This is the Wallet overview.

  1. your Ethereum Accounts. you need at least one to receive Ethereum.
  2. Wallet Contracts. Think of them as subaccounts
    Tip (from Wallet): Most exchanges don’t support receiving ether from a contract wallet yet. Be sure to move the money to an account address first!
  3. Latest Transactions – only subaccount Transactions are shown currently. (don’t ask me why – Explanation Here)

This is the Contracts Overview.

You can create your own Token, and follow other custom Tokens by clicking “Watch Contract”.

You need the Contract Address and the Interface in order to follow a Token.

Test it!

  1. Click “Watch Token”
  2. Token Contract Address: 0x87148e1E98a69adf4A4fB27344baF9c08D533442

Comment with your Ethereum Address if you want some favs.pw Tokens!

That’s it for the short overview, make sure to test around. try to send Ethereum, and play around with Tokens 🙂
