How to create a Bitcoin Wallet address

In this tutorial, we show you how to get your very own Bitcoin wallet and address in minutes with our mobile app Bridge Wallet. With it, you will be able to send, receive, buy and sell Bitcoin from your phone.

1: Download Bridge Wallet

Bridge Wallet is a free mobile application developed by Mt Pelerin for your smartphone that you can find on both Google Play and on the App Store.

Download the app, install it and then launch it.

2: Create a password

The first step after launching the app is to create a password and confirm it, which will allow you to access the wallet later on.

Make sure to choose a password that you will remember, as there isn't any "I forgot my password" option for security reasons.

6: Your seed phrase

This screen displays your seed phrase, which is the only way to access and restore your wallet and all its content.

Never share your seed phrase, make sure you write it down now and store it somewhere safe.

If someone else gets access to your seed phrase, you will lose your wallet's content.
