Using the command line signing tool on Linux (Ubuntu)

This tutorial walks through using the claiming tool on Linux.

We will walk through an example signing process for BCD.  The same process would apply to all coins.

Part 1: Save the executable and data to your computer.

  • Create a folder somewhere on your computer.  For example /home/user/BCD.
  • From the claim page, download the executable and data by right clicking on the icons which look like this:
  • Choose Save Link As and save to your folder /home/user/BCD.  (screenshot from Firefox) Do this for both Claim data and Linux icons.
  • Your BCD folder should look like this.  If you right click on the white space, the context menu should appear.

Part 2: Open the command line interface and unpack

  • From the context menu, select Open in Terminal and the terminal should appear in the folder you had open
    • If you are not in the correct folder, then you must navigate to the folder using shell commands.
    • type  cd ~  to return home
    • type  cd BCD  to change to the BCD folder
  • type  ls  to view the contents in the terminal
  • type  tar -xvzf CoinpanicSign.tar.gz  to unpack the command line tool.  If that command doesn't work, try  tar xf CoinpanicSign.tar.gz 
    You should then see the following:

Part 3: Run the signing tool

  • Type  ./CoinpanicSign -s "enter your seed here"  and press enter.
  • The program will run and you should see the output signed transaction, which will look something like: (sensitive parts are hidden):
  • Copy the result by selecting the contents in the terminal and right clicking, and copy.
  • You can paste the results into a text file, or if you are able to, directly into the claim window.
  • Press Broadcast and wait.  The transmission could take up to 5 minutes, so please be patient while waiting for a response.

At this point, your claim will be complete.  Check your deposit address for your coins to appear.
