying to piece together the steps to get up and running with my coins.
IIRC correctly, back in the day I sent JINN to an address, went to a website to generate an IOTA address with a password that I generated, then sent a Nxt message to an account w/ my address. I see the address I have saved in the genesis distribution listed here:
If I'm understanding it correctly, the password I used to generate that address is no longer valid, so I need to claim my IOTA by generating a new seed.
To do this I:
1).upper() the pw I used to generate my IOTA address on the website back in the day, plus replace all special chars with 9.
2)Use the GUI walled to claim IOTA by entering my modified pw, + a the new seed that I had the GUI generate for me twice.
I followed these steps, but after the claiming process it tells me "EMPTY SEED".
Do these steps look correct, or am I missing something in there?
