I've created a wallet with create-wallet.sh and loaded it with load-wallet.sh, and its balance is 0:


Lars says in the video that we can connect this wallet to Daedalus or Yoroi and then use the Faucet to fund the wallet. Is there a way to fund the wallet directly, without Daedalus or Yoroi? I have already used Faucet at a previous step, the balance of the address I have used is 999.656267 ADA and I should be able to connect the wallet to these funds.

You might do as follows:

  • create-wallet.sh (create a new wallet)

  • load-wallet.sh (load new wallet into wallet-backend)

  • Take id value from load-wallet.sh result.

  • Set WALLETID=id in your env.sh

  • . env.sh (source env.sh)

  • get_address.sh (get the address of the new wallet)

  • Use send.sh (week03) in order to transfer funds from your funded address to your new address.

cardano-cli transaction build \
    --alonzo-era \
    --testnet-magic 1097911063 \
    --change-address <address_with_funds> \
    --tx-in <an_utxo_id_with_funds> \
    --tx-out "<your_new_address> <ada_to_tranfer> lovelace" \
    --out-file tx.body

cardano-cli transaction sign \
    --tx-body-file tx.body \
    --signing-key-file <skey_of_address_with_funds> \
    --testnet-magic 1097911063 \
    --out-file tx.signed

cardano-cli transaction submit \
    --testnet-magic 1097911063 \
    --tx-file tx.signed

Hope this will be useful.

  • $ ./sendWallet.sh Estimated transaction fee: Lovelace 166953 Transaction successfully submitted. That's great, it worked, balance is also updated. Commented Mar 1, 2022 at 12:15
