Create Account on Ethereum Network

This section describes how to create an new account on Ethereum network.

Now my private Ethereum network is running. But it's do nothing at this moment. It is like starting a new bank with no money, no clients, and no transactions!

Since I am the only node running on my Ethereum network, I should start to create an Ether account for my self.

Here what I did to create an account for myself:

> personal.newAccount()
Passphrase: ******
Repeat passphrase: ******
"0x05d4e1a499775ce9d681abd50bda655c7b5ccb90"

> eth.accounts
["0x05d4e1a499775ce9d681abd50bda655c7b5ccb90"]

> eth.getBalance(eth.accounts[0])
0

Ok, I have an Ether account on my private Ethereum now. But it has no Ether money in it.

The passphrase is the only key to access this account. So keep it in a safe place.
