How to use ICONEX on GOOGLE CHROME
Hi everyone, I enjoy making tutorials, I believe this helps regular people new users to get involve into crypto, adoption of crypto does make an impact in the long run since every day more and more new users come in.
YOU MUST NEVER GIVE OUT YOUR PRIVATE KEY OR BACKUP FILE TO ANYBODY SINCE THIS GIVES ACCESS TO THE FUNDS IN YOUR WALLET
Here a small tutorial from how to get install ICONEX WALLET Extension for GOOGLE CHROME so you can interact with ICX DAPPS, until yesterday I didnt know there were ICX DAPPS and so far so good, Im still reading about ICX but I can tell that DAPPS are fast and there is no need for freezing, bandwidth or having resources other than your wallet and the coins that you are willing to use with the DAPP. For this tutorial I show the entire process with wallet address and private key since this is just a wallet I create for the purpose of this tutorial only using a virtual machine I use to test all sort of applications crypto related.
1.Go to https://www.google.com/ and type in ICONEX CHROME EXTENSION on the search bar and hit enter, click on the first result that comes up ICONEX – Google Chrome or just click the following direct link, https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/iconex/flpiciilemghbmfalicajoolhkkenfel?hl=en/
2.After the ICONex chrome extension page loads up select Add to Chrome as on the next screen
3.Next a pop up comes up that gives you two options, Add extension or Cancel, we are going to select Add extension, see next image
4.After the installation two things will happen, a pop up message will come up saying that ICONex has been added to Chrome and a green icon will show up on top of the browser on the right hand as shown on the next image
5.Now lets click on that green icon (the ICX icon) and the wallet setup page will come up, this tutorial is to create a new wallet so please click on Create Wallet
6.Now we have to go through four steps to finish the creation and configuration of the ICONex Wallet, on the first step gives you the option to create an ICX or ETH wallet, since we want to use ICX DAPPS, select ICON (ICX) and click next
7.On STEP 2, input a name for your wallet it can be any name you would like either on caps or lower case with a maximum of 16 digits, after you type in the name for your wallet then type in a Wallet Password, the wallet password needs to be 8 characters including letters, numbers and special characters.
***DONT GIVE OUT THIS PASSWORD TO ANYBODY AND DONT LOOSE THIS PASSWORD***
Cofirm your password and hit Next to continue to STEP 3
8.On STEP 3 we will download the Keystore file, this is a backup file for your wallet that contains the encrypted private key to access your wallet in case you need to restore it on another computer, keep this file secure and dont share it with anybody. To download the Keystore file click on the button that says “Download Keystore file (wallet backup file)” and then click on the button that says Next
If you just try to click next a pop up message will come up as shown on next screen, its best for you to download the file as mention before
9.On STEP 4 we have the written private key, basically this private key is on the file you just download, you can copy this key and safe it on “Copy Private Key” or print it directly by clicking “Print Wallet”
If you select Print Wallet an image with your Wallet Address and Private Key will show up, YOU MUST NOT GIVE THIS INFORMATION TO ANYBODY since this is direct access to your wallet
Then Chrome will come up with the page to print this image, you can print it or save the file as pdf if you like
After this steps then just click on the Complete button shown at the bottom part of the screen
After all this four steps you have finish the configuration of your ICONEX wallet and the Wallet page will show up
Depending on the DAPP that you are going to use it may need you to login and it will ask for permission or may automatically login with your ICONEX Wallet, you need to send coins from the exchange to your wallet so a positive balance can show up.
As you can tell first my wallet name has a typo :p, but to get your ICONex wallet address and know your balance easy just click on the ICONex icon on the top right corner
If you click on the wallet address it will automatically copy the wallet address and if you click on Access My Wallet then will bring you to the ICONex Wallet Extension page
This is the procedure of how to install and configure your ICONex Wallet Chrome Extension, I hope this helps, if you have any questions feel free to leave a comment or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
