Running multiple wallets
Separate your funds into multiple wallets, for different purposes
You might want to create and use multiple wallets for different usage. The goal is to separate your finances, so they won’t mix up. This approach will also help you gain a bit more privacy (never linking all of your available funds).
Same as on Bitcoin core wallet, launching multiple wallets on Rhombus Core is as easy as adding few
-wallet= parameters - depending on your setup and location of your wallet files.
For example, if your wallets are in these locations:
.rhombus/ primary-wallet.dat market/ wallet.dat savings/ wallet.dat
You would use these parameters:
$ rhombus-qt -wallet=primary-wallet.dat -wallet=market -wallet=savings
Notice that for the
primary-wallet.dat in the root folder, we added
.dat to the parameter, which tells Rhombus Core that it’s directly a wallet file, not its folder (as in case of
This will open one Rhombus Core client with all 3 wallets loaded. You can then easily switch between them by choosing active wallet from the new dropdown (see screenshot).
Rhombus Desktop launches with all available wallets loaded by default.
Therefore no extra configuration or setup is needed.
Create a new custom application launcher in
$ nano ~/.local/share/applications/"Rhombus Core".desktop
Then paste and edit these lines (mainly
Exec=) to match your setup:
#!/usr/bin/env xdg-open [Desktop Entry] Encoding=UTF-8 Name=Rhombus Core GenericName=Rhombus Core Comment=RHOM Wallet Exec=/home/xxxxxx/rhombus/bin/rhombus-qt -wallet=xxxxxx.dat -wallet=xxxxxx Terminal=false Icon=rhombus Keywords=Finance Type=Application Categories=Others Name[en_US]=Rhombus Core
