The blockchain info wallet Caleb Wright here today from WhatIsACryptocurrency

com and I know you found this video because you were looking to get bitcoin wallet through blockchaininfo So I put together this little tutorial for you, I'm going to show you how you can open bitcoin wallet today very easily through blockchaininfo I'm at the blockchain

info website here, all you have to do is click on WALLET on the navigation up top and on this screen all we have to do is simply click the create your wallet button right here in the middle of the screen And we are going to get started opening a bitcoin wallet All you have to do is enter in your email that you want connected to your wallet right here And I'd recommend also using 2 Factor Authentication [2FA] Security on your email in order to secure this bitcoin wallet account Because that is another area where hackers like to get people's information is through your email, which has oftentimes passwords and user IDs, so definitely secure whatever email you use to start up this account

Then just come up with a password Make sure to come up with a very secure password Use maybe a, particularly a phrase, multiple word phrase where you use letters, numbers and symbols to make up that phrase That's always a very strong type of password to create So now I've filled this out I'm just going to check the box here and click Continue

Alright it says the wallet was created I'm just going to click 'get started' here And boom we are in blockchaininfo and we have a wallet So I'm going to show you around here

I would consider blockchain info wallet and many of my crypto enthusiast friends in the industry would consider this to be the best independent bitcoin wallet The best free bitcoin wallet that you can get in the industry As it has great functionality, it also has a mobile application you can download to your phone that will connect with this wallet online interface So this is your main screen where you can get started sending or receiving bitcoin just by using these buttons, now obviously we don't have any bitcoin in this account yet, going to have to get some first so if you click Receive here, you'll get your bitcoin wallet address that you can copy, just by clicking that a couple times Just highlight it and you can copy it

And paste it to whoever that you are trying to get bitcoin from or if there is some service out there where you get paid some bitcoin, this is the address that you need to provide to get bitcoin sent into your blockchain info wallet You can also use this little QR code, that if you have somebody that you are trying to get paid bitcoin from, they can scan this with their mobile phone using their bitcoin wallet and then they can send bitcoin to your blockchain wallet, because that would basically put your receiving address into their phone so that they can then send you bitcoin So it's really as simple as that, then once you do have bitcoin, then you can click SEND here, and you can paste in the address, the bitcoin address of whoever or whatever organization that you are trying to send bitcoin to Then you can type in the number of bitcoin or the US dollars worth of bitcoin Whatever works better for you

For example if you put in $10, it will put in the corresponding amount of bitcoin over on the left It's like a little calculator Change it to $200 and see what that equals A quarter of a bitcoin You can add a description if you want and then you just go through the next step to send, which I can't do at the moment because there is no bitcoin in this account

But it is a very simple process Very easy to use the blockchain info wallet, it's very easy to use, I love it The menu over here on the left shows, you can get to your transactions, it will show the history of all your transactions, of course there is nothing here yet it does show up on the home screen, it will start to show under the recent activity right here as well They have the security center, which I would highly advise for you to go through and follow the steps to secure your account properly

For example I still have to verify my email from just opening up the account, I can just go to my email, so I have my email open right here Info there it is Got the email open, you just have to click 'verify email' okay so I verified my blockchain wallet Alright another important step in opening the bitcoin wallet done

Now I'm going to go back to my page here, try to refresh it Okay so they put high security on blockchaininfo, so I just have to log back in again sometimes, okay You'll have to do that, so let me just type that password in And back here looking at the security center, you'll notice email verified, alright

Please go through the rest of the process here to create a backup security phrase, make a password hint, then your going to link your mobile number and block TOR requests Now in the settings I'll show you a couple of options right over here, you have the Wallet ID, which is important to know about Because this is actually your login ID for your wallet you noticed on that screen where I just logged back in, where you enter your password, there was this long string of letters and numbers that was above the password entry field, this is basically your User ID, so you gotta save this, I recommend saving this somewhere safe, because sometimes when you go back to your blockchain info wallet online, your browser won't remember this and that is another security feature So copy that down

