What is Polkadot Wallet? Where to create a Polkadot Wallet? In today's article, Coin98 will show you the details on how to create a Polkadot Wallet.

Polkadot is a layer 0 platform that connects layer 1 platforms together. Polkadot allows blockchains to connect with each other to share data and form a decentralized network.

To be able to skin in this blockchain, of course, you will need a Polkadot Wallet. In today's article, I will show you the details on how to create a Polkadot Wallet.

What is Polkadot Wallet?

The Polkadot wallet is where DOT tokens are stored on the Polkadot blockchain. You can send and receive DOT tokens as well as interact with applications on the Polkadot 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 a Polkadot Wallet address?

A Polkadot Wallet has 2 extremely important pieces of information you must note:

  • Wallet address: A sequence of numbers and characters used to send assets to the Polkadot wallet. Others can transfer coins to you through the wallet address you provide. A Polkadot (DOT) wallet address will have the following format: 16FuasKqTX5WLaLsWCnrXC4i3KWm717k2bBHJgK3fw4ZY5qn.
  • 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: entire annual slow album wisdom snow slice reject pony flower middle under.

To visualize, you can imagine that the Polkadot 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 Polkadot 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.
