What do you mean? You mean you don’t understand how to get your coins from the exchange to your wallet?

Hi,
My getinfo returns for testnet in my local machine
#####################################
./bitbayd -testnet getinfo
{
“version” : “v2.0.0.0-g32a928e”,
“protocolversion” : 60016,
“walletversion” : 60000,
“balance” : 0.00000000,
“newmint” : 0.00000000,
“stake” : 0.00000000,
“blocks” : 0,
“timeoffset” : 0,
“moneysupply” : 0.00000000,
“connections” : 0,
“proxy” : “”,
“ip” : “0.0.0.0”,
“difficulty” : {
“proof-of-work” : 0.00001526,
“proof-of-stake” : 0.00001526
},
“testnet” : true,
“keypoololdest” : 1526974556,
“keypoolsize” : 101,
“paytxfee” : 0.00010000,
“mininput” : 0.00000000,
“errors” : “”
}
Now I have executed the below command
###############################
./bitbayd -testnet getnewaddress

This command returns the newv address "mj8CTgGPGHjab1iUipb7f2HS61KiiUQgK4"
Now I am trying to get some coin into this test net address.That later I will use the coins.Please help.

I am not following what you want to achieve sorry. Why don’t you directly create a multi-signature account using the client’s gui? It will automatically generate you an address.

@sweetyvj2002 i dont think there is any nodes running in testnet mode at this time thus its unusable … i will talk to other devs so we can add some nodes to testnet as we are probably going to need it for our upcoming releases

Hey thanks for reply.Actually I have configured it on my desktop.Now my task is to test the wallet transactions in testnet mode.But for insufficient balance I can not proceed.
Is there any way that I will be able to test the transactions ( using terminal ) ?

@sweetyvj2002
since there is no proper testnet network in place I would suggest you should try regular LIVE network (start bitbayd without -testnet) but test things with very small amounts to be safe

ok quite risky for me.Thanks for the information.My request if possible please try to find out a way for testing purpose.It will make a developer’s life easy.:slight_smile:
Thanx a lot.
