Setting up a wallet on Zerion
Zerion has partnered with Magic to help new users set up an Ethereum wallet for the first time.
Zerion is non-custodial, which means even if you create an Ethereum wallet through our app, we do not own your private keys and cannot access your funds. Magic also does not own your private keys and cannot access your funds. To read more about wallet security, check out this article.
Step 1: Open Zerion on web or mobile
Step 2: Select the option to create a new wallet
Step 3: Enter your email address or other login credentials (Google, Apple ID, Facebook)
Step 4: Open your inbox and click on the magic link to verify your details
Step 5: Return to Zerion, and you should see your new connected wallet.
