F.A.Q.
Computer wallet

A computer wallet is the most common way to manage your coins. Currently, wallets are available for Linux and for Windows. In the portable version working without installation and the version with the installer, which during installation will create icons in the menu or on the desktop to launch the wallet

At the first start, the wallet will create its working folder and a new wallet file. And immediately starts synchronizing with the network. In the event of synchronization errors, you can delete all files from this folder except wallet.dat (if you do not already have a backup, make it), and restart the wallet to re-synchronize the database with the network.

    For Linux "~ / .rivertscoin /"
The "Overview" tab shows the wallet balance: available for transfers and the total amount and several recent transactions
The "Receive" tab shows a list of your addresses, and there is also the opportunity to create more addresses. You can give different addresses to senders to track exactly who pays you.
On the "Sending" tab, you can send the transfer to a wallet to another user. In the simplest case, you just need to enter the recipient's address and the amount to be sent. Be careful when entering the recipient address, sent transfers cannot be canceled.
The tab "Transactions" shows a list of incoming and outgoing transactions (transfers).
On the "Address Book" tab, you can store addresses for translations with notes. You can also save the address in the address book if you specify a label when transferring from the sending tab.
