F & Q
1: Q: How to use ATON?
A: Please check the user guide of ATON via: https://devdocs.platon.network/docs/en/ATON-user-manual/.
2. Q: I’ve installed ATON before, how could I upgrade it?
A: If you’ve installed an ATON 0.10.1 or above, and upgraded to be 0.13.3, then the previous ATON wallet address will be upgraded to the latest wallet address. If you’ve installed an ATON earlier than 0.10.1, please export the private key of your wallet and delete ATON first, then install ATON 0.13.3. After that, import your wallet using private key rather than mnemonic word, then you will see the upgraded wallet address.
3. Q: How to back up wallet and keep the private key?
A: You can back up your wallet through backing up your mnemonic word, exporting private key, and exporting your wallet file. It will be safer to store your exported files and mnemonic word offline.
4. Q: What should I do if I lose my LAT after the upgrade?
A: Currently, ATON is the testnet version, and LAT has no economic value. In addtion, the LAT you get now can’t be mapped to the main net. So, if you lose LAT, please get it again from our faucet following: https://platon.network -> Community -> Faucet.
5. Q: How to check the LAT rewards I won after the launch of Alaya?
A: Currently, ATON is the testnet version, the LAT rewards users won during PlatON Galaxy Rally are based on main net. Thus it won’t show on your ATON wallet until it is issued. You can check your rewards on our Check Rewards system with your wallet address you sent to PlatON team for reward distribution: https://platon.network/galaxy/reward.
