Triton CLI Wallet Tutorial

Go to Triton Releases in our Github and search for the most up-to-date release.

Currently, that is Beryllium v4.0.5. Next, you will want to download the asset that matches your operating system. For us that is Now that you have the wallet downloaded, go ahead and throw both files in the .zip into a folder. 

2.1 | Running the Triton Daemon (optional)

Now that both files are in a folder somewhere on your computer, go ahead and run tritond by double-clicking it.

2.2 | Running the CLI Wallet on a Remote Node

If you want to start the wallet up faster and not download the entire blockchain to your computer, you have the option of connecting to one of our remote nodes. 
Command: set_daemon IP:Port
Example: set_daemon

3 | Creating a Wallet

Go ahead and start up the triton-wallet-cli file.
Once it’s running, you will be prompted to create a wallet. Name it whatever you want. Next, you’ll be prompted to type Y/Yes/N/No. Go ahead and type Yes.
Now you need to set a password. Once again, you can set it to whatever you want.

After setting your password you will be asked to select a language. Pick whatever language you prefer by typing the corresponding numbers:
0 : Deutsch
1 : English
2 : Espa├▒ol
3 : Français
4 : Italiano
5 : Nederlands
6 : Português
7 : русский язык
8 : 日本語
9 : 简体中文 (中国)
10 : Esperanto
11 : Lojban
After selecting your language you will be given your seed. Copy these words somewhere secure (ex. Text document, usb drive, piece of paper). If you didn’t connect to the daemon you will be given an error:

Go ahead and connect to one of our remote nodes by entering the following command: set_daemon <node>:<port>. We are going to use as our remote node with port 9231.

Let this sit for a while and once it is done it will no longer say (out of sync). Every few minutes hit enter on your keyboard and eventually (out of sync) will go away.

4 | Restore an existing wallet with a .keys file

If you go back to the folder where you pasted the initial two files, you will now see two more files that are named after the wallet you just made. If you have create a wallet in that past, all you need to do is find your .keys file and put it in the folder with the two files you have downloaded. After you throw your old .keys file in the folder, go ahead and run triont-wallet-cli, then go back to step 3.
