`monero-wallet-cli` is the wallet software shipped in the Monero archives. It is a console program, and manages an account. While a bitcoin wallet manages both an account and the blockchain, Monero separates these: `monerod` handles the blockchain, and `monero-wallet-cli` handles the account.
This guide will show how to perform various operations with `monero-wallet-cli`. The guide assumes you are using the most recent version of Monero and have already created an account according to the other guides.

Checking your balance
Since the blockchain handling and the wallet are separate programs, many uses of `monero-wallet-cli` need to work with the @daemon. This includes looking for incoming transactions to your address. Once you are running both `monero-wallet-cli` and `monerod`, enter `balance`.
Output:
Currently selected account: [0] Primary account
Tag: (No tag assigned)
Balance: 7.499942880000, unlocked balance: 7.499942880000
In this example you're viewing the balance of your primary account (with index `[0]`). `Balance` is your total balance. The `unlocked balance` is the amount currently available to spend. Newly received transactions require 10 confirmations on the blockchain before being unlocked.
Sending monero
You will need the standard address you want to send to (a long string starting with '4' or a '8'). The command structure is:
transfer ADDRESS AMOUNT
Replace `ADDRESS` with the address you want to send to and `AMOUNT` with how many monero you want to send.
Receiving monero
If you have your own Monero address, you just need to give your address to someone.
You can find out your primary address with:
address
Since Monero is anonymous, you won't see the origin address the funds you receive came from. If you want to know, for instance to credit a particular customer, you'll have to tell the sender to use a payment ID, which is an arbitrary optional tag which gets attached to a transaction. It's not possible to use standalone payment addresses, but you can generate an address that already includes a random payment ID (integrated addresss) using `integrated_address`:
