Ethereum is a cutting-edge blockchain-based distributed computing platform, featuring smart contract functionality. It provides a decentralized virtual machine, the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), that can execute peer-to-peer contracts using a crypto-fuel called Ether.
You want to start by getting yourself set up with a wallet. You have some choices:
Get Ether, write smart contracts, build DApps, and dive into Ethereum:

I'm thinking of implementing an Ethereum backed token, instead of conventional gift cards/certificates, in a small mom 'n' pop retail shop. I'm not super naive, nor am I new to crypto, but I have many questions... Anybody feel like talking about this idea with me? Thanks!!
I'm on a Mac with High Sierra (Mac OS 10.13.5). I just added a new wallet contract to my Etherbase (my first wallet contract), and it showed up fine in the wallet. I also had a number of tokens I was monitoring.
The app crashed, and when it came back up, the wallet contract and tokens are nowhere to be seen. The tokens don't bother me so much--I can just re-add the contract again to monitor those. But I don't see an option to add a wallet that already exists. I don't want to create a new one.
More importantly, this has happened before with the tokens disappearing. Is there something off with my install that's causing this behavior?
My Etherbase Address: https://etherscan.io/address/0xBB56CDef384dF6c63c84365883B0961B1Cc6Acd6
I can still access my Etherbase account without a problem. The private key is working just fine.
Contract Address: 0x1b62409AE5397e0a50Bf73297AF75fa164eD0425
It shows the Contract Wallet was created successfully, and all my tokens are where I expect them to be, so I'm not worried about any of my currency being missing or the wallet being somehow destroyed.
When I try to watch the contract, I get an error re: being unable to parse the JSON interface.
I just want to get the wallet contract into the Ethereum Wallet app and have it stay there.
Thanks for your help.
EDIT 1 (2018 06 20 3:10P GMT): Edited post to add the wallet contract address and error message.
Also, I notice ¼ of the votes on this post were downvotes? What did I do?
EDIT 2 (2018 06 20 3:30 GMT): Edited to clarify I still have access to my main Etherbase account, including the private key. It's only the new wallet that is misbehaving.
EDIT 3 (2018 06 20 3:59 GMT): ABI posted in comment below for reference.
