Wallet setup guide
« on: May 06, 2018, 08:28:47 am »
Step 1
For getting started with Crown we need the wallet
You can download it from the following link:
https://crown.tech/wallet/

For windows, upack the downloaded file.


After unpacking these files to the place you want to have the program of the wallet, open the folder just extracted.
Here you see 2 folders, open the BIN folder.


Here you see a number of files. We are going to start crown-qt.exe (you can make a shortcut to the desktop of it as well).


At the first start you will be asked to choose a data location. The Crown wallet along with all files is is stored here.


Choose a location, or use the location that the application offers and click OK.
Your Crown wallet will now be started.


As soon as the wallet has been started, we will first secure it.
You do this by clicking “settings” at the top of your screen and selecting “Encrypt wallet”.


There will now be a popup where you have to enter a self-chosen password twice. Do not forget this password!


After setting a password, press “OK”. You will see a warning.


Click “Yes” and then “OK” to continue
Disclaimer: IF the program stops responding it’s doing the heavy calculations of encrypting the wallet… Force closing it corrupts your wallet.dat.


The wallet will now close and you will have to restart it yourself.

Step 2
Now we are going to make a backup of the wallet file, this is important if you want to move the wallet to another computer or if the file unexpectedly gets damaged, so make sure you keep it well because this is the access to your Crown! Click on “File” and then “Backup Wallet” at the top of the Crown wallet.


Once again there will be a new popup screen, here you have to select the location to store the Crown wallet file. Enter a filename and click on “save”.



Be sure to backup your wallet every time you used it for a transaction.
