Tutorial: Set up your Coinbase Wallet

In order to receive and send IDON, you will need to set up an ERC-20 wallet. Coinbase Wallet is a user-friendly and safe option for using on your mobile phone.

1. Wallet Introduction

Coinbase Wallet is a mobile crypto wallet providing access to a wide variety of crypto assets. The wallet supports Ethereum and ERC20 tokens.  IDON is an ERC20 token. Coinbase Wallet is not an Idoneus product. The wallet is built and backed by Coinbase, one of the worlds' foremost cryptocurrency exchanges, making it safer and more secure.

CAUTION:

1. Do not confuse Coinbase Wallet with Coinbase Exchange. At this moment, Coinbase Exchange does NOT support IDON. You can link your Coinbase Wallet to your Coinbase Exchange account. However, please do NOT send IDON from your Coinbase Wallet to your Coinbase Exchange account. These tokens will get lost forever!

5. On the next screen, you will be asked to choose how you would like to protect your wallet. You can choose from passcode and your device protection service - FaceID, Fingerprint, etc. We recommend to set up both.

6. Next you will be prompted to backup your wallet with a secret recovery passphrase. This will give you access to your wallet, in the event your hardware is lost or stolen. You should never share this recovery phrase with anyone else. Basically treat it like the pincode on your ATM card.

Save the recovery phrase by writing it on a piece of paper that you store somewhere safely, or save it in your password manager.
