Get started with DeFi Lab
New technology can seem daunting at first, even for modern power users. To make your onboarding to DeFi Lab as hassle-free as possible, we've created some guides and manuals.

Creating crypto wallet

First thing's first, let's hook you up with a crypto wallet.
LocalTrade DeFi Lab operates on Binance Smart Chain (BEP-20 network), thus you'll need a BEP20-compatible cryptocurrency wallet, either mobile or desktop.
We recommend using DeFi Wallet from LocalTrade to ensure a smooth and seamless Web3 experience. Alternatively, you can try Metamask – one of the most popular crypto wallets.
Make sure to memorize your recovery phrase and private keys: save them in a password manager, write them down and store them in your vault or safe box. Make sure that no one except you knows this information. If you lose these keys, it will be impossible to access and restore your funds.
LocalTrade DeFi Wallet
Metamask
DeFi Wallet from LocalTrade is a popular open-source crypto wallet for mobile devices that supports multiple networks, DApps, staking, etc. LocalTrade DeFi Wallet is the best for beginners and enthusiasts, as it includes WalletConnect and Binance Smart Chain support by default.
Metamask is the world's most popular Ethereum wallet. It features both mobile apps and a web-based browser plugin for desktop users. Setting up BSC in Metamask can take a little longer than expected, but overall convenience is totally worth it.
