When I open a Ripple account, I can choose to fetch my wallet from

  • Payward, Local Browser
  • Payward
  • Local Browser

What does this mean? Can someone elaborate on the differences, and when is each option appropriate?

Are there still 2 people voting to close ripple questions, despite being consensus on meta that they are in-topic? How childish they are? –  Lohoris Feb 22 '13 at 18:53

@Lohoris - not just voting to close, but without identifying themselves... –  ripper234 Feb 22 '13 at 20:12

@StephenGornick - why don't you come talk about it here? meta.bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/335/… –  ripper234 Feb 23 '13 at 4:14

@Lohoris - of course he has the right to vote to close, it's just childish and futile to insist on doing this if the vast majority will disregard it. –  ripper234 Feb 23 '13 at 14:30

If others join me and Ripple questions continuously get closed then maybe the topic of what the community wants here gets revisited. Incidentally, I want Ripple to succeed. I just want the Bitcoin SE to remain the Bitcoin SE. –  Stephen Gornick Feb 24 '13 at 7:47

  • "Payward, Local Browser" tries to fetch your wallet from Payward and if an account has not been found or if the Payward is not available / you are offline, it tries to fetch the wallet from local storage.
  • "Payward" only looks in Payward.
  • "Local" only looks in local storage.

P. S. You've set where to save your wallet in https://ripple.com/client/#/register right after the "Create Wallet" button.

What's a payward? And why must this post be 30 long? –  user4825 May 4 '13 at 10:57
    
You can store your encrypted wallet in Payward server, and access it everywhere, not only from your local machine. –  Vahe Hovhannisyan May 9 '13 at 18:51
