English Chinese (Simplified)
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`:
Random payment ID: <82d79055f3b27f56>
Matching integrated address: 4KHQkZ4MmVePC2yau6Mb8vhuGGy8LVdsZD8CFcQJvr4BSTfC5AQX3aXCn5RiDPjvsEHiJu1TC1ybR8pRTCbZM5bhTrAD3HDwWMtAn1K7nV
This will generate a random payment ID, and give you the address that includes your own account and that payment ID. If you want to select a particular payment ID, you can do that too. Use:
integrated_address 82d79055f3b27f56
Payments made to an integrated address generated from your account will go to your account, with that payment ID attached, so you can tell payments apart.
Using subaddresses
It's suggested to use subaddresses (starting with `8`) instead of your main address (starting with `4`) to receive funds. Run:
address new [<label text with white spaces allowed>]
This will generate a subaddress and its optional label, which addess you can share to receive payment on the account it's linked to. For example,
address new github_donations
