    2. Wait for the Download to finish, then open the "xtrabytes-Qt-OSX-v1202.dmg“ File
    3. Move the Application "xtrabytes-Qt.app“ to your Applications Folder
    4. From the Application Folder start you Wallet the first time (or just hit ⌘+Space, search for
    "xtrabytes“ and launch it with Enter)
    5. Wait for the Wallet to start up and finish syncing with the Blockchain.
    6. Ready to use.

    Make sure to always Backup your Wallet.dat File and Privatekeys.

    As well as encrypting the Wallet with a strong Password.


    OPTIONAL IMPORT EXISTING WALLET

    Import your existing Privatekey in the Wallet-Console, do this by typing "importprivkey XXX“ in the
    Console, where "XXX“ is your existing Privatekey.

    Or open the Finder and got to "~/Library/Application Support/xtrabytes“ (you can jump to the
    directory by typing "⇪+⌘+G“ and paste the Path above.

    In the "~/Library/Application Support/xtrabytes“ Directory you can replace your Wallet.dat with the
    existing Version you have. Make sure to always Backup your Wallet.dat File and Privatekeys
