Announcement: How to use the Matrix Web Wallet
A brief introduction to the Matrix Web Wallet. Full details available in the Matrix Web Wallet Manual.
Although many Matrix community members have already acquainted themselves with certain functions of the Matrix Web Wallet while staking Masternodes, the Matrix team has not yet formally introduced the Matrix Web Wallet and its many features. To rectify this fact, the Matrix team has prepared a handy “Matrix Web Wallet Manual”.
The Matrix Web Wallet
The Matrix Web Wallet enables several functions including native MAN token transactions, Masternode staking, AI transactions and Mainnet smart contracts. However, before engaging with these core features, you first need to create your own Matrix wallet address.
How to create and use a Matrix wallet address
Before engaging with Matrix Web Wallet, you should first download and the Matrix Web Wallet Manual from the Matrix website and create a Matrix wallet address. Creating a new wallet address is simply — you simply need to click “Create a wallet” on the wallet’s homepage.
How to back up the Matrix wallet address
After creating a new Matrix wallet address, you can back up your wallet by exporting a keystore, private key and/or a mnemonic. As the Matrix AI Network is compatible with several other chains, you can use your Ethereum wallet’s keystore or private key to open a Matrix wallet should you choose to do so. However, please note that you should only use the Matrix Web Wallet’s mnemonic login to open native MAN wallets.
How to use the Matrix web wallet
As mentioned, the Matrix Web Wallet enables several functions including native MAN token transactions, Masternode staking, AI transactions and Mainnet smart contracts.
MAN token transactions
After logging into your Matrix wallet address, you can transfer native MAN tokens in the “My Wallet” tab of the Matrix Web Wallet. Detailed instructions outlining how to transfer tokens are included in the Matrix Web Wallet Manual.
In order to run a Matrix Masternode, you must first stake tokens. Please refer to the Matrix Node Deployment Guide available for download on the Matrix website
The first batch of AI transactions are currently publicly online and available include Lung cancer diagnosis, pose detection and object detection. All are accessible in the web wallet’s “AI Application” tab. Please note that while pose detection and object detection services support simple images, the Lung cancer diagnosis function requires CT scans.
Mainnet smart contracts
Individuals can currently write smart contracts that will run on the Matrix AI Network in the wallet’s “Contracts” tab. These are not to be confused with auto-coding intelligent contracts.
How to secure your wallet
In order to protect your assets, the Matrix Web Wallet supports both online and offline modes. Whether in online or offline mode, the wallet functions remain the same. However, a significant difference occurs at the moment then a transaction is signed. Signing transactions while offline requires you to disconnect your network. While disconnected, your device signs the transaction using your private key. Once the transaction signature is complete, your device goes online and synchronizes the signature information.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. How can I cancel a transaction after it is sent?
If you selected “Real time transfer” when setting up your transfer, there is no way to cancel it. If you selected “Scheduled transfer,” your transaction can be cancelled anytime before the scheduled transfer time.
2. How can I view my transaction records?
After opening your Matrix wallet, you can click “Transaction Record” in the “My Wallet” tab of the web wallet to view the wallet’s transaction records. Using this method only displays the account’s local transaction information. If you want to view a more complete transaction record, you can search the wallet using the Matrix Blockchain Browser.
3. How to I know when I am supposed to disconnect my network and switch to the wallet’s offline mode?
When you reach a relevant step, a prompt will appear encouraging you to switch offline.
4. Can I still send other types of information as transactions?
Certainly. When initiating a transfer, you can add text, image or video information at the bottom of the transaction page. Any information included here will be delivered alongside the standard transaction.
Please be sure to carefully store and backup your keystore, private key or mnemonic. If you lose access to these, there will be no way for you to access your MAN tokens.
