You have just become a proud owner of the culmination of our true passion, knowledge, and tens of thousands of hours put into the final product called BC Vault.
It’s truly a next-generation crypto hardware wallet designed to make your crypto experience safer and easier to use. With BC Vault you can also buy, swap and exchange crypto all in one application.
Watch the Video How to start using the device
Or follow the steps below.
Check that the holographic sticker on your device is not damaged and has not been tampered with.
Carefully remove the sticker and clean the residue (we recommend isopropyl alcohol), gaining access to the USB Type C Connector.
Make sure you have internet access.
Connect the included USB cable to BC Vault and plug it into your computer.
Go to Download, download and install the BC Vault desktop application to your computer. Run the application after installation is complete.
Shake your BC Vault to initialise true random number generator that will be used for generation of your crypto wallets.
Once installed and running you will be prompted to set a Global PIN and Global Password, which is used to unlock your BC Vault device. For password/pin tips please see here.
Set your GLOBAL password and PIN and be sure to NEVER forget them!
Set your WALLET password and PIN and be sure to NEVER forget them! If you want, you can also leave WALLET password and PIN empty. We don’t recommend that, but you can do that if you don’t feel comfortable with remembering additional password and PIN.
Step 9 (optional):
Now it is a good time to test all your passwords and pins. Disconnect BC Vault device from the USB cable and reconnect it again. Login to the desktop application with your GLOBAL password and PIN.
Select your newly created crypto wallet from Step 8, click on “MORE” and select “Verify Wallet”. Use your WALLET password and PIN and you should get “SUCCESS” dialogue.
Note: In desktop application older than v1.5.9 enable “Advanced Mode” under “Settings” -> “Preferences” to be able to use “Verify Wallet” function.
You can now be sure that you can access your newly created crypto wallet successfully.
You are now ready to use your BC Vault device. If you have any other questions please consult our support portal.
Always create fresh backup after you add new crypto wallets (you will be notified about that by the application)!
For a more complete picture about BC Vaults security please see more.
NEVER forget your global and wallet Password + PIN!
Without them your BC Vault’s crypto wallets will be inaccessible! We suggest writing them down and storing them in a very secure place separate from your backups and BC Vault device.
WARNING: Fake Application In Android/Apple Store
It has come to our attention a fake BC Vault application is available in Apple Store that tries to make you export private keys from the device and import them into the application.
