Pick the Chrome extension if you're using the Brave browser. We'll be using Chrome in this tutorial, but the rest of the steps should be the same for every Yoroi edition. Continue to the next step by opening the application or browser extension.

 

2(a): Create a new wallet

 Skip to the next step if you want to restore an existing wallet.

  • If you're not restoring an existing Yoroi or Daedalus wallet, you'll need to start from scratch:

  • Choose "Create Wallet" and assign it a name as well as a secure password for spending. 

  • After that, you'll be asked to write down a mnemonic phrase. Keep this offline.

  • Once you've saved the phrase, you'll be prompted to type it in yourself by clicking on the words in the correct order.

  • After you've created your wallet, you can transfer money to it from an exchange (Binance, Coinbase, and so on) or another wallet.
