? What is the
Crypto wallets are one of the foundations of Web 3. They are the gateway application into crypto ecosystems by enabling users to interact with blockchain protocols and manage digital assets.
Under the hood, wallets leverage cryptographic technologies to generate and recover private keys – a concept that we’ll define in the course of this tutorial. Those private keys give users access to public accounts that record ownership on a blockchain and expand the internet’s functionality from a global network for information exchange to a global network for disintermediated economic exchange.
?? Getting started
Make sure you have git, Node and yarn installed. Then clone the repo and run the
yarn command to install the app dependencies:
git clone https://github.com/figment-networks/wallet-tutorial.git cd wallet-tutorial yarn

? Running the development server
Start the Next.js development server on the default port 3000 with:
yarn dev -p 8080or any port other than
8080to start the server in a different port.
Once the server is running, you should see output that looks like this:
yarn run v1.22.11 $ next dev ready - started server on 0.0.0.0:3000, url: http://localhost:3000 info - Using webpack 5. Reason: Enabled by default https://nextjs.org/docs/messages/webpack5 event - compiled successfully
You can now view the running application at http://localhost:3000
