EGC StakeBox Login Credentials
By default when your EGC StakeBox boots up it will ask you to login. Below is the login credentials for the operating system:
Connecting to Internet
Before we start working with the EGC wallet we must first make sure that we have an internet connection in order to download the blockchain and start staking. There are currently two options with the EGC StakeBox; firstly you can connect and ethernet cable from your router/switch or you can connect to your local Wi-Fi router using the built-in Wi-Fi.
To connect to your wireless router follow these steps:
In the command line type in the following command to access the Raspberry Pi Configuration menu:
You will see the following menu options. To connect to your Wi-Fi choose option "2 Network Options".
On the next menu screen choose "N2 Wi-Fi" to configure the Wi-Fi settings.
Enter your SSID which is the name of your Wi-Fi. It is important that you spell it exactly how it is on your router. Usually you can find the SSID name of your router on the reverse side if the physical router or in the documentation provided.
Now enter your unique Wi-Fi password to connect to your Wi-Fi and access the internet.
Once finished go back to the main menu and exit the Raspberry Pi configuration tool by selecting "Finish".
To confirm that you have successfully connected to your router you can enter the following command: ifconfig , where under "wlan0" you should see next to "inet" and IP address assigned by your router.
To test you have internet you can use the following command, where you should see a successful response:
Ethernet is as simple as connecting an Ethernet cable from your StakeBox to the back of your router, you should see a green light on the Ethernet port on your StakeBox to indicate that it has successfully connected. For Ethernet DHCP settings you will need to refer to your instruction manual for your router.
By default the evergreen coin damon will run when you boot up your StakeBox and you can issue commands using the "evergreen" command from the command line. If you close or stop the damon from running you can run it again with the following command:
You can stop it with:
sudo systemctl stop evergreencoind
Configuring your wallet
Encrypting your wallet is an important aspect of keeping everything safe. You can encrypt your wallet at any time but we recommend doing it at this stage in the guide. To do this you simply type in the following command replacing “yourpassword” with a password of your choice:
evergreencoind encryptwallet yourpassword
This will now begin to encrypt the wallet which in turn will restart the evergreencoin daemon. You should see the following output:
wallet encrypted; EverGreenCoin server stopping, restart to run with encrypted wallet. The keypool has been flushed and you need to make a new backup.
After encrypting your wallet, you can obtain your wallet address by typing the following into the command line:
evergreencoind getaccountaddress ""
You should see something like the following output
You can now send EGC coins to the address we just obtained from the evergreen core daemon. To check your transaction (incoming and outgoing) type in the following command:
First step is to make sure you can access your wallet otherwise you will not be able to stake. To decrypt your wallet type in the following command in the command line replacing password with the password you set to encrypt your wallet:
