Getting Started GuideLast edited 3 months ago
No matter if you are entirely new to THORWallet DEX or just want to refresh something, this Getting Started guide is going to provide you with everything you need to know. If you do not yet have the app installed, have a look at our "How to install THORWallet DEX" guide.
The first thing after opening the app is a Security Check. The Security Check is performed every time upon opening the app, and it makes sure that THORChain's third-party services are working correctly. After the Security Check, the following screen will appear:
Here you can either create a new wallet or import an existing THORWallet. We will continue with Create Wallet. After clicking on Create Wallet, you will be asked to write down your unique seed. You can view your seed phrase by clicking on “Backup Wallet”.
Now you will see the following screen with your seed phrase. You can copy the seed to your clipboard and keep it on your phone, but it is highly recommended to keep it off-line. See our guide on "How to store a seed phrase". Remember that both the words and their order matter, so make sure to double-check both the words and their order. Once you are sure that everything is correct, check the box and click on continue.
In the next step, you will create a six-digit PIN code for the wallet. First, you have to enter your PIN and after you have to confirm it.
After setting up the PIN, you can opt to unlock the wallet with biometrics. To do so, click on “Enable biometrics” or click on skip if you do not.
Finally, you can scroll through some information slides about THORWallet’s functionalities or just click on “Get Started”, which will bring you to the “home page” of the app.
