How to create a Bitcoin Wallet with BlockChain

Now…

It will load the login page, click “create new wallet at the top”

OR

Go to the wallet signup page by clicking this link –> Bitcoin wallet 

Fill the form with your real information and a secured password you can remember quickly…

But I don’t need to stress myself because I can request for a new password now…

Request what? Blockchain doesn’t store your password on their server which means when you forget your password, your bitcoin wallet is gone…

What?????

What if I have Bitcoins in the wallet, I can’t gain access to it?

No you can’t and that is why blockchain deviced many means for you to secure your account very well…

How?

By creating a recovery password

What is a recovery password?

A recovery password is just like a second password that will be used to recover your funds or bitcoins from the wallet …

Because ones you have lost the password, you can’t access the wallet again, you can only transfer your funds away from it by using the recovery password you created for the wallet…

I hope you understand me…
