Registration

Browse to the webwallet url at : https://lux.poswallet.io

You can register using a google account, or create an account using your email address.

After filling out all the fields, you will receive a confirmation email to complete your registration.

A verification code will be send to your email address.

After following the instructions in the email, your account has been created.

Login & Security

Login to the web wallet.

You are now greeted with the dashboard of your wallet. To setup 2FA, click on your email address in the top right corner and select settings.

Select 2FA and use FreeOTP or Google authenticator to setup 2fa.

Make sure you backup your 2FA backup key and enable 2fa by entering the one-time password provided by the application to activate. From now on, after you login, you will be prompted for your one-time password.

Safety

Please make sure your web wallet is protected with 2FA at all times ! Do not forget to backup the 2FA backup key incase your mobile fails or is lost.

In addition to (optional) 2FA, the web wallet also requires email verification when sending coins or exporting a private key.

Dashboard tab

The dashboard is the first page you see when you login and provides you with a lot of information.

Balance: This shows your current balance available for spending (the arrow in the top right can make it swap between LUX / USDT / BTC)
Staking: The balance that is currently staking
LUX Value: Current LUX value (Cryptopia)
POW Difficulty: Shows the difficulty of the last mined POW (Proof-of-Work) block
POS Difficulty: Shows the difficulty of the last mined POS (Proof-of-Stake) block
Addresses: Shows the amount of addresses assigned to the wallet, more on that in the addresses tab.

Recent Transactions shows transactions in the last 10000 blocks. Minted coins are coins that have been generated by staking. Mousing over the time gives more details on the maturity of the transaction. The txid can be clicked and will open the explorer showing the tx details.

Addresses tab

Your new wallet comes with a fresh address, you can use the "Create new" button to create additional addresses.

Types of addresses

After importing/exporting private keys, your addresses pane might also show a Sxxx (segwit) address in addition to your Lxxx (Legacy) address. Those are linked and share the same private key. We advice you to use the Lxxx for normal wallet operations.

Send tab

The default screen is very straight forward:

To: enter the LUX address here that you want to send LUX to
Amount: enter the amount you want to send
Fee: You can increase the fee to have the transactions processed faster, keeping this default is usually fine.
One-time Code: Enter your authenticator code here (if enabled)

The standard send option does not allow you to choose the source of the coins (if you have multiple addresses with coins) or allow you to manually set the change address.

Coin Control:

With coin control enabled you can influence which coins are used, and where the change goes.

Inputs: Allows you to select the source address
Change Address: This allows you to select an existing address as the change address instead of the wallet creating as new one.

For a video walkthrough of the Coin Control features look here

Change addresses

Within the blockchain space, you need to be aware of change addresses otherwise this could lead to lost funds. You can read more about change addresses here.

Import/Export tab

The Import/Export tab enables you to add/remove/backup private keys.

Import private key: You can import a private key here. To learn how to export the private key from your QT wallet, check here.

Export private key: This option allows you to export/delete your private key

LUX address: Select the address you want to export or export&delete here.
Export Private Key: This option only exports the private key (for example for backup purposes)
Export & Delete Private Key: This option exports AND deletes the private key from the server. After using this option the corresponding addresses are removed from the web wallet.
One-time Code: Enter your authenticator code here (if enabled)

FAQ

Can I run both QT and Web Wallet at the same time?

Yes, but with one caveat, change addresses. When you send coins from any wallet, change
addresses get created (unless you pick a address known to both wallets as a change address) . Those change addresses do not automatically import into other wallets. So ideally you should stick with 1 wallet otherwise your balances might differ.

How do I backup my wallet? I don’t have access to my wallet.dat anymore

You export your private keys and store them offline. Password managers with
encrypted databases and 2-factor authentication are useful if you want to keep
them online. For more information on exporting the private key, look here.

Why am I not staking my whole balance?

Your coins need to mature on the blockchain for 36h to automatically stake. Once
you hit a stake, all the coins involved in that stake need to re-mature. During that
time your staking number will reflect that. For more details on that process look here.

Why did the web wallet make a transaction on its own ?

To optimize the web wallet infrastructure and optimize your coins for staking, the web wallet will regularly (every 15 days) group up small inputs (from example from mining) to optimize for staking.
