'How-To' Mac WebWallet Guide
This guide will show you how to install and setup the ScPrime WebWallet on an Intel based Mac. Note this guide will just go through the basics of getting it installed and up and running. Please refer to the main guide here, for a more in depth guide.
To start off we need to download the MacOS WebWallet from the software page.
Once we’ve done that we have the zip file in our Downloads folder, double click the zip file to unzip it and then move the file to your home folder (can be run from any folder really):
Now we can see we have a ‘scp-webwallet-v0.1.9-darwin-amd64’ folder in our home folder, if we go into that folder we see the following files:
The first time you run the spc-webwallet app, you need to right click on it and select Open:
You’ll see this error box come up:
Click Cancel, right click the scp-webwallet app again and Open, this time you’ll see this box come up:
Click Open and then Allow in the following box:
Next you’ll see a Web Wallet screen giving you the options to choose your preferred browser to use:
Choose your preferred browser and you’ll be prompted to close the Web Wallet and reopen. This time you can just double click on the scp-webwallet icon to launch it.
The first time you’ll be presented with this page as the WebWallet needs to be sync’d with the blockchain, both Bootstrap or Build options will work. If you want to setup a Cold Wallet choose Cold (more about that in the main guide linked above)
Choosing Bootstrap we’ll see it downloading the consensus database which will take a few mins depending on the speed of your internet connection.
Once it’s downloaded you’ll be presented with the following 4 options:
For simply setting up a new Wallet, choose the ‘Create New Wallet’ option. That takes us to this page where we need to give the wallet a name and then enter a password and confirm it. Make sure to make a note of the name and password as next time opening the WebWallet you will need these details.
Then click on Create New Wallet. You’ll then see it initializing the wallet which again takes a few mins.
Once complete you’ll be presented with the main WebWallet page.
This shows you in the top left the wallet name you created, the current block height, your confirmed and unconfirmed balance, ScPrime Funds (SPF) and the Wallet Size (see main guide for more on this). The last important step to getting setup is to click on Open Menu in the top right.
And then select Recover Seed.
This will show you your wallet’s recovery seed phrase. Make sure to make a note of this and keep it safe so you are able to recover your SCP coins in the case of no longer being back to access the WebWallet on this Mac for example, they can always be recovered from a new wallet using the recovery seed phrase.
For more details on the rest of the WebWallet functionality please refer to the main guide found here.
