Did you review BAM, Storm, and how passwords can be constructed?
Before you start your account, give some thought to your password. It must be 50-99 units to be super secure from Brute Force hackers.
Decide if you want a random password or brain wallet.
A brain wallet is meant to be easy to remember with a few rules. The BAM client generates a brain wallet. You can make it stronger by adding tags.
Here are some more simple techniques to build a "brain" password that you can easily remember, or easily reconstruct, but is very ugly looking in the end.
before and after tag:
back-forth first degree:
The man and woman rock back and forth on the dance floor.
hTe/amn/nad/aowmn/korc/kabc/nad/tofrh/no/eht/cadne/olfor (back-forth by word)
floor the forth back woman man The and rock and on dance (back-forth by sentence)
back-forth second degree:
olfor/hte/tofrh/labc/aowmm/amn/hTe/nad/korc/nad/no/cadne (back-forth of words after back-forth by sentence)
More techniques are in the pdf above.
Once you are confident of your password, try out the client.
There are two ways to access your account or start a BAM account.
Local PC install (recommended):
Here you would download the zip file, unzip and extract, enter the extracted folder, find the file type, "Windows Batch File" titled RUN, click run.
The client will emerge in a black data window and give you data.
Once you see that you are ready to enter this link into your browser:
During this initial period, the client must download the block chain. At the present time, this should take less than 15 minutes. Let the computer do this before you resume your normal activities.
The first thing you should do after entering the client is check your BAM account address BAM XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX.
- COPY AND PASTE IT IN A TEXT FILE.
- LOG OUT.
- LOG BACK IN WITH YOUR PASSWORD.
- MAKE SURE YOU GET THE SAME BAM ADDRESS YOU STARTED WITH.
Now you are ready to get 10 FREE BAM!
