Create a Wallet
To get started on UNIGATE, the first thing you'll need is to set up a wallet that supports Polygon chain (Matic). Wallets are available both on desktop computers and on smartphone devices. You'll need to choose the wallet that fits your needs best.
When you're setting up a wallet, be sure to:
  1. 1.
    Download and install only the latest version from an official source.
  2. 2.
    Follow the setup guide carefully.
  3. 3.
    Safely back up your recovery phrases.
  4. 4.
    NEVER share your recovery phrases with anyone, under any circumstances.
  5. 5.
    NEVER input your recovery phrase to a website or app, other than your wallet app.
