You want to participate to zeta_brouzouf, our first testing currency?
Here are the details, step by step, on how to do this!
- Ubuntu 14.04 (might work on other versions or distributions, but does not work on Ubuntu 12.04)
2. Install ucoin CLI client
$ sudo npm install -g vucoin
3. Create your key
Creating your key is done by memorizing 2 things:
- a salt string
- a password
Choose whatever value you want for these, but be sure to memorize them. Also, try to have unique values (do not choose “abc” and “abc”), since keys are supposed to be unique and have enough entropy.
A good salt string could be your email address, and a good password could be a strong password.
Be cautious! These 2 strings can’t be changed thereafter. We are doing tests here, so this is no big deal. But just be aware of it.
4. Choose an identity
In uCoin, users are identified by ther
uid, a.k.a. User ID. For me, it will be “cgeek” for example.
You have to choose your own, so just do it and memorize it.
5. Publish your key + identity
salt your salt string of step 3.,
passwd your password of step 3., and
uid your personal identifier.
To publish your key + identity, use following command:
$ ucoin -h twiced.fr -p 9101 -c zeta_brouzouf --salt "<salt>" --passwd "<passwd>" self "<uid>" --send
<passwd> have to be replaced by your values.
6. Join the Web of Trust
This is a similar command, however the command is
join instead of
$ ucoin -h twiced.fr -p 9101 -c zeta_brouzouf --salt "<salt>" --passwd "<passwd>" join "<uid>" --send
7. Ask for signatures!
Now your identity + join membership should be on the server. But for your membership to be written in the blockchain, you will need at least 3 signatures from existing members. So, you are pleased to create a topic presenting you, your identity, and give “proofs” of identity ownership.
