Aptos is a layer-1 blockchain project that focuses on providing the most secure blockchain and being available to a large number of users worldwide. Aptos has not launched a token, and there is no document about the project's token. Aptos has not launched the mainnet yet, so there are no details about the mainnet of this blockchain.
To be able to skin in this blockchain, of course, you will need an Aptos Wallet. In today's article, I will show you the details on how to create an Aptos Wallet.
What is the Aptos Wallet?
The Aptos wallet is where APT and AIT-3 standard tokens are stored on the Aptos blockchain. You can send and receive APT tokens as well as interact with applications on the Aptos platform.
In particular, this wallet is owned by you, so no one has the right to influence or use the wallet other than you.
What is included in an Aptos Wallet address?
An Aptos Wallet has 3 extremely important pieces of information you must take note:
- Wallet address: A sequence of numbers and characters used to send assets to the Aptos wallet. Others can transfer coins to you through the wallet address you provide. An Aptos (APT) wallet address will have the following format: 0x4184CED912A14E6AD2Ad4F4Cb3026aC866153c4d.
- Passphrase: A security key that can be understood as a password consisting of any 12 English keywords. If you want to perform the wallet recovery operation, you must go through the Passphrase login step. Format of a Passphrase: web erase horse you rubber potato maximum piece daughter dynamic trial male.
- Private Key: A string of letters and numbers to connect to the account, quite similar to the password of a bank account. Format of a Private Key: 0x6128e76b3690edfefc94c47a0542b7cd6ff9fcac956fa5b12bdc1a10dc76ab55.
To visualize, you can imagine that the Aptos wallet is a bank account, the wallet address is the account number and the passphrase is the password.
The difference here is that with a bank account, other people will know your personal information. As for the Aptos wallet, the user becomes anonymous, no one knows who owns the wallet, and transactions only occur through the address encoded into a sequence of numbers and characters.

This tutorial will guide you on how to create a new Aptos wallet on both the mobile and desktop interfaces, so you can also install both to flexibly switch use.

Step 4: Back up the Passphrase in a safe place.
Note: These are CRUCIAL information that directly affects control over your assets.
- Copy and paste the Passphrase into the confirmation box.
- Tick the Backup your recovery key box and click on the copy icon to confirm that you have saved your Passphrase/Private key. You must save the security key in a safe place and do not disclose it to anyone. Otherwise, your account is at risk of being stolen if someone knows these sequences of characters.

Some notes when using the Aptos wallet
Is it safe to store APT tokens in the Aptos wallet?
Coin98 is a non-custodial wallet, that is, full control of assets belongs to you, no one has access unless you disclose the key to others. Therefore, it is perfectly safe for your assets.
Is there a fee to transfer APT tokens?
Sending APT tokens from a Aptos Wallet will cost the blockchain platform fee in APT.
Is it possible to create multiple Aptos wallets?
Yes! You can create as many Aptos wallets as you want. Each wallet will have a different address and passphrase, so remember to save each of them. Each wallet should be named so that you can easily manage them if you create multiple Aptos wallets.
Can Aptos wallets store other coins?
Aptos wallets can store APT tokens supported by the Aptos blockchain platform. Otherwise, do not transfer any coins on other blockchain platforms to Aptos wallet if you do not want to lose your assets.
