Whenever you are storing objects with a market value, security is necessary. This applies to barter systems as well as economies using currency as a medium of exchange. While banks store balances on a private ledger, cryptocurrencies store balances under unique addresses on a distributed public ledger. The cryptographic private keys to access the balance stored on each public address are therefore the object of value in this system. This section of the documentation discusses different practical methods of keeping these keys safe in wallets, while remaining useful for day-to-day needs.
Historia Core Wallet¶
Historia Core Wallet is the full official release of Historia and supports all Historia features as they are released. Current support includes IPFS, Record and Proposal Storage, InstantSend and PrivateSend, as well as an RPC console and governance features. Historia Core Wallet (sometimes known as the QT wallet) is a professional or heavy wallet which downloads the full blockchain (several GB in size). The Historia Core Wallet also includes the IPFS record and proposal database, and can operate as both a full node and masternode on the network. Because of the requirement to hold a full copy of the blockchain, some time is required for synchronization when starting the wallet. Once this is done, the correct balances will be displayed, and the functions of the wallet can be used. Historia Core Wallet is available for macOS, Linux, and Windows.
