Protect your seed phrase

Anyone with your seed phrase can access your money, and there is no recourse for someone stealing your seed phrase. To protect your seed phrase, consider the following tips:

  • Never save or store your seed phrase as a digital file on any device.
  • Always write down your seed phrase with a pen and paper.
  • Store the paper with your seed phrase on it somewhere safe.
  • Never give your seed phrase to anyone, not even support staff.

  2. Tap Next.

  3. Confirm your seed phrase by typing or selecting the correct words in each prompt.

# Receive tokens from an exchange

  1. Purchase your tokens using any exchange that supports Terra. To view a list of current exchanges, visit the Integrations page (opens new window)

  2. Withdraw any token supported by the Terra network from your exchange. Every exchange is different. Please visit your exchange's web page for guides on how to withdraw tokens. Use the following steps as a generic guide.

    1. To receive tokens to your wallet, use your wallet address. Your wallet address will appear at the top of the Terra station Desktop app near your wallet name. Your wallet address will look like this: terra1hm4grlwkt26tccr4vclwjz3elgh224wquctwye

    2. Double-check your wallet address is correct before sending.

    3. Send the tokens from the exchange to your Terra Station wallet address.

Waiting times for transfers

When you transfer tokens from an exchange to Terra, some time will pass before the tokens appear in your wallet. Don't panic. This waiting period is normal and varies depending on the exchange. If a transfer does not appear immediately, check back after some time.

Now you have tokens on Terra!
