Energi Gen 2 was a fork of Dash which implements of Proof-of-Stake consensus.
Energi Gen 3 is based on the same code as Ethereum (which allows the support of smart-contracts) while keeping our previous implementations.
Energi Gen 3 IS NOT an ERC-20 token.
Energi Gen 3 has its own blockchain that is compatible with dApps developped for Ethereum.
To understand this question, you need to understand that a Gen 3 address is a key-pair just as it is on the Ethereum blockchain. Therefore, if someone has an Ethereum address, they could use the same address as an Energi Gen3 address. Existing wallets can be used to create such addresses.
However, most existing wallets do not connect to the Energi Gen 3 Mainnet, and will not offer any features to control the wallet. EnergiWallet is such a wallet. MetaMask could also, but it has to be setup properly in order to connect to the Energi Gen3 Mainnet (instead of the Ethereum network).
The principles are the same as with Ethereum. The difference is that wallets, blockexplorers and DApps need to connect to the Energi Gen3 mainnet. Currently, only EnergiWallet and Energi Explorer connect to the Energi Mainnet. MetaMask could also be used, but it has to be set up manually to connect to the Energi Gen3 mainnet.
We will pursue Ledger support eventually, we anticipate within a year.
You can enter a command at any time. Don’t worry, the command will work just fine even though new lines of output may appear on your console.
Due to the light proof-of-stake logic utilized by the Energi 3.0 blockchain, node synchronization should be relatively quick with a stable internet connection.
Your console is set to show importation of each new chain segment and this is perfectly normal.
