Backup and Recovery

In your gun directory (usually ~/.gun) there are a couple of files that will cause pain if you lose them.


seed.txt contains your secret BIP39 seed phrase if you setup the wallet using gun setup seed. If you lose seed.txt you lose all your coins. If someone else gets their hands on it they can take all your coins. seed.txt never changes so you only ever need to take one backup.


If you lose database.sled you lose the coins from bets you have won or will win but haven't claimed yet. To guarantee you don't lose coins from this, you must backup database.sled after each bet. The best way to avoid loss of funds here is to claim your winnings in a timely manner.

Theoretically, it is possible to recover these with your main wallet but that hasn't been implemented yet.
