Create Electroneum Wallet Based on Your Operating System
Creating Electroneum Wallet on Windows
The first step you have to take is to type “cmd” in the search bar. When the command prompt desktop app has opened, type “cd Downloads” and hit the “Enter” key on your keyboard. Next, type “cd win-x64–0” and enter. Finally, type “. /electroneumd”. This should launch a daemon and in turn a synchronization with the electroneum blockchain. Please note that this could take a while.
When the synchronization is complete, you have to open a new command line. As previously done, type “cmd” in the search bar. When the command prompt opens, type “cd Downloads” and enter. Then “cd win-x64–0”, enter. Finally, to launch the script that’ll help you create your Electroneum wallet and use it, type “. /electroneum-wallet-cli” and hit “Enter”.
The first thing that’ll be required of you when the script launches is your wallet name. If it turns out that you don’t have one, it can easily be created from any name of your choosing. Input the name of the wallet you intend to use.
The next thing it’ll tell you is “no wallet was found”. You’ll then be given an option of creating a new one. Press the “Y” key to take this option. You’ll be asked to type a password and confirm it, and your preferred language. Enter “1” for English. Finally, write down the 25 characters that’ll be provided by the script. This will help you in case you lose your wallet. That’s all you need to do to create an Electroneum wallet on Windows.
Creating Electroneum Wallet on Mac OS/ Linux
Like the Windows, the first step is to open the Terminal.app. When the terminal is up, type “cd Downloads” and hit the “Enter” key on your keyboard. Next, type “cd mac-x64–0” or “cd linux-x64–0” and enter. Finally, type “. /electroneumd”. This should launch a daemon and in turn a synchronization with the electroneum blockchain.
When the synchronization is complete, you have to open Terminal.app. When the Terminal is running, type “cd Downloads” and enter. Then “cd mac-x64–0” or “cd mac-x64–0”, enter. Finally, to launch the script that’ll help you create your Electroneum wallet and use it, type “. /electroneum-wallet-cli” and hit “Enter”. The rest of the process is the same as Windows.
That’s how to create an Electroneum wallet on a Mac or Linux desktop.
