Have just downloaded “Syscoin wallet ver. 2.1.4 onto Windows desktop pc. It is now sitting in “Local
Disk © drive. After clicking on it, wallet opens up, it shows the title stated at the top as “Syscoin Core –
Wallet”. I suppose the Wallet is now ready for use for all transactions. Only that I’ve not used it yet.
Can anyone clarify the following issues :
1 Is this wallet, ver. 2.1.4 the correct one to use for keeping Syscoins at present.
2 In the options menu at the top left is the word “Encrypt wallet”, where you have to input a “passphrase”. Should I encrypt it or is it not a necessity.
3 Is it safe and secure to be keeping this wallet on desktop pc or should I move it to another platform if
it is not secure, eg. can I move it to a usb thumbdrive. Otherwise, do I keep it both on the pc drive and in the thumbdrive also as sort of a backup.
