ELLD is the official CLI-based client used to connect and interact with the Ellcrys network. ELLD users will be able to join the network, mine blocks, construct transactions and access the state of the network.
Start Elld (with ephemeral key)
To start Elld (with ephemeral key):
elld start -a "0.0.0.0:9000"
To start Elld (with a local key):
elld start -a "0.0.0.0:9000" --account 0
Join the Network on startup
elld start \
-a "0.0.0.0:9000" \
-j "ellcrys:// 12D3KooWGZxHXA3P9SxyMRYecgyKggAmdviTkKKVnmUCaWU

When the node starts, an ephemeral key is used to derive the node's identity when interacting with other nodes on the network. Ephemeral keys are temporary; They are disposed of when the node stops running. Elld will not allow CPU mining operation when the node is using an ephemeral key as the operator will lose any mining reward to the temporary address since they will have no access and control over it.
With a few clicks, create and manage accounts, send & receive transactions and use the in-built CPU-miner to mine blocks.
Create AccountsYou can create accounts for better management of your coins.
Send & ReceiveCreate transactions to send the native coins to any account on the network.
Mine Ell coinsUse the in-built CPU-miner to miner blocks and extend the blockchain.
