Create an account#

If you created your identity for Desktop Wallet and Concordium Legacy Wallet, it came with an initial account. The initial account is a special account that the identity provider submits to the chain. When you already have an identity, you can create more accounts with that identity yourself.

If you are using Concordium Wallet for Android, you created your identity during setup. Once you have an identity, you can create accounts with that identity.

To learn more about identities and accounts, see Identities and Accounts.


You can’t import accounts that were created on Concordium Wallet for Android or Concordium Legacy Wallet.

Before you create more accounts, you need a Ledger hardware wallet with the Concordium Ledger App installed. See Set up the Ledger device and install the Concordium Ledger App.
