How to use PPIO demo app

Overview

PPIO demo is our official decentralized personal cloud storage application based on PPIO.

Before using the app, you must generate a PPIO wallet account, save the keystore file and passphrase. These are the credentials for your PPIO wallet account and the app.

Step1: Generate a PPIO wallet account and get the keystore file

PPIO wallet is a blockchain wallet. Also, if you don't understand the concept of blockchain wallet, there will be many articles on Google.

Go to PPIO wallet to generate a PPIO wallet account. And this account can be used not only in the demo app but also PPIO CLI and PPIO SDK.
