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:
  • Download and install only the latest version from an official source.
  • Follow the setup guide carefully.
  • Safely back up your recovery phrases.
  • NEVER share your recovery phrases with anyone, under any circumstances.
  • NEVER input your recovery phrase to a website or app, other than your wallet app.
