There are currently two wallet options available:

  • A plugin that you’re able to start with the nodeos server.
  • A standalone daemon that can be run on a seperate server, independent from the nodeos server. << We’re going to be using this option

DO NOT SUPPLY THE FOLLOWING WHEN STARTING THE nodeos server: –plugin eosio::wallet_api_plugin
