Hello everyone, It is with great excitement that I write this guide for Mainnet public launch which goes live at 12:00CST( - 6 hours GMT). This guide is a fork of my testnet guide, and written in a similar way. I assume people with no prior experience in testnet would be really curious to get their hands on this. So, no matter your geek level, this guide should help keep you covered. Must Read before continuing further: Thanks to @davecgh https://forum.decred.org/threads/de...rent-usernames-passwords-and-passphrases.428/ Longish post ahead, >DELETING YOUR TESTNET WALLET: 1) Incase if you had created a Testnet wallet and want to setup your mainnet wallet now, you can just delete it. Go to 'Users/Appdata/Local' and delete 'dcrd,dcrwallet.dcrctl' these files. >DOWNLOADING THE BINARIES: 2)Download your Operating System specific binaries(files) from the github page. Make sure to know if your system is 32-bit(x86) or 64-bit(x64). >OPENING THE BINARIES: 3) Open this with either Winrar or 7-Zip archiver using the provided 'Password' and extract it to a folder. Inside the folder there will be five files namely dcrd, dcrwallet, dcrrpcclient, dcrutil, dcrctl. Turning off the anti-virus is recommended. 4)Inside the folder where the files are present, hold down shift key and right-click on the empty space and click 'Open Command Window Here'. This will open the command prompt window(or terminal) in this location. ConEmu is a better cmd terminal for Windows users. >SETTING UP YOUR WALLET: 5)Now, enter the following on the command window just opened. dcrd -u user -P pass ,where 'user' and 'pass' are your desired usernames and passwords. Set up a strong one. Let this terminal run. 6) Open a new command window just the same way as above(hold shift and right click on the empty space where the three .exe's are present). To create the wallet, type the following dcrwallet --create PLEASE VISIT THE IMGUR ALBUM CONTAINING STEP BY STEP PROCEDURES IN PICTURE: https://imgur.com/a/CaJ4M HIGHLY IMPORTANT: >IMPORTING AIRDROP SEED INTO YOUR WALLET: This is for the 3244 people who successfully registered for the Airdrop and got a confirmation. You would be receiving 282 Decreds which would be locked until 256 blocks( according to @jy-p). Those who do not have a seed, can create a new seed by entering 'NO' when it asks if you want to add an existing seed. <>Command window will ask to input a private passphrase for your wallet. While entering, the passphrase would look blank, but actually you are typing.So, please pay attention. Do not forget this. <>Confirm by typing it again. <>Now, it asks if you want to add an additional encryption layer for public data. Say 'yes'.T0pe the public passphrase and confirm by typing again. Do not forget this. It looks blank as well. <>Next, when it asks if you have an existing wallet seed, enter 'yes' and type the 33-word text carefully, as such, without any mistakes and case errors. <> It would now say, The wallet is successfully created. 7)Next step, type the following command, dcrwallet -u user -P pass --walletpass publicpassphrase --dcrdusername=user --dcrdpassword=pass Replace 'user' and 'pass' with username and password and publicpassphrase with the publickey you entered in the previous step. >GETTING A NEW ADDRESS: 8)After the above step is completed successfully, type the following in a new command window. dcrctl -u user -P pass --wallet getnewaddress This will give you a new address which starts with 'Ds'. Be sure to save it as well. You will receive your coins to this address. >UNLOCKING THE WALLET: 9) In order to send coins to an address, the wallet must be unlocked. To do this, dcrctl -u user -P pass --wallet walletpassphrase test 120is the command. Replace 'user' and 'pass' with your username and password. IMPORTANT: Replace 'test' with your 'privatekey'. 120 is the time in seconds the wallet will be unlocked for you to send funds. If you feel this time is small, you can set 300 seconds(5 minutes). After the specified time, your wallet will be locked again. If you want to unlock your wallet forever, enter the value as '0'. NOTE:Receiving funds does not need your wallet to be unlocked. So, this step can be skipped if you are just receiving. >RECEIVING COINS: 10)To receive Decred coins, share your address with the sender so he may send the coins to you. Ideally, itt is recommended to use a new address everytime you receive coins. >LISTING THE TRANSACTIONS: 11) To check your transactions(imagine this as a statement from your bank), type the following command, dcrctl -u user -P pass --wallet listtransactions This will show you the sent or received transctions, the amount, txid(transactionid), etc. >KNOWING YOUR BALANCE: 12) To know the balance of your wallet, the command is dcrctl -u user -P pass --wallet getbalance Your balance might be 0 if there is no confirmation(zero confirmation) when you check using 'listtransactions'. So please wait. >SENDING COINS TO AN ADDRESS: 13.)Perform STEP#8 before doing this step, i.e, wallet should be unlocked. To send coins to an address, the following command is used, dcrctl -u user -P pass --wallet sendtoaddress DseXaMpLeadDreSS 10 In the above string replace 'DseXaMpLeadDreSS' with the address that you want to send the amount to. And replace '10' with amount that you want to send exactly. Be it 0.5 or 1.2 or some x value. You will be provided with a 'txid' which you can share with the receiver.(Example txid 1f980fa4f603b61efec856b0468185016c37b004767526d5e95131ab08136dc1). ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- PoW Mining will be updated soon.Stay tuned.
