Upon launching Metamask, you will be brought to a menu where you can create or import wallets. For the purposes of this tutorial, we are going to use one wallet — Ganzul
In order to interact with other users on the network, including when sending messages as bots, you must deposit money into your wallet from which you plan to operate.
Deposit money into your available balance by clicking on “+ Add Money” and typing in an amount. We will use 500 METZ coins for our testing.
After adding cash to your account, you will be taken back to the Metamask interface. From here, click on “=– Wallet” followed by “= Referendum.” You will then be presented with options that pertain to how decentralized you want your Etherium address to be.
You can choose to generate a new address using the *Generate addresses* button, which is often referred to as mining. In order to mine doodads, you need to configure what’s called a *blockchain*, basically a shared database of all transactions.
By default, MetaMask generates a new address once you make a transaction; you can specify that it occurs every few minutes. What happens if I don’t take any action? After some time, distributed nodes run through a process called “sleeping” wherein they accept transactions and add them to their pending queue until such

Throughout The Lord of the Rings, one character is mentioned over and over again. That character is Frodo Baggins – an ordinary man with a great task.
His quest isn’t to be heroic or powerful, it is to carry a ring for thousands of miles through many dangers using his intelligence and fellowship.
He is devoted to something far greater than himself: the welfare of others.
As someone who has been kind to people that they cared about, I can tell you that this book will talk about what makes us human!
Frodo hasn’t learned how to fight, he doesn’t have superpowers. He is simply a good person who wants to save humanity.
I say all of this because there are hundreds of comments on your Facebook wall asking why anyone would trust a computer program with the fate of civilization.
There are also dozens of comments on your Instagram account demanding to know where they can find lunch today.
But there aren’t any comments from people talking about the important issues of our time. There are no meaningful conversations happening online, nor are we being encouraged to unite as citizens against common political opponents.
And there’s no sign of society splitting into competing consensuses.
Although it seeks to clarify one or more aspects of Wikipedia’s standards, traditions, mechanics, or practices, it is not a Wikipedia policy or guideline. Any organization can have a Wikipedia page created by our experts, who know how to create a Wikipedia page. It may show varying levels of consensus and vetting. It is usual to practice asserting that a certain fact is “common knowledge” in informal conversation.
In order for you to interact with the Elrond blockchain, you must be signed in to your Elrond account
By default, if you are not logged into Elrond online, then you will be directed to the login page
You can use any browser on your computer to access Elrond!
You just need to enter an email address and password to sign in.
If you already have an account, you can connect your accounts using three secret codes.
There are two ways to do this; either by entering your information manually or by clicking the “I’m registered” button.
However, it is recommended that you don’t put your code out there because anyone could find out about it.
So once you register, simply click on the link under the “Account” heading that says “”””””””. This will take you back to the account registration form.
And underneath the “Social Media Profile Picture” section, which has the Facebook logo, is where you’ll see another link labeled “I’m Registered “. Click this link to begin creating your profile, as well as to make other links available to you.
Go to the “#settings” tab
This is where you can find the “global settings,” if any exist for your Elrond instance (which you should set).
From here, you will see different options listed under the general section. Under the general category, you have access to things like how long it takes to sync the blockchain after submitting an action, what address to use when sending funds, whether to show the header or not, and more.
There are also some integrations with other services and apps that integrate with clemencies.
For example, the login page itself has links to LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Telegram, Medium, Blogger, WordPress, eBay, Android App Store, and iOS App Store.
You can choose which service/app to connect to each and every time you launch the program.
Look at the bottom of the page
There’s some useful information about who we are, what Elrond is, how transactions work, and links to our social media channels.
You also can find answers to questions such as why do I need this app, how this help me, and where can I get more info.
We have a very active community that participates in each other’s conversations, watches their feeds, and likes their pages.
By joining any of these groups, you will gain access to exclusive content, including alpha releases not available anywhere else.
There’s no one way to earn coins, but here are all the ways you can find out there from us.
And if you read anything that helps you, please share it with your friends.
Look at the top of the page
It is somewhere between your homepage and the pages that list wallets or account balances.
This is where you’ll find an overview of what transactions are pending, the status of any accounts, and how much longer it will be before they are depleted.
You can click on this section for a menu with different options. One way to open it is by clicking on “wallet” at the bottom left.
Another way to get there is via the first row of information on the home page (where it says “[header] How to contact Elrond [title] Click on the login in the upper-right part of the screen. [Step] This brings up your dashboard. In the sidebar, hover over my settings than other and enter your username to access your personal profile.
Then go into the next panel and enter your password to confirm. That should trigger the log-in process.
Find the button that says “Start Node”
This is found at the top left of the screen, directly below “Enter Account Password”
When you click this, a new page will appear with several different options. For now, choose Start Tor from Botland (see section).
This starts a local node for Tor within your browser. It will also start an IRC channel where others can communicate with you about the project. And lastly, it opens up the Brave Browser Window, which allows you to set preferences for the Tor network itself.
Here is what each option does:
IRC Channel: You can interact with people over chat. This is a good way to make friends or connect with other individuals around the world who are interested in Bitcoin/crypto technology more broadly.
There are many channels here organized by topic. If you want to learn more about using TOR, there are many threads discussing how to get started, the cost-benefits of doing so, etc.
If you need help setting up your node, there are also multiple nodes identified as ‘helping hands. Lastly, if you want to ask any question related to privacy, security, or decentralized internet, this is the place to do it.
Brave users can skip the signup step, create a vote for decentralized apps, and submit a name for the ballot. (A list of proposed names ever goes into the voting phase)
Click on the button
The elm ledger network is an open source decentralized platform where all transactions taking place are recorded as blocks. For this reason, it’s also called “blockchain technology.”
By default, when you encounter the term “elm blockchain” or simply “blockchain” within the network, they refer to the public chain associated with the elm protocol. There are two types of chains: the main net (also known as the public chain) and the testnet (which can be used for testing networks).
You will usually find testnets advertised under the Github repository of the project website. You can tell that it is a testnet by the string of letters after your address which should begin like “test-” and end in “. This document will discuss how to interact using the melon engine with the default testnet chain.”
[Step] Once there, navigate to the projects page and click the fork button beneath the melon explorer repo. Use the browser’s share menu to toggle download mode so that you can change directories and modify files without installing development tools.
[Sub steps] Upon forking, you’ll see a copy of the code inside the terminal window. Changes you make here won’t affect the original file.
They only become active once you push them up to the network via the geth
Find out what port the node is running on
After you have launched whichever browser you choose, it will take some clicking or swiping to reach the node’s admin screen. The URL is usually very obvious; if you had an IP address you could possibly find it that way too.
Once at the admin screen, look for the ‘info’ button next to the hostname banner. Clicking this should bring up more information about the host system.
You want to click on the link called “port” which can be found below “address” (see screenshot). This will open a new window where there are four options.
Choose “8081” since you need to run a wallet here. Most wallets require that the node accepts incoming transactions on that same port.
Remember that you can always check your current port by going into chrome/Firefox settings and then looking under “privacy” followed by “content settings.” Here you can see what ports other apps have access to.
