Wallet Setup

You can check out the video for this section.

TRAC token that is required for OriginTrail Decentralized Network is based on ERC20 standard that utilizes Ethereum network. In order to utilize the ODN you will need both TRAC and ETH tokens on your wallet. ERC20 standard enables use of one wallet for both crypto currencies.

ODN testnet is based on Ethereum test network Rinkeby and Alpha Trac tokens (ATRAC). We strongly advise use of dedicated wallet for ODN TestNet for security reasons. Please don’t store real TRAC tokens and ETH on that wallet in this stage. ATRAC and Rinkeby ETH have no commercial value.

OriginTrail is not responsible for setup and use of wallets and related software. We also do not provide support for this software.

If you need ATRAC token, please send us email on support@origin-trail.com with your wallet address. You can also visit our faucet faucet


The easiest way to do this is to install MetaMask. MetaMask is a Chrome Extension that allows you to interact with the Ethereum network without having to run a node on your system.

You can download MetaMask from metamask.io.

Install the Chrome plugin. This adds a little fox icon to your extension bar. Click on the icon and follow instructions to accept disclaimer and terms & conditions.

When you click on the top left “Ethereum Main Net” button of the MetaMask window you be able to select the node you want to connect to. Please select Rinkeby Test Network.


Once MetaMask is connected, you will have to enter a new password to encrypt your new MetaMask vault that will hold your keys generated by MetaMask. You will get a new wallet address.

In order to copy your wallet address, click on three dots on top right corner and select Copy Address to clipboard. You can use it further to get some test Ether from the faucet.

To get a private key you can click on the same menu and select Export Private Key.

Alternatively, if you need to create a new wallet and associate it to MetaMask, you can go to https://www.myetherwallet.com/ and follow the procedure. In the last step just select Connect to Metamask.

Get some funds on the wallet

In order to test you will need some Ether on our wallet. Initially your balance will be 0. To get some Ether to test go to https://faucet.rinkeby.io/ and follow the instructions. Remember, test network Ether does not have any exchange value, it’s just for testing and development purposes.

Once you get Ether on your account, you will be able to see new balance in MetaMask.
