How to create an EOS account and use Scatter to manage it

In this article, I would like to share the simple way to create an EOS account on TestNet (Jungle and Kylin) using the following steps

Install EOSIO:

For help getting started with EOS, view online documentation, which offers tutorials, samples, and a full API reference.

Basically, there are the following steps:

  • Step 1: install nodeos
  • Step 2: install CDT
  • Step 3: create development wallet


nodeos (node + eos = nodeos) — the core EOSIO node daemon that can be configured with plugins to run a node. Example uses are block production, dedicated API endpoints, and local development

cleos (cli + eos = cleos) — command line interface to interact with the blockchain and to manage wallets.

keosd (key + eos = keosd) — component that securely stores EOSIO keys in wallets.

eosio-cpp — Part of eosio.cdt, it compiles C++ code to WASM and can generate ABIs.

Create an EOS account:

1. Install Scatter:

If Ethereum has Metamask, on EOS we have Scatter. Scatter is a wallet application with fully open source.

After installing Scatter, open it and Add Keys to obtain a new key pair (public/private key)

Create a new key
Export this private key as text
Reveal to see your private key

2. Jungle TestNet:

create an account: mroomsoftcom
your account has been created successfully

3. Kylin TestNet:

Check account: mroomsoftcom

4. Mainnet:

EOS blockchain is different from Ethereum, you must cost money to create EOS account on MainNet. By using the third party like or, you will pay ETH, BTC or BCH in order to create EOS account.

That’s it. In the next section, I will show you how to deploy and interact with BlockPass Smart Contract on EOS using Scatter and cleos command.

If you have any problem, don’t hesitate to ping me via and don’t forget to follow our github to see our works.
