    I’m running eleos 0.0.3 on macOS 10.12.2. There are no menu options for backing up or importing wallets. Can I do with Console commands?

      You could upgrade to the newest version. Or you can try your hand at command line. The applications are located in the mac directory of /Applications/eleos.app/Contents/Resources/app/

      command should be something like
      ./zcl-cli z_exportwallet “testwallet.txt”

      Here is what I did to export the wallet using command line on mac:
      Close eleos wallet

      open terminal

      cd /Applications/eleos.app/Contents/Resources/app

      mkdir export

      ./zcl-cli stop

      ./zcld-mac -exportdir=/Applications/eleos.app/Contents/Resources/app/export --daemon

      ./zcl-cli z_exportwallet "testwallet"

      ls export

    So I went through this tutorial first without really sending the coins. Wanted to be sure how it works.

    So of course I sent ZCL to ZEC address, because that’s how my wallet was after this tutorial. Maybe put a reminder in the end to change again to ZCL. It’s just very confusing after using Electrum and other wallets for ages. I just double checked the address like always, but didn’t cross my mind that my wallet was in the wrong mode, but after this tutorial it was. I guess my coins are gone for good.

    So maybe put a reminder to in the end of the tutorial to change back to ZCL. I’m only using it so it just messes things up, when you change it back and forth. Maybe it’s just me, but I think the wallet should have it show in a bigger font which coin is active. Confusing for a noob.

      sorry about that. Did you send it to a ZEC address you control? If so, you can export the ZEC keys and import to ZCL and the ZCL will show up.

      I will update the blog post – thanks for the suggestion.

    i downloaded and installed but when i start to run the wallet i get an error during the initializing phase saying the wallet daemon could not be found (windows 10 x64)

    also read on a steemit article that you are working on actually making sure ppl receive their zen even if they leave their zcl on bittrex. any truth to that?

      Not sure about the daemon not being found on windows.

      Yes, we are working to have Bittrex support to keep the ZCL on Bittrex. Should have an update in a few days.

      I had that SAME exact issue, turns out what windows and the installer are complaining about is rather easy to fix, you just have to find the cli files, blockops will know what I mean by that because I cant remember what the files are actually named, and it wants to see them in a particular folder on windows in the program directory, and its not seeing them there, thus the complaint its throwing… so just copy those 3 files into a folder you’ll need to make yourself and then that’ll fix the complaining… the files actually I can look up and then give more info.

      okay I’m on windows 7 x64 and for me, it was complaining that zcashd, zcash-cli and zcash-tx were not being found in program files (x86) and also not being found in program files directories on the C drive, so find those files and get them copied into a folder named Zclassic in those two folders and that SHOULD fix the complaining on windows side of things, it did for me at least.

      same thing goes for you, see my reply to the other person with this issue, it fixed it for me so see if it helps you both out, I think it might. at least assuming scenarios are fairly similar.

        Did you get this sorted? if so could you please let me know how.
        your saying the default install is wrong? and that we need to move files create new directories.

        I already have zclassic app on my machine and its working fine. this new zen app i downloaded the .exe and it installed it to “C:\Program Files (x86)\eleos” im not going to mess about with the zclassic files in case i loose my coins. cant they make an installer that works on windows.

    Sorry for stupid question – I’m new in all kind of this stuff)))
    I installed eleos wallet, it successfully made sinc.
    There are three buttons in the wallet: transparent address, reuse private address and private address. Which one should I use to transfer my ZCL from Bittrex to my wallet? And pls explain me what is the difference between these addresses and for which purpose each one of them. Many thanks in advance)))

      Use the transparent address to transfer from Bittrex to your wallet. Make sure you are in zclassic mode in the wallet first!

      Private addresses allow you to make transactions as well as include up to 512 characters in a message field.

      These transactions and the contents of the message field are completely encrypted the sender and the receiver and the amount in the message do not show up on the blockchain at all. The only thing that shows up on the blockchain is that a private transaction happened.

      You can send from a transparent address to a private address, from a private address to a transparent address, from a private address to a private address, and from a transparent address to a transparent address. It’s a very flexible system.

      The mathematical computation behind it is called the ZK-snark and you can research that to get more information.

