Wallet Functionality

The Command Line Wallet offers a range of functionalities to manage your PVT-USD coins. Here are some key features:

Account Information

You can use the Command Line Wallet to retrieve information about your wallet and account balance. The account command provides details such as your wallet address, PVT-USD coin balance, and transaction history. It's important to note that the transaction history is only visible to the owner of the particular account, ensuring the privacy and security of your transaction data.

Sending Coins

To send PVT-USD coins to another wallet address, you can use the send command followed by the recipient's address and the amount to be transferred. Optionally, you can use a stealth or one-time address for the receiver to enhance privacy and security. Confirm the transaction details and enter your wallet password when prompted to complete the transfer.

Receiving Coins

To receive PVT-USD coins, simply provide your wallet address to the sender. For enhanced privacy and security, you can generate a stealth address which can be used for one-time transactions. The sender can initiate the transfer from their wallet to your stealth address, ensuring that each transaction is unlinkable to your main wallet address. The Command Line Wallet will automatically update your balance once the transaction is confirmed on the blockchain.

Wallet Backup and Recovery

It is crucial to back up your Command Line Wallet to ensure you can restore access to your funds if needed. The backup command allows you to create a backup file containing your wallet's encrypted private keys. Store this backup file in a secure location, preferably offline or encrypted storage.

To restore a wallet from a backup file, use the restore command and follow the prompts to enter the backup file's location and your wallet password.

Transaction History

The Command Line Wallet enables you to view your transaction history using the history command. This command displays a list of your past transactions, including details such as transaction IDs, timestamps, etc. It's important to note that the transaction history is only visible to the owner of the wallet due to the anonymity features of the PVT-USD coin, ensuring privacy and confidentiality of transaction data.

The Command Line Wallet also provides advanced functionalities for experienced users and developers. These may include interacting with smart contracts, deploying your own contracts, and accessing additional blockchain information. Refer to the Command Line Wallet's documentation or help commands for more details on these advanced features.
