Stay safe

Things to know before you start.

If you have not used a crypto wallet before, we recommend you to know a few things first. Crypto wallet is a digital wallet used to send, receive and store cryptocurrencies like DigiByte. Some wallets are built for a single currency and some can be used for more than a coin. Also some wallets you can manage yourself and some can be custodial like found on exchanges. There are a range of wallet types to choose like desktop, mobile, hardware, web and paper.

Blockchain transactions are peer to peer and irreversible so there is no company to control your operations. That means if you send or receive coins using an incorrect address then nobody can help you. Most of the wallets give you a recovery phrase includes some words. If you lose access to your wallet, this phrase is the only way to recover your funds. Also anyone can reach your coins by using this phrase, that's why you must keep it safe by storing on a paper and not online.

Simplified Payment Verification (SPV)

"Paper wallets" (private key + public address combinations that can be stored offline via USB file or written/engraved physically) can also be created securely at WalletGenerator.net, allowing for cold storage of DGB at 0 cost.

For maximum security, it is recommended to scroll to the bottom of the page to "Download Github Repository" to run the wallet generator offline. At Github, click "Clone or download" (it'll be a green rectangular box to the far right above the list of recent commits), then choose to download it as a "Zip" file. Once saved, you can unzip the file. Contents will include the cosmetic files used to present the site (.png or .jpg files), as well as all of the Javascript (.js) files used to run the tasks of wallet generation. All you need to worry about is the "index.html" file which will allow you to run the generator offline (so that you know no one is peeking at your private keys).

Completely disconnect from the internet, disable Wi-Fi and run the "index.html" file. It'll open the website without needing an internet connection. To the right is a scroll bar that includes the list of supported cryptocurrencies. Choose DigiByte. Instructions are very simple. You'll receive a private key + public address. Never share your private key. Your public address is what you'll be sending your DigiByte to. You can check the balance of the wallet at a blockchain explorer such as DigiExplorer by searching the public address, and sweep funds off the wallet with an app such as Coinomi when ready to trade. Never send funds to a wallet you've already swept, for security reasons (as the private key will have to be exposed to the internet to sweep the funds from it).
