Ways to Connect to Instadapp - Guide

InstaDapp offers users multiple ways to access their assets and connect their wallets; whether it’s through a hardware wallet, a desktop web3 wallet or from your mobile phone.

Wallets are a really important part of the DeFi ecosystem, they create a very adaptable mechanism for users to get on board with DeFi and well, justify DeFi’s motto “be your own back”.

Here’s a quick guide to get you through that hurdle!

Metamask and Hardware Wallet

  1. Download the Metamask extension. Remember, you need to be on a Desktop with a browser which supports extensions (like Chrome or Brave). Here’s a simple video to help you set up your Metamask account if you haven’t already.
  2. To connect your web3 desktop Metamask wallet, click on the Metamask box when prompted.
  3. Give access to Instadapp to connect to your address (we have no access to your funds at any point of time whatsoever).

  1. Deposit your funds and get started.

Note: We are in no way responsible if you lose your private keys in any way. So, store them safely, under your bed.

Hardware Wallets

What’s great about hardware wallets is versatility. If you’re stuck somewhere with access to your laptop or mobile phone, you can connect to your account through your hardware wallet.

Hardware wallets are connected via Metamask on any browser that supports the Metamask extension.

Connect your hardware wallet (Ledger or Trezor), and then you’ll be able to access your account on Instadapp.

Here’s a quick guide on how to set up your hardware wallet on Metamask.

Remember: Please cross-check for legit wallets, and don’t enter your private keys in anything that looks scammy.

WalletConnect

WalletConnect is an open protocol that allows Dapps like Instadapp to mobile wallets like Trust, Rainbow, Argent etc. by simply scanning a QR code.

What’s great about WalletConnect is that you can connect and interact with Instadapp without having to enter your private keys again and again. More so, you’ll be notified every time a transaction is signed from your account.

  1. Open your choice of wallet from your phone. Here’s a list of apps supported by WalletConnect.
  2. To connect to your web3 wallet, click on WalletConnect when prompted.
  3. Scan the QR code displayed on your browser via your web3 mobile wallet.

Once scanned successfully, you’ll be able to access your assets, interact with the dapp and sign transactions right from your phone.

Remember: Always make sure you’re interacting with legit apps. Cross-check thrice.

If you’re facing any issue with your wallet, make sure you have updated to the latest version of the app. In case you’re still stuck, please feel free to reach us out on Discord.

Coinbase Wallet

Coinbase Wallet is a standalone wallet that allows users to store, or custody, their own crypto, and explore the decentralized web with a dapp browser. Coinbase Wallet helps users manage their own private keys and store their crypto assets directly on their devices, not with a centralized brokerage or exchange.

  1. Download and set up your Coinbase Wallet (Android or iOS).
  2. To connect to your web3 wallet, click on Coinbase Wallet when prompted.
  3. Scan the QR code displayed on your browser via your Coinbase Wallet powered by WalletLink on your phone.

Once scanned successfully, you’ll be able to access your assets, interact with the dapp and sign transactions right from your phone.

Remember: Always make sure you’re interacting with legit apps. Cross-check thrice.

  2. Follow the instructions given to connect.

Once you’ve connected via Fortmatic, you’ll be able to access your assets and interact with Instadapp.
