This tutorial explains how to use MyEnergiWallet (MEW), our new Gen 3 Wallet.
We highly recommend you to use the Desktop App version
If you choose to use the web version, make sure to ALWAYS verify the URL and the SSL certificate.
2. Create a new wallet
2.1. - Let's get started by clicking on CREATE WALLET.
2.2. We recommend selecting the Keystore File option, as it's easier to transfer between our different wallets.
2.3. Choose a strong password as it's used to encrypt your wallet. Make sure to write it down on paper, and store it in a safe place.
2.4. Save your keystore file and again, save it in a safe place.
2.5. On the next screen you will be able to save your wallet as a paper wallet, and your private keys if you want to.
Safest option is to print your Paper wallet and store it in a safe place.
Congratulations, you successfully created your new wallet!
3. The 3-2-1 Backup rule
The 3-2-1 Backup rule consist of :
- Having (at least) 3 backups of your wallet
- Storing these backups on 2 different supports
- Keeping one backup off-site
3.1. The first backup will stay on your machine in a new folder for this usage!
(NOT in any installation folder, which might result in a loss)
3.2. The second backup will be stored in an USB key.
3.3. The third backup will be stored in a Cloud service (such as Google Drive), ensuring an off-site backup.
3.4. Finally, NEVER store your password digitally. Always note it on paper and keep it somewhere safe.
