How do I create a SWT wallet/profile?

IMPORTANT UPDATE:

We highly recommend using the current version of the Swarm City DApp at https://swarm.city to create new accounts.

Swarm City version 1 was our first draft and is now considered extinct. However, it is still accessible for those who need to use the ARC to SWT conversion tool until we relocate this feature. This version currently has numerous known bugs and issues, and is not being further developed. 

Swarm City developers scrapped version 1 and rebuilt a new and improved version 2 that requires their full attention. Please use version 2 at https://swarm.city for optimal DApp performance.

For those who must visit the legacy site, go to https://legacy.swarm.city and select "Enter here".

With the first visit to the Terminal everyone must start by creating a new user. When creating a new user it is stored locally on the device.

If you have no tokens to convert then you can simply create a new wallet by creating a password and backup.  

  • Enter here 
  • Create new user 
  • Nope, don't have any
  • Create a password

If you previously created an ARC wallet. You will be able to load your ARC wallet and create a new vault for your tokens in the Terminal. 

If you have ARC tokens then you will have a few options to access your tokens and you will be prompted to exchange ARC to SWT as long as there is an ARC balance in your wallet. 

  • Enter here
  • Create new user
  • Yes, convert my tokens
  • Enter json or private key

All user profiles have an avatar, username, public wallet address, private key, and an account balance. Users can send/receive SWT tokens immediately after creating a new user. You can also make a backup, delete this user, and log out.

Personalize your account by clicking the profile picture and username. The user can upload a profile picture or take the picture with the camera in his device. The image can be cropped before saving.

Once you have created a profile, you can log in and out at will on the current device by entering your password only; unless you delete the user, use a new browser, or clear the browser cache. In which case, you can restore your wallet with a backup file.
