Installing & Updating

EspersCoin, installing and updating the wallet.

Installing a wallet is something you will have to do for every coin if you really want to be safe. We just encountered another hack on an Exchange, this time Cryptopia was hacked and at the moment it is still uncertain what coins were stolen. 
Exchanges are 9.9 out of 10 wise enough to not be held responsible for a loss of your coins! That is a wise thing to do from the Exchange perspective of course.

Unfortunately not all coins run a coinspecific wallet but always check the coin website if there is a wallet available for your OS.

Espers fortunately has and I will guide you through the setup here.

The Espers website can be found at https://espers.io/

1. Click the download an Espers Wallet and look for the one that serves your OS.

2. After the download has finished click the file you downloaded, most of the time this is a .dmg file. Install leaving every option you get as is.

Once installed click the Espers-QT.app
you will in most cases be presented by this screen

but now worries, simpy open your System preferences and click Security & Privacy

followed by Open Anyway

The Espers splash screen will open followed by the next one. The red arrows indicate the place where Espers shows you the wallet isn’t synced.

We will now follow instructions that probably will be updated on the website in the wallet section. Visit https://espers.io/ again if you closed it. Click the link near the read arrow!

I tried to run the script they offer but in my case it didn’t work. I strongly advise you to install everything manually. This gives you a better idea on what is needed to install a wallet.

So start with where it says;
1 — Update your nodes:

Just 1 thing I need to tell you before you can proceed. The files you are looking for are in a hidden folder.
Press Command – shift – dot simultaneously to show hidden folders on you Mac and head over to:
/Users/yourusername/Library/Application Support/ESP
Here are the files you need to backup, edit and later on delete.

After you followed all the steps it is time to open Espers-QT.app again and it will only take a couple of minutes to synchronize. 

Congrats! You are now ready to send the coins to your local wallet. Don’t forget to backup the wallet to a alternative location. Preferably a USB stick or hard disk at another location or stored in a fire proof safe! 

While writing this on January 16th 2019 the dev team from Espers announced an update on the wallet. The MacOS version isn’t ready yet but you can read here once it has how to update.

Updating Espers wallet

New wallet release means updating the current one. Cryptocoderz released a new Espers wallet for Mac today Jan 17th 2019. I will show you how to update in the following. If there is no specific HOW-TO-UPDATE readme file you are safe to follow these instructions.

Head over to https://espers.io and download the new wallet ( in this case Espers-v0.8.7.5-macOSX-u5-p6.zip) and download the latest snapshot (info on the page show in the image here)

1. backup your wallet if you haven’t done so yet.

2. close the running wallet

3. Press Command – shift – dot simultaneously to show hidden folders on you Mac If they aren’t yet) and head over to:

/Users/yourusername/Library/Application Support/ESP

4. delete all the files here EXCEPT Espers.conf and wallet.dat

5. unzip the snapshot in a temporary folder and copy the files to /Users/yourusername/Library/Application Support/ESP

6. rename Espers-QT.app in your applications folder

6. Copy the new Espers-QT.app to the Applications folder

Start the Espers-QT.app and you will probably see the same image again you saw after the initial install.

but now worries, simpy open your System preferences and click Security & Privacy

followed by Open Anyway

Your wallet will open and sync shortly. You can check your version from the Menu -> Espers-QT – About Espers-QT, a popup will open and show you v0.8.7.5-Patch 6 Alpha
