About the keystore

To store your blockchain private key in a file encrypted with a password, use the keystore file option.

Due to its simplicity and moderate security, this is the default method for new users - to enable them to quickly start using the CargoX Platform. The method works in any browser and any computer, regardless of whether you have administrative rights or not.

NOTE: Be advised that for better security you should upgrade the blockchain key method to a hardware wallet or at least to the MetaMask software wallet.

Setting up the keystore for the first time

You can create your blockchain key in a keystore file format and link it with your CargoX account directly on the CargoX Platform. Just go to Account | My profile | Privacy & Security and click the Add new blockchain key button, then follow the instructions.

Logging in with keystore (Unlocking your blockchain key)


The process is very similar to logging in with your username and password. The only difference is the look and feel of the login window. You should be careful to use the right password - the one that you have chosen to encrypt your keystore file (and not the one you use for logging into the platform with username+password).

The process is also very similar to unlocking the keystore blockchain key for signing the blockchain transaction from the within the platform - using the unlock blockchain key window.

Step 1: Login page 

To log in with a Keystore file go to https://cargox.digital and click the I want to login with my blockchain key link.

Select Keystore file from the login window:

Step 2: Upload the keystore file and enter your password (unlock page)

Click the Choose file button and select your keystore file (blockchain key) from your computer. Provide the password to decrypt it in the field below. 

This will unlock your blockchain key in your browser. Please note that your keystore file and password never leave your computer - but are processed in the browser. You will be logged in.


If you were unable to download the blockchain key and have therefore copied its content into the clipboard, click the second tab that says With keystore text from the clipboard, paste your keystore file content (blockchain key) from the document where you saved it, and provide the password to decrypt it.

This will unlock your blockchain key in your browser. Please note that your keystore file and password never leave your computer - but are processed in the browser. You will be logged in.


Step 3: Your login / unlock is complete

Your blockchain key is now loaded into the browser and all CargoX Platform challenges are signed automatically by the browser. You do not need to do anything else. You need to repeat this process if you log out of your account or if you lock your blockchain key.
