Tutorial #1: The Easiest Way to Create an Ethereum Wallet
In order to receive and store your Ockel Tokens you will need an ERC-20 compatible Ethereum wallet. We advice using the Eidoo wallet app. This is a highly secure and easy application to receive, store and manage your Ockel Tokens in one single app on your smartphone, tablet or PC. You can use this wallet without providing any personal information. In this tutorial we guide you through the installation process.
PLEASE NOTE: The Eidoo app is compatible with all Android and iOS smartphones, Windows 10, Mac OS and even Linux. The steps we describe in this tutorial are applicable for the iOS installation of the Eidoo App.
Step 1: First Things First, Download the Eidoo App
Step 2: Getting Started
After downloading the app, you will be asked to follow a wizard with basic information about the Eidoo wallet. Take the time to read the information and complete the wizard.
Step 3: Creating your Ethereum wallet
After completing the wizard, tap on “Create a new Wallet” to create your ERC-20 compatible Ethereum wallet. Carefully read the Terms and Conditions and click on “I agree, go next”.
Step 4: Set a Password
Up next is the important part of this tutorial: Setting up a password to secure your wallet. Follow the instructions as shown in the app.
WARNING: Save your password carefully as you won’t be able to reset or recover your password! Also, Ockel Computers is not able to recover your password for you.
Step 5: Backup Your Ethereum Wallet
After setting up a password, you’ll also need to set up a backup code for your wallet. With the backup code you can retrain access to your wallet in case you forget your password or lose the device you’re registering your wallet on to.
To create a backup, you’ll need to write down a series of 12 words in the order as shown on a sheet of paper or in a text document. We suggest to store the 12-word set somewhere safe, please do not keep this backup phrase on your device.
To verify you have written the correct 12-word set, you’ll be asked to repeat the backup code to complete the application registration process.
WARNING: Save your backup code carefully as you won’t be able to reset or recover your backup code! Please note that Ockel Computers is not able to recover the backup code for you.
