ethkey is a tool written in rust coming from the openetherum project. The compiled binary contains modifications that print the checksummed address which is required for configuration.

Generate the wallet

On Windows

utils/windows/ethkey.exe generate random
secret: ecc73d25230fa2b8eb6f8d4a7786600ad9e19ce1c58a620fcad41d4eefa986bf
public: ae66dd48e2fbaba48954af77cb21ca78b9bc666609a00528604655f4e0aade060931151551736a2e70b6ca39e83d886c5a98db159be7ba847d7fab2633d394bb
address: 0x1602562d48d6Dee651D357f0111963431AdBca68

On Linux

utils/linux/ethkey generate random
secret: ecc73d25230fa2b8eb6f8d4a7786600ad9e19ce1c58a620fcad41d4eefa986bf
public: ae66dd48e2fbaba48954af77cb21ca78b9bc666609a00528604655f4e0aade060931151551736a2e70b6ca39e83d886c5a98db159be7ba847d7fab2633d394bb
address: 0x1602562d48d6Dee651D357f0111963431AdBca68
The value of address is attributed to the ADDRESS variable inside the config file, like this:
ADDRESS=0xF6fcb0C937F9Bd9761B92FF6cE4eE22CA1D7b75a
The secret represents the private key and is attributed to the PRIVATE_KEY variable inside the config file, like this:
PRIVATE_KEY=fd5b017ede91c5b68239012f43b76c1f422b29e09f6f77f84408006fdf82fc69
The content of the file 'config' at the end should be like this:
ADDRESS=0xf17f52151EbEF6C7334FAD080c5704D77216b732
PRIVATE_KEY=ec925a30a6c7408dae06fb6765f15474a5aa74a9fd5cb38fcfe112416b0c6476

Store the keypair

The keypair you are generating represent the identity of your client and you are fully responsible to keep it safe. Do not share this information, or store it unencrypted outside your client environment.

Funding the wallet

Various options exist to fund the wallet, depending on the network the Ethernity client runs on.

Testnet

The testnet is using bloxberg as blockchain infrastructure. The bloxberg faucet can be found at:
Just enter your wallet address (including 0x in front) in the form, fill the captcha and you will receive 0.2 bergs. 0.2 bergs is enough to run a few million transactions.
