Step 5

Create a password that has a minimum of 8 characters. Make sure this is strong and can’t be easily guessed.

Step 6

You will get a secret backup phrase so that you can back up and restore your account. Make sure to write these down somewhere and never share them with anyone or else someone can hack your wallet.

Click to reveal the phrase and write it down. And then click next.

Step 7

You are going to put the words from your phrase in the right order.

Step 8

You are all done setting up your wallet!

Step 9

Here is your wallet interface.

  • Your ETH address is the most important part of your wallet as it identifies your wallet from everyone else.

  • Your ETH Balance shows how much ETH you have in your wallet and the worth in UDC.

  • You can buy, send, and swap any coin that you want 

  • You can add tokens

You can add tokens by either searching up the name of the coin or by pasting in the token contract address. We recommend just pasting in the token contract address because searching up the name of a coin doesn’t always work especially if it's a small altcoin.
