Subspace Wallets

Subspace Network has a bit of a unique relationship to wallets. This is because we are a Substrate based protocol, meaning most Substrate wallets should work with Subspace. With that being said, we will only cover official solutions in this guide.

This is the wallet we currently recommend. This is because it is the barebones Substrate wallet that supports all Substrate based networks. This is an extension that works similarly to Metamask, or most other browser based wallets you’ve likely used in the past.

Setup

  1. Go to the above link and add to your default browser. (Note: Chrome option will work on all Chromium based browsers such as Brave, Vivaldi, & Edge)

  2. Once extension is installed, Open it and click +, & Create new account

  3. The extension will then show you your 12-work mnemonic seed, MAKE SURE YOU STORE THIS SECURELY, AND NEVER SHARE IT

  4. Once you seed is securely stored and saved, click the “I have saved my mnemonic seed safely” check box and click “Next Step”

  5. The next step will ask for a Name & Password for the wallet. then click “Add the account with the generated seed”

  6. Congratulations you have created a polkadot.js wallet!

Importing an Existing Seed

Some users may be provided an existing mnemonic seed phrase that may have been provided by Subspace-Desktop, if this is the case you will want to follow this portion of the guide.

  1. Go to the above link and add to your default browser. (Note: Chrome option will work on all Chromium based browsers such as Brave, Vivaldi, & Edge)

  2. Once extension is installed, Open it and click +, & Import account from pre-existing seed

  3. Type or Paste in your 12-Word mnemonic seed phrase & click “Next”

  4. The next step will ask for a Name & Password for the wallet. then click “Add the account with the supplied seed”

Bonus

  • You can see your default substrate public address right below your Wallet name inside the extension
  • You can see your Subspace Testnet public address via the ... menu and setting the “Allow Use on Any Chain” dropdown to “Subspace Testnet”, once you exit you will see the public address now starts with st
  • You can backup/export your wallet via the ... menu in the extension

If you do not wish to add an extension to your browser you can also manually generate a wallet within the Subspace Explorer, this route is not preferred and is suggested to used a paper wallet if you follow this method.

But actually there is no anything like “Subspace testnet” in the dropdown menu. So, are wallets starting with “5” suitable for receiving Gemini-1 testnet rewards?
