Generating Numerous Accounts
A common task for exchanges is to safely and predictably generate a large number of addresses. You can do so using one or more BIP39 mnemonics.
Exporting an Account
You may also wish to export a keypair to a portable format to use it somewhere else. We support a modified implementation of the Web3 Secret Storage Definition.
Now, you should be able to find your file containing your passphrase-encrypted private key at the path you specified. Remember to always keep this file, and especially your passphrase, secret!
Importing an Account
Ethereum's implementation differs from Zilliqa's. You will not be able to decrypt a Zilliqa keystore file using web3 and vice-versa.
At some stage, you may also need to import a keystore file you had previously exported. There is a convenient facility for that.
These two methods allow you to securely serialise and deserialise your accounts.
