# Keplr

Connect your Keplr wallet with Evmos.

Note: The Keplr extension is officially supported only on Chromium-based explorers.

The Keplr (opens new window) browser extension is a wallet for accessing applications in the Cosmos ecosystem and managing user identities. It can be used to connect to Evmos mainnet and claim rewards, send and stake tokens, interact with governance, and more.

# Set Up Keplr

Note: Further information about the process of setting up Keplr can be found in the official Keplr Documentation (opens new window) or in this Medium article (opens new window).

Open the Keplr extension on your browser. If you are setting up Keplr for the first time, you can either create a new account or import an existing account.

# Create a New Account

There are several ways to create a new account:

# Create an Account with a Seed Phrase

  1. In the initial pop-up window, choose Create New Account
    • If you have used Keplr before, click on the silhouette in the upper-right corner, then the blue box labeled Add Account, and select Create New Account
  2. Choose to have a seed/mnemonic phrase of 24 words, and save the phrase
  3. Enter a name for your account (can change later)
  4. Once you have transcribed your 24 word seed/mnemonic phrase, click on Next
  5. To confirm the creation of the new account, click on the words on the right order in which they appear in your seed/mnemonic phrase, and press Register
  6. If you have not used Keplr before, set a password for the Keplr extension, and click Confirm

# Create an Account with One-Click Login

Note: It is suggested to create an account via mnemonic phrase or delegate via Ledger, not to use One-Click Login.

  1. Choose the option Sign in with Google
  2. Now enter the email/phone number associated with your Google account, the password, and click Next
  3. If you have not used Keplr before, set a password for the Keplr extension, and click Confirm

# Import an Existing Account

There are several ways to import an existing account:

# Import an Account with a Seed Phrase

  1. In the initial pop-up window, choose Import Existing Account
    • If you have used Keplr before, click on the silhouette in the upper-right corner, then the blue box labeled Add Account, and select Import Existing Account
  2. Enter your mnemonic/seed phrase/private key in the appropriate slot, seperating the words with spaces and taking care to check they are spelled correctly
  3. Make sure you have imported the account with the correct derivation path, viewable by clicking on Advanced
    • Normally, the derivation path should be m/44'/…’/0/0/0, but if you see that importing the account via mnemonic on Keplr, the Cosmos Mainnet address displayed is different than yours, it is possible the derivation path ends with 1 (or another number) instead of 0
    • If this is the case, you just have to start the process over, and replace the last 0 with 1
    • Learn more in the Keplr FAQ (opens new window)
  4. If you have not used Keplr before, set a password for the Keplr extension, and click Confirm

# Import an Account with a Ledger

  1. In the initial pop-up window, choose Import Ledger
    • If you have used Keplr before, click on the silhouette in the upper-right corner, then the blue box labeled Add Account, and select Import Ledger
    • Be sure you have both the Cosmos and Ethereum Ledger apps downloaded on your Ledger device
  2. To complete the connection with your Ledger Nano Hard Wallet, follow the steps described in the pop-up that appears (a detailed tutorial can be found here (opens new window))
  3. If you have not used Keplr before, set a password for the Keplr extension, and click Confirm
  4. Switch to the Ethereum app on the Ledger, then select “Evmos” from the Keplr chain registry to connect the public key

# Connect Keplr to Mainnet

Once you are signed in to the Keplr extension, you can connect the wallet with the Evmos network. The Evmos mainnet network is already built into Keplr; look for the Evmos network.
