Once you open Qwertycoin Wallet, it will automatically create your first Qwertycoin address and start synchronizing with the network.
It is highly recommended that you encrypt your new wallet with a password. Leaving the wallet unprotected makes it vulnerable in case your system is compromised.
To encrypt your wallet, choose “Settings” menu and then “Encrypt wallet”.
Wallet file format
Unlike Qwertycoin Reference Client, Qwertycoin Wallet uses .wallet files instead of legacy .keys files to store your private keys for each wallet.
Qwertycoin Wallet is able to import .keys files (with the existing password), but it will create a .wallet file for further operations.
Qwertycoin Wallet files
Qwertycoin Wallet introduces several new files stored in the standard Qwertycoin folder:
The most commonly used files are the following:
- qwertycoinwallet.wallet – a default wallet keys file that is created on first startup of Qwertycoin wallet and gives access to your fresh Qwertycoin address.
- qwertycoinwallet.log – a log file for the node that is running inside Qwertycoin Wallet.
