# How to create a ShibaDEX wallet

  • The first thing you need to do is download the ShibaDEX wallet,You can find the download links at https://shibadex.io/#download (opens new window)

    The shibadex.io homepage also has a button to download the desktop app. The website will automatically recognize your device and download the correct application.

  • Find the zipped file from your downloads folder. Extract the contents, and open the older. Scroll down and open the application titled shibadex-desktop.

  • Once the application opens, click New wallet to get started.

  • Give your wallet a name. In this example, we name our wallet ShibaDEX Desktop Wallet.

  • On this same screen, you will be shown your 24-Word Mnemonic Seed. This is your backup. Please write it down and store it in a safe place. If you lose access to your backup seed, you will lose access to your funds!

    TIP

    Never show anyone your 24-word seed. Keep it in a safe place. If a malicious actor gets ahold of your seed, they will be able to move your funds. The ShibaDEX team will NEVER ask you for your 24-word backup seed.

  • Once you've written down your seed, you will need to verify that you have written it down correctly. ShibaDEX app will ask you to confirm a few of the words you've written down in the right order.

  • After you have verified that your seed is correct, you will set up a password for your wallet. This password will allow you to access your portfolio and make transactions. It keeps your funds safe if someone ever accesses your mobile device. This password will allow you to export your 24-word seed if you need to write it down again.

  • Once you have set up your password, please read and agree to the Terms of Service and ShibaDEX EULA.

  • You’ll need to enter your password again and click Connect. You’ll then see the wallet home screen.

  • Now you're done! You have created a new ShibaDEX wallet. All you need to do now is Select BEP-20 Shiba Inu (SHIB) from the options, and you'll find your SHIB address. You can use this address to receive funds.

  • Now you will be directed to the Wallet tab. Click Receive to view your SHIB BEP-20 address.

  • To receive Shiba Inu (SHIB) and other coins, you can send someone an image of your QR code or you can copy/paste your address.

    # View Seed and Private Keys

  • If you didn’t write down your seed phrase when creating your wallet, you can still view it from the ShibaDEX app.

TIP

Reminder: Never share your seed phrase with anyone since it can be used to access funds in your wallet.

  • Tap the Gear icon at the bottom-left corner of the screen.

  • Then, click Security.

  • Next to View Seed and Private Keys, click the Show button.

  • You’ll need to enter your wallet password to view your seed phrase.

  • Finally, you can view your seed phrase and find your private keys for each of your wallet’s enabled assets.

  • If you forget your password or lose access to your desktop device, you’ll need your seed phrase to restore your wallet. The process for restoring your wallet is the same as creating a new wallet. The only difference is that you tab Import Wallet on the ShibaDEX app welcome screen to get started.

# Perform Cross-Chain Swaps Using ShibaDEX

  • You can use RICK and MORTY testcoins to test swaps on AtomicDEX.

  • In our example, we’ll use the MORTY faucet to receive testcoins.

  • First, you’ll need to enable the RICK and MORTY assets in your wallet.

  • Click Add Asset. Search for MORTY and click the circle on the left-hand side. Then, click Enable.

  • Go through the same steps to enable MORTY.

  • Next, navigate to the Wallet tab. Search MORTY and select it from the menu.

  • Click the Faucet button. It’ll take 5 minutes or less for 3.33 MORTY to arrive in your wallet.

TIP

Note: For non-testcoins, you’ll need to send funds to your corresponding ShibaDEX wallet address before you’re able to trade.

  • Now, you can navigate to the DEX tab.

  • Click on the Pick a coin button and select MORTY.

  • Choose the amount of MORTY you want to sell.

  • Next, click on Pick an order and select RICK.

  • On AtomicDEX, 1 RICK is worth 1 MORTY, so we can trade them at the 1:1 ratio, minus any network transaction costs.

TIP

Note: For non-testcoins, you’ll need to make sure that the swap ratio closely matches real-time market prices. AtomicDEX has real-time price suggestion updates for slippage prevention, but it’s always good to double-check your order before placing it. You’ll need to pay any network transaction costs and the ShibaDEX platform fee of 0.13%.

  • Click Swap Now, and then Confirm to start the swap.

  • Under the Orders column, you can view ongoing trades. Select the RICK and MORTY swap. Then, click Show to view order details. Each swap has three steps: order matching, swap ongoing, and swap completed.

  • After the swap is complete, click on the Portfolio tab to view your updated balances. As you can see in our example, we now have almost 1 RICK coin and a little less than 2.33 MORTY.

# Withdraw Funds Using ShibaDEX

  • Now let’s say you would like to withdraw some MORTY from ShibaDEX.

  • All you need to do is select MORTY from the Portfolio tab.

  • Then, click Send.

  • Enter an external wallet address and select an amount. Click Prepare.

  • Finally, click Send to start the transaction.
