    Hi, recently i purchased some bitcoins, after receiving the coins to my wallet, i had trouble sending it to someone.
    I tried sending it using bitcore client, but it didnt work. So i made a passphrase for my wallet. I copy pasted a line from a notepad text and entered as passphrase. Now everytime i enter the passphrase, it says its incorect. I don't know why it says its incorect because its the same text i copy pasted.
    Can someone please help me? thanks

    Nevermind, i solved the issue. Apparently when you copy past a password from a document, it creates a problem because of empty spaces.
    After trying it multiple times, its now working. :)

    maybe next time you can copy paste the password from notepad.
    Documents like MS. Word sometimes has hidden character.

    try to change your password and stop being afraid of the old one.
    But you can also try to put it in the letters manually.

    Don't copy / paste because sometimes it will add a blank space at the end of the passphrase...
    I've made this mistake before.

    I'd strongly suggest you signup to a web wallet because of this issue.

    If you ever lost your passphrase your coins would permanently be out of circulation and you'd be left with nothing because the coins will be not accessible.

    Desktop wallets are kind of outdated... Xapo, Coin Base or BlockChain would be your best bet to avoiding a catastrophic loss.

    I second that for Blockchain, which has various methods for emergency retrieval.

    Thank god that you unlock your bitcoin.

    I copy my bitcoin wallet on PC, Netbook, and 1x old PC.

    Also I take backup of passphrase on pen drive, pc, etc..
