I just installed Ethereum Wallet on my Mac, looking at getting some Ether but bit confused...
I know a lot about Bitcoin but little about how Ether wallets etc work. My address is 0x36D46A5d58C8Bf48115b222672AfdE645B37D5a0 and looks different to a BTC wallet address. If I buy some Ether on like Kraken or something, how do I go about sending it to my Ether wallet. I saw I can make a 2nd account/wallet too? Can I hold BTC in one and Ether in another? Cheers for any help.
Is there a step-by-step instruction for installing ethereum on OSX 10.12?
I see different info on go, geth ethereum and that you need to install various versions of different things. But I don't understand how it all fits together. I'm a developer and have a experience of working with bash, but I just want to know what I need to do to make this software run.
I am installing my Ethereum wallet on my E Drive which is my HDD, but it puts the blockchain file under Users on the C drive and this is a problem because It is a small 120 GB SSD, with no enough space left to contain the blockchain file, thus it will get stuck and never finish installing. Any workaround? Thanks.
Clone the repository to a directory of your choosing: git clone https://github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum Building geth requires the Go compiler: pkg install go If your golang version is >= 1.5, build the geth program using the following command. cd go-ethereum make geth If your golang version is < 1.5 (quarterly packages, for example), use the following command instead. cd go-ethereum CC=clang make geth You can now run build/bin/geth to start your node.
Having trouble installing Ethereum on Mac. Looking for help!
I installed ethereum and tried to run it. after running it, it tells me to input this into the command line: geth --ipcpath /Users/johnzinno/Library/Ethereum/geth.ipc I then receive the message saying: Fatal: Error starting protocol stack: listen udp :30303: bind: address already in use What is my next step here? I'm obviously very new to this, but am doing my best to figure it this all out.
can not install ethereum app. continually giving error for weeks
keeps saying "unable to install application. please contact ledger support" lets me save the logs and continue to nothing. i can not find ANY way to contact support. no email, no support ticket site, nothing. just unhelpful generic faqs
How to download and install Ethereum Wallet and the Blockchain ( Geth aka Go Ethereum )
It took me quite a long while, honestly, but I'm going to give a brief set of instructions on how to install Ethereum Wallet and the Blockchain. These are two separate things. The Wallet allows you to interact with the database, that is the blockchain. (1) For starters, go here: https://www.ethereum.org/ And install the Wallet: https://github.com/ethereum/mist/releases/download/v0.8.9/Ethereum-Wallet-win32-0-8-9.zip Note : Look for updates This is straight forward, but nonfunctional. Next, install the backbone, (2) Geth. https://geth.ethereum.org/downloads/ (How you are supposed to know how and where to grab that ordinarily, I don't know). Now Geth, or Go Ethereum, is a funny program. Do NOT open it. Do NOT run the program after install, simply install it, and let it be. (3) Skip to step 4, or if you already opened Geth, do the following: Navigate to : C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Roaming\Ethereum And delete Geth, but leave Keystore (this is the Wallet - make a copy of this if you even think you may accidentally delete it). NOTE : This is how to transfer and safeguard your Ethereum Wallet. (4) So rather than Open Geth via Icon, you must access it via command line to use it properly. On Windows 10, do the following: windows + r -> type cmd -> enter -> type cd c:\pathtogeth\ OR type " CD C:\Program Files\Geth " - Enter This is the command prompt area. If you type something funny, a list of commands pops up, or " C:\Program Files\Geth>geth help ". If you type: "geth --fast --cache=1024" Then that will launch Geth in Fast Mode (Download and process after), and will utilize up to 1 Ram (default is 10% of 1 Ram - Alternatively you could say 2048 or something). Doing this will download like 2 million blocks an hour on fast comp with cable internet. After a few hours, the bulk of the process should be complete, at which point you'll receive a block a minute. More explanation regarding Step 3 and default settings: If you run Geth 'as default'', then essentially it can never complete as it only allocates 10% of 1 Ram AND verifies each and every block on each download all the way through (so