Getting Started
This morphs into a much more comprehensive introduction to Zenon - something like this
Zenon is a young platform, but it offers many interesting and exciting opportunities to get engaged and participate in the new frontier of blockchains. Getting started can feel daunting, but we hope this document will ease your introduction and onboarding.
If you have any questions, or doubts, need something to be cleared up, or just want to chat, please join us on Discord or Telegram. We'd love to hear from you.

Zenon tokens and Fees

Placeholder text : Independent and passion driven, Zenon’s purpose is to redefine the status quo of dApps platforms by letting it thrive to an ecosystem of itself, built by a passionate community of developers who are establishing the Network of Momentum as the substratum of a new decentralized Internet.
Zenon Network is an open source blockchain protocol for launching decentralized applications on a dual layer, dual coin, zero-fee platform.

Syrius Wallet

The Syrius Wallet is the go-to wallet on the Network of Momentum. It's the command center for Delegating, Staking, Managing Tokens and Transacting.
How do I get Plasma for sending fee-less transactions?
You need QSR to generate Plasma. In the Plasma tab in Syrius select the address you want to generate Plasma for, select the amount of QSR you want to fuse to that address ( minimum of 20 QSR recommended ) and click 'Fuse'. If you have no Plasma yet a PoW is done to fuel the process. The QSR can be unfused at any time with no loss. More info here.

I would like to change the Node my Syrius wallet points to, how do I do that?

In the Syrius wallet go to the Settings tab. Scroll down >> Bottom left /Node Management >> Add Node >> and put in the address of your new Node aggregator, select it and click 'Confirm Node'. More info here.

Syrius is giving me an 'Unlock Failed' error.

This is related to the node your wallet is connected to. Try quitting Syrius, disconnecting your computer from the internet, relaunching & opening Syrius and changing the node.
Learn how to change the Syrius node here.
Other community workarounds are linked here.

How do I delegate for rewards in the Syrius wallet?

In the Pillar tab of Syrius you will find a list of active Pillars on the Network and their voting weight. You can select any of those by simply tapping 'delegate'. The entire balance of the address you're currently in is then delegated to that Pillar.
If you want to delegate to other Pillars at the same time you need to move a portion of your funds across to another address within your wallet. Move to that address ( select it in the settings tab ) and then delegate those funds in that address to another Pillar. This is a good way to discover which Pillars are yielding greater returns.
You can find more info on Delegating and Staking here.
I'm creating a new Syrius wallet but can't make a password.
Syrius requires that passwords contain the following.
A small letter A capital letterA symbol like @#$¢!%A number
How do I backup my Syrius wallet?
You do that in the Settings tab. Scroll down > bottom right 'Backup'

When will cold wallet support be available?

The implementation for cold wallet support is possible and can be developed after Alphanet launch. Cold wallet storage of wZNN through Metamask is possible now.

Is there a Mobile Wallet for Zenon Network of Momentum?

There will be a mobile version of Syrius as well as community-built mobile wallets, which are in test phase. Nothing is released yet.

Legacy wallet

Guides for the Legacy Wallet are here.

I downloaded the Legacy wallet but it didn’t make me create a recovery phrase, why?

The legacy wallet doesn’t use recovery phases, if you back up a copy of your wallet.dat file ( File >> Backup Wallet>>Save As) it contains your private key.

I downloaded the Legacy wallet but it's taking a long time to sync, why?

The Legacy wallet ( make sure it's version 1.6.4 or 1.6.5 ) is picking up over 2 years of blockchain data from other nodes - that's over 3GB of info. It should take a couple of hours depending on your connection and the Nodes. The green bar at the bottom disappears when it's done.

Where do I find the .dat backup of my Legacy Wallet on WIndows?

if you are on Windows, your Zenon Core wallet.dat is located at:
C:\Users[username]\AppData\Roaming\znn OR C:\Users[username]\AppData\Roaming\zenon
There’s a backup of your wallet in c:/users/your username/appdata/roaming/zenon

How do you get the private keys from legacy wallet? Is there a command?

Go to tools >> click on 'debug console'
type: walletpassphrase "your walletpassphrase here"
type: dumpprivkey "your znn pub address here"
This will return the private key. You can copy/save it. Ensure you clear your clipboard afterwards.
type: walletlock
There is a key for each of the addresses in the Core Wallet, so do the above for each address in your legacy wallet which contains ZNN.

Why are Pillars and Sentinels so expensive?
The Network of Momentum probably wouldn’t perform very well if nodes didn’t have stable uptimes and could join/leave at will. This is currently an issue with Lightning and why it ends up being more centralized than we would like. High collateral is skin in the game to prevent that. The high price of buy-in also constitutes as COLLATERAL, meaning possible punitive actions for bad behaviour. Especially when we start talking about BTC interoperability.
Having a stable set of nodes is important for each step of a transaction. Every transaction has to be sent to a sentinel who then has to send to other sentinels before sending to a pillar. Pillars use virtual voting for consensus which also need a relatively stable voting set.
The NoM is not like BTC where we can randomly send to any node and receive blocks every 10 minutes. Momentums are much faster.

What is a Momentum?

A Momentum on the Network of Momentum is similar to a block in a regular blockchain, but due to the Dual-layer design of the NoM, each published ‘block’ is in fact a collection of blocks of information; some from the DAG layer, and some from the Block-lattice transaction layer. This published package of information from the two layers of the NoM is called a Momentum and like a block in the Bitcoin chain, it is tamper-proof and irreversible once published.

How does plasma secure the network and make transactions feeless?

Plasma is created by ‘fusing’ the second coin of the NoM, Quasar, in your Syrius wallet under the ‘Plasma’ tab. You fuse Quasar for Plasma for each address you will be transacting from. ( They have to be done individually with Quasar sent to each address. ) This locks the Quasar to the address and forms a Proof of Stake, at the same time creating the energy to fuel transactions.
So in a way you do have to pay for transactions by buying and fusing Quasar, but that Quasar can be unfused at any time after an initial short lock time and is not depleted through the action of creating Plasma. The Quasar/QSR you put in to fuse is what you get back when you un-fuse. The Plasma generated through fusing is algorithmically determined to ensure the network stays stable and cannot be spammed - there will never be enough plasma in the network to congest it. Everyone only gets a portion of the throughput depending on how much QSR is staked.
The PoW is apparently very difficult so its effects are negligible. "
