ioPay V2 wallet guide
The ioPay V2 wallet can be downloaded from https://iopay.me/ via your mobile phone or your PC.
After downloading and installing the application on your preferred device, you will be provided with two options: “Create Wallet” and “Import Wallet”
- Select Import Wallet only if you have an account with ioPay, and you have your private key backed up from your previous wallet.
- Select Create Wallet to create a new wallet. You will be asked to create a passcode that you can use to unlock your wallet. Be sure to write down your private key and store it in a safe place. Your private key/passcode cannot be recovered. If you lose it your money is gone forever.
After setting your pass-code, you will be asked to pick a thumbnail of your choice and also to pick a name for the new wallet.
You will get a long alphanumeric key called a private key. This key gives full access to your wallet and assets.
Once your wallet is created, you can proceed to send, receive and stake your assets. There are the “Token” & “NFT” tabs where you can see a list of all your assets and NFTs on this page.
If you have any asset you can’t see, then you need to obtain the asset contract address and click on the *+Add* icon. Paste the contract address there, and you will see your asset.
On the bottom menu bar, you will see the activities button, it gives you access to your transaction history. You also have access to the explorer section, which by default will automatically decode your address on the IoTeX blockchain. You can also use this explorer to check any other IoTeX wallets or transactions. Just input the address or the transaction hash you need to the search field.
The next 2 icons on the bottom menu bar are the Discover and the News sections:
- The Discover section provides you with hundreds of dApps to browse on several blockchains (such as IoTeX, Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain (BNB Chain), and Polygon Network).
- The News section contains the feed where users can check all the important and necessary news and updates of the IoTeX blockchain.
Finally, the last icon is the Settings, where users can switch from any blockchain network to another. The IoTeX mainnet, Ethereum Network, Binance Smart Chain, and Polygon blockchain are available by one-click switch, and you can also choose and customize the Antenna Network based on your preference.
From the General subsection, you can switch the wallet language to any other language from the available list.
Also, you may decide to hide or show your web3 address, which is like using an Ethereum compatible wallet address on the ioPay wallet.
Developers can access the developer mode option, where you can build anything you want. The IoTeX blockchain is very flexible and the company offers a one-of-a-kind Halo grant to build on the IoTeX platform. Developers can benefit greatly from the funding, the expert technical support IoTeX provides, and the support network of the larger IoTeX community Learn more about the Halo Grants Program.
The Security & Privacy sub-section is where you can change the wallet passcode and manage dApps authentication.
