NXT WALLET
« on: June 12, 2017, 12:05:10 am »

Hello all! New to NXT and the community. I downloaded the NXT Wallet. I am wanting to send my NXT from an exchange to the wallet. I see a toggle to send NXT on the Dashboard but no toggle to receive providing an address. Can you send NXT to this wallet?
Thank you!

 :)

Hello Pistolz, welcome to NxtForum.

Nxt does not work like the classic cryptocurrency wallet (like Bitcoin) you might be used to. Mostly because Nxt does not work using the inputs/outputs transaction scheme that Bitcoin and other coins use. Instead of generating multiple addresses that will be stored in a wallet.dat type of file, in Nxt there is no wallet file. Every different passphrase introduced leads to a single Nxt address, the NXT-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXX account number you see in the upper left of the dashboard after you access your Nxt Wallet. That is the permanent address where you can receive NXT or any assets running currently in the Nxt platform, like ARDR.

You could of course create many Nxt addresses if you want, but for that you'll need to generate a new passphrase (a new private key) for every new address you want to use.

Thank you for the reply! I will give it a shot. I understand there may be airdrops in the future. Will this wallet qualify for airdrops? Thank you for your time!

Reviewing other posts it appears that a 12 word seed phrase should have been generated for my account? In creating the account I was prompted to create a master password which I did. Is the same as the seed phrase? I did not use 12?

I think there's a confusion here between the Nxt Client (core development) and the MyNxt Online Wallet (third party service).

When I read in your first post that you had downloaded the Nxt Wallet I thought you meant the official Nxt Client, which is downloaded to your computer. The Nxt Client will generate automatically a 12-word passphrase you can use to create a new account. A "Master password", instead, is used in the MyNxt online wallet to encrypt the private key (the actual seed/passphrase) of the user account. You can also use this master password to download and decrypt a copy of the passphrase for the account you access there, if you ever want to operate the same account using the core Nxt Client. But your account The MyNxt online wallet is run through your web browser with no download.

So there is no confusion my wallet is opened at this address wallet.mynxt.info/dashboard.
1) Can I send my NXT from an exchange to Your Nxt Address being NXT-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx ?
2) Does this wallet qualify for an airdrop of the ignis or do I have to download the client you referred to?

Thank you

1) Yes
2) the MyNxt online wallet qualifies for the Ignis snapshot. If you ever want to access the Nxt account you use in the MyNxt online wallet using the core Nxt Client, for instance to access features that the MyNxt online wallet does not have, instructions are here.
