How do I set up a Bitcoin wallet in Metal Vault?

This quick guide will help you with adding a Bitcoin wallet in Metal Vault.

The Bitcoin wallet isn't preconfigured


When you enter Metal Vault for the first time, you’ll notice that you have two preconfigured wallets: “My Ethereum wallet” and “My Metal wallet”. You’ll have to manually add the Bitcoin wallet yourself.

Step 1: Go to the create a wallet page


Click on the add wallet button (the “+” icon beside “Wallet”) on the Metal Vault dashboard. You’ll be taken to the “Create A Wallet” page within Metal Vault.

Step 2: Create the Bitcoin wallet


Input 1 asks “Which currency would you like to use?” Select “Bitcoin”.

Input 2 asks “What kind of wallet do you want to create?” Select “Multisig”.

In Input 3, enter a name for the Bitcoin wallet and confirm your password for Metal Vault. It is good practice to give it a descriptive name, to avoid uncertainty if you want to create multiple wallets in the future. Then click on the “Create Wallet” button.

The Bitcoin wallet has been successfully created


You now successfully created a Bitcoin wallet. The Bitcoin wallet is now accessible from the Metal Vault dashboard.
