2.) Install wizard – choosing a Host

Follow the download wizard to install the appropriate software as listed above. When you open the program, you’ll see the option of running the full node or the light node.

It’s best to start by using the light node. Click on the “light node” option. These instructions will continue down the light node path.

Only advanced users should run a full node. Full nodes must have 24/7 uptime and find + maintain 7-9 healthy neighbors.

3.) What is my seed?

Think about your seed as the combined username and password that grants access to your bank account. With your seed, you’ll be able to use that seed to login to any IOTA client on any device in the world! As long as you save your seed, you’ll have access to your IOTA balance associated with that seed.

Don’t ever lose it!


 

4.) Generate a seed

Generate a random 81 character seed, using only A-Z and the number 9. It is imperative that your seed be an 81-character random assortment of A-Z and 9.

With our SSL encoded tool you can generate a secure random seed.

Visit .. → IOTA seed generator

On the seed generator page, move your mouse/device to collecting entropy and generate your own seed. (Until 100%)

After your seed is generated, copy it and login into your iota wallet! Make sure you save the seed in a secure location. As long as you save your seed, you’ll have access to your IOTA balance associated with that seed.
