Create an wallet account
If you check your newly created account on Subscan, it won't show up until you deposit some Nodle Cash tokens.
Go to https://nodleprotocol.io/#/accounts, select Nodle Mainnet, and install the Polkadot chrome extension to create an account.
Nodle has migrated from the Stellar blockchain to our own, native Nodle Chain. Nodle is built upon Parity Substrate, and if you’re interested you can read a lot more about how it works here. We decided to migrate for a couple of reasons; primarily being that with a native blockchain, we can enable the features outlined in our Nodle white paper (like proof of connectivity, and our own decentralized PKI), while maintaining control over our own destiny. Stellar enabled us to build a powerful MVP (Minimum Viable Product) and prove that we could build a business around incentivized IoT connectivity. It’s time for the next step. It is our pleasure to introduce the Nodle Chain. The Nodle chain is faster, more decentralized, and add more utility to your Nodle Cash Cryptocurrency (Like built in, decentralized certificates).
How to Create a Native Nodle Wallet
Nodle is built upon Polkadot Substrate, making it compatible with most Polkadot wallets. For this tutorial, we will use the official wallet. Ledger support is coming soon, and we will update accordingly.
Step 1: Go to the nodleprotocol.io (Nodle Portal)
Note: We recommend using a Chrome based browser like Chrome or Brave. If you are using Brave (which you should be) please turn off ‘shields’ as it can cause errors.
Step 2: Make Sure You are Connecting to The Nodle Chain Mainnet
Sometimes the Wallet will default to another blockchain (As we interoperate with the Polkadot Ecosystem. If So Go to the top left and select the Nodle Network".
Step 3: Set Up the Polkadot.js Extension:
- There are a few ways to create an account; we are going to recommend the most user-friendly way.
- Install the Polkadot-js extension, which is similar to Ethereum’s Metamask, except it doesn't do this.
- Install the chrome extension:
Step 4: Create an Account
Now, go back to the wallet and reload. There may be a popup asking for your permission to connect.
If the Polkadot Add on is not showing, Simply click Extensions, and pin to your browser (Then click the extension to open)
Follow the directions to generate your account, by clicking "+":
Make sure to backup your mnemonics
You have generated 12 words. Keep them extremely safe. If you lose these words, all of your funds will be lost. If someone else gets them, they can steal all of your cryptos.
Now that you’ve saved your seed words securely, give your account a name, and
Add a strong password. We recommend using a long, randomly generated password, stored in a password manager.
Now you have an account! Finish up:
Close the window by clicking outside it, and reload the page: You’ll be asked to give permission for the webpage to access the Polkadot-js chrome app. Please allow. If you have closed the webpage, you will be asked to give your password.
You're all set!
Nice work! You’re all ready to go. Bookmark this page and keep your seed words very safe.
