How do I get started?

Welcome to BRD!

The BRD app connects directly to the cryptocurrency networks it supports. There are no accounts or usernames with the BRD app. Instead, you will have a "wallet" where you will store your money. It's just like the physical wallet you put your cash in, except that it exists only on the internet and holds digital money.

Follow these steps to get started:

  1. If this is your first time using the BRD app, simply choose Create New Wallet to start.
  2. Enter a PIN
  3. Confirm the PIN
  4. The app shows you 12 different words in separate pages. This is your Paper Key. Tap Write Down Paper Key and Next after writing down each word.

    IMPORTANT: Make sure that you write the Paper Key down in the correct order and keep it secure as this is the only way to restore your BRD wallet.

    For more information about the Paper Key, visit this page.

  5. The app will ask you to confirm random words from your Paper Key. Click Submit after entering the requested words.

  6. The wallets sync to the blockchain

  7. You will see a box asking you to enable Touch ID. This is optional. Tap on X if you would like to skip this step. You can enable this later via the app’s Security Center. Visit this page for more information on Touch ID.

NOTE: If you have used the BRD app before and would like to use the same wallet, choose Recover Wallet on the main page and prepare to enter the Paper Key for the wallet you would like to restore.
