Create a wallet

To get started on Winery Swap, the first thing you'll need is to set up a wallet that supports BNB Smart Chain (BSC). Wallets are available both on desktop computers and on smartphone devices.
​
The first step to enjoying our services is to own a digital wallet that supports Binance Smart Chain and you can easily do so by downloading the latest wallet extension and installing it on your web browsers. You'll need to choose the wallet that fits your needs best.
When you're setting up a wallet, be sure to:
  • ✅ Download and install only the latest version from an official source.
  • ✅ Follow the setup guide carefully.
  • ✅ Safely back up your recovery phrases.
  • ❌ NEVER share your recovery phrases with anyone, under any circumstances.
  • ❌ NEVER input your recovery phrase to a website or app, other than your wallet app.
