Synchronization should commence.. If you do not, check your firewall or temporarily turn off. If this does not work, you need to find out if there is a problem somewhere on your network – the firewall on the router or the provider.

Unluckily, synchronization may take several hours (last time it took mij all night). While wij proceed on with the wallet, but until the synchronization is finish, the wallet will not be up to date and can vertoning the old gegevens – meaning you even senseless value. Therefore, do not fright until the synchronization stops.

This directive will trigger a wallet with a parameter that says wij have keys, and based on thesis keys wij generate a wallet – the wallet.etn verkeersopstopping.

Go after the instructions.

  • Standard address – your wallet address
  • Secret spend key – spend the key from your paper wallet
  • Secret view key – view private key from paper wallet
  • Inject fresh wallet password – set your wallet password (I do not recommend that you set the same password witch you have on Electroneum webstek or Cryptopia webstek)
