A VPN is a private network. Therefore, the information you send and receive on a VPN is walled off from other computers and the internet. It also offers the benefit of encryption. Any data sent or received by users belonging to a VPN remains encrypted and your IP address will be masked. Your Internet Service Provider, the websites you visit, or apps will not be able to track your online activity.
No, you will NOT lose any data stored in previous versions. Virtual assets (WiFi assets) are stored on the NEO blockchain.
WinQ has a built-in NEP5 - NEO Crypto wallet. This wallet interacts with the public NEO blockchain. Currently, WinQ is using the NEO TestNet.
(Please note that this is only available in TestNet mode) Each newly created wallet is automatically credited with 100 TestNet QLC.
When switching to the MainNet mode, the 100 QLC will NOT show up in your wallet balance.
Please note that MainNet and TestNet are two separate networks. Therefore if you transfer from your WinQ TestNet wallet to a MainNet wallet or exchange address your transfer will not be reflected in theMainNet wallet balance.
However, the WinQ Wallet is in full compliant with NEO wallets that use the NEP5 standard. This means that you can send your TestNet QLC tokens to any other TestNet NEO compliant wallet. Exchange deposit address will NOT work.
Yes! It’s easy. Please make sure your private key and other wallet information are exported before you proceed to the next step, then switch to the MainNet in the WinQ wallet to confirm your transfer. From here on, any further implementation shall be compliant with any Nep-5 token wallet.
Starting on June 28th, an updated WinQ version with MainNet wallet mode was available on Google Play. Users are given the option to switch to the MainNet mode in the wallet and either import a Nep-5 wallet or create a new wallet on the NEO blockchain.
First, make sure you are in the TestNet mode. Please wait 30 seconds to 1 minute for the TestNet QLC to show up in your wallet. It takes time for the blockchain to process the newly created wallet. If you still don’t receive the 100 TestNet QLC, try to create a new TestNet wallet. There is no limit of wallets you can create.
WinQ stores wallet information including public and private key on your device locally.WinQ will ask you to set a password to prevent unauthorized access to the dApp. It also supports biometric data protection. You can use fingerprint reading to unlock your dApp.
Since the dApp is not using a centralized server, your password isn't stored anywhere else other than on your device. However, please note that the password will not be able to be recovered if you ever lose it.
On June 28th, WinQ was updated to offers both MainNet and TestNet modes for users. The WinQ Wallet is fully functioning in the MainNet mode, while asset registration on the MainNet is not open for mass users yet.
We are in the process of creating a timeline as well as polishing the mechanism to migrate registered WinQ assets to the Mainnet, this will be considered part of the QLC token economy.
In the TestNet mode, free QLC tokens are dropped in your wallet to use VPN and WiFi services. This will not cost any real QLC.
When switched to the MainNet mode, you will pay the amount of QLC as specified in the VPN asset list. To unlock the VPN service, you can
1. Top up your QLC in the WinQ wallet by transferring from other wallets or your exchange address.
2. Import any Nep-5 compliant MainNet wallet to get started right away
