The Qtum web wallet runs in your browser and connects to the Qtum network through a full node interface. The web wallet does not store your private keys so you must manage those with a downloaded Key File or seed words. This is completely your responsibility.
The web wallet may be launched by navigating to the site listed above and clicking on the
Scroll down and click the large blue
Visit Website button:
Upon loading the web wallet, we get this very important warning, please take a few seconds and read it.
Welcome to the Qtum web wallet! As shown below the left panel gives a menu with various options to create or restore a wallet, and other actions. The top of the menu gives seven choices for creating or restoring a wallet. The bottom of the menu gives various operations and configuration choices. The center part of the wallet page presents forms for data entry, viewing and management of the wallet assets.
The menu option
Settings will allow selection of language and setting the wallet to work on Mainnet or Testnet. Select the desired network before restoring a wallet or entering a password.
There are 7 ways to generate or restore a wallet.
- Generate new Wallet creates a new address and downloads a Key File
- Create from Mnemonic creates 12 seed words and a new address
- Restore from Mnemonic restores an address using 12 seed words from a desktop wallet
- Restore from WIF restores an address from a private key
- Restore from Mobile Wallet restores an address from 12 seed words from a compatible mobile wallet
- Restore from Key File restores an address from a Key File created by the web wallet
- Restore from Ledger uses a Ledger hardware wallet to sign and verify transactions

Next click the large green button to download the Key File:
The Key File will download to your computer, save the file in a location you can find again and back up the file offline. The key file name will have a format like "1529379436736.txt" where the long number is the file creation time as Unix epoch time in milliseconds. You will need this Key File and the password to reload the wallet. If you lose the Key File or password, the funds in your wallet will be lost.
The View Wallet Info page will appear for your wallet where you can see:
- Address - receiving address for the wallet

CONFIRM. The wallet will create a new address from 12 random seed words:
Please write down and save these seed words, only you as the wallet user have access to these seed words (seed words and private keys aren't stored on the server, if you lose these seed words you'll lose access to your funds!).
Next you have to enter the seed words manually to confirm you have saved them. Click on the blue button
I HAVE REMEMBERED ALL. LET'S CHECK, enter your password, re-enter the seed words and click the green

After entering a new password, you will see the View Wallet Info page. Verify that the expected address was created. You may want to back up the wallet using the menu option
Dump As Key File.
This choice allows restoring the wallet from a Wallet Input Format (WIF) private key such as from the web wallet, Qtum Core wallet or Qtum Electrum wallet. A WIF private key will be 52 characters long and has error checking and encoding (to reduce size) as compared with an original private key, which will be 64 hexadecimal characters.
Copy the WIF private key from another wallet. Select the menu option

The View Wallet Info page will be displayed. Verify you restored the expected address. You may want to back up the wallet using the menu option

To use your Ledger Nano S or Ledger Blue with Qtum, you will first need to run the Ledger Manager and install the Qtum app on your Ledger using these instructions: https://support.ledgerwallet.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003776913-Install-and-use-Qtum-QTUM-
On the web wallet select the menu option
Restore from Ledger, plugin your Ledger, and on the Ledger enter the PIN code and open the Qtum app, then on the web wallet Restore from Ledger page click the red
On the next Restore from Ledger page, click on the green padlock icon to select the default path:
On the Default path m/44�/88�/0�/0 page choose the address you want to use by clicking on the green padlock icon on that row. This will probably be the top row unless you made other address choices in the Ledger Live wallet.
The View Wallet Info page will be displayed. Notice that using the Ledger there is not the option to see or copy the private key because the Ledger hardware wallet manages the private keys and does not send them to your computer. The
Restore from Ledger option is not available for Testnet.
You can send QRC20 tokens to an address managed by the Ledger wallet, such as Ledger Live, but the Ledger wallet does not currently (August 2018) allow display or management of QRC20 tokens. You can use
Restore from Ledger with the web wallet to display and manage QRC20 tokens held in your Ledger address, in which case the View Wallet Info page will show these tokens:
You can receive coins for the web wallet by sending them to the address of the wallet. Before you send any coins to the wallet make sure you can close and reopen the wallet with the same receive address. Using the menu option
Dump as Key File and
Restore from Key File is a safe way to do this. Using the menu option to restore from seed words to reopen the wallet is riskier because entering a typo for the seed words or password will create an unexpected random address.
On the View Wallet Info page click on the blue address
COPY button and then paste this address as the receiving address in the sending wallet or account, and then send the coins. Wait a few minutes for the next block to be published and reload the web wallet to see the new balance. You can also click on the menu option
View Wallet Txs to see the receiving transaction:
From your receiving wallet or account, copy the receiving address. On the web wallet menu, click
Send and paste the receiving address into the Address* field, then enter the amount to send in the Amount* field. You can leave the Fee field set at the default of 0.01 (or set a lower fee if you understand how to do this) and click the green
The Please enter address again (Double check) page will be displayed. Copy and paste the receiving address into the Address field and click the blue
The You are going to send� page will be displayed, after verifying the information click the blue
At the bottom of the screen you will see the green confirmation bar with a link to show the transaction in the Explorer:
The View Wallet Info page will display an Unconfirmed balance for the amount being sent (+ fee).
After the transaction is published in the next block you can reload the wallet to see the updated balance and also see the transaction using the menu option
View Wallet Txs.
If you haven't done this, make sure you can back up the wallet using menu option
Dump as Key File, and then reopen to the same address using
Restore from Key File.
To receive QRC20 tokens, on the web wallet View Wallet Info page and copy the Address field by clicking the blue
COPY button, paste this address into the sending wallet or exchange, and send the tokens. After the next block publishes, reload the wallet to see the tokens:
To send QRC20 tokens you must have sufficient QTUM coins in the address tied to that token. The web wallet default fee for sending tokens is 0.00000040 gas price x 250,000 gas = 0.1 QTUM plus the default transaction fee of 0.01 QTUM, for a total fee of 0.11 QTUM. You can use these default values unless you understand how to set lower values, but don't worry, any excess gas will be refunded as a mined amount (the mined amount must mature for 500 blocks before it can be sent or used for gas/fees).
The web wallet will has built-in capability for popular QRC20 tokens, and you can add additional tokens by entering the token�s smart contract information. For example, if you want to add the XYZ token, find that token on the explorer qtum.info, copy the contract Address Hash field:
On the web wallet select the menu option
Send, click the drop down next to "QTUM", scroll to the bottom of the Coin/Token list and click the
Paste the Address Hash copied from the Explorer into the Token Contract Address field and click the blue
The contract details should be displayed on the Token page, verify and click the
CONFIRM button to add this token to your wallet. The new token will be available in the wallet for 30 days, after which you can add it again if needed.
