OWallet shared wallet features

1. Create shared wallet (using “sharetest” as an example)

Enter the shared wallet name, then enter the names of the copayers and their corresponding public keys to their wallets (the minimum of copayers is 2 and the maximum is 12).

Set the transaction rules for the shared wallet. This example has three participants, and two of them are required to make a transaction.

After you’ve created your shared wallet, the wallet home page will show information including the wallet address, ONT and ONG asset balance and the ONT balance price in USD, the shared wallet rule, the name of the participants and their individual wallet addresses, pending transaction information, completed transaction information, as well as send and receive functions for MainNet ONT.

2. Send assets with a shared wallet and signature sequence confirmation

On the shared wallet home page click “Send” to initiate a shared wallet transaction.

Select asset type, enter the asset amount and receiver address.

Select the shared wallet sponsor and drag to adjust the signature confirmation order. Please note that once the signature is confirmed, it cannot be changed. The sponsor is the first to confirm the signature, and the subsequent signatures must be signed in order. (In this example there are three wallet participants. After the first and second participants sign the confirmation the transfer is successful).

Confirm the signature sequence.

After the shared transaction is initiated it enters a pending state. After all required participants have signed the confirmation, the transaction can be completed and the balance and complated transactions will update.

3. Receive assets with a shared wallet
 
Click “Receive” to receive the shared wallet address which you can provide to others to receive transactions. Mobile wallets can directly scan the QR code.

4. Join shared wallet

Click “Join Wallet” and enter the shared wallet address. You can also use shared wallet addresses from ONTO.

OWallet Ledger features

Go to Ledger and click “Import Ledger”.

Set your wallet name and connect your Ledger hardware wallet to your computer. Once connected, you can use Ledger to manage your MainNet ONT more securely.
