    • Choose ‘Display’ instead if you want to see the commands in the script beforehand
  • The Public Testnet Wallet password is ‘publictestnet’
    • Please do not drain this wallet. Just transfer a few coins to your own testnet wallet.
  • All progress including testnet wallets you created are lost after shutdown/reboot unless you backup
    • If you want to practice wallet backup/restore, KeePassXC and Rclone are included
  • Report CLI wallet bugs/issues here

How was this created?

  1. I installed Ubuntu MATE 16.04.3 LTS (Xenial) using VirtualBox
  2. I customized the environment and used snapshots to save/rollback my progress along the way
  3. When I got it the way I liked, I used Pinguy Builder to create the ISO of the running environment
