thx for the post. I had a few questions. When running this command:

geth account new

Does this create a wallet?

What if I have a hardware wallet and do not want to use a software wallet, is it possible?

Also after running C:\> geth --rpc How long do I have to wait? It seems I have been waiting over 10 hours and its still processing something. Is this normal?



when you do geth account new

this creates a new wallet address and it does prompt you to save it in a secure place. geth is a wallet in itself based on command line.

when you run it to sync the blockchain it does take along time because it is getting all the blocks on the network. i would advise you to check your hard drive as it may be full and the sync process will stop.
