To start using myEtherWallet, you will need to come up with a secure password. Your password should be at least 9 characters long. After entering a password, click “create new wallet”. You will be taken to this screen where it asks to download a keystore file. A keystore file is an encrypted private key, that gives you access to your funds. Please make a backup of this file, by storing another copy of it on a USB or other storage device. If you lose this, it is very difficult to recover your coins.
After clicking “I understand” it will show you your unencrypted private key. If you prefer, you can print a paper wallet through the website. A paper wallet is a document that contains all the data necessary to access your cryptocurrency, usually containing QR Codes and your private keys.
Next, myEtherWallet will ask you how you would like to access your wallet. You will access the wallet using the newly-downloaded encrypted private key. Click “Keystore/JSON File”, and select the encrypted private key file you just downloaded. Press “unlock” and your public address will be displayed. This address is where you can send your ERC-20 Coins. ERC-20 Coins are any cryptocurrency that runs on the Ethereum blockchain. This includes coins such as 0x, OmiseGo, and Storj.
