Bonus: What is a Wallet?
2. Ben helps you create a wallet
Before you can buy your first bitcoin, Ben will help you set up your wallet. You’re the only person who has access to your wallet. You’ll be asked to write down a 12-word backup phrase when you create a wallet. This will allow you to restore access to your wallet in case you lose your phone or delete Ben from your device.
3. How can I store Bitcoin?
Bitcoins are stored on the Bitcoin Blockchain. Wallets allow you to store, send and receive bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. You can deposit Bitcoin into your wallet by sending funds to your public wallet address.
4. How can I send Bitcoin to others?
Once you buy Bitcoin from Ben or deposit it directly into your wallet, you can send Bitcoin to another wallet. You can send Bitcoin to your phone contacts, scan someone's wallet's QR code, or enter a wallet's public address manually.
