Setting up your Cosmos Wallet involves a series of steps to ensure both the security of your funds and ease of access to your cryptocurrencies. Here’s a detailed guide on how to set up your Leap Wallet:

1. Download the Leap Wallet App

  • For Mobile Users: Go to the App Store (for iOS) or Google Play Store (for Android).
  • Search for “Leap Wallet” and make sure it’s the official application.
  • Download and Install the app on your mobile device.

2. Create a New Wallet

  • Open the Leap Wallet app on your device.
  • Choose the option to create a new wallet. This is usually presented as “Create Wallet” or “New Wallet”.

3. Set a Strong Password

  • Create a strong password for your wallet. This password will be used to access the wallet app on your device.
  • Note: Choose a password that is difficult to guess, combining letters (both uppercase and lowercase), numbers, and symbols.

4. Backup Your Recovery Phrase

  • Upon creating a new wallet, you will be provided with a 12-word recovery phrase. This phrase is crucial for the recovery of your wallet in case you forget your password or lose access to your device.
  • Write down the phrase on paper and store it in a secure and private location. Do not store it digitally to avoid potential online thefts. Do Not Take A Screenshot Of It!!!!
  • Confirm the recovery phrase by entering it in the order provided during the setup.

5. Verify Your Wallet

  • Once the recovery phrase is set, verify your wallet. This may involve confirming your email address or phone number, depending on the wallet’s requirements.

6. Secure Your Wallet

  • Consider enabling additional security features such as biometric authentication (fingerprint or face ID), if available.
  • Set up two-factor authentication (2FA), if offered by the wallet. This adds an extra layer of security to your wallet.

7. Add Cryptocurrency to Your Wallet

  • You can transfer existing cryptocurrency to your new Leap Wallet from another wallet or exchange. Use the ‘Receive’ option in the wallet to generate an address for the specific cryptocurrency you want to transfer.
  • If you don’t have any cryptocurrency yet, you may be able to buy directly through the wallet app using a credit card or bank transfer, if this service is offered.

8. Start Using Your Wallet

  • Once your wallet is funded, you can send, receive, and manage your cryptocurrencies.
  • To send crypto, use the ‘Send’ option, enter the recipient’s address, amount, and confirm the transaction.
  • To receive crypto, use the ‘Receive’ option, select the cryptocurrency, and share your wallet address with the sender.

9. Explore Additional Features

  • Check for staking options, if available, to earn rewards on your holdings.
  • Explore any integrated decentralized applications (dApps) for additional services like swapping tokens or participating in DeFi protocols.

10. Keep Your Wallet Updated

  • Regularly update the wallet app to the latest version to ensure you have the latest security enhancements and features.

11. Security and Maintenance

  • Regularly review your wallet’s security settings.
  • Avoid sharing sensitive information like your recovery phrase or password with anyone.
  • Be wary of phishing attempts: Always verify links and emails if they claim to be from Leap Wallet.

Important Tips:

  • Security First: Always prioritize the security of your wallet. Use strong passwords and enable two-factor authentication (2FA) if available.
  • Beware of Phishing: Be cautious of phishing attempts. Never enter your recovery phrase or password on suspicious websites.
  • Regular Backups: Regularly backup your wallet and store your recovery phrase in a safe, secure location.


Your Leap Wallet is now set up and ready for use. Remember, the security of your wallet largely depends on how safely you store your recovery phrase and how strong your password is. Regularly monitoring and updating your wallet’s security settings is crucial in safeguarding your digital assets.
