Step1. Create a crypto wallet
To get started to use the Samecoin Protocol, the first thing you'll need is to create a wallet that supports Binance Smart Chain (BSC) or Hoo Smart Chain (HSC). Wallets are available for desktop computers and smartphone devices. You'll need to choose the wallet that best fits your needs.
PS: Only MetaMask wallet is currently supported. More wallets will be added in the future.
When you're creating a wallet, be sure to:
  • Download and install only the latest version from an official source.
  • Follow the setup guide carefully.
  • Safely back up your recovery phrases.
  • NEVER share your recovery phrases with anyone, under any circumstances.
  • NEVER input your recovery phrase to a website or app, other than your wallet app.


MetaMask is a popular browser-based wallet plugin that supports ERC20 (Ethereum network) and BEP20 & ORC20 (Binance Smart Chain & Hoo Smart Chain networks). ​
Pros: - Open source for auditability - WEB3 capable on BscScan/HscScan - Strong history of security and reliability - large amount of tutorials and resources online - Many tools and custom settings - Offers ETH purchases with Transak - Available in a large number of languages - Also available as a browser plugin for desktop web browsers
Cons: - Longer setup time than other options - Additional steps needed to use with Binance Smart Chain & Hoo Smart Chain - Extra information and settings may confuse beginners
NEVER, in any situation, give someone your private key or recovery phrase ("seed phrase"). This will give someone complete access to your crypto! Samecoin Protocol and staff will never ask you for your private key or seed phrase.

Getting private key from mobile to import to desktop

Token Pocket lets you use both a desktop and mobile wallet. This section will cover how to get your private key from your mobile wallet to import into your desktop wallet.
