MacOS CLI Wallet Guide

Go to the Electroneum Releases Github page:

Download the MacOS version of the CLI wallet. Current latest release is:
https://github.com/electroneum/electroneum/releases/download/v3.3.1.0/electroneum-release-static-osx-3.3.1.0.tar.gzip

Files will be downloaded to your default location (default is usually the Downloads folder)

In Finder, go to your Downloads folder and double click the downloaded file (electroneum-release-static-osx-3.3.1.0.tar.gzip)

This unzips the folder. Move this unzipped folder to your Desktop. Rename it to “etn” for ease.

In Finder, go to this etn folder and right click on the “electroneum-wallet-cli” file and click Open. You’ll get a malware warning but click Open anyway. If you don’t right click and try to open it by just double clicking it, you won’t get the Open button. This only needs to be done once.

When the wallet opens, press Ctrl + C to close the wallet.

Hold down the command key and press the space bar to load up Spotlight search and type in “Terminal” then press Enter.

In Terminal, type in “cd Desktop/etn” and press Enter.

Type “./electroneum-wallet-cli –daemon-host=13.74.171.8:8081” press Enter

You’re now into the cli wallet and will connect to my remote node. If you have the GUI wallet already, copy your wallet name and wallet name.keys file into this folder and everything should be there once you load it up and put your password in.

If you don’t have a wallet already, create a new one and all the functionality from here on is identical regardless of operating system.

If you want to download a full copy of the blockchain and run your own node, you need to load the electroneumd first, let that sync and then load the cli wallet. Let me know if you want more details on this.

Hope this helps.
