How to create Ether wallet using Mist


Mist is an electron application, means it's a desktop hybrid application with a web interface. Mist is also a digital wallet: you can store digital currencies in it.


Note: Keep in mind that OFC are visible on ERC20 supporting Ethereum wallets, so we recommend using MyEtherWallet, Mist or Metamask.



Step 1. Visit Mist Wallet download page: https://github.com/ethereum/mist/releases. Choose and download the latest release for the system you are using.


Step 2. After you unzip the folder, look for Ethereum-Wallet application and launch it. On loaded window choose ‘USE THE MAIN NETWORK’ option.


Step 3. Enter a strong password. IMPORTANT: create a password that you will not forget — it will be impossible to restore it!

 


Step 4. Your wallet is created and you can see your wallet address on main wallet`s screen. 

After you have set up a wallet, in order to buy ETH on exchanges and markets you just need to specify your wallet number and make a purchase. The purchased amount of Ether will be transferred to your wallet.
