Beam command line (CLI) guide

The "official" Beam command line reference guide!

The command line is the most reliable method of using Beam wallets; certain features (Registering CAs, Lightning Payments, Beam Shaders) can only perform on the command line. Available for macOS, Windows, and Linux.

Due to Beam's LelantusMW protocols, the private keys of Beam wallets record the user's UTXO balance on the blockchain, while transaction histories, addresses, and other wallet metadata are stored locally on each device.

Beam allows users to run a full node and interact with it via the command line.

Getting started

This section uses Linux and macOS commands; Windows users, please substitute./beam-walletwith beam-wallet.exe, and Windows Command Prompts where necessary.

Creating a new Beam wallet

To create a new wallet, enter the following command:

./beam-wallet init

The-wallet init command will ask users to create a wallet password:

Enter password: ****************

Wallet passwords protect yourwallet.dbfiles where all your crucial wallet metadata is stored. Anyone who has your wallet password will have access to your funds. Create a strong wallet password and keep your password secret!

After creating your wallet password, the-wallet initcommand output should resemble the following:

$ ./beam-wallet init

Therules signatureis a hash of the current node configuration that determines compatibility between different versions of nodes and wallets.

Write down your seed phrase! Keep your seed phrase secret, and never share your seed phrase with anyone!

Your seed phrase is the only way you (or anybody) can access your funds. Your seed phrase is not linked to your email or phone number. If you forget your wallet password or lose your device, the only way to restore your wallet is through your seed phrase!

Please do not write your seed phrase down electronically, take a screenshot or store it anywhere vulnerable to cyber attacks. Pen and paper are unhackable and recommended. Make multiple copies of your seed phrase and store them somewhere safe.

Exporting secret keys

Exporting miner key

Theminer_keyis a secret key that miners can use to collect their miner rewards.

To export yourminer_key, enter the following command:

./beam-wallet export_miner_key --subkey=

Enter your wallet password.

The output should resemble the following:

$ beam-wallet.exe export_miner_key --subkey=1

Keep yourminer_keysecret! Anyone with theminer_keycan retrieve the Miner Rewards associated with said keys.

Exporting owner key

Anowner_keyconnects all the nodes mining under that key and communicates with all the other nodes on the network of accumulated miner rewards. If a scenario occurs where a user has multiple mining nodes under oneowner_key, the user would only need to connect to a single node to collect the miner rewards.

Most cryptocurrencies allow users to connect mining nodes to a single address; however, the Mimblewimble protocol has no addresses. Unique blinding factors are deterministically derivative from themaster_keycode into the miner rewards tagged by a singleowner_key.

While anowner_keycannot access users' funds, it allows users to view all the coins mined by every mining node associated with said key. Keep yourowner_keysecret.

To exportowner_keyfrom your Beam wallet, enter the following command:

./beam-wallet export_owner_key

Enter your wallet password.

Sample output for this command should look like this:

$ ./beam-wallet export_owner_key

Printing wallet info

Printing your wallet info will give you a snapshot of your wallet, including wallet balance, block height, current state ID, available balance, total groth, and more.

To print the current status of your wallet, enter the following command:

./beam-wallet info

Enter your wallet password.

The output should resemble the following:

Once your wallet syncs with the specific node, your wallet will automatically scan the network for incoming transactions via SBBS addresses.

Receiving Beam coins

To Receive Beam coins, send your wallet address to the sender over a secure channel such as email or Telegram.

All incoming transactions will be viewable in your wallet logs and command terminal.

The output should be similar to the following:

Sending Beam

Things to consider:

  1. One Groth is equal to 1eβˆ’81e-8Beam.

  2. You can split a large UTXO by creating a transaction and sending a portion of the UTXO to yourself. Use the-wallet sendcommand to send the required amount to your own SBBS wallet address. A transaction fee will still be required.

To Send Beam coins, enter the following command:

./beam-wallet send -n -r -a -f

The output should resemble the following:

$ ./beam-wallet send -n 172.104.249.212:8101 -r 14a38140d8e66be9b8f1e8d770161fd33e35f7000053147b5a0f6a83178926b956 -a 10

Sending a specific UTXO

For certain transactions, the user might consider sending a specific UTXO.

To find a specific UTXO, enter the-wallet infocommand:

./beam-wallet info

Sending UTXO

Review and select the UTXO you wish to send.

Enter the -wallet sendcommand with a--utxotag, (use a comma to separate multiple UTXO IDs):

./beam-wallet send -n -r -a -f --utxo=

Cancel and delete a transaction

There might be an instance where it is necessary to cancel or delete an unsuccesful transaction.

