How to Setup Nano Wallet Online
This article will guide you through individual steps on how to create an online wallet using Nanowallet.io website. We recommend this as the minimum security measure for storing your Nano after purchasing from an exchange. The guide will present you images of each step and also guide you on safety best-practices, such as creating locked PDF’s.
Next, click on the “Sign Up” button on the top right-hand side to be redirected to the sign up form. Here enter your email and secure password, then hit the sign up button.
You will be notified that the wallet registration was successful. Now before you click “Go to Your Wallet” copy the Identifier and Seed one by one and paste them into a google docs or word document. (keep your nanowallet.io tab open)
Secure Nano Seed
Create a new Word/Google document and paste both the identifier and seed into the document.
Next, download or save the document as PDF document, and make sure you delete the word/google docs after you have saved it as PDF and empty your trash.
Now open the PDF document using standard adobe acrobat reader and navigate to the file->properties->security tab as seen in below image. From the security method dropdown menu select the “Password Security” option.
Next, tick the “require a password to open document” box and enter a secure password. Now click Ok and save the document.
You will see that once you try opening the PDF it now requires a password. Keeping the file name to something general will further draw less attention to it (e.g. “groceries”). You can copy the document to your google/dropbox drive as backup.
Now that we’ve sorted your seed and identifier you can go back to your nanowallet tab and click on “Go to Your Wallet” to be redirected to your Nano wallet home. Moving to the right-hand side you will see your account. You may create as many wallets as you need or rename them (e.g. “Nano Wallet”, “Business Account” etc.).
Next click the “receive” button on the top left-hand side to reveal the receiving address. This will be the exact same address as the account number, only that it allows you to copy the account address conveniently. Here copy your wallet address (red address under QR code).
Next login to the exchange that you have purchased your Nano’s at, in this case we used Binance exchange. Then navigate to the “Withdrawals” page found under the “funds” menu.
Select Nano from the currency list to filter Nano and click on the currency to reveal its withdrawal information.
Enter your Nano wallet receive address into the “Nano withdrawal address” box and specify the amount you would like to send, then click “submit”.
Depending on your exchanges security measures, you will need to confirm your withdrawal request (e.g. email, 2fa or phone/sim verification). Once you verified the withdraw request you will receive a success notification.
Now go back to your Nano wallet to see how awesome, fast and free nano transactions are! (except for exchange withdrawal fees)
Finally you can now send feeless and instant transactions to anyone with a nano wallet! Simply click on the “Send” tab on the top left and input the receiver’s nano address. Enter the amount and click on “Send”.
Nano Storage Options
Eventually if you decide to hold a portion of your nano as investment we recommend cold storing your Nano. This process may be challenging if you are not tech savvy but if you have enough patience and time at hand we present a step-by-step guide here. Optionally you can store your Nano in Nano’s official wallet for desktop/mobile or Canoe’s wallet. Follow below guides for more info:
