This article is outdated and archived. If you want to get introduced to Safex TWM wallet - read more in this guide.
In this article you will learn about the different views of The World Marketplace Wallet which are the following ones: Home, Market, Merchant, Tokens.
Home: contains the Safex Cash (SFX) wallet, and a quick view to products
Market: pulls all of the product listings from the blockchain and displays them here, this is where you can buy new products
Merchant: here you can make a seller account and manage your offers and orders
Tokens: the Safex Token (SFT) wallet is here, as well as an interface for staking and unstaking tokens for collecting marketplace revenue earnings
After opening the TWM Wallet you can open an existing wallet file, create a new wallet, recover a wallet from keys or from a seed phrase.
Create New Wallet
We will start with the first step in joining The World Marketplace by creating a new wallet. After a file path and file name are chosen, you can connect the wallet to the blockchain network using the default url, another third party of your choice or your own node.
RPC Nodes (Connecting to the Blockchain Network) for the TWM Wallet
A list of running RPC nodes around the world can be found here. If you decided for the nearest node, you should copy + paste the node address into
daemon host field. In this example below, the wallet will connect to the RPC node in Amsterdam.
Choose a Password
A password has to be chosen and confirmed. Then the process is confirmed by clicking the Create Wallet field. NOTE: Remember that this is a one way password. Once you create it, you can not recover it by any means except to remember it.
An already existing wallet file can be opened by selecting the wallet file and providing the correct password for it. Suppose you already made a wallet and want to reopen it, then you would use this route.
Again, it can be decided which node the wallet should connect to.
After creating a new wallet or opening an existing one you will land on the Home page of The World Marketplace Wallet.
The Home page displays the public address ready to copy. This is where you receive Safex Cash and Safex Tokens on the Stagenet in this case. Stagenet Safex Tokens and Stagenet Safex Cash are needed for testing are handed out by the Safex community (you can also mine them). On this page (home page) the you can also send Safex Cash to other addresses.
After clicking Market a synchronization of data takes place for some time. Generally speaking, this will take the least amount of time if the wallet is connected to a node on the same machine. If the wallet is connected to the default RPC node or a third party RPC node, data synchronization will be the better the nearer the connected node is.
After complete synchronization the offers are rendered directly from the blockchain.
Hovering the mouse over the offer names will result in a display of the offer descriptions and a picture of the selected offer.
On this page, you are able to create new merchant accounts which are needed to create offers on the blockchain. Here, you can also manage your accounts (edit relevant information), create new offers and edit existing offers (change descriptions or stock numbers).
On this page, you can send Safex Tokens to other Safex addresses and manage the Token staking to participate in the revenue share system of The World Marketplace.
