Create an account

Create a new account

By default an account is created when you start up your node for the first time. But you can create a new account at any time with the following command:

ironfish accounts:create
Restart the animation
ironfish accounts:createMyNewAccount Creating account MyNewAccount Account MyNewAccount saved to /Users/username/.ironfishtodelete/accounts.json Public address: 6a085865ac5608c8ec64189db54d4b5c085da9da12dad0a0bf00f60e52c16b0303d8a8dd7d82601f577c8d Run "ironfish accounts:use MyNewAccount" to set the account as default

Set the account as default

When you have multiple accounts, you can indicate to the CLI which one to use

ironfish accounts:use MyNewAccount

Next steps

You can read about the different accounts commands on this section. Now that you created an account, you can use it to get coins or start mining.
