Lite client: How to Create Waves Account

Account Creation with the proposed SEED

Open up your Lite Client

Click on New Account and read the New Account Notice carefully. When you have done so, click on I understand

As mentioned above, we recommend using the proposed SEED consisting of 15 English words. The total different English terms used for the SEED creation is 2048. This gives us 2048^15 different possibilities - with current technology unbreakable. Each SEED is linked to a unique address shown underneath the proposed SEED. 

We cannot guarantee the safety of the funds if the Seed phrase you come up with yourself.

Next step is to assign a name to your account. This feature is optional but particularly useful if you have multiple accounts. The name will show in the list of accounts on the main page of the Lite Client and is cached with the encrypted SEED. 

Last but not least, you have to define a password for your account. The password's sole purpose is to encrypt the SEED so it never leaves your computer in blank text form. If you forget your password, simply delete the affected address from the list on the main page and re-import it using your SEED. You will go through the same process as just described and be able to set a new password. 

If you have done all of the above, click on Register and you are forwarded to the user interface.

Account Creation with your custom SEED

If you wish to create an account using your own custom SEED, follow the Import an Account tutorial and enter your custom SEED. The rest of the process is the same as above: Set a name and password and then register the account. 

Note: We strongly recommend making use of the proposed SEED. It is cryptographically secure and cannot be broken with current tools. If you still wish to create your own SEED, make sure it has at least 35 characters and uses upper- and lowercase letters as well as symbols.
