In this tutorial you will learn to create your first Burst account, to validate it and to understand its interface.

When opening your Core wallet or All-in-One client, you should see this :

The first step will be to create a new account. Click on the text “Don’t have an account? Click here to create one!”. You can either use the automatically generated passphrase or choose your own by clicking “Want to choose your own passphrase ? Click here.”

  • MAKE SURE TO PICK AN EXTREMELY SECURE PASSPHRASE! Using the generated 12 words passphrase is recommended. You can add words of your choice or special characters for increased security.
  • MAKE SURE TO BACK UP YOUR PASSPHRASE MULTIPLE TIMES, INCLUDING ON PAPER! LOST PASSPHRASES CAN NOT BE RECOVERED AND WILL RESULT IN THE LOSS OF THE ACCOUNT!

Validate your account’s passphrase.

You are now in front of the Burst wallet interface.

Here are highlighted what you should note as important attributes of the Burst wallet interface.

  • Top Left: your wallet’s name
  • Top Right: Send Burst / Message
  • Along the Left: advanced Burst wallet functionality
  • Center: Your recent transactions (this should be empty at this point)
  • Bottom Right: The 10 most recent blocks on the blockchain.

Now we can get started with some fun stuff like funding your Burst wallet and naming your Burst wallet. All new accounts have to be validated with both an entering and an outgoing transaction, so make sure to follow the next steps :

There are a couple of ways to get started. For your information all Burst transaction have a fee of at least 1 Burst so you will be needing a few burstcoins to begin with.

-> You can either acquire some burstcoins from a friend or an exchange, or check out a faucet for a free, small amount of burstcoins (check http://burstfaucets.com)

Now that your wallet is funded let’s finish this tutorial by making our first outgoing transaction to activate the account : naming our brand new Burst wallet.

Click text in the top right of the wallet that reads “NO NAME SET” and you will see the wallet’s window pop up allowing you to name and describe your Burst wallet.

Use only alpha numeric letters A-Z, numbers 0-9 and punctuation like ! < . > and + to name your new Burst wallet.

After a confirmation your wallet will be recieved by others by the title you’ve named your Burst wallet !

Sending burstcoins to others is fairly self explanatory just remember to keep your Burst wallet passphrase handy but very SECURE as well.

Happy Bursting!
