imToken Tutorial

Wallet Guideline

How to Get Started

1. Install TokenPocket

Firstly download and install the relevant version of imToken.

After successfully downloading imToken and opening it.

2. Create your wallet

  1. Tap on “Create Wallet”.

The picture below is a screenshot of the dialogue that will be opened.

2. Give your wallet a name. This can be any name you choose.

3. GIve it a password. Make this a very strong password that you don’t use anywhere else, write it down in a notebook and keep it in a safe place.

4. You can create a password hint to help you remember your password easily, but the best way is to have it written down on paper and kept very safe.

5. Select “Agree on Terms of Service and Privacy”.

6. Tap “Create Wallet”.

NOTE: If you ever need to recover the wallet you create here, or any other Ethereum wallet you own, you can tap on “Import Wallet” and using the mnemonic phrase (or private key) you will be able to import a previously created wallet.

3. Backup your wallet

Now you should backup your private information.

1.Tap “Go Backup Now”.

2. Enter the password you just created.

The following screen will be presented:

It is extremely important that you do not store you mnemonic phrase on your phone or in your email as a screenshot, or anywhere digital for that matter, with the exception of a USB stick perhaps. Please write down the 12-word phrase in a notebook and keep it safe! Anyone that gains access to your mnemonic phrase will have access to your assets!

3. Tap “Understood”.

Write these 12 words down in your notebook in the same order they appear on the screen.

4. Tap the words in the same order that you wrote them down and tap “Confirm”.

Once confirmed you will be asked if you want to remove mnemonic, tap “OK”. This removes the 12 word phrase from your device. The only place these words exist now is in your notebook and on the blockchain (encrypted of course!).

Congratulations you have just created your first private ERC20 Wallet! Give yourself a pat on the back :)

4. Get your new privately owned wallet address!

Tap on the name of your wallet (in this case I named the wallet Test) to be taken to the following screen.

Tap “Copy Wallet Address”. You can now paste this into the field that requires your Ethereum wallet address for the trip of Newland!
