Coin98 Wallet currently supports creating and restoring Evmos wallets to interact with this network. Follow our guidelines below for more details.

What does an Evmos wallet include?

An Evmos wallet has 3 crucial information you must note down:

Wallet address: A sequence of numbers and characters used to send & receive assets to the Evmos wallet. Users can transfer coins to each other through the wallet address. Example of an Evmos wallet address: evmos1pf039ws02s9m8fxwnpt39nu84ertvqmpcchqru
Passphrase: A security key, or a type of password consisting of 12 random English keywords. You must have the wallets’ Passphrases to restore them. Example of a Passphrase: frozen future chalk knee still kid permit taste elder wife current problem.
Private Key: Private Key is a string of letters and numbers, similar to a bank account's password. Example of a Private Key: ae627f4d738d85519fd4bcaa5ff0587760c5857367132c598543bcf10005875b

After creating a wallet, you will receive its wallet address, passphrase and private key similar to the examples above.

To visualize, you can imagine that the Evmos 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 Evmos wallet, users become anonymous, no one knows who owns the wallet, and transactions only occur through the address encoded into a sequence of numbers and characters.