    Hello, i am having a bit of trouble restoring my Zclassic wallet and balance itself after backing it up. I attempt to restore my wallet using the import wallet option using the saved eleos-wallet.tar file, however when it ask me to restart and i reopen the eleos wallet nothing has been restored and no funds are showing. It was only a minuscule amount of Zclassic, but concerning should i add any large amount to the wallet for the snapshot and Zen. I dont want to be in a position where i cant restore my wallet!! Any idea what the issue could be?

      On second thought, would i use the wallet.dat files possibly to restore my addresses and balance? I dunno, i am a bit lost here.

      You will be able to have both ZEN and ZCL. You will have the same amount of ZenCash in your wallet (after importing your Zclassic export_) as you had at Zclassic block 110,000

    I am trying to import my wallet.dat from Zclassic Wallet into ZEC in Eleo Wallet. The following error msg appear. The ZCL in my wallet.dat is before the 110,000 block, and is not stored in Eleo Wallet. Or how to import private address from my Zclassic Wallet into ZEC in Eleo Wallet? I have tried to send 10 ZCL from Zclassic Wallet after the 110,000 block to ZCL Eleo Wallet and do the backup and reimport into ZEC Eleo Wallet but I did not see any Zen Cash. Again, the ZCL I sent to Eleo Wallet is after the 110,000 block. Please help. Thank you.

      The Eleos wallet hasn’t been released officially yet, still in QA. Give it a few days and that should be ready. For now, we have Unix, Mac, and Windows command line wallets.

        thank you. Does it mean I can directly import my wallet.dat from Zclassic Wallet into ZEC Eleos wallet (without sending it to Eleos ZCL wallet and do a back up and reimport) when Eleos is ready in a few day?
        Thank you again!

          fixed that error with creating a .tar file with 7zip and putting the wallet.dat inside, as thats what eleos seems to do. also renamed my old wallet.dat from the zclassic wallet accordingly.

          But don’t get your hopes up, I don’t get the error any more, but I don’t get any zencash either…

    So I had a ZCL Windows Wallet – that isn’t Eleos. I should have just left it all on Bittrex, but that wasn’t announced until after I transferred the funds into the wallet. If I transfer the ZCL into the Eleos wallet it will be after block 110,000 and I will not get the credit towards ZenCash, correct? How am I able to get the keys set over to the Eleos Zen wallet? I am not super tech savvy.

      I had the same thing where my Zclassic was on a “none” Eleos wallet, But i still exported the wallet.dat Then i opened and used the “restore from zcl” in the menu of the new Eleos wallet that now supports Zen. and i got my zen now.

      I’m sure someone could explain this better and its a shame there is not more support for this sort of thing.

      Good Luck

        Tried this AGAIN on another computer to see if it was an issue with my PC. I get “A JavaScript error occurred in the main process”. The next line says “Uncaught Exception”. The wallet shuts down at this point. This has happened on two separate computers with the most recent version of the wallet. Can someone from the Zen team please help??

        Austin, you first need to use the latest version of Eleos version 0.0.5 if you have not done so yet.
        The new version will have Zclassic, Zcash, and ZENcash in the Set Coin tab. Then make a wallet.dat backup from your Zclassic Wallet (not the Eleos ZCL in your case). Run your Eleos 0.0.5 wallet to sync to 100% then click on File, choose Restore Zen from ZCL Wallet.dat

        You will then have your Zencash. Good Luck.

          So I attempted to do all of that, but the Zen wallet is currently getting stuck at “Loading Block Index” and just keeps clicking over with this message. If I change it to ZCL it will download all the information just fine, but nothing when it is over to Zen. Do I need to reinstall the wallet? I attempted uploading from the wallet.dat file and the wallet crashed the first time, not I am getting this issue.

      That time has passed. It was prior to block 110,000 which was a few weeks back. It was prior to the release of Zen on Bittrex.

        i didn’t mean that i meant to say does the 1-1 have an expiration date for eg if someone don’t grab their zen for say 5 years would it ever expire or will it always be there all you need to do is import the wallet with the pre block 110,000 zcl

    So I am going to try doing this again and see if I can get it figured out, but is there no support from Zen? Like a support email or anything? I can’t figure out how to contact anyone regarding this issue. Frustrated in showing my support by investing prior to the release and getting no love back to help me recoup my investment.
