Verium Wallet

In order to use Verium you will need to use a Verium wallet. A cryptocurrency wallet is a software used to store, send, and receive digital currency. It may be viewed as an account in the ordinary banking system that serves as online banking client as well. Instead of an account number your wallet comes with an address also known as public key. Cryptocurrency itself is not actually “stored” in a wallet, the blockchain keeps track of the balance of everyones address. Your wallet in fact stores your private and public keys. The wallet should run 24/7 to keep the network stable. Thus an energy efficient device is mandatory these days. It doesn't need much computing power.

IMPORTANT: Never share your wallet password or private key!

You also need a mining software to mine Verium and store it in your wallet.

Installation Guides

Windows

Mac OS

Linux

Updated for Version 1.1

The whole thing as a script: [Download Shell script] or use

 wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/DJoeDt/verium/master/install_Verium_Wallet.sh
 chmod +x install_Verium_Wallet.sh
 ./install_Verium_Wallet.sh

It will do what is described in the step-wise Manual Verium Wallet Installation .

In case you see ERRORS like -No such file... - it actually helps to run the script again since probably the installation of some dependencies failed.

Raspberry Pi

First step is the choice of an image for the RPi, the current "stretch" images do not work out of the box. Raspbian Jessie Full or Raspbian Jessie lite is what works.

Then proceed with the Linux script or the step-wise Manual Verium Wallet Installation .

To get the compilation working on Raspbian Stretch see this RPi Stretch Fix.

How to include the blockchain manually in veriumd:

Download and save in verium subfolder

 wget -O ~/verium/bootstrap_VRM.zip http://www.vericoin.info/downloads/bootstrap_VRM.zip

Unzip it

 cd ~/verium
 unzip bootstrap_VRM.zip

Delete previous files

 rm -rf ~/.verium/txleveldb
 rm -rf ~/.verium/blk0001.dat

Move unzipped files to .verium folder

 mv ~/verium/bootstrap/blk0001.dat ~/.verium/blk0001.dat
 mv ~/verium/bootstrap/txleveldb ~/.verium/txleveldb

Securing your Wallet

The wallet stores private key information in a file named wallet.dat. It contains:

  • keypairs for each of your addresses
  • transactions done from/to your addresses
  • user preferences
  • default key
  • reserve keys
  • accounts

The wallet.dat file is located in

  • Linux
 ~/.verium
  • Windows
 $UserDirectory$/AppData/Roaming/Verium
  • Mac OS
 ~/Library/Application Support/verium/

Linux users of the veriumd make sure to use encryptwallet to excrypt your wallet with a passphrase.

Backup your wallet.dat in a secure place (USB drive, CD, ...).

Wallet Configuration & Usage

The wallet should run now, but we need to go to its directory

 cd verium/wallet/src

and get info about this by:

 ./veriumd getinfo 

Now stop the wallet

 ./veriumd stop

Configuration

It is configured in

 nano verium.conf

scroll to its very end, the lines to configure are

rpcuser=YourSoloMiningName
rpcpassword=YourSoloMiningPassword
rpcallowip=YourAccessIP
rpcallowip=localhost

You have to configure the IPs of the machines that should be able to connect. If you mine solo you have to come up with a username and a password for your miners to access the wallet.

Get your address

Now start the wallet again

 ./veriumd 

The most important thing right now is your wallets address gotten by

  ./veriumd getaddressesbyaccount ""

Backup

Finally backup by

 cp ~/.verium/wallet.dat somewhere/save/wallet.dat

To restore your wallet just do a fresh installation and replace the new wallet.dat with your saved one.

The most important thing you need to keep backed up is your private keys for your address(s) which are stored in the wallet.dat . Store & Secure both VeriCoin & Verium in One Paper Wallet [Paper Wallet Link]
