A blockchain wallet is very important in the blockchain ecosystem, it is a user’s gateway to the blockchain world.
Neuron Wallet is a CKB wallet produced by the Nervos Foundation, it holds your keys and can create and broadcast transactions on your behalf. The functionality of the Neuron Wallet is focused on transfer of CKBytes and deposit/withdrawal functions of the Nervos DAO.
If you want to create and broadcast transactions, you will need to run a CKB node or rely on a 3rd party’s node to connect to the Nervos CKB blockchain. It is convenient to run a CKB (for anyone!) and it’s also risky to relay on a 3rd party node.
With the v0.26.0 release of Neuron Wallet, a CKB node is now included in the wallet and configured to connect to the CKB Mainnet. After installation, as you open the Neuron Wallet, the bundled Mainnet node will run.
If you prefer to run your own node (maybe for development purposes), you still can. Please make sure the node is running before launching the Neuron wallet, the wallet will then connect to your local node instead of the one bundled in the wallet.
