The value of address is attributed to the ADDRESS variable inside the config file, like this:
1
ADDRESS=0xF6fcb0C937F9Bd9761B92FF6cE4eE22CA1D7b75a

The secret represents the private key and is attributed to the PRIVATE_KEY variable inside the config file, like this:
1
PRIVATE_KEY=fd5b017ede91c5b68239012f43b76c1f422b29e09f6f77f84408006fdf82fc69

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.
