VeriCoin Wallet

Installation

Configuration

Usage

Backup

The wallet stores private key information in a file named wallet.dat. It contains:

  • keypairs for each of your addresses
  • transactions done from/to your addresses
  • user preferences
  • default key
  • reserve keys
  • accounts

The wallet.dat file is located in

 ~/Library/Application Support/vericoin/

Backup your wallet.dat in a secure place (USB drive, CD, ...).

Troubleshooting

This is the problem confirm you have no wake on demand features active https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201960

This causes the wallet to sleep it’s connectivity and wake it up but it wakes it up too late and stakes get orphaned By the way you are not losing interest once you get a good stake it will account for time since your last good one. The orphaned (?) stakes aren’t actually lost interest you can still get that interest in another stake.

So basically just unclick "Put hard disk to sleep when possible" and "Wake for Wi-Fi network access" and "Enable Power Nap while plugged into a power adapter".
