Syncronize the EverGreenCoin blockchain

After you have your software

After you have your EverGreenCoin software, you must synchronize with the EverGreenCoin network. The process of synchronizing brings your software up-to-date and can take many hours, even days on slow connections, to complete.

A faster way to synchronize

By a process called a 'snapshot' you can download one large file that contains the entire individual EverGreenCoin blocks that make up the EverGreenCoin blockchain.

Merchant services

Coin To Pay.com

A solution that may suit you better if you are a merchant planning to accept EverGreenCoin in a brick-and-mortar store or your own website / webstore is an online merchant solution, such as CoinToPay.com

It is worth mentioning again, and understanding, that online services the hold a large number of coins are an attractive target for hackers. Your EverGreenCoin holdings are at a greater degree of risk with such services, though these services do have stringent security policies.

CoinToPay.com has plugins for many Content Management Systems (CMS) and other ecommerce solutions. EverGreenCoin staff has helped merchants get setup with CoinToPay and would be very happy to help you get your business accepting EverGreenCoin. CoinToPay does charge a 1% fee for incoming transactions and does not stake your EverGreenCoin for you.

Paper

EverGreenCoin Paper Wallet

It is possible to paperize your EverGreenCoin much like the bank notes, or bills, you are familiar with from fiat money. While this is perfectly safe to do and, in many ways, is safer than using any online EverGreenCoin software because it is not attached to the Internet. However, EverGreenCoin kept on a paper wallet will not collect any interest because it is paper and therefore cannot help process or secure the EverGreenCoin blockchain.

Note on exchanges

Many EverGreenCoin users will leave their EverGreenCoin at an exchange. This is extremely unadvisable.

Leaving your EverGreenCoin at an exchange is not only risky, you will get 0% interest because no exchange will stake your EverGreenCoin for you. Please be smart and safe with your EverGreenCoin and do not follow this practice. If you are a trader or plan to try trading for profit with your EverGreenCoin, only leave the amount you need for your trading at the exchange and stake the rest using one of the above mentioned options.

Next Steps...

You can optionally verify your account. The EverGreenCoin Foundation will send a small amount of EverGreenCoin to your EverGreenCoin address. This is done to help you gain familiarity with the EverGreenCoin software. These automated payments are sent at approximately midnight Eastern Standard Time and you may return daily as often as you wish.
