Please do not use this application if you do not see a block number or the time from last block is too high (more that several minutes).
Such a case indicate a problem with the block explorer and you can lose you coins if you will use it despite this warning.

It is your responsibility to store the private key or password safely, this application will not remember it for you nor send them to any remote site.
An autodetection should recognize EarthCoin addresses and private keys, other inputs are considered as passwords. Please check everytime if the correct indicator is lighting.
If you use an EarthCoin address, the application switch itself to the read-only mode and you will not be able to send the EarthCoins.

The first one is for a "go back" transaction. It is a feature of blockchain transactions that you have always to spent all coins from the source transaction,
so if you wish only partial spent, you have to send the rest of the source amount to back your address. In advanced mode you can modify this address for the "go-back" transaction,
but it is your responsibility to use the correct address for which you own the private key. Optionally you can add arbitrary number of addresses to which you want send to coins in
a single transaction. You can also pay a transaction fee for speeding up your transaction and to support the network. If your device has a camera, you can scan the addresses from QR-codes.
