EOSfuture – A guide on Voting via Scatter (Google chrome Add-on)
Pre-Requisite Note: To vote on EOS it is required to have the scatter application installed in chrome. (This is similar to Metamask in terms of functionality and allows you to vote).
We have put together our own guide for this installation, however if you prefer you can always browse to: https://eosportal.io/help#setting-up-scatter
Enter the following link into your chrome browser, or if you prefer search google for scatter chrome extension. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/scatter/ammjpmhgckkpcamddpolhchgomcojkle?hl=en
Click on the add to chrome extension as shown below:
Confirm you can add the application to chrome as shown below:
From the top right of chrome you will need to create a scatter password on your local machine. To do this click on the icon shown below and enter password information:
Click create new Scatter to get started.
As with many other crypto wallets you will be given a 12 word phrase that will need to be kept safe, in case you require it in the future.
The next step is to pair your keys with scatter to allow you to perform voting. Open the scatter addin and select “Key Pairs”. EOS will automatically default and you then need to add your private key (don’t worry this will be encrypted with 256 bit encryption and again is the same way metamask works for example).
Enter you information and click save, as shown below: (Note – Don’t click generate key)
Then within scatter, select identities, and click on the pencil icon to edit. Select the EOS key pair you created earlier from the drop down as shown below:
Click Import. You then need to select the @Active account shown (you can use either but good practise is to always use the active account).
Now Click SAVE at the top right.
You are now ready to vote!
