Get Started with Crypto: Nano (XNO)
2 minutes | No sign-up required
Next: Exchange Nano to Bitcoin or Other Currency
Cryptocurrency may sound hard and intimidating at first. But with Nano, you can try cryptocurrency easily for free!
Step 1: Create a Wallet
A wallet is a digital storage space where you can securely hold, send, and receive cryptocurrencies like Nano. Think of it as your personal bank account for digital currencies.
Download a Nano wallet from the links below and follow these steps:
- Click "New Wallet".
- You'll be asked if you want to require a password to open Natrium. You generally don't need one as you'll be setting up your PIN code or FaceID later, so click "No, Skip".
- Click "Got It!".
- You'll see a screen with your secret backup phrases. These phrases act as a security key to recover your wallet if you ever lose access to it or your device. It's crucial to keep these phrases secret and stored in a safe place to protect your Nano funds. You can back them up right now or come back to it later. Click "I've Backed It Up".
- Confirm by clicking "YES".
- Set a 6-digit PIN to access the app.
- Allow notifications for convenience.
Congratulations! You now have your Nano wallet installed.
Step 2: Find Your Nano Address
Now that you have your wallet set up, it's time to find your Nano address. An address is like an email address or a bank account number, but for cryptocurrency transactions. You'll use this address to receive Nano.
- Click "Receive" at the bottom left of the screen.
- A 65-letter string (starting with nano_...) will appear, which is your unique Nano address. Click "Copy Address" to copy your Nano address.
Step 3: Receive Free Nano
With your Nano wallet installed and your address copied, you're ready to receive some free Nano! Come back here and paste your Nano address below.
Once you click "Send", we'll send you small amount of Nano for free. Unlike Bitcoin or Ethereum, there's no transaction fee for Nano. We'll send you 0.00001 Nano, and you'll receive exactly 0.00001 Nano.
