ETHO Wallets Introduction

Last updated 2 days ago

How you store and access your ETHO is directly proportional to how secure your funds will be. In the fight against malfeasant actors in the crypt scene, we are our own best ally. We need to remain vigilant and steadfast in how we approach every cryptocurrency transaction.

The Ether-1 project currently supplies two methods for transferring ETHO between users.

  1. Desktop wallet: Installed on Windows or Linux machines. This wallet generates UTC/JSON files encrypted with passwords that represent the user's accounts. To find out how to install and use the desktop wallet, see Setting up Windows ETHO Wallet.

  2. Web wallet:

    1. Accessible via the web at https://wallet.ether1.org/ (always check address & certificate). This wallet generated UTC/JSON files encrypted with passwords that represent the user's accounts. It also allows the user to extract the Private Key, which is another way to access the wallet in addition to the UTC/JSON way. The web wallet supports the use of hardware wallets, which greatly enhance user funds protection. To find out how to use the web wallet, see Setting up ETHO Web Wallet.

    2. You can also use a trusted 3rd party web wallet from https://www.myetherwallet.com in all the same ways as the official web wallet above.

The recommended method of storing and accessing your ETHO is using a hardware wallet along with the official web wallet
