Video Guide

Here is the video guide to create a Keystore wallet on El Dorado. If you prefer a written guide, please continue scrolling.

Text Guide

  1. Visit El Dorado Website and press the "Enter El Dorado" or "Launch App" button.

  1. On the top right corner press the "Connect Wallet" button to connect your wallet.

  1. A pop-up will appear. Choose "Create new wallet".

  2. Create a password to encrypt your Keystore. Make sure it's a safe password that you can REMEMBER.

  1. Once you press create you'll be prompted to save your Keystore file on your computer. Choose a safe location and save.6- You'll be presented with a 12-words seed phrase. Make sure to write it down or save it somewhere safe.

If you lose your keystore or forget your password, the only way to recover your wallet is using the seed phrase. If you lose that too no one will be able to help you, and your funds may be lost forever. Do not ever share your seed phrase with anyone.

  1. Congratulations! Your wallet has been created and you can now interact with El Dorado and all Maya Protocol's Front Ends using your Keystore.

Add Funds to the Wallet

  1. Connect your wallet by clicking "Connect Wallet".

  1. Select the wallet and chains you wish to connect with, then click "Connect".

Keystore does not support Polkadot ($DOT) at this moment. You can utilize Talisman wallet for storing $DOT.

  1. On the top right press "View Wallet". A list of supported tokens should appear.

  2. From list, find the token you'd like to add, and copy the address by clicking the double squares icon. In this example we will deposit $KUJI.

  1. In your wallet or Centralized exchange of choice that has crypto initiate a withdrawal to the address that you previously copied to transfer the crypto to your keystore wallet.

  2. Once transaction has been confirmed head back to El Dorado and press refresh.

  3. Your balance should be updated and now you can swap and provide liquidity with your assets.

Some chains like Bitcoin or Ethereum can take a relatively long time for the transaction to confirm and receive crypto into your wallets.

Perform Your First Swap

  1. From the top Menu press "Swap".

  2. In the swap page, choose the Layer 1 assets you would like to swap to and from.

We have integrated Maya Protocol and Chainflip as backends to support our platforms functionality. Depending upon which Layer 1 assets you are swapping to and from, there could be multiple paths to make your swap. By default, the most optimal route will be chosen, but feel free to choose whatever route you would like to use.

  1. Enter the amount in the top field.

El Dorado now supports Custom Recipient addresses. By default, the wallet that is connected will receive the desired crypto asset. If you would like to send the received asset to another address, simply click the existing address then enter the custom recipient address.

  1. Press "Swap".

  2. A new tab will open showing the blockchain explorer to follow the status of your transaction.

  3. Once transaction is confirmed, go back to El Dorado, press "View Wallet" on the top right, refresh wallet, and you should see your updated balance.
