The Attrace wallet consist of 2 basic pillars

This manual explains in simple terms how to set up your own Attrace wallet.

The Attrace wallet consist of 2 basic pillars:

  1. Your Attrace Private Key: This is your password (like the password of your online bank account). NEVER share your Private Key with anyone.
  2. Your Attrace Public Key: This is your public account/wallet number (like your bank account number).

In blockchain tech your Public Key can be shared with others to receive tokens, however this is in general not done. In most cases a hash is added to the Public Key for additional security (a hash makes your real number unknown when being shared). Adding a hash to your Public Key translates your Public Key to an Attrace account/wallet address.

Your Attrace wallet will automatically generate your Attrace account/wallet address once you have generated your Private Key.

Note: An interesting thing about blockchain tech: It is possible to derive a Public Key from a Private Key, so in the end it is all about one thing only: Your Private Key.

STEP 1: Go to https://wallet.attrace.com

STEP 1: Go to https://wallet.attrace.com

(Note: You will be automatically redirected to an Attrace node so your URL will change.)

STEP 2: Click on “Create Account”

STEP 2: Click on “Create Account”

After that, click on “Generate Key”.

You have now successfully generated your Attrace Private Key!

The Private Key is your secret password that allows you to enter your Attrace Wallet and (once live) your Attrace Account. It is vital that this Key is kept secret and safe at all times. Private Keys can be kept in computer files, but are also often saved on paper as a back-up.

Please note that:

  • Your Private Key stays client-side and NEVER leaves your device!
  • Attrace is blockchain tech, this means you cannot change your Private Key.

STEP 3: Assure you have saved your Private Key

STEP 3: Assure you have saved your Private Key

No matter what, NEVER lose your private key. If you lose your key you will lose your wallet / account and all ATTR tokens attached to it. We advise you to save the key as a PDF file (by clicking top right “Save as PDF” button). The PDF download will show the following:

Here it shows again: The Attrace wallet consist of 2 basic pillars:

  1. Your Attrace Private Key: This is basically your password (like the password of your online bank account). NEVER share your Private Key with anyone.
  2. Your Attrace Address: This is your public account/wallet number (like your bank account number). As mentioned in the intro: Your Attrace wallet will automatically generate your Attrace wallet/account address, which means in general you do not need to share your Public Key in order to receive tokens.

As a rule of thumb you could say: An account/wallet address is the hash of the Public Key. So when you have a Private Key, you can use that to derive the Public Key, which you can use to derive the account/wallet address. This is why you only need your Private Key backed up as everything else can be derived from it.

Hence, we have to place the disclaimer here:

WHATEVER YOU DO, KEEP YOUR PRIVATE KEY SAFE AND SECURE AT ALL TIMES.

ATTRACE IS NEVER RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DAMAGES CAUSED BECAUSE OF A PRIVATE KEY BEING LOST.

In order to receive tokens you only need to share your account/wallet address, not/never the Private Key, nor the Public Key. The Attrace wallet will generate your address automatically once signed in.

STEP 4: Sign into your Attrace Wallet

STEP 4: Sign into your Attrace Wallet

With your Private Key you can now sign into your Attrace Wallet.

Top right you will find the “Sign In” button, click this and you will be able to sign into your own account/wallet by using your Private Key (the key you have just generated and saved securely).

Copy paste your Attrace Private Key and you will enter your private Attrace wallet:

Click away the “x” congratulations or click “Go to wallet” and now you are in your wallet:

In the left box you will see your Attrace balance (ATTR balance).

The box on the right:

..shows your Attrace account/wallet address (the hash of your Public Key making your Public Key unknown when being shared to receive tokens):

We need you to share this account/wallet address with Attrace. It is this address that Attrace will use to send you your tokens.

Summary:

NEVER LOSE YOUR PRIVATE KEY

NEVER SHARE YOUR PRIVATE KEY

In general no need to share your Public Key

Only share your Attrace account/wallet address to receive ATTR tokens
