xDai Burner Wallet Guide

One of the biggest restrictions for new participants to enter the cryptocurrency ecosystem is the difficulty and steep learning curve. Traditional wallets put a huge burden on the user to understand a new currency and deal with seed phrases. This inspired the creation of Burner Wallet. Burner Wallet enables users to exchange an intuitive currency like xDai using a simple and ubiquitous platform such as their mobile or desktop web browsers.

Users can transfer xDai from one-another within seconds with a simple QR code scan without downloading any applications or browser extensions. Users can even send value through messaging services like WhatsApp with a simple link!

Below is a guide on how to create, transfer, and send xDai tokens from your Burner Wallet.

Create your Burner Wallet

On your mobile device or web browser, go to https://xdai.io/. Your wallet has been created. Yes - it is that easy. Since your wallet’s private key is stored as a cookie in your browser’s cache, your browser will recognize your wallet everytime you load the URL.

NOTE: Please remember to sweep any value you hold to a cold wallet regularly and burn your ephemeral private key. A burner wallet is analogous to cash; you won’t carry too much because it can be lost but it’s astonishingly easy to exchange.

Receive xDai to your Burner Wallet

Step 1 - In order to receive xDai to your Burner Wallet, click on the Receive button in your wallet.

Step 2 - Either share your wallet address or your QR code with the user whom you want to receive xDai tokens from.

Step 3 - Once the user enters your wallet address or scans your QR code and confirm the transactions, your Burner Wallet will refresh with the updated xDai balance.

Step 4 - The transaction is complete. You can view your transaction history by clicking your unique profile display. A new BlockScout page will open up with all your transactions on the xDai Chain network.

Send xDai to your Burner Wallet
