Wallet files

Upon creating an AEON Wallet, you will have 3 additional files in your aeon folder where simplewallet is stored. For this example, our wallet is called Wallace.

 

Those 3 files are your wallet:
– [walletName]
– [walletName].address.txt
– [walletName].keys

 

[walletName]

Contains the information of the blockchain (all transactions that have been done to and from your wallet). If you shutdown your simplewallet, delete this file and restart simplewallet, it will scan the whole blockchain to create this file again.

[walletName].address.txt

Textfile, that contains your public view key. You can use this public view key to receive balance. It is nice to have.

[walletName].keys

This file is the most important one, since it contains your actual wallet! Secure it well and have backups of it.
