Concordex Wallet Guide — Connecting With Concordium Wallet and CryptoX
At Concordex, we are building the most secure and feature-rich DEX on the Concordium blockchain. We are on course to launch our testnet on May 25. Now, before you interact with the testnet, the first thing you will need to do is to get a compatible wallet. In this guide, we will be looking into two wallets:
- Concordium extension wallet : A browser wallet
- CryptoX : Mobile wallet currently for Android only. iOS version to come soon.
Concordium Browser Wallet — Step-by-Step Installation Guide
Let’s set up your Concordium wallet. First, go here and add the wallet extension to Chrome .
Pin the wallet extension to your browser.
You will get a popup message from the Concordium wallet to kickstart the installation process.
When you agree to the terms and conditions and click “Continue,” you will get the following message. You will be prompted to create a passcode.
After you enter your passcode, you will have the option of either creating a brand-new wallet or restoring an existing one. Let’s create a new wallet.
Now, you will be given your 24-word recovery phrase. Copy the phrase and paste it somewhere at hand. You will be immediately prompted to type down the words in the exact same order.
After entering your secure recovery phrase, you will be prompted to choose a network. For now, choose the testnet since you will interact with the Concordex testnet.
Now, you will be prompted to request an ID card from one of Concordium’s ID providers. This is something very unique to Concordium since it’s the only blockchain with a built-in identity layer.
When you request an identity, you will be asked to choose between the following identity providers. In this case, we chose “Concordium testnet IP.”
Now, your chosen identity provider will process your request for identity. Once ready, you will see the identity verification certificate.
Once you submit the certificate, you are good to go. You can now use this identity to create an account.
Once you click on “Done,” you will be automatically prompted to create an account.
Your Concordium account will be linked to the identity you just created. You can create multiple accounts based on your identity.
That’s it! Once your account has been created, your wallet is good to go. This is what the user interface looks like:
So, what say we get some testnet CCD tokens? Since this is a testnet wallet, we can get some test CCD to experiment with in the various protocols. To do that, click the button shown in the screenshot below.
When you do that, you will get the option to request 2000 test CCD.
Click the button and your account will be credited with 2000 CCD.
CryptoX Mobile Wallet — Step-by-Step Installation Guide
If you are comfortable using a mobile wallet, consider CryptoX. Do note that CryptoX currently only supports Android. They will release an iOS version soon.
A quick detour
Now, before you install the CryptoX wallet, you need to allow your phone to install unknown apps. This what you need to do:
Goto your Settings and search for “Install unknown apps.”
Following that, tap “Install unknown apps” again. Following that, you must choose the source from which you will install the app. This is usually a browser like Chrome.
Now you can go and install the apk from here .
Setting up the wallet
Now, before you install the CryptoX wallet, you need to allow your phone to install unknown apps. This is what you need to do:
You will be prompted to create a passcode.
You will also be asked to enable biometrics for additional security.
CryptoX will ask you to create a new wallet or import an existing one. In this case, we will be making a new wallet.
When you create a new wallet, you will be asked to customize it by creating account and identity names.
Now that you have created an account, you will be asked to verify your identity within the Concordium network. So, choose an identity provider. In this case, we will be choosing “Concordium testnet IP” again.
Now, you will be taken over to your chosen identity provider’s identity issuance flow. You may customize your identity attributes if you wish. However, since this is just the testnet, you can go with the default values.
Once your identity gets processed, your account is ready and good to go!
Again, if you need some test CCD tokens, you can tap on your account balance and request 2000 test CCD tokens.
Connecting with Concordex
#1 Connecting with Concordium Browser Wallet
Connecting with your Concordium browser wallet is relatively straightforward.
Click on “Concordium Wallet,” and you will get a pop-up in your browser extension.
Click on “Connect,” and you are good to go!
#2 Connecting with CryptoX
To connect with your CryptoX wallet, click on “WalletConnect.”
Once you do that, you will be show a QR code.
To scan this QR code, open CryptoX and tap on the scanner.
When you scan the QR code, you’ll be given the option to select the CryptoX account you wish to use when engaging with Concordex.
After choosing the account, CryptoX will ask your permission to allow the session.
Once you have successfully connected your wallet, you will get this message:
Congrats! You are now good to go.
Using The Faucet: Getting Some Test Tokens
So far, we have shown you how to get test CCD tokens. However, you can get a variety of different test tokens by accessing the Concordex faucet.
Click the faucet and select the test token you want. Let’s say we want USDT.eth.
When you select USDT, you will get the following “Signature Request” in your wallet.
Sign the transaction, and you will be credited with the test tokens.
A Few Things To Keep In Mind
Concordium Browser Wallet Redirecting
If you try to access Concordex via the Concordium browser wallet without pre-installing it, you will be redirected to the installation link. After installing the wallet, you must reload the Concordex window to connect the wallet.
Manually Approving Transactions
When using the CryptoX wallet, you must manually approve all swap transactions within the wallet. For example, let’s say you did a swap operation. You will need to manually go to your CryptoX, where you will see something like this:
After signing the transaction, you must wait around 10 seconds for the whole thing to go through. (NOTE: 10 seconds is the time to finality in the Concordium blockchain).
I don’t see my tokens. What do I do?
Initially, you may not see the tokens you have purchased from Concordex. Don’t panic. You didn’t lose your tokens.
You will simply need to manually import your tokens into your wallet. This is what you need to do. Every single token available in Concordex has a corresponding 4-digit number called “index.”
You will need to input this index number into your wallet to see the balance.
Click on “Manage.”
Enter the contract index manually. Let’s say we want to see the USDC balance. In that case, we will enter “4516.”
Now, select USDC to add it to your wallet.
Now, you should be able to see your token balances.
The process is pretty similar. Manually contract index as we have done in the screenshot below.
Following that, we manually added the corresponding token, which is USDC, in this case.
We apologize for the inconvenience caused by this less-than-ideal scenario. Please rest assured that we are diligently working towards improving the user experience to make it as seamless as possible.
Stay tuned for continuous testnet updates!
