Using Desktop Wallet for the first time

Step 1 - Download the latest Crypto.com DeFi Desktop Wallet.

Step 2 - Run the Desktop Wallet and click "Get Started".

Step 3 - Before creating or restoring your wallet, you need to create an App password to protect your desktop wallet. The password is required to be at least 8 characters, containing a letter, a number, and a special character.

Remark: It is recommended to create a stronger and unguessable password. A password labeled as "safe" and "strong" means that a person would have an extremely low probability to guess it correctly.

Step 4 - Choose between "Restore Wallet" and "Create Wallet"

The wallet will resume auto-update once the above expiration date has passed.

4. Export your Wallet Recovery Phrase

1.1 - Create Wallet

Step 1 - Before your wallet is ready to be created, please make sure you select the following options accordingly:

  • Input the wallet name of your choice.

  • For the network, three options of "TESTNET Croeseid 4", "MAINNET", and "CUSTOM DEVNET" are given:

⦁ "TESTNET Croeseid 4" is our Cosmos-based testnet-croeseid-4.

⦁ "MAINNET" is referring to Crypto.org Chain mainnet.

⦁ You may also set up your own network with the custom configuration.

  • In this demonstration, we will be creating a testnet address and connecting to the current testnet-croeseid-4, therefore, we select "TESTNET Croeseid 4" as the network option.

Step 2 - After inputting the information, hit "Create Wallet" and the success window will pop up.

Step 3 - Once you click "Continue", the wallet will automatically generate the recovery phrase for users. Please make sure you record down all the phrases in order to restore your wallet in the future.

Step 2 - You will find the QR code and the address of your current wallet account.

3. Staking Operations

Crypto.org Chain is based on Tendermint Core's consensus engine, it relies on a set of validators to participate in the proof of stake (PoS) consensus protocol who are responsible for committing new blocks in the blockchain. Token holders might stake their tokens to validators to secure the network and earn rewards. Particularly, we can:

  • Delegate to a validator;

  • Withdraw staking rewards from a validator;

  • Redelegate from a validator.

  • Undelegate from a validator.

3.1 - Delegate to a validator

Step 1 - To begin staking, go to the "Staking" page and direct to the second tab, "Delegate Funds." You can select your preferred validators with the delegation amount.

You can input the validator’s information either by:

  • Clicking the list button under "Validator address" and selecting your preferred validators.

  • Copying the complete address of your preferred validator, and pasting the validator’s "Operator Address" (begin with tcrocncl... for testnet) under "Validator address." Then specify the amount that you would like to delegate.

Remark: To support the decentralization of the network, we suggest all users delegate your funds to validators with fewer shares, but please make sure you've done research into the validators you selected before the delegation to minimize your risk of unnecessary fund loss.

Step 2 - Similar to sending a transaction, you can review and confirm the transaction details on the Desktop Wallet first shown below, click "Review" and enter your app password.

Step 3 - Now you will proceed to the confirmation section. Make sure you input the correct information of your wallet and then hit "Confirm"

Now you’ve successfully staked the desired amount to your selected validator!

3.2 - Withdraw the reward from a validator

Step 1 - Under "Staking Rewards" on the "Staking" page, your staking reward amount from different validators will be displayed as below:

Step 2 - Click the "Withdraw Reward" under "Action," and input your app password. Similar to other transaction operations, you should review and double-check the transaction details "Confirm" before processing "Confirm"

Please note that all of your available rewards from a validator will be withdrawn in the transaction.

Now you should see a success message on the Desktop Wallet, and your rewards withdrawal transaction was broadcasted successfully!

3.3 - Redelegate the staking from a validator

Step 1 - In the case that you plan to redelegate your staked funds from a validator, you can go to Delegation Management under the "Staking" page. The "Redelegate Stake" option is highlighted in green color.

Step 2 - You can click "Redelegate Stake" to redelegate your staked tokens from a validator now. On the popup window, likewise to delegating to a validator, you will be required to fill in the validator’s address (you can either choose your preferred validator from the validator list or input its complete address), and the amount that you would like to redelegate from a validator, review and confirm the transaction details on the Desktop Wallet, input your app password again, then click "Confirm" to process.

Now you should see a success message on the Desktop Wallet, and your funds are redelegated to another preferred validator!

3.4 - Undelegate the staking from a validator

Step 1 - If you plan to undelegate your staked funds from a validator, you can go to Delegation Management under the "Staking" page. "Undelegate Stake" option is highlighted in red color.

Step 2 - You can undelegate your staked tokens from a validator by clicking "Undelegate Stake". Afterwards, you can specify the amount of token that you would like to undelegate from a validator, review and confirm the transaction details on the Desktop Wallet, input your app password again, then click "Confirm" to process.

Now you should see a success message on the Desktop Wallet, and your undelegation transaction was successfully processed!
