I use CLI on Mac daily. You always need to run the Electroneumd file to connect to the blockchain and it take a while to initially catch up (there is a short cut procedure as per 101 notes above). Then you can open the CLI file to import a wallet. Take your time learning about it.

Here is a video that will help a bit as well, as is on a mac. Just note he uses the private keys but better practice is to use public keys for security.


Great I will try this. It’s one thing i am yet to accomplish. First stop the video! Thank you.

Also wanted to mention that you can still use Remote Node method with Mac or Linux. If you want to create a view wallet only check out the View Wallet Only Mode.

Here is an example of command with remote node from terminal once you have entered wallet directory.

wallet at end of --generate-from-view-key is the name of your wallet.

View Wallet

./electroneum-wallet-cli --daemon-host=nodes.hashvault.pro:26968 --generate-from-view-key=wallet

Withdrawl and View Wallet

./electroneum-wallet-cli --daemon-host=nodes.hashvault.pro:26968  --generate-from-keys=wallet

Last scheduled hard fork time shows a daemon update is needed now.

I notice these warning messages as well. I typically ignore this one as it appears harmless. My client is up to date.

did you compile the client? on Linux?

Windows, an already compiled binary from GitHub https://github.com/electroneum/electroneum/releases

I’ve made small modifications to Table of Contents, hopefully its a little easier to navigate and find exactly what you are looking for.

I’ve also added a few direct links to other guides such as opening paper wallet with mobile app. These may need some attention in the near future as we have definitely evolved!
