Kondor is a browser-only extension wallet for Chrome and Brave. It behaves similar to metamask however it is only for use on the Koinos Blockchain. Kondor is created by Julian Gonzalez who is a community member of the HIVE blockchain and the Koinos Blockchain. Kondor is also open sourced.
STEP 1. DOWNLOAD KONDOR
Get Kondor by downloading it from the chrome store link above. Kondor does not have its own website, so the only other link source is through github.
STEP 2: CREATING A NEW WALLET
After you install Kondor, an extension link will be available. When you click this, itll open Kondor up for the frist time, click on “New Wallet” to begin.
STEP 3: CREATE OR IMPORT
If you have a wallet from Koinos CLI, MKW or a previous installation, you can import your 12 word seed phrase or private key to get started immediately. Otherwise, click on “New Wallet” to generate a new set of seed phrases.
STEP 4: RECORD YOUR SEED PHRASE
Make sure you save your seed phrase at this step!
If you copy this seed phrase onto your clipboard, do not click out of the window to paste it into a word processor or password manager. Doing so will close the Kondors setup menu and you’ll have to go back to step 2 to generate new phrases. Instead, copy this down via paper and enter a password to secure your wallet.
STEP 5: CONFIRM YOUR SEED PHRASE ORDER
Click the order in which your seed phrase was presented to you.
STEP 6: TEST RECOVERY YOUR WALLET!
At this point, your wallet is ready to go and you can begin using it immediately however, my recommendation is that you delete Kondor and recover it using your seed phrase manually. I’ve noticed that some people incorrectly write down their seed phrases and are unable to recover it when it matters the most! It is your choice if you want to do this step or skip it.
You can now begin using Kondor! If you want to try adjusting RPC settings to try test net, see below
OPTIONAL STEP 7: SETTINGS AND CONFIGURATION
To access your private key, use Kondor on testnet or to see your seed phrase, right click on the Kondor icon from your desktop and click options.
You’ll be presented with the following window below where you can enter your password to view your seed and private key, set chain ID or set RPC node.
If you want to try a dApp out on testnet, simply set the RPC node to the following address: https://harbinger-api.koinos.io and click “Set RPC Nodes”. Similarly, erase the Chain ID entirely, then click “Set Chain ID”. When restarting, Kondor will look for testnet and grab the test net chain ID.
To reset this back to main net, use the following RPC address: https://api.koinos.io and clear the chain ID back to blank and click the “set…” button.
That is it!
If you want to test net $KOIN or $tKOIN, you’ll need to use the faucet on Discord, or you can hit me up on twitter @kuixihe with your wallet address and I’ll send you some free test KOIN.
