Golem's Docs

Your Golem wallet stores GNT and ETH for use on the network. We highly recommend that you backup your wallet when you begin to use your Golem app. That way if your computer crashes and you cannot recover your files, you have the keys to your wallet to restore Golem on a new machine.

Finding Your Wallet Keys

Your wallet keys can be found in your app directory. The locations of the app directories for each supported OS are below:

  • Windows: %LOCALAPPDATA%\golem\golem\default
  • MacOS: ~/Library/Application Support/golem/default
  • Linux: ~/.local/share/golem/default

These directories contain everything associated with your Golem account and the app itself. The exact location of the wallet keys are inside those directories under:

/keys/keystore.json

Copy your keys from that file directory onto a piece of paper and store in a safe place. You can also back these files up to another hard drive if you wish, but the safest way to store this data is to write it down (just remember where you put it!).
