Over the past few months our team has been working on a major update of the wallet. An update we are pleased to announce has gone live today
The main features included in this release are:
XDEFI Wallet was not a Hierarchical Deterministic Wallet (HD Wallet) until the new version. We decided to add HD wallet support to make the migration from other wallet providers as seamless as possible.
With a HD Wallet (MetaMask, MyEtherWallet), you can derive a number of addresses from a…
One of the wonderful aspects of Decentralised Finance as a whole is the variety of different projects you can engage with. Your XDEFI wallet will serve as a gateway into many of the directions you wish to explore, and the first step to establishing this gateway will be in connecting your Wallet to decentralised applications.
Below we use a decentralised exchange as an example for interaction, however we’ve also included step by step directions just below the video.
A Ledger is a powerful tool, and one that puts the security of your crypto squarely in your hands. With our latest release you can now use Ledger on the Ethereum network using XDEFI Wallet. Doing so is an easy process by design.
The steps to connecting your Ledger to XDEFI are listed below, but for those of you more visually inclined here’s a video embed taking you through the process.
Whilst you can only restore an existing wallet upon onboarding using your seed phrase and wallet password, you can import a wallet from within XDEFI using a Keystore file (.txt or .json).
Below you’ll find a video showing you how to do so with more detailed instructions below it:
If you have your XDEFI (or other) secret phrase in hand, you can always reinstall your wallet easily on XDEFI Wallet. The process is incredibly straightforward
We’ve created a video walkthrough of this process, and included step by step instructions below
You should back up your Secret Phrase during the onboarding process. If you want to access it thereafter or download your keystore file, please read this article.
🚨 YOU SHOULD NEVER SHARE ANY OF THESE WITH ANYONE!! 🚨
Below you’ll find a video taking you through how to do both quickly. Step-by-step instructions can be found below the embeded video.
Viewing your Secret Phrase
Whilst we do not recommend using several wallets as a ‘rule of thumb,’ we understand the need for this functionality for some of our more advanced community members.
Though several wallets will require several secret phrases as a consequence, we now give you the ability to back up your wallets altogether through our ‘JSON’ backup process.
You’ll find a video showing you how to do so here, however if you need step-by-step instructions you’ll find them further down below the embed.
With XDEFI you have the freedom to create accounts within wallets, however we do understand it’s equally important for some of our community members to be able to create an entirely new wallet as needed.
🚨 If you are not an advanced user, we do not recommend creating several wallets as it requires dealing with several seed phrases 🚨
Below you’ll find a video explaining how you can do so, and further below the embed you’ll see step by step instructions taking you through how to do this.
Now that you have your XDEFI extension set up, you may wish to set up multiple accounts. Doing so is pretty simple.
We’ve put a video taking you through this process here, however for clarity, you’ll find step by step instructions below
If you already have a version of the extension installed, you should automatically be migrated to the latest version of the wallet.
If you’ve uninstalled your XDEFI Wallet, you’ll need to restore your old ‘legacy’ XDEFI Wallet. This should be painless, and can be done either by account or as a ‘bulk’ action.
This video walkthrough should prove helpful in this process, and you’ll find step-by-step explanations below the video to give further clarity.
