The first step is to download the local ATMCoin wallet. This is a Java VM that runs a local webserver securely on the local machine. You run it by executing the 'run.bat' for Windows, or 'run.sh' for Linux.
Execute Java Webserver
Once you've downloaded the wallet, you simply execute the 'run.bat' for Windows, or 'run.sh' for Linux, and the VM will start up in a command window. Leave this window open as it is your link to the ATMCoin wallet interface. It may take a few minutes to fully start, give it up to 10 minutes depending on your computer's power.
Log In via Web Browser
The ATMCoin wallet is different that most, as the wallet that you run, doesn't run an interface with it... instead, there is a beautiful web-based interface (that is actually local on your computer) that you access via your browser of choice!
Local and Hosted Wallets
The downloads for the ATMCoin wallet, as well as links to what are called 'hosted wallets' are below. The difference between hosted wallets and local wallets, are that you do not have to have any of the blockchain content on your computer in order to access a hosted wallet. However, you must trust the host of the hosted wallet to make sure they aren't trying to steal your information. Only use a hosted wallet if you trust the host of the wallet!

The ATMCoin local wallet is the wallet you should use for most things, this not only allows you access to the whole of ATMCoin network without using anyone else's hosted wallet, or having to reach outside your computer in any other way aside from the blockchain. The local wallet is a Java based application, which is the 'main framework' for the ATMCoin network. Everyone should utilize this wallet whenever possible to minimize risks associated with potential attacks on hosted wallet setups.
