Base: How to Create and Manage Base Wallets


Managing digital assets on the Base platform starts with creating and managing a Base wallet. This guide will walk you through the steps to set up and maintain your Base wallet effectively.

Creating a Base Wallet

  1. Download the Base Wallet App Begin by downloading the official Base Wallet app from the App Store or Google Play Store. Ensure that you are downloading from the official source to avoid malicious software.
  2. Install and Open the App Install the app on your device and open it. You will be greeted with a welcome screen that guides you through the initial setup process.
  3. Create a New Wallet Select the option to create a new wallet. You will be prompted to set a strong password. Make sure to choose a unique and complex password that you do not use for other services.
  4. Backup Your Seed Phrase The app will generate a seed phrase (a series of words) that acts as a recovery key for your wallet. Write down this seed phrase and store it in a secure location. Do not share it with anyone, as it can be used to access your wallet.
  5. Confirm the Seed Phrase To ensure that you have correctly recorded your seed phrase, the app will ask you to confirm it by selecting the words in the correct order.
  6. Complete Setup Once you have confirmed your seed phrase, your wallet will be created, and you will have access to its features.

Managing Your Base Wallet

  1. Add Funds To add funds to your Base wallet, navigate to the ‘Receive’ section. Here, you will find your wallet address, which you can use to receive Base tokens or other supported cryptocurrencies.
  2. Send Funds To send funds, go to the ‘Send’ section and enter the recipient’s wallet address, the amount you wish to send, and any additional details required. Confirm the transaction to complete the process.
  3. Track Transactions The wallet app provides a transaction history feature where you can track all incoming and outgoing transactions. This helps you keep a record of your financial activities.
  4. Secure Your Wallet Enable multi-factor authentication (MFA) and set up biometric security features (if available) on your device to enhance the security of your wallet.
  5. Update Regularly Keep your Base Wallet app updated to ensure you have the latest security features and improvements. Regular updates help protect against vulnerabilities.


Creating and managing a Base wallet is a straightforward process that involves setting up, securing, and maintaining your digital assets. By following the steps outlined above, you can ensure that your funds are safely stored and easily accessible on the Base platform.
