    @HaĐANG MyCrypto is a wallet similar to MyEtherWallet, and the question is how to connect that wallet to a local parity private network.

  • If you can run a JSON-RPC command against your node, have you tried to call github.com/ethereum/wiki/wiki/JSON-RPC#net_version ? Sep 24, 2018 at 10:40

Before you connect to MyCrypto application you have to alter your node configuration to enable cors:

port = 8540
apis = ["web3", "eth", "net", "personal", "parity", "parity_set", "traces", "rpc", "parity_accounts"]
cors = ["all"]

In bottom left select "Change Network" and then "Add custom node". In the pop up from "Network" select "Custom" at the bottom.

A new row appear that allow setting some parameters. The important is "Chain Id" use the "networkID" in your chain specification, convert to decimal "0x2323" -> "8995".

For URL use from your node.toml the port from RPC section, for example "http://localhost:8540".

MyCrypto allows to configure a custom node. In top center there's a drop down "Ethereum (AUTO)". The last option is "+ Add custom node".

A popup appears where you can input an URL to your node, in "Network" you can select the network type, ie mainnet, ropsten, POA or custom to select a arbitrary network id.

If you connect from https://MyCrypto.com it will require your node to use a secure https URL, but you can download the desktop app to connect to a local node, ie "http://localhost:8545".

  • Hi i cant run the node is not work for me im using desktop app i have two node and its run fine in the terminal