Alright, that's handy And then also, if you click, this is the wallet information link over here in settings, and then if you click preferences then this is where you can verify your mobile number which I highly recommend doing, you can, lets see here, you can set the wallet language, bitcoin units and some other interesting options, over here in security is just a really important area, because this is where you can, you can set up a wallet recovery phrase okay, so this is if you lose your password If you lose your password here for blockchaininfo you are going to lose access to your wallet forever Okay so you don't ever want to lose your password, however they have a plan B in case you lose your password if you set up the wallet recover phrase, it's basically going to give you like a 12 word phrase you have to save somewhere, so if you ever do lose your wallet, you have this phrase that will let you in one time, and then you can change your wallet password

And so I definitely recommend setting up the wallet recover phrase and saving that somewhere very safe, then you also have the wallet password, you can change it here, password hint, you can set a second wallet password, but you absolutely can't lose that And then I think most importantly I don't actually use this second wallet password myself, because I use 2 Step Verification I think that is good enough, I recommend using that, and you can use the google authenticator app, which is basically, it's an application you can download to your phone for free that will send you 6 digit codes every 30 seconds for whatever site that you hook it up to So if you hook it up to your blockchaininfo you'll have basically a code counter app on your phone that has this code that changes every 30 seconds, so when you come to login to blockchaininfo, you are going to have to plug in a code from that app in order to complete logging in

And that is an excellent security measure, so even if a hacker does get your password they can't get into your account unless they have your phone and your authentication app So I recommend using google authenticator, and if you want an even more secure authenticator app, then I would recommend going with the Last Pass Authenticator, I'll put a link right underneath this video that will go to Last Pass which is basically the best password management system in the industry, the most secure, it has an incredible authenticator, it's actually better than Google's because it has higher security, it has a six digit pin code you can use to just be able to open it, to get to your 2FA codes to login, and if you have an IOS, Iphone or a phone that has thumbprint recognition, you can actually use that as well, see with google authenticator, you can just open that app right up on your phone And so if anybody gets into your phone they can open that app to get at your 2FA codes, but with the Last Pass authenticator it requires either a thumbprint or pin code verification to open the app, even when you are in your phone So that's another layer of security that you can get if you use Last Pass So I'll put a link right underneath this video for Last Pass so you can check that out, I'd highly recommend that

So also another area, that if you have any other questions you can access the FAQ here which have answers to many of the commonly asked questions about how to use this wallet One other thing I really love about blockchaininfo is how when you go to settings here and you click addresses, you can actually make multiple receiving addresses for your wallet And this is really useful because you can then make the accounting for the money coming in and out of your bitcoin wallet really easy, and that is part of what we are doing here in using bitcoin in being our own bank So we have to be able to effectively account for our transactions

And so what you can do is you can simply click ADD right here, you can actually name the wallet, say you are getting paid some bitcoin from Bob on some regular basis, or some job Bob's Bitcoin, alright you can do that Click to create the address, just name it for whatever purpose it is normally and then you have that new address And all you need to do, if you want to get the address, you can click receive and then you can simply click Bob's Bitcoin and there is the address, you can provide it to Bob and whenever he wants to send you bitcoin, it will come in under the record of the transactions that go to that wallet address And of course no matter how many wallet addresses you make, it all points back to your wallet, but this is just a really easy way that you can account for your transactions, so I love it

I definitely recommend making unique wallet addresses for different purposes in your business and life So that is how you open bitcoin wallet through blockchaininfo, alright I hope you found my tutorial here, with a run through on the settings and features to be useful on the blockchain info wallet and I hope if you found it useful, please like this video, please comment underneath the video with your feedback, I'd really appreciate it And also feel free to share it with your network And use the links right underneath this video to visit my cryptocurrency industry news blog called whatisacryptocurrency
