How do I set my IGWallet up?

With plenty of opportunities to be rewarded with IGG tokens in our online esports tournaments, let’s get you started with your IGWallet!

Please read this simply four step guide to setting up your wallet BEFORE setting up your IGWallet.

Step 1: Create your wallet password!

  • If you are setting up your IGWallet for the first time, you are required to create a wallet password, which you must keep safe.
  • It enables you to interact with your wallet, for example, sending tokens, changing your wallet password or export your private key. You must ensure your password meets the criteria!You must ensure your password meets the criteria!

Step 2: Create or import wallet

Once you have initialised your wallet, now you can decide whether you wish to create a new wallet or import an existing one:

a) Create

  • Any wallet created will have one private key attached; however, this wallet will be interoperable with Matic, Ethereum and TRON chains.
  • In other words, by creating a Matic wallet, you will also have an Ethereum and TRON based crypto wallet.

b) Import

  • You will be able to import any existing Matic, Ethereum or TRON wallets using your private key or recovery phrase.
  • If you are importing from MetaMask, then you will need to import with Private Key as the recovery phrase will not work.

Step 3: Name your wallet

  • You will be required to make a note of your recovery phrase/seed phrase, in the exact order it is displayed to you.
  • In the unfortunate event that you forget your wallet password or lose your private key, this phrase will allow you to regain access.
  • For this reason, we encourage you to keep this phrase in a secure place.
  • Once you’ve saved your recovery phase, click ‘Next’ and enter the requested words from your 12-word recovery phrase.

Please also note that the key words go left to right.
