Creating your first dYdX wallet

Here’s a video of a step-by-step guide on how to create your dYdX wallet using the Leap iOS mobile app .👇

Create Dydx Wallet

1. Install the Leap iOS app on your mobile device

2. When you open the app, you will be presented with two options: create a new wallet or import an existing wallet. If you want to create a completely new wallet, choose the option to create a new wallet.

3. You will be shown a seed phrase. Make sure to save this phrase in a safe and secure location, as it is the only way to recover your wallet. Do not share this phrase with anyone. The seed phrase shown below is for demo purposes.

4. Add the missing words from the secret recovery phrase you have noted down with you. We have enabled this extra step to ensure you write your secret recovery phase with yourself on a piece of paper. Note: We won’t be able to help you recover the wallet if you lost your seed phrase.

5. Your wallet is now set up and ready to use. You can now use your Leap wallet to access your assets and interact with the dYdX Network, including staking dYdX tokens and dApps in the dYdX ecosystem using Leap mobile dApp browser.

Welcome aboard! You now have the best experience to navigate dYdX securely.

Please note that the Leap wallet is a self-custodial wallet which means you are always in control of your funds and make sure you keep your seed phrase safe.

dYdX is a leading decentralized exchange that currently supports perpetual trading. dYdX runs on smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain, and allows users to trade with no intermediaries.

dYdX v4 or the dYdX chain is a standalone open-source blockchain software based on the Cosmos SDK and Tendermint Proof-of-stake consensus protocol. It features a fully decentralized, off-chain, orderbook and matching engine capable of scaling to orders of magnitude more throughput than any blockchain can support. dYdX v4 marks the full decentralization of the dYdX protocol, and the unique combination of decentralization, scalability, and customizability that Cosmos offers.
