Key Management

In this article we will guide you through the key management strategy on the client side of your dApp on the PulseNet chain

Setup Web3

web3.js is a collection of JavaScript libraries that allow our client-side application to communicate with the blockchain. web3 has been configured to communicate via Metamask.

web3.js doc is here

Connect to PULSE network

    // mainnet 
     const web3 = new Web3(‘’);
    // testnet
    const web3 = new Web3(‘’);


Set up account

If the installation and instantiation of web3 was successful, the following should successfully return a random account:

					    const account = web3.eth.accounts.create();


Recover account

Assuming you have created a copy of the private key for your account, this can later be used to restore your account.

					    const account = web3.eth.accounts.privateKeyToAccount("$private-key")


Full Example

					const Web3 = require('web3');
async function main() {

    const web3 = new Web3(‘’);
    const loader = setupLoader({ provider: web3 }).web3;

    const account = web3.eth.accounts.create();
