DeFi Wallet is designed to give you full control and secured custody of your crypto. We’re excited that you’ve chosen to embrace decentralization by using DeFi Wallet to help you store your digital assets safely and securely.

How to create your DeFi Wallet

  1. Download the DeFi Wallet

  2. Select your wallet creation method (3):

    A. Connect to App

    If you select [Connect to App] as a wallet creation method during the onboarding, you will go through the connect flow and a new wallet will be created afterwards.

    If you are importing an existing wallet and want to connect it to your App, please make sure you select [Import an existing wallet] during the onboarding. You will then be able to connect your imported wallet to your App from the Home Screen > Settings.

    B. Create a new wallet

    C. Import an existing wallet

    If you already have an existing wallet created on other applications like Ledger, Metamask or MyEtherWallet, you can easily import your existing wallet with a 12/18/24-word recovery phrase to the DeFi Wallet.

  3. Accept our Legal Terms & Conditions and Privacy Notice

  4. If you've selected wallet creation method A or C, you will be brought to the connect/import wallet flow

  5. Protect your wallet and set up a 6-digit passcode, as well as enable your biometrics authentication and 2FA here (otherwise these can be enabled under Settings)

  6. Backup your recovery phrase

    Your recovery phrase is very important, as it is the master private key to access your crypto assets.

    In the event of device theft, loss, or failure, your recovery phrase is literally the ultimate key to regaining access to your funds by importing your wallet on another device - will not keep a copy! DeFi Wallet allows you to skip the backup recovery phrase during onboarding, as we want to make sure you are in a safe and private place before you proceed to write down your 12-word phrase.

    Note: This step is not applicable for users that import an existing wallet.

  7. Return to the Home Screen

  8. Receive crypto and send your first transaction with the DeFi Wallet

Is the DeFi Wallet required in order to use the App or vice versa?

No, as the 2 apps are independent of one another, you don’t need to register for a App account in order to use the DeFi Wallet. Nor is it required to have a DeFi Wallet to use the App.

If you are using both apps, you may optionally connect your App account to your DeFi Wallet to easily transfer funds from one app to another, or vice versa.

Important Note: If this is the first time you are connecting (or reconnecting) your DeFi Wallet to your App account, you will have to wait 24 hours before you will be able to withdraw any crypto from your App to your newly connected DeFi Wallet.

This 24-hour lock only applies to withdrawals. You will still be able to buy crypto through your DeFi Wallet immediately after connecting to your App account.

Why is the DeFi Wallet not available in the App Store or Google Play?

Due to compliance regulations, unfortunately, we will not be able to distribute DeFi Wallet in crypto-sanctioned/prohibited countries or regions. Please visit this page as a reference for the list of countries/territories on crypto legality.

Why can't I download the DeFi Wallet App on the App Store or Google Play?

Due to security concerns, the DeFi Wallet App is not supported on devices with an outdated OS to ensure all security features are enforced.
Please update your device's OS version before downloading the app.

  • Android 7.0 and above

  • iOS 12 and above

Why can't I proceed with wallet creation on a jailbroken/rooted device?

Due to security concerns, we do not support wallet creation on jailbroken/rooted devices. Please use a standard device to download the app and proceed with the wallet creation.

If you currently have other wallets on your jailbroken/rooted devices, we strongly advise you to delete the app and use a standard device instead.

Jailbroken devices allow applications to gain root-level access to run third-party apps that are not approved by Apple App Store/Google Play. If malware is installed on the device, it can escalate and gain root access - complete access to all of the data on the device, including your recovery phrase!

Apart from the risk of malware, jailbroken/rooted devices are often filled with bugs that could constantly crash your device and disable other important security features that are used to protect your wallet.
