With instructions and more important, the common pitfalls.

It should be pinned.

Can you write it as a starter @Daniel Keller it would be great to just refer to to it when people are in trouble. Other techies might chime in and contribute.
All cannot be covered. But at least the most common dummy :classic_biggrin: mistakes.

But does it not tell you to back up your keys and save your password when creating your account?

This is why I've been asking Moderators to Pin or put this thread Up in the Important ones. At least is a way to have a backup wallet if you do not want to mess with Paper Wallets or just don't know how to use them:

Please Mods!! Make this happen... We need our members and CSC Users to be safe!!!... @Marco   @Chewiecoin

This ^^

Most of you will know I lost my coins recently.

The issue I had is, when you install the wallet, it only allows to proceed after checking the "I have saved the password recovery passphrase or understand the consequences of not doing so".

It doesn't mention the consequences of not backing up your private key.  It may be common sense to most people but not all and I firmly believe the wallet creation should include this also.

If you have a Ledger Nano (as I do), the recovery phrase is the ONLY thing required to retrieve your coins in case of a hardware fault.  I believed  the same would apply with the CasinoCoin wallet but I was wrong.

There will be a new updated wallet  Clarifying this, and auto backup when starting wallet to make it even simpler and straight forward for new compers .

The auto backup is useless in case of a hardware fault but still better than nothing.

The best thing to do would be to backup the private key to a USB stick and store it away safely.

I mean the new update will force you to select a folder to backup your keys , it is already saved in documents folder but people ignore it . Maybe if they need to select a place it could be a USB .

I think the main thing would be a message to stress the importance of backing up the private key during the installation of the wallet as well as the forced backup location.

Also, can someone please confirm, do we just need the private key backed up or do we need the entire .CasinoCoin folder to be backed up?

All you need is the exported file,inside that file you have secret key. Either the file or the key inside can be used to restore your wallet .

 

Try using the export file to restore your new test wallet 🙂 doesn't need to be activated
