Create a Wallet

ERC-20 supported wallet is needed (ex: Metamask, Trust Wallet)

To get started on CoinCollect, the first thing you'll need is to set up a wallet that supports Polygon Network (EVM based - ERC-20 ). Wallets are available both on desktop and mobiles. You'll need to choose the wallet that fits your needs best.

When you're setting up a wallet, be sure to:

  • āœ… Download and install only the latest version from an official source.

  • āœ… Follow the setup guide carefully.

  • āœ… Safely back up your recovery phrases.

  • āŒ NEVER share your recovery phrases with anyone, under any circumstances.

  • āŒ NEVER input your recovery phrase to a website or app, other than your wallet app.

Smartphone/Mobile or Desktop wallet?

Mobile device wallets and desktop-based wallets have different strengths and weaknesses. Consider which fits your needs better to help decide which type of wallet to use.
