Anyone with a working internet connection can access Zerion from anywhere in the world for free at app.zerion.io. Below, we’ll take you through the steps of setting up your DeFi portfolio from scratch:
Setting up a Web3 Account
Zerion does not have user accounts – instead we connect to Web3 wallets that link your browser or smartphone directly to the Ethereum network. You can download and install any of these wallets:
You can buy ETH at any crypto exchange, including Coinbase, Binance, Kraken, Bitfinex, OkEx, Huobi, and more. Once you’ve deposited ETH, you’ll need to send it to the public address linked to your Web3 account.
Sending ETH to your Web3 Account
You will need to copy the public address of your Web3 account. It should look something like this:
From your exchange account, select the option to “Send ETH”, input the amount you would like to send, and paste your public address. Be sure to double check that you have pasted the correct address, as there is no way to retrieve funds sent to an incorrect address.
Open your Web3 account and you should see the freshly deposited ETH!
Linking your Web3 account to Zerion
Go to app.zerion.io and select how you would like to sign up based on the Web3 account you’re using.
Manage your DeFi portfolio using Zerion
If you haven’t already deposited ETH into your Web3 account as described above, you can do so directly through Zerion by clicking “Deposit”. This will give you the option to choose the asset you wish to deposit as well as the method.
Assuming you wish to deposit ETH, you can send ETH directly from another Web3 account or from your crypto exchange, or buy ETH using your credit card or a transfer from a European bank account.
Once you have successfully deposited funds into your account, it’s time to put your crypto to work!
