Web Wallet FAQ

1.What is a Secret Seed?
When you generate your Web-wallet, a Public Address and a Secret Seed will be given. The Public Address functions like a bank account number. You need somebody's Public Address in order to send BOScoin to that person and same thing vice versa. Your Public Address can be open to the public but you must keep your Secret Seed secret! This is the PIN to your account. It proves that you are you! Make sure your Secret Seed is stored somewhere safe and kept away from public eyes.
2.What happens if I lose my Secret Seed?
If you lose your Secret Seed, you will lose access to your Web-Wallet and even the developers of BOScoin will not be able to help you so DO be careful not to lose your Secret Seed.
3.Is it safe?
Yes, we have done our utmost to make the Web-Wallet as safe as possible and we are confident it will stay so. Nonetheless, keep your Secret Seed away from public eyes and DO NOT lose it.
4.In which browser will it work?
The Web-Wallet will run on IE10 and above but any other standard web browser should be ok.
5. When will mobile wallets be available?
Mobile wallets that can store BOScoin in any device will be available after MainNet launch. Although we cannot be certain on the exact date, it is more than definitely under way.
6.How do I send/receive BOS?
Sending and Receiving BOS will be quite easy. All you need is your Secret Seed and the Public Address of the person you wish to send it to. It will be quite intuitive. Please refer to the detailed instructions regarding our Web-Wallet.
7.Can I access the Web-Wallet with my mobile device?
If you access the Web-Wallet via PC mode, then yes, you can access your Web-Wallet with your mobile device.
8.Do I need to log in to boscoin.io to access my Web-Wallet?
No. The Web-Wallet and our homepage are not linked in that sense. You do not need to log in to our homepage to access your Web-Wallet. All you need is your Secret Seed.
9.How can I receive my BOScoin from my dashboard to my Web-Wallet?
Before Tokennet launch, you will receive an e-mail from us notifying you to generate your Web-Wallet and send us your Public Address via e-mail. We will send BOScoins to your wallet according to your contribution so make sure you send us the right Public Address. Meanwhile, to avoid any misunderstanding, the dashboard is merely a display of how much you will receive. They are not the actual coins.

BOScoin Tokennet Wallet FAQ

1.How many wallets can I create?
You can create up to 100 Wallets, and your Contact list can have up 100 Contacts.
2.Should each wallet have a different Password?
No, you can set the same Password for every Wallet.
3.What is Recovery Key?
We only have a Secret Seed to secure and access the Web Wallet. However, we decided to add Recovery Keys and Passwords for the BOScoin Tokennet Wallet to add security and the ability to securely Recover Wallets. Recovery key is encrypted 'Secret Seed' via rock-repelling algorithm, which increases security in terms of 'Secret Seed' management.
4.Isn't it confusing to have a Recovery key and a Password? The Web Wallet only requires entering the Secret Seed.
It's much safer and better security. Passwords must be remembered because they are used for 'sending'. Since the Recovery Key is an encrypted version of the 'Secret Seed,' you must have the password, which adds another layer of security.
5.What if I lost my password but know my 'Secret Seed'?
In this case, the 'Secret Seed' will restore your wallet. Enter the 'Secret Seed' and enter 'New password' to obtain 'New recovery key'.
6.Can I retrieve my Password if I lose them?
You CAN NOT retrieve your password if you lose or forget them. You may change your password though.
7.If I reset my Password, does Recovery Key also changes?
Yes, if you change your Password, you must backup the new version of your recovery key.
8.Currently the BOScoin Web Wallet does not require a Password when 'Sending'; why does the BOScoin Tokennet Wallet require a password?
BOScoin Tokennet Wallet requires more security than the Web Wallet. You must set and remember the password when sending from the BOScoin Tokennet Wallet.
9.Why do I need to send more than '0.1 BOS' to open a valid account? And if I send less than I'm suppose to, do I still lose 0.001 BOS for the transaction fee?
BOScoin is only able to open a new account by transferring 0.1 BOS from another account.
Yes, many believe 0.1 BOS is the minimum amount for keeping an account open
10.Do you ever lose a transaction fee?
Yes, you do. If you send BOScoin to an account that doesn't exist or any insufficient transaction will occur the lost of transaction fee. The failed transfer results in a fee being charged, which works as a basic device to properly prevent reckless creation of accounts and false requests.
11.I noticed the Sending was completed on my BOScoin Tokennet Wallet, but the receiving party didn't receive BOScoin. Where should he check?
If there is a sudden increase in transactions on the network, it can be delayed or sometimes the remittance fails. You can track transaction on https://explorer.boscoin.io
12.If the app is deleted, will the information in my Contacts be deleted?
Yes, both the information in the Contacts and the Wallet information will all be deleted. Your wallet can be restored by 'Import Wallet', however, the information in your Contacts cannot be recovered.
13.Can't I "import Wallet" even if it's in my wallet?
No, if you already have a wallet in 'My Wallets', you cannot 'Import Wallet'.
