What is Scatter?

Scatter is an open-source desktop wallet and development suite application that allows users to use it as a cryptocurrency wallet and account platform to sign transactions and access applications that interacts with blockchains (eg. Ethereum, EOS, Tron) through transactions and smart contracts. Scatter can reportedly provide personal information to the above applications without exposing users’ keys.

Some of the biggest EOS and Tron blockchain applications/games that use Scatter are HireVibes, EOS Knight and EVeripedia. The suite can be used for crypto asset management as well and is reported to integrate Ethereum’s Web3 API, that means most existing Ethereum applications can interact with Scatter-supported wallet applications.

Allocating CPU, NET and RAM

In EOSIO blockchain, users will need to stake EOS cryptocurrency tokens to acquire CPU, and bandwidth on the ecosystem. Hence, if you feel that it is slow while using application, check if the CPU and bandwidth resources are sufficient. Click Wallet at the top left panel, select your linked account and you will see the resource page.

CPU refers to Central Processing Unit meaning the processing power, while NET means internet bandwidth. RAM (Random Access Memory) is used to store data on the EOSIO blockchain and is needed for creation of EOS account or for developers to work on apps. 5k of RAM should be sufficient for a normal user. If any of the 3 resources are running low on your account, transfer some EOS tokens to your Scatter wallet and click Manage on the respective resource to proceed accordingly. Please note that this is only applicable for EOSIO blockchain.
