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.
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.
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.
Choose here the "Create a new wallet" option. The other option is to access an existing address in case you already have one.
These few screens introduce you to basic safety practices regarding the management of your seed phrase and wallet.
We strongly recommend you read them, even if it's not the first time you create a wallet. A safety refresher can never hurt!
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.
Let's verify here that you have backed up your seed phrase. If you haven't, you can still click "Back" and back it up. It's really important to do it properly now, so you'll be all set from now on.
This check won't ask you all the words, only a few of them. Make sure to enter the seed word number asked.
That's it, you're done creating a new wallet!
You can now start using your wallet, as well as see and share your public Bitcoin and Ethereum addresses in the "Addresses" tab of the app.
