How to create an secured account on your computer using the command line iWallet

2.1 To do this, first you need to install Go.

Linux, macOS, and FreeBSD tarballs:

Download the archive to homedirectory and extract it into /usr/local, creating a Go tree in /usr/local/go. For example:

 cd /home
sudo su —
(enter password)
 tar -C /usr/local -xzf go$VERSION.$OS-$ARCH.tar.gz

(Typically these commands must be run as root or through sudo.)

Add /usr/local/go/binto the PATHenvironment variable. You can do this by adding this line to your /etc/profile 

First, set Go’s root value, which tells Go where to look for its files.

sudo nano ~/.profile

At the end of the file, add this line:

export GOPATH=$HOME/work
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/go/bin:$GOPATH/bin

 You may need to restart all open terminal sessions for the changes to take effect.

2.2 Then we open the Terminal and install iWallet:

sudo su —
(enter password)

Git LFS (v2.5.2 or newer) is needed


Similar to Debian 7, Ubuntu 12 and similar Wheezy versions need to have a PPA repo installed to get git >= 1.8.2

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common to install add-apt-repository (or sudo apt-get install python-software-properties if you are on Ubuntu <= 12.04)

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:git-core/ppa

The curl script below calls apt-get update, if you aren’t using it, don’t forget to call apt-get update before installing git-lfs.

  1. curl -s | sudo bash
  2. sudo apt-get install git-lfs
  3. git lfs install


cd /usr/local/go

go get

Next, we import our account. To do this, we need to go to the directory with iWallet:

cd /usr/local/bin

Replace your_account_name and your_privkey with your real ones:

./iwallet account import your_account_name your_privkey -s

Next, we need some IOST coins. We fund the account with 100 coins. Transfer from Binance to account_name, without MEMO.

Increase the reserve of GAS, for this we will lay 30 IOST:

./iwallet --account name_of_your_account call 'gas.iost' 'pledge' '["name_of_your_account","name_of_your_account","30"]' -s

Let’s buy some iRAM:

./iwallet --account name_of_your_account call 'ram.iost' 'buy' '["name_of_your_account","name_of_your_account",1000]'-s

2.3 Create new account:

./iwallet --account name_of_your_account --amount_limit "ram:1000|iost:10" account create new_account_name --initial_balance 0 --initial_gas_pledge 10 --initial_ram 0 -s

View PrivKey and PubKey of new account:

./iwallet account view new_account_name -s
