I'm trying to split my ETH/ETC from a presale wallet in Mist v0.8.10. I've followed the original Steemit post on running the split contract yet when I go to run the contract it doesn't show a field to input the number of coins I wish to split. I would obviously like to send a small amount first to ensure if all works as desired. Any ideas on what I'm missing?


  • Could you post a bit more information please? What split contract exactly are you referring to? I would assume that the contract just splits all of the funds you send to it, so there's no need to input the value. – Tjaden Hess Jul 19 '17 at 10:31

  • On the post from Steemit it showed an extra field which would allow you to specify the number of coins you want to split. I'm not prepared to split my entire balance without a test to make sure it works properly. – Guy1979 Jul 19 '17 at 11:35
  • You don't need to. What client/interface are you using to send the transaction? – Tjaden Hess Jul 19 '17 at 11:43
  • I'm using mist v0.8.10 – Guy1979 Jul 19 '17 at 11:54

In Ethereum Wallet, on the contract interface page, there is a drop-down list under Write To Contract. Select the Split function, enter the two addresses that you wan to split to, then select the sender address under Execute From and input the amount that you want to split in the box under Send Ether. You can click the word Ether to select Finney, which will let you input the ammount to send in units of 1/1000 ETH.


It appears that for some reason this functionality is only available in the Ethereum Wallet application, and not in the full Mist browser. Please install Ethereum Wallet from here: https://github.com/ethereum/mist/releases

  • That's exactly what the steemit post showed... what I'm saying is that the Send Ether field doesn't appear. There is no option to send a portion of the Eth I have in "Main Account". It will only let me Execute without specifying the amount. When I hit Execute it takes me to the next screen and makes it seems as though the Contract will run correctly but without specifying a number of ETH/ETC to split. Any ideas from there? Have I left something out of the json interface when writing the contract? – Guy1979 Jul 19 '17 at 12:14
  • I still see the send ETH field, in mist 0.8.10. If you post a screenshot, maybe I can see what's wrong – Tjaden Hess Jul 19 '17 at 12:15
  • This is embarassing... I can't figure out how to paste a screenshot here bud. – Guy1979 Jul 19 '17 at 14:17
  • You, sir, are a legend. Thank you for your help. I got the wallet application and all seems to work. – Guy1979 Jul 20 '17 at 6:44
