Creating an Algorand Wallet
Setting up your Algorand wallet.
Before you get started, you'll need to decide which Algorand compatible wallet you would like to use to interact with the Blockchain.


There are a number of Algorand wallets available to use with Pact. These include:
N.B. Both My Algo and Pera Wallet can typically be used in 'hardware wallet mode' in combination with Ledger - Guide to setting your Ledger device can be found here - however this is not yet supported on Pact at this time.
For this setup, we will be using My Algo Wallet. This 'walkthrough' covers the initial setup process and connecting your wallet to Pact.

Getting started

  1. 1.
    Go to My Algo.
  2. 2.
    Click 'Access Now'.
3. Read and accept the Terms of Service.
4. Create a password of your choice. You will need this password every time you access My Algo from this device.
5. In the My Algo dashboard, click 'New Wallet'.
6. Next some tips on your mnemonic phrase and private keys will appear. Please familiarise yourself with these security tips and prepare to record your 25 word mnemonic phrase.
  • Scroll over the tiles to reveal each section of your mnemonic phrase.
  • Write down and back up your 25 words in the correct order.
  • Do not share these words with anyone! These words can be used to steal your funds.
7. Once written down and stored securely, click 'Continue'.
8. Verify the phrase you've just recorded and give your wallet a name. Then click 'Create wallet'.
You are now ready to use your new wallet!