with Fast, you are only verifying the 'top half' of the block chain, while downloading it in total, BUT under the default setting you download and then reverify each block, then download another, then reverify each block, etc... ). That's my understanding anyway. Gaming comp takes 4 hours, minimum spec comp 4 days. http://ethereum.stackexchange.com/questions/1161/what-is-geths-fast-sync-and-why-is-it-faster https://www.reddit.com/ethereum/comments/5qmvz1/ok_im_an_idiot_how_do_i_specify_geth_cache_size/ https://etherchain.org/blocks https://ethstats.net/ To begin mining, close Geth, return to the same command prompt and type: "C:\Program Files\Geth>geth --mine" and you're set! https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1t9IhJx-FsYv6iCRTUL9tB1oPIX3QmYWtznWuN5-D4dU/edit#slide=id.g1383245197_0_4 https://blog.coinbase.com/a-beginners-guide-to-ethereum-46dd486ceecf#.hre1dtg8l https://etherscan.io
I want to finally start investing in cryptocurrency. I have read a few stories where people computers were hacked and all their money was stolen. People then suggested only using linux and a encrypted hard drive. Is it not safe to use a windows computer? Should i find an old laptop and install linux on it to hold my wallet, or am i fine using my normal home computer? Sorry for the noob questions.
Best guide on how to install Ethereum (geth, mist, etc)?
Every youtube video, site, etc is telling my completely different requirements and they're not ELI5-level. How do you I get a mining + wallet operation going for Windows 10? I actually have a wallet from my Keepkey, not sure if that's sufficient...

hello. I recently made another mining rig(second one) in my house. It runs perfectly and shows hashrate and mining process, but it hasnt yielded any reward for past 3 days. I know that it takes a while but it usually took a day for me. Here are my setting: first rig: set to mine at nanopool. Using Local Config(deleted the remote config setting) on EthOS. correctly set up graphics setting, wallet address and used putconfig && minestop, then allow and restart. been fine for past year. second rig. set to mine at ethpool. Using Local Config and set to only 1 address. I know there are two stratum server but I only put stratum 1 which is us1.ethpool.org:3333. correctly set wallet address, graphics setting and putconfig && minestop then allow + restart command. it has been running fine without any error message but it hasnt yielded anything. I checked the wallet address several times, but it is exactly same as my first one and mist. What do you think can be the possible problem? /// P.S Problem solved by l1mejuice
I removed the ethereum app to update it to its newest version and i keep getting the message unable to install application. I installed another app to see if it worked (DASH) and it was ok are there any others having a problem installing ethereum.
I just installed Ethereum wallet for the first time and transferred funds from Bitfinex to a ethereum address. Time to see it in my wallet: under one minute! But I have some security questions.
This is great! On bitfinex I need to confirm with 2FA over sms and email and then you get a tamper proof image that you need to confirm. It took me a couple of minutes to confirm using the sms code and my email address. After all the confirmations where made I opened up Etherreum Wallet which I have running in light mode (for the first time in my life) and waited and within one minute I could see the funds. I have made a backup of the keystore on a thumb drive and I will also print of the keystore on paper. And then write the password on that paper too and put it in my safe. I am using linux mint 18. I checked the hash when I downloaded Ethereum Wallet. Any security tips and tricks or things to keep in consideration? So the private keys of my ethereum address are stores in a keystore file but they are encrypted with my password. Correct? So as long as I have that keystore file on backup and also remember my password I can acces the funds on that address (or account as ethereum wallet calls it) Do I ever need to create a wallet or can I just use a couple of addresses? All I want to use ethereum for is to transfer some profits I made day trading from Bitfinex and since ETH seems quite price stable compared to bitcoin cash and bitcoin. The only thing I did not like was the 0.01 ETH fee I had to pay over bitfinex. This is no problem for large sums but is a problem for small sums, percentage wise. Any tips on avoiding fees and still getting my ETH under my own control? I am okay with a lower fee and it talking longer.
