Click > Get Started
“DigiByte is a secure, finite, digital asset.
You can spend and use DigiByte at many websites and stores worldwide.
Just scan the code to pay.”
Click > Got it
“DigiByte trades like a currency.
You can trade it for other currencies like Bitcoin, UD Dollars, Euros, or Pounds.
Daily exchange rates often fluctuate.”
Click > Make Sense
“You control your DigiBytes.
This app stores your DigiByte with cutting-edge security.
No one but you can access your DGB.”
Click > Create DigiByte Wallet
“No backups, no Digibytes.
Since only you control your money, you’ll need to save your backup phrase in case this app is deleted.
Your wallet is never saved to cloud storage or standard device backups.”
We highly recommend you continue this process in order to save your DigiBytes Funds.
Click > Backup Wallet
“Are you being watched?
Now is a perfect time to assess your surroundings. Nearby windows? Hidden cameras? Shoulder-spies?
Anyone with your backup phrase can access or spend your Digibytes.”
Click > Got it
“Screenshots are not secure
If you take a screenshot, your backup may be viewed by other apps . You can make a safe backup with physical paper and a pen.”
Click > I Understand.
Now you will receive a 12-worded phrase. Be sure to write the phrase in the correct order.
Please carefully write down this phrase. We’ll confirm on the next screen.
Click > I’ve Written it down
Let’s verify your backup phrase.
You will need to tap the word in the correct order in which you received.
After you’ve completed that, click > Confirm.
“Your DigiByte wallet is backed up!
Be sure to store your recovery phrase in a secure place. If this app is deleted, your money cannot be recovered without it.”
Click > Got it
“Almost done! Let’s review.
DigiByte is different – it cannot be safely held with a bank or web service.
- I understand that my funds are held securly on this device, not by a company.
- I understand that if this app is moved to another device or deleted, my DigiBytes can only be recovered with the backup phrase.
Once you have read the terms, Check mark that you have understood the terms.
Click > Confirm & Finish

On this screen you can see all your wallets, accounts, and assets.”
