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.
