The wallet browser extension

You might have tried the wallet browser extension while working on the Public Test Environment (PTE), which was a central server running a simulated ledger. Now that the PTE has been closed down and Alphanet is up and running you will have to download and install the new wallet extension.

It is important to note that this Alphanet wallet has nothing to do with the DeFi wallet currently under development that is going to be released for Babylon. This extension is temporary and utilitarian, designed for only simple workflows. If you were used to the previous browser wallet version, you might now notice some nice new features that we are going to let you explore (like being able to remove all past transactions in a single click)!

How to install

The extension is designed for chromium based browsers (Google Chrome, Edge, Opera, Brave, etc…) so you should start by installing one of these browsers before continuing. After that, you can do the following steps:

  1. Download the latest zipped extension here

  2. Unzip it

  3. Head over to the extension section of your browser

  4. Click on “load unpacked”

  5. Select the folder that you just extracted

  6. You should now see the Radix icon when looking at the extension tab on your browser.

  7. You can click on it and then click on the “create” button to create your first account!

Now that you are done setting up your wallet, head over to the next page to learn about the JavaScript SDK to get started building awesome frontends!
