In the end of 2013 or the beginning of 2014, I bought 80 000 Applecoins (APC) for 0.1 Bitcoins and got another ten by an airdrop, so I had a total of 80 010. I never spent the coins, and when a coinswap to a new version of Applecoin (APW) happened, I was too late to take advantage of the exchange offer, as I wasn't monitoring the coin then.
Fast forward to today. I simply could not find any copy of my wallet, and I looked on all my backup drives, simply not there. I don't specifically remember backing up the wallet, but I always do so when I run a wallet for a new cryptocurrency for the first time.
Well, all I have now is my public address and the password for the Applecoin wallet. Now the question is: Is there a chance that I can restore my private keys and basically my wallet by somehow bruteforce it?
In the Ethereum stack somebody posted a script with which he could restore his private keys just with the address and password. Is there a chance for me? Because nowadays only the new Version, APW is listed as active, the old one, in which I have the my balance of those 80 010 coins, is inactive.
