Neon Wallet Tutorial
The Neo GUI us the NEO graphical user interface wallet that enables users to securely store their NEO, GAS and NEO assets, check their balances, send and receive tokens. Users can immediately access and transfer funds, as it is a light client.
Make sure to only download it from the official City of Zion Github (https://github.com/CityOfZion/neon-wallet/releases) and always check for the latest release.
Install the wallet and start it. A program will open where you can choose between seven different options. If you do not own a NEO wallet yet, clock „Create a new wallet“ to start the process.
On the next page you will need to choose a passphase that is used to encrypt your private key. Paste it in and continue to the next step.
After clicking on „Generate keys“, the you will be redirected to a page with your relevant wallet information. Make sure to securely store (or print) these. In order to access your account again in the future, you with either need the private key or the combination of encrypted private key and passphrase.
Click on „Back“ and return to the landing page.
Now you choose the option „Login using a private key“, paste the private key that you just stored in the field and login.
You will be directed to you user interface, where you can see how much NEO or GAS is on your public address and how much its equivalent in US-Dollar is. The QR code is also a copy of your public key (e.g. your deposit address to the account). On the right side you can see an overview of all transactions that have been made from this address. By clicking on the green button „Send“ you are enabled to transfer NEO or any other token.
A window will appear where you just have to paste the address to where you want to send the funds and the respective amount that you want to transfer to that address. Keep in mind that for any transfers on NEO you need GAS. GAS is automatically distributed on your wallet once you hold NEO in it. Therefore, you just need to wait for some time until you can claim the GAS and use it to pay for the transaction costs.
