The Wagerr Electron Wallet allows for a significantly improved user experience compared to the previous Qt client. The app loads and runs faster, yet uses fewer computational resources.
The entire user interface has been enhanced to display hundreds of simultaneous betting events, with new events and changing odds updated in real time.
Once the client is installed and synchronized, the wallet’s tabs and pages will update. This includes regular betting, bet history, chain games, and other client wallet resources.
Here is the ‘home’ or start page of the Wagerr Electron wallet. This shows a quick overview of the WGR coin balance available, with transaction history and navigation links to other tabs within the wallet.
If you are in another part of the wallet and would like to get back to the ‘home page,’ select the ‘Wallet Home’ icon on the navigation bar at the top of the display. This will be the same on every page within the wallet.
Complete betting history is available from within the wallet by selecting the ‘Bet History’ tab. This sorts the bets in date order:
Each betting event has its own ID for organizational reference. Concise details about the betting event are shown on the WGR block explorer:
Here are options to copy the TXid to the computer clipboard, there is also a direct link to the WGR block explorer for the betting event that has been taken part of.
This shows the betting option that have been placed on that event.
Money line Home: Betting for the home team to win
Money line Away: Betting for the away team to win
Money line Draw: Betting for both playing teams to reach a draw
Displays the Home team
Displays the Away team
Shows the amount of WGR being bet on that event*
*On the Testnet client, this will show as “tWGR Amount.”
After the betting event has taken place, the result will update showing the outcome.
The Betting tab displays all available sports betting events.These are organized into different categories and the specific events are each listed under the appropriate category.
The blue outlined section shows the different sports event betting categories.
The yellow outlined section shows the betting options available for that particular event. These vary due to the events and their play options, and often there are more choices than just the standard Home and Away/Winning team options.
Once a betting option is selected, a bet slip will display. You can then enter the amount of WGR you would like to bet with for that event with possible betting outcome (The minimum bet is 25 WGR and any possible winnings are calculated via the odds for the event that is selected). Potential overall winnings from that event will display at the bottom of the bet slip in red.
Once you are satisfied that the event, outcome and betting amount are a correct representation of the bet(s) you want to place, then select the BET button to place, and then broadcast, the bet across the blockchain.
After the bet has been placed, a transaction ID will briefly display. The bet will then be shown in the Bet History tab and be live after the required blockchain confirmations have been completed.
The new Wagerr Electron wallet makes it possible to take part in the Chain Games Lottery, where each ticket costs 100 WGR. You can enter as many times as you like. The entrants and possible winnings for the current round are shown on this tab and the lottery draw takes place once per day. Each time a draw takes place, a fixed percentage of WGR coins are burned. This depends on the number of entrants and tickets purchased. As with Wagerr’s regular betting, there is a disinflationary aspect every time the chain game Lottery runs. In the long run, if the burn from the Lottery exceeds the total mint of new coins, the burn could fuel deflation.
The Chain Games tab displays the following information for the next round and includes:
Game Start/Game End: Date and time for the next drawing of tickets.
Current Jackpot: The total amount of WGR currently in the Chain Games Lottery prize pot.
Potential winnings: The amount of possible WGR that can be won, and has to be won from a single ticket entry.
Masternode Reward: Amount of WGR deducted to be rewarded amongst current WGR masternode owners.
Burn: The total amount of WGR to be burned on the Blockchain in a deflationary aspect.
Lotto ID: Identification for the game of the current round
Entrants: Amount of Chain Games Lottery tickets purchased for the current round
Entry: The current WGR cost per single ticket entry
The Chain Games lotto has been developed to be provably fair through an entropic and fully decentralised selection protocol that can be processed by any staking node on the network and validated by every other node on the network before being submitted to the blockchain.
In short, when the lotto payout is triggered, the protocol will add together the timestamp and value out of the previous block. Then use that sum as an index to loop through the list of entrants to select the winner to receive 80% of the pot, 18% is burned and 2% goes to the OMN’s (Oracle masternodes).
Tools and Info
This tab displays important information for the client wallet including the release version and protocol version. Extra details such as the current blockheight and WGR masternodes online are also available.
More in-depth info can be displayed from the sidebar links that are marked out in blue.
Opening the peers list will show the other nodes and wallets that the client is connected to on the WGR blockchain network:
Address:Port shows the IP address and physical port the clients are running on
Version: Shows the client/Daemon version of the remote peers
Ping Time: Response time of the client
Some additional functions are accessible. These tools allows you to work on and repair the client wallet in certain situations. BACKUP your wallet.dat before using these tools!
With this option you can attempt to recover private keys from a corrupt client on system startup. (This can also be achieved in the RPC CLI Tool with -salvage wallet)
Rescan the blockchain for missing wallet transactions. (This can also be achieved in the RPC CLI Tool with -rescan)
Recover Transactions (1)
This deletes all the client wallet transactions and only recovers those parts of the blockchain through -rescan on startup - keeps TX metadata e.g. account owner & payment request information (This can also be achieved in the RPC CLI Tool with -zapwalletxes1)
Recover Transactions (2)
This function deletes all the client wallet transactions and only recovers those parts of the blockchain through -rescan on startup - drops TX metadata (This can also be achieved in the RPC CLI Tool with -zapwalletxes2)
This upgrades the client wallet to the latest format on startup (This can also be achieved in the RPC CLI Tool with -upgradewallet)
When using this option, the client wallet will rebuild the blockchain index and transactions from the local blockchain files - it will not download data and synchronise the entire chain (This can also be achieved in the RPC CLI Tool with -reindex)
Delete Block Chain
After selecting this function, the client wallet will delete the local blockchain files and resynchronize from scratch, downloading the blockchain again and synchronizing the transactions. (This can also be achieved in the RPC CLI Tool with -resync)
The main settings for the WGR Electron client wallet are located here.
The client wallet must be unlocked to perform betting, staking and masternode functions. The client wallet must be encrypted first before using this function.
Before functions such as betting, staking, and mastenode functions are enabled, you must first encrypt the client wallet by entering the password twice. *Make sure to use a secure password and one that you will not forget, after this process. if you forget your password, you will NOT be able to bet, stake, run your masternode or access/send WGR funds!!
If you wish, you can change the WGR client wallet password, to do this enter your old password then enter your newly chosen password twice. *Make sure to use a secure password and one that you will not forget, after this change. if you forget your password, you will NOT be able to bet, stake, run your masternode or access/send WGR funds!!
With this utility, you can ‘sign’ a message to prove the WGR finds belong to you.
Enter your WGR address with the funds in, create a small message and sign it - this will create a signature you can use or copy to another party so they can check the source of funds are legitimate and real - you can use the copy button to link the signature to the other party.
Here you can verify the signed message details are correct using the details that are given. Enter the signing address, message, and signature - select verify
Use this option to backup the local wallet.dat file that contains all historical transactions and funds. Make sure to backup to a secure location, perhaps copying to two USB thumb drives or similar medium - if you lose the wallet.dat file (and do not have the address private keys backed up, all WGR and associated TX data will be permanently lost with no way to retrieve them!)
RPC CLI Tool
The Remote Procedure Call Command Line Interface is a set of tools within the client wallet. In the previous WGR Qt client wallet, this was called the Debug Console and many of the commands within the RPC CLI run in the background with the GUI making the client easier to operate. There are still some commands that sometimes need calling, for instance, getinfo, and so on.
To list the commands that are available, enter help and press return.
