Know how to protect your coins

10 rules that are mandatory if you don't want to lose your coins/tokens:

1. Don't forget to protect your computer against attacks (a firewall with proper settings is mandatory). In order to use the Mooncoin wallet on your PC you must allow your wallet software to make connections through the firewall (Port: 44664). All other unknown connections should be blocked.
2. Please delete mooncoin.conf, unless you really know what you are doing with RPC and ports on your computer.
3. Encrypt your wallet using a strong and unique password! (16+ characters). This can be done from the Settings menu using the Encrypt Wallet function.
It's mandatory if you want to prevent a theft! Remember that if you lose or forget your password, you will lose your coins.
4. Your wallet must be already encrypted with a strong password, BEFORE you generate a new address to transfer coins to it.
5. Only backup encrypted wallets.
6. Close your Mooncoin client before making backup (copying your wallet.dat to an external hard drive or USB device).
7. Make backups after receiving large quantities of coins. The wallet must be encrypted BEFORE making backups.
8. Don't keep large quantities of coins in web wallets or at exchanges.
9. If you keep your coins at exchanges (e.g. Bleutrade.com, Novaexchange.com, C-cex.com), always use Two-Factor Authentication!
10. Compile the wallet by yourself, or use only trusted compilations (only if you trust a person who has compiled them), or use trusted exchanges/online wallets to hold your coins.

Look for your wallet.dat file in C:\Users\YourUserName\Appdata\Roaming\Mooncoin
or in C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\Application data\Mooncoin (Windows XP), if you lose or overwrite your wallet.dat file, you'll be not able to get an access to your coins.

Never disclosure your private keys to anyone!
