Development Wallet Configuration

Remvault are repositories of public-private key pairs. Private keys are needed to sign operations performed on the blockchain. Remvault are accessed using remcli.

Step 1: Create a Default Wallet

To create a wallet use command remcli wallet create. If using remcli in production, it’s wise to instead use --to-file so your wallet password is not in your bash history. For development purposes you can use --to-console.

$ remcli wallet create --to-console

remcli should return you a password:

Creating wallet: default
Save password to use in the future to unlock this wallet.
Without password imported keys will not be retrievable.


Created Default wallet will be saved to ~/eosio-wallet/default.wallet.

Step 2: Open and Unlock Wallet

Wallets are closed by default when starting a remvault instance. To begin, run the following:

$ remcli wallet open

Now, that your wallet is open, you’ll need to unlock it by using password that we generate below. To unlock your wallet, enter following command:

$ remcli wallet unlock

Than, enter the password.


You can use flag --password and unlock wallet by command:

$ remcli wallet unlock --password PW5JKxKgwfjVeDL7Reqg9RcHn**********Qkg9Taev5S1EKAduff

The console prints out that your default wallet is unlocked: Unlocked: default

Step 3: Generate a private key

The following command will generate a private key.

$ remcli wallet create_key

Step 6: Import the Development Key

$ remcli wallet import

You’ll be prompted for a private key, enter the rem development key provided below


It will return something like:
