Before creating your Bancor account and wallet there are few things to keep in mind.
- The wallet you create will not require login after your initial creation
- You will require a password to make transactions and transfers
- You are required to save your 12-word recovery phrase
- Note the only way to recover a lost password is by using your 12-word recovery phrase.
- Bancor does not store private information such as passwords or recovery phrases.
You will need to log in to Messenger before connecting to your account on Bancor.

You are now logged in and have successfully created your Bancor account.
Now let's create your Bancor Wallet, go to the profile icon on the top right of the page and choose “Create Wallet”
Here you can create a new wallet or import an existing wallet.
You are unable to import an existing wallet past this stage, once you create a new wallet this will become your only available wallet.)
If you choose to create a new wallet, enter a password and submit.
- Make sure you save your password in a safe place as you will not have a way to recover it later.
Make sure you also save your 12-word backup recovery phrase, just in case you happen to forget your password.
- You will need to enter your words in the correct order in order for it to work so make sure you save it in the right order!
- You have the option to print it out or write it down, either one will do as long as you do not lose it.
You will be asked to confirm your 12 words before continuing, just to be on the safe side, again this must be in the correct order.
Congrats! You created your wallet successfully!
