Desktop wallet

Innen: MicroCoin Wiki

What can we use for the desktop wallet

We can handle our coins most safely with the desktop wallet. The desktop wallet stores our private keys on our computer. We can manage our accounts, send coins to another account and lots of another functions are available. It's strongly recommended to use it - and learn how to use it!

The first start

After the first start we can see an About window where we can see the important parts of the license and we can see who worked on this program. Clicking on the Close button we can close this window. After the next starts it won't appear again, but we can open it again in the About menu.

The wallet displays the About... window after the first start

The main window

On the program's main window we can see more things. At the top of the window, we can find the menu what we can use to navigate in the program. At the top left side we can see some informations, like our actual balance and the accounts numbers. Under these informations, there is a form for sending funds to another account and at the right side of the main window there is a list of our accounts. Here we can filter and watch all of the accounts in the system and we can see buttons for managing the accounts. If we're installed the program for the first time, then probably we aren't have an account. In this case it's recommended to obtain one on Discord. At the botton part of the window, there are some other informations, at the left bottom corner there is the indicator of the network status. If the status indicator says active, everything is fine about the network connection. Near of the indicator, we can see how many clients and servers are connected to our program. For us, it's important to connect to one servers, but it's better to connected more than one server. Near the clients and servers informations, there is an informant about the network traffic, the amount of blocks, the difficulty and the last block's time. At the first start, the program is downloading the blockchain; you can use it when last block time's indicator is showing just a few minutes. Before this, we will see only historical data.

Settings

Until the program is syncing the blockchain data, it may be a good idea to take our time usefully and setup a few things. For this, we need to click to the Settings menu at the top bar. A new window will open, where we will see three tabs.

Application settings

There we can setup the application's appearance (theme) and the notifications about the new transactions. Let's try out all of the themes and select the most likeable one.

Mining

On this tab, we can setup our mining name and port. It's not worth to modify the port number, only if you have a serious reason for it.

We can freely modify our mining name, but it's good to know this name will appear in every block mined by us, so do not provide any personal data here!

When we are mining, we are getting new accounts after the new blocks we found. The accounts are belongs to key pairs. For using the keys we have three possibilities:

Generate a new private key for each generated block
The wallet will generate new key pair for every new block found by us.
Use a random existing key
In this case the wallet will choose a random one from our existing keys.
Always mine with this key
We can choose an existing key from a drop-down list and the wallet will always use this key to mine.
It's recommended to always use one existing key for mining, so we will not have too much unnecessary keys in a certain time!

Server

This tab is for advanced users. We can modify the JSON-RPC and P2P server's settings.

The server will listening on the port number what is specified in the Server port address field. It's worth to modify if we want to modify our server with port forwarding. In another cases we need to leave it unmodified.

Enabling the JSON-RPC server is necessary if we want to reach the wallet via RPC protocol (for example, we are developing an application). In another cases, it's recommended to leave it turned off for security reasons.

The JSON-RPC Server port is the port number what we would like to use for call the JSON-RPC server.

We can add IP-addresses in the allowed client ip addresses field (separated with semicolons) what we want to use for call the JSON-RPC server. The server will only answer to requests arrived from these IP-addresses.
