Create a Wallet

​
To get started on TendieSwap, the first thing you'll need is to set up a wallet that supports Binance Smart Chain (BSC). Wallets are available both on desktop computers and on smartphone devices. Choose the wallet that fits your needs best; read through the information tabs to learn about each of the options.
When you are 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.
