How To Create A Multi-Currency Crypto Wallet (For Beginners)

Learn How To Securely Store Your BitCoin and Crypto Online

Hi, Sean here from CoinYou.Co. Its our mission to teach regular people how to use crypto because it is the future of money. If you want to know the benefits and why you should care about crypto, check out this short video.

It’s probably easier than using a credit card or bank account, but those things are so normal that people have gotten used to it.

I’m going to be using some crypto terms, so if you want to make sure you understand all of the words, check out this ebook that has a crypto glossary.

Before you send crypto to another party, first you have to buy it. Then, after you buy it, it is automatically stored in your exchange account. It’s similar to a bank account. The exchange stores your money for you, the same way a bank stores money for you. But just like a bank, an exchange can lose your money and data.

It’s best to take control of it and be aware of how to secure your crypto off of an exchange. is a reputable online wallet with a cold storage vault. Learn more about cold storage vaults here.

So although a web wallet is connected to the internet, cold storage vaults store data offline. Another benefit of freewallet is that you can send and receive crypto to other freewallet users without transaction fees.

Step One: Go to

You can sign up with your email or social login.

The email login did not work for me, perhaps because of my chrome browser. But I was able to sign up with Facebook without a problem.

At this point it is important to set up 2 factor authentication. This is because it is much harder for someone to steal your crypto if they have to go through 2 different forms of verifying an account. For example, if someone cracked my crypto wallet password they still would not be able to get my crypto if they were also required to confirm a text message that went to my phone.

It is a best practice to always use 2 factor authentication with very secure passwords.

Now we are going to set up 2 factor authentication. Click on the “Security” section on the top right of the page.

Now you can add 3 layers of protection to your account. Today I will teach you how to add 2 factor authentication with the google authenticator app. But you can also enable a pin number and email confirmation.

Click on the 2 factor authentication on the top and then download the app and press “continue”.

Open the app on your phone. Click on the red “plus sign”. Select “Scan Bar Code”. Take a picture of the code on the screen.

Now enter the code (which changes every few seconds)

If you entered it correctly the screen will show. Click on “go to dashboard”.

You can explore the various cryptos supported a bit later. For now, ignore the prices section of different coins on the left and focus on the center of the page.

Click on the “Receive” Coins Section to choose which wallet you want to work with.

Click on the symbol of the Crypto Wallet you want to work with. Today I’m working with Ethereum (ETH) To check symbols of cryptos go to

Once you click on the symbol you will see the Address and the QR Code which represents the address. Copy that address by highlighting it with your cursor and pressing Ctrl C or by Right Clicking and selecting copy on Windows OS.

You can also use the QR Code.

If you want to receive ETH, simply give that address to the sender.

Other cryptos have similar services for tracking transactions. This is one of the great benefits of blockchain compared to the traditional financial system.

If you want to send money, choose the “send” option and insert the address of the receiver, which could be a business you want to pay, a friend you want to pay, or the address of an exchange or wallet under your ownership.

You can now transfer the funds to a more secure wallet, pay for goods and services, send friends money, or transfer the funds to an exchange and exchange it for other cryptos.
