How to Create an Eternl Wallet

A step-by-step guide for how to create a Cardano wallet using the Eternl wallet.

A few weeks ago a community member in our Discord asked us to create an idiot-proof guide for the for setting up an Eternl Wallet. We did so and then decide it would be a good idea to share it for everyone to use. So here you go!

The following guide walks you through the steps of creating an Eternl wallet where you can store your ADA, Cardano Native Tokens, and NFTs, stake your ADA to earn rewards, and voting in Project Catalyst.


Eternl is a non-custodial wallet. This means that they do not keep a copy of your password or your recovery seed. No one besides you, or anyone you give your password or recovery seed to, will have a copy of these. This means that only you can recover your wallet. If you lose your password and/or your recovery seed then your wallet and funds will be irrecoverable. AFTER COMPLETING THESE STEPS YOU WILL BE WHOLLY, 100% RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR FUNDS. YOU ASSUME ALL THE RISKS.
