GeroWallet Beta Release

6 min readAug 13, 2021

The beta version of GeroWallet is now available on the Google Chrome Store

GeroWallet, Cardano’s first all-in-one wallet, designed for ease of use and comprehensive functionality, is proud to announce its beta release. The browser wallet can be downloaded from the Google Chrome Web Store beginning August 12, 2021.

We have put together a simple step-by-step guide on how to set up and use the wallet to send and receive ADA.

Step 1. Add the GeroWallet extension from the Chrome Web Store. After completing step 1, please proceed to step 9 if you are recovering a 15 key seed phrase from AdaLite or Yoroi. Daedalus 24 word seed phrase is not currently supported at this time, it will be added later.

Step 2. Open the GeroWallet extension within your browser.

Step 3. Select your language.

Step 4. For first-time users, select Create Cardano Wallet. We will cover how to restore an existing wallet in Step 9.

Step 5. Enter a password that meets the requirements, check the Terms of Use box, and acknowledge that GeroWallet cannot recover your password if you lose it.

Step 6. Your secret backup phrase will be displayed on the next screen. This phrase is critical for restoring or backing up your wallet. We recommend writing it on a physical piece of paper and storing it somewhere safe. We do not recommend storing it on your personal computer or mobile device. Never share the backup phrase with anyone, under any circumstances. Doing so would grant them access to your wallet and ALL the funds stored within it. This phrase is unique to every wallet and CANNOT be changed.

Step 7. Select the words to confirm that you have stored your secret backup phrase.

Step 8. Give your new GeroWallet a name and click continue.

Congratulations! You have created a new wallet.


The following steps are for users who want to restore an existing Cardano wallet.

Step 9. If you are restoring an existing ADA wallet to GeroWallet, select Restore Wallet.

Step 10. Enter your secret backup phrase (i.e. seed phrase).

Congratulations! You have successfully restored your wallet.
