Key Management

This article is a guide about key management strategy on client side of your Decentralised Application on Loop Network

Setup Web3

web3.js is a javascript library that allows our client-side application to talk to the blockchain. We configure web3 to communicate via Metamask.
web3.js doc is here

Connect to LOOP network

// mainnet
const web3 = new Web3('');
// testnet
const web3 = new Web3('');

Set up account

If the installation and instantiation of web3 was successful, the following should successfully return a random account:
const account = web3.eth.accounts.create();

Recover account

If you have backup the private key of your account, you can use it to restore your account.
const account = web3.eth.accounts.privateKeyToAccount("$private-key")

Full Example

const Web3 = require('web3');
async function main() {
const web3 = new Web3('https://');
const loader = setupLoader({ provider: web3 }).web3;
const account = web3.eth.accounts.create();
