I'd like to add the addresses of my contacts to Ethereum Wallet, so I could send them eth and Dentacoin tokens, easily. I could also check their balances and check if they got the money. How to add a new "read-only" contact without private key?


I looked for the easiest solution, so that even beginners could add contacts in Ethereum Wallet as long as this feature is not implemented officially.

Here's how to:

  1. Create a new text file and name it "Add_new_Ethereum_contact"
  2. Paste following text in that file:




Now, each time you want to add a new contact do:

  1. Replace 0x0... in the text file with the eth address of your contact
  2. Save the text file and open Ethereum Wallet
  3. Go to Accounts -> Import Account (or hit cmd+i on a Mac)
  4. Drag and drop the text file to "Drop wallet file"
  5. Optional: Rename the added "AccountX" to your contacts name
