Generate public keys

First off all you have to generate secret (SK) and public (PK) keys. You can do this by using our online tool: https://conversion.adshares.net/key or linux command line tool: https://github.com/adshares/ads/wiki/How-to-generate-ADS-keys

Get an account

Next write a message on our telegram channel https://t.me/livebyads and ask for an account. Remember that you should never give your secret key (SK). Public key (PK) and a signature of a empty string (SG) is enough to create an account.

Check your account

After you get your account address, you should check it. Just type it in a search field in the blockexplorer:

https://blockexplorer.adshares.net/

It can take a while (max 15 min.) to register your new account in blockexplorer. Please note if the Id and Public Key are correct.
