What is a Talisman wallet?

A Talisman wallet is making the DotSamaverse much more accessible through their intuitive UI/UX. It has established itself as the leader in the Kusama & Polkadot wallet space with excellent user benefits including self-custody, EVM compatibility and Ledger support.

Why use Talisman?

  • Keep all your DotSama tokens in one place
  • Easily contribute to crowdloans
  • View NFTs and buy DOT, KSM & more

The browser extension wallet works in a similar way to MetaMask on Google Chrome and Firefox. It allows you to store, send and receive your KSM, DOT and many native parachain tokens from networks like Astar, Acala, Singular, Phala, Moonbeam & more. Let’s get your first wallet setup now!
