KYC / AML approved users can connect their digital wallets to both the Verified and Open pools in the Earn protocol. Non-KYC / AML approved users can only connect to the Open pool.

We recommend using the Google Chrome plugin for MetaMask. Once installed, the Metamask fox icon will appear as an extension at the top right hand corner of user web browsers. A prompt will appear requesting log-in for wallet activation when visiting Web3 enabled sites.
Please note that if the MetaMask prompt does not automatically open, you may need to first 'Select Liquidity Pool' >> 'Continue' and connect to the wallet manually by clicking the 'Connect' button in the top-right corner.

Gnosis Safe wallet management system is recommended for participants intending to add an extra security layer via multiple user key signature verification on transactions. This is known as "MultiSig". Rules can be created requiring multiple key-holder signature approval for transaction execution.
Users can create an account and visit https://wallet.portis.io/ to log in before connecting to Earn.
Balances are displayed by asset type.
Users can then toggle between Earn and Portis browser tabs, approving any Earn transactions in the Portis wallet tab.
In addition to MetaMask, and Gnosis Safe, Earn also supports other wallets including Fortmatic, Ledger, Wallet Connect and Coinbase Wallet. Information on how to connect and use these wallets will be added here soon.
