Getting Started

The first iteration of the Beam web wallet offers users a simplified version of the desktop and mobile wallets. Version 1.0 of the web wallet only allows users to send, receive or hold coins, with more advanced features (DAPPS, Atomic Swaps) in the works for future releases.
The web wallet will always be on in the background, ready to receive new transactions at any given moment.

Generating a seed phrase

Keep your wallet seed phrase secret, and never share your seed phrase with anyone!
Please do not write your seed phrase down electronically, take a screenshot or store it anywhere vulnerable to cyber attacks. Pen and paper are unhackable and recommended. Make multiple copies of your seed phrase and store them somewhere safe!

Verifying your seed phrase

Verify your seed phrase by re-entering your seed phrase in random order.

Create a password

Select a password (eight characters minimum, at least one letter, number, or special symbol) that will give you access to your Beam wallet. Your wallet password is an extra lock for your device, while your seed phrase is a private key that identifies your wallet and can access your funds.
Choose a strong password.

Your web wallet is ready

Users can Send, Receive and hold Beam coins once the web wallet metamask synchs up with the Beam blockchain.
