Diving into Web3 : Create your first Wallet and Buying Tezos Crypto

Diving into the wonderful world of Web3 isn’t always so easy. The first thing you’ll need to access Minteed is a Tezos wallet holding a minimum amount of crypto to carry out transactions.

This help documentation gets you started with creating a Tezos wallet with Kukai and buying Tezos (XTZ) cryptocurrency.

We advise you to do this on your desktop device rather than mobile.

Creating a Tezos Wallet

1. Go to kukai.app

We’ll be creating our Tezos wallet with Kukai but other options are available, such as Temple. Many wallets existe such as Temple, Ledger, Kukai and many others. We’ve got a soft spot for Kukai wallets because they are very beginner-friendly and easy to use, so we’ll be using Kukai for this demo, but you’re free to use any one you like.

First, go to kukai.app

2. Create your Tezos wallet

To create a Tezos wallet, two options are available. The first option is to sign-in with Google or another social app. The second option, which is more privacy oriented, is to create a Tezos wallet with a seed phrase and a password.

Option 1 : Creating a Tezos wallet with Google or another social app

Click on “continue with Google” and log in with your Google Account

Option 2 : Creating a Tezos wallet with a seed phrase

1. Click on “create New Wallet”

2. Write down your seed phrase. Store your seed phrase in a safe space, preferably off-line. The seed phrase is a backup of all contents of your wallet. When your wallet is corrupted, broken or lost you will need the seed phrase to recover it. If you lose your seed phrase then, you will not be able to access the funds stored in your wallet.

3. Verify your seed phrase

4. Set a strong password

5. Download your wallet file and open your newly created wallet to access the dashboard

3. Finding and copying your wallet address

To log-in to certain apps or to carry out transactions on the Tezos blockchain, you’ll need to specify your Tezos wallet address.

You can find your Tezos wallet address at the top left of your Kukai dashboard. Press on the copy icon to copy it. You can also scan your Tezos address QR code.

Buying Tezos cryptocurrency (XTZ)

We’ve tested many different options for buying Tezos crypto, and we’ve found that the quickest, simplest way to do so is by buying Tezos crypto with a card thanks to Moonpay, directly from your Kukai wallet.

That’s why we’ll continue with a demo on how to purchase crypto with Moonpay, but once again, many other options exist such as Binance, Coinhouse and many others.

1. Choosing your payment application

Click on “Get”

Click on Moonpay

2. Enter the amount you want to spend to buy Tezos (XTZ)

Enter the amount of euros (or other currency) you’d like to spend, it will automatically be converted to XTZ (Tezos cryptocurrency)

3. Enter and verify your email address

Enter your email address. You will then receive an email with a verification code that you’ll need to enter in Moonpay.

4. Select your payment method, add your personal info and enter your card details

First choose if you’d like to pay by card or wire transfer. The card option is the quickest.

You’ll then need to enter your personal information such as name, last name, date of birth and address.

Finally, enter your card details.

5. Confirm your transaction and receive your Tezos

Verify the different information and confirm the transaction. Your order will then be processed.

Go back to your dashboard, you should see your Tezos crypto appear in your wallets in a few minutes.

Congrats, you’re now ready to use the Minteed App and buy NFT Artworks !
