Create a Wallet

When creating a new wallet, a 24 word mnemonic phrase is generated for you. This is the most important secret you MUST save and SECURE in order to access all of your funds.

Security Notice

  • Zen Protocol does not offer support to recover or reset private keys as the 24 words mnemonic phrase. We always suggest writing down private keys and passwords on physical paper/notebooks for safekeeping.

  • If you lose the 24 words mnemonic phrase there is no way to recover it.

  • Keeping, sharing, or even entering your mnemonic phrase on any digital platform can put your funds at risk if the device you are using is not secured.

  • The Zen Protocol developers have not yet released official hardware wallet integration — If you decide to use your own solution, do so with caution.
