We are all equally individual.
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.

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
The wallet.dat file is located in
- Mac OS
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, ...).

and get info about this by:
Now stop the wallet
It is configured in
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
The most important thing right now is your wallets address gotten by
./veriumd getaddressesbyaccount ""
Finally backup by
