Here's a quick image of Shellnet in action:
Because Shellnet is a web wallet, all you have to do is go to the website to interact with your wallet
Creating a Wallet/Signing Up¶
To create a wallet, go to the signup page
Choose a username, and a strong, rememberable password to go along with it.
If someone gets access to this password, they get access to your funds on Shellnet!
Opening a Wallet/Logging In¶
To login to your wallet, go to the login page
Enter the username and password you chose when signup up and press
Viewing Wallet Address¶
Your wallet's public address is available under
Wallet Info next to
Address on the home screen:
To copy it to your clipboard, press the small icon next to it.
Each TurtleCoin wallet is essentially, just a pair of keys (View Key and Spend Key) from which the public address is derived. It is very important to export these keys and back them up somewhere that is safe and secure (meaning somewhere reliable/permanent that no one else can access).
In the event of a lost or corrupted wallet file, computer crash, etc., the View Key and Spend Key are the only way to restore a wallet and recover the funds it holds.
DO NOT SHARE IT WITH ANYONE. Anyone who has these can access your funds and has complete control over your wallet.
To view your keys, click on the
export keys button in the top left.
Confirm your password when prompted
Your Private Spend and View key will now be displayed:

CONFIRM to send; if something is amiss, press anywhere else to remove the dialogue.

Because transactions on the TurtleCoin blockchain are privatized, in some situations a payment ID is necessary for the recipient to be able to determine where the payment came from, for instance when depositing to an exchange or other service.
You need it if you're sending TRTL to an exchange.

Enter Payment Id... field
