A STRAKS wallet is as simple as a single pairing of a STRAKS address with its corresponding STRAKS private key. Such a wallet has been generated for you in your web browser and is displayed above.

To safeguard this wallet you must print or otherwise record the STRAKS address and private key. It is important to make a backup copy of the private key and store it in a safe location. This site does not have knowledge of your private key. If you are familiar with PGP you can download this all-in-one HTML page and check that you have an authentic version from the author of this site by matching the SHA256 hash of this HTML with the SHA256 hash available in the signed version history document linked on the footer of this site. If you leave/refresh the site or press the "Generate New Address" button then a new private key will be generated and the previously displayed private key will not be retrievable. Your STRAKS private key should be kept a secret. Whomever you share the private key with has access to spend all the STRAKS associated with that address. If you print your wallet then store it in a zip lock bag to keep it safe from water. Treat a paper wallet like cash.

Add funds to this wallet by sending STRAKS to your STRAKS address.

Check your balance by going to straks.info and entering your STRAKS address.

Spend your STRAKS by importing your private key to any of the STRAKS wallets available for download at straks.tech. Keep in mind when you import your single key to a wallet and spend funds your key will be bundled with other private keys in the wallet. When you perform a transaction your change will be sent to another STRAKS address within the same wallet. You must then backup the wallet and keep it safe as your remaining STRAKS will be stored there.

Why should I use a Bulk Wallet to accept STRAKS on my website?
The traditional approach to accepting STRAKS on your website requires that you install the official STRAKS client daemon ("bitcoind"). Many website hosting packages don't support installing the STRAKS daemon. Also, running the STRAKS daemon on your web server means your private keys are hosted on the server and could get stolen if your web server is hacked. When using a Bulk Wallet you can upload only the STRAKS addresses and not the private keys to your web server. Then you don't have to worry about your STRAKS wallet being stolen if your web server is hacked.
How do I use a Bulk Wallet to accept STRAKS on my website?
  1. Use the Bulk Wallet tab to pre-generate a large number of STRAKS addresses (10,000+). Copy and paste the generated comma separated values (CSV) list to a secure text file on your computer. Backup the file you just created to a secure location.
  2. Import the STRAKS addresses into a database table on your web server. (Don't put the wallet/private keys on your web server, otherwise you risk hackers stealing your coins. Just the STRAKS addresses as they will be shown to customers.)
  3. Provide an option on your website's shopping cart for your customer to pay in STRAKS. When the customer chooses to pay in STRAKS you will then display one of the addresses from your database to the customer as his "payment address" and save it with his shopping cart order.
  4. You now need to be notified when the payment arrives. Google "STRAKS payment notification" and subscribe to at least one STRAKS payment notification service. There are various services that will notify you via Web Services, API, SMS, Email, etc. Once you receive this notification, which could be programmatically automated, you can process the customer's order. To manually check if a payment has arrived you can use Block Explorer. Replace THEADDRESSGOESHERE with the STRAKS address you are checking. It could take between 10 minutes to one hour for the transaction to be confirmed.

    Unconfirmed transactions can be viewed at: http://blockchain.info/
    You should see the transaction there within 30 seconds.
  5. STRAKS will safely pile up on the block chain. Use the original wallet file you generated in step 1 to spend them.

Step 1 Public Key:

Copy and paste the above into the Your-Part-Public-Key field in the Vanity Pool Website.
Step 1 Private Key:
Copy and paste the above Private Key field into a text file. Ideally save to an encrypted drive. You will need this to retrieve the STRAKS Private Key once the Pool has found your prefix.

Your STRAKS Private Key is a unique secret number that only you know. It can be encoded in a number of different formats. Below we show the STRAKS Address and Public Key that corresponds to your Private Key as well as your Private Key in the most popular encoding formats (WIF, WIFC, HEX, B64).

STRAKS v0.6+ stores public keys in compressed format. The client now also supports import and export of private keys with importprivkey/dumpprivkey. The format of the exported private key is determined by whether the address was generated in an old or new wallet.

How do I make a wallet using dice? What is B6?
An important part of creating a STRAKS wallet is ensuring the random numbers used to create the wallet are truly random. Physical randomness is better than computer generated pseudo-randomness. The easiest way to generate physical randomness is with dice. To create a STRAKS private key you only need one six sided die which you roll 99 times. Stopping each time to record the value of the die. When recording the values follow these rules: 1=1, 2=2, 3=3, 4=4, 5=5, 6=0. By doing this you are recording the big random number, your private key, in B6 or base 6 format. You can then enter the 99 character base 6 private key into the text field above and click View Details. You will then see the STRAKS address associated with your private key. You should also make note of your private key in WIF format since it is more widely used.