Canceling a transaction

First, print your wallets transaction history using --tx_history command:

./beam-wallet info --tx_history

After locating the--tx_idt you wish to cancel, enter the following command:

./beam-wallet cancel_tx --tx_id= -n

Deleting a transaction

To delete a canceled transaction, enter the following command:

./beam-wallet delete_tx --tx_id= -n

Create a new wallet address

Due to Beam's LelantusMW protocol, your wallet address will never record on the blockchain. Beam wallets automatically create a new wallet address for every transaction. Beam offers users three different wallet address types; read about the different address types here.

Create a regular address

To create a regular address, enter the following command:

./beam-wallet get_address --expiration_time=never --comment="some comment"

Enter your wallet password.

Sample output should be similar to the following:

Create an Offline address

It is essential to provide the number of payments (i.e., vouchers). If the payments reach zero, the Sender wallet will automatically request more payments to the Receiver wallet using SBBS. If the Receiver's wallet is online within 12 hours of the request (until the SBBS message expires), it will send 30 more offline payment vouchers to the Sender. Otherwise, the Sender will receive notification that there are no more vouchers and need to request another offline address via an external channel.

To create an Offline address, enter the following command:

./beam-wallet get_address --offline_count 1

Enter your wallet password.

The output should be similar to following:

Locate Public-Offline address

A Public-Offline address is unique address to your Beam wallet and never expires. Public Offline addresses are a little less secure in one aspect: the Sender can potentially see when the Receiver spends the funds sent to this address (though, of course, not to whom or how much). We recommend using this address for donations or a Receiver wallet that is rarely online.

To locate your Beam wallet's Public-Offline address, enter the following command:

./beam-wallet get_address --public_offline

Enter your wallet password

The output should be similar to the following:

Change address expiry date

Beam wallets create a new wallet address for every transaction, It is possible however, to extend the expiration (24 hours) for an old address.

Extending the expiration date for a single wallet address

To extend your wallet address expiration date, enter the following command:

./beam-wallet change_address_expiration --address=14e191aaebace13b14e3ab41382280baff288faa312545eadd1a1bcfa3adaeac6ff

Extending the expiration for all addresses in your Beam wallet

To extend your wallets existing addresses, use the previous command, omitting the --addresstag.

Choosing an expiration date

Wallet addresses provided users with three different expiration date options:

  • Never: address expiration date will never expire.

  • Auto: wallet address expiration date will extend for an additional 24 hours before expiring.

  • Now: the wallet address will be expire immediately and will no longer be usable.

Enter the following command:

./beam-wallet change_address_expiration --address=<sbbs address> --expiration_time=(never|now|auto)

Export and import wallet metadata

If you have previously created a Beam wallet, you can recover your funds by restoring your wallet from your 12-word seed phrase. However, your wallet data (transaction history, contacts, addresses) is always stored locally onto yourwallet.dbfile.

Exporting wallet metadata

To export yourwallet.dbfile, enter the following command:

./beam-wallet export_data --file_location=<full path to addresses file, for example: C:\Users\user\addresses.dat>

Importing wallet metada

To import yourwallet.dbfile, enter the following command:

./beam-wallet import_data --file_location=<full path to addresses file, for example: C:\Users\user\addresses.dat>

Proof of transaction

SinceBeam 1.1.4194, the Receiver wallet has automatically signed proof of received transaction before sending it to the Sender. Upon request, the sender can generate proof of transaction.

When Sending Beam coins, adding the–payment_proof_required=1tag will require the Receiver to send the payment proof to Sender.

Locate the--tx_id. Enter the following command:

./beam-wallet info --tx_history

Get payment proof

After locating the--tx_id, enter the following command:

./beam-wallet payment_proof_export --tx_id=<txid>

The output should resemble the following:

Rescan wallet

Beam wallets regularly monitor the blockchain and sync new information with the wallet. If you suspect your balance, transaction, or UTXO status is not updated, the -wallet rescan command will sych your wallet with the blockchain's latest state.

In order to rescan the CLI wallet please follow the steps below:

Run the node with your owner key

Running a node with your owner key will verify if your wallet is synchornized with the network.

To run node with owner key, enter the following command:

./beam-node --peer=<ip or url of the peer> --owner_key=<your owner key>

Rescan the blockchain

To rescan the blockchain, enter following command:

./beam-wallet rescan -n <ip:port of the node with the owner key>

Listen for updates

To listen for any updates to the node, enter the-wallet listencommand:

./beam-wallet listen -n <ip:port of the node with the owner key>

Wait for synchronization

After your wallet and node have syncronized, recheck your wallet balance, transaction histories by entering the-wallet infocommand:

./beam-wallet info
