Overview

One wallet can contain multiple addresses. Each address has a balance of coins.

PoP Mining and PoW Mining both require an address.

Create an address

Make an offline address without running a full node

Example: PoW Mining - send your rewards to an address

Just run the makeaddress tool here: https://github.com/VeriBlock/nodecore-releases/releases/download/v0.1.1-tools/makeaddress-0.1.2.zip

This address can later be imported into NodeCore via the importwallet command. NodeCore_CommandLine#importwallet

Make an address from a full node

NodeCore will create an address by default. If you install a full node, you can view this via getinfo or getbalance.

How to create a vanity address

In a command-line shell, run the makeaddress program (makeaddress.bat on Windows) with additional command-line options.

#Example: Create an address, searching on 8 threads, that starts with 'Abc', like VAbc...
makeaddress Abc true 8

#creates an address like so:
