How to create a Keplr wallet — a complete step-by-step guide 👛

What is Keplr?

Keplr is an open-source browser extension wallet that supports the Cosmos interchain ecosystem. It provides functionalities for account and wallet management for all Cosmos-SDK based blockchains.

The Keplr extension is supported only on Chrome. You can also use it on Brave, but some features may be unavailable. You can’t, however, use the Keplr extension from your mobile. Also, please note that anyone with your mnemonic seed can take your assets, and you can’t recover any lost mnemonic seed.

Keplr can easily connect to libraries such as CosmJS, simplifying the process of connecting webpages to blockchains. The Keplr extension supports transfers/staking for:

  • Cosmos Hub
  • Kava
  • Secret Network
  • Akash
  • Starname
  • Sifchain
  • CertiK
  • IRISnet
  • Regen Network (Coming March 31)
  • Cyber (beta)
  • Straightedge (beta)
