    Please post any problems you're having with the airdrop confirmation process in this thread. We can then guide you through the process. If you know an answer to someone else's question, please help them as we may not always be available to do so immediately.

    Hi,

    When mainnet launches, the address you submitted will be sent funds from the airdrop pool. The exact number will depend on the final number of participants.

    You can earn decred by either PoW or PoS mining. More details on how to do so will be forthcoming very soon.

    Hello. I have a Mac, and after I downloaded and saved my seed and hex, I pressed OK but nothing happened. No keys.txt file was created, and paragraph in dccraddrgen just repeated itself:
    "Once you have stored the seed in a safe
    and secure location, enter OK here to erase the
    seed and all derived keys from memory. Derived
    public keys and an address will be stored in the
    file specified (default: keys.txt):"

    I think you have type ok in lower case not in upper case OK , type OK and then check out the key.txt

    If you want to verify a seed using "dcraddrgen --verify", you have to make sure you enter it with only spaces (no line breaks). Total of 32 space-separated words.

    I had a new Ubuntu user ask me how to run the decred address gen executable. The easiest way is to open Terminal and then drag and drop the executable onto the Terminal window.

    when running dcraddrgen, is it necessary to be connected to the internet or can we do this disconnected?
    (for security purposes some may want to run it while disconnected)

    It's an offline generator, so no need to be connected to any network.

    Success! Should I delete the dcraddrgen.exe file (Windows 7 64-bit here) to prevent it from being run again and overwriting the keys.txt file?

    The program won't overwrite the keys.txt file if it already exists. Even if you did, it wouldn't matter since you can regenerate that key using your seed per the verify instructions.
