How to download and create your ADA wallet
In this tutorial we will be using a Daedalus wallet. Daedalus is a full node wallet. This means that unlike light wallets (e.g.Yoroi, Adalite etc.) Daedalus downloads a full copy of the Cardano blockchain and independently validates every transaction in its history. That way you get maximum security and completely trustless operation, without centrally hosted 3rd party servers.

Congratulations your wallet is created and now you can transfer your ADA into it that you have purchased on an Exchange (Please use our guide on how to purchase your first ADA)
Now your wallet will synch the blockchain, this will take a while.
