You must configure here the sandbox or official system, and the credentials to be used to connect to Rainbow cloud services and optionnaly, an HTTP Proxy.
    Since v1.3.0 and it's dependency rainbow-node-sdk v1.39.0 connection to Rainbow is well supported. Thanks to Loic Jehanno for his work.
    End of september 2018, a valid AppID/secret will be mandatory. Please check the HUB to create one: HUB
