Orchid Account Set-up

To start using Orchid, you need an Orchid account. There are three ways to get access to an Orchid account right now:

  • Someone could share one with you
  • You can buy an account on iOS
  • You can create an account with OXT

This set-up guide will cover the process to create an account using our web3-based dapp and your own OXT. If you already have a QR code for an existing Orchid account, you can skip to step 4 of this guide.

Check out Coinbase’s Earn Campaign for an opportunity to earn OXT while learning about Orchid!

Step1

Create a new Ethereum wallet

We recommend using a new Ethereum wallet address for Orchid that is not linked to other Ethereum products or services you use.

We test with Metamask, which is a great choice for an Ethereum wallet.

Step2

Load the Orchid DApp

Load account.orchid.com in your wallet’s browser or your preferred browser with a wallet plugin enabled. It’s a good idea to bookmark this page for the future.


You might be prompted to “connect” your wallet to the Orchid DApp so it can read the wallet account balances.

Step3

Add funds to your wallet

Adjust your account to see how much OXT you need for the efficiency you want. Also note the amount of ETH needed for network fees.

You will need both of those amounts in your attached wallet in order to create and fund the account. See our participating exchanges for acquiring OXT.

Step4

Create your account

A Signer address is needed to create the account. Generate a Signer in the DApp, or generate one in the app (Android only) and paste it in.

Hit Create account to submit both transactions to your wallet for approval. Approve both transactions and then wait for them to complete on Ethereum.

Step5

Connect your account and app

Download the Orchid app for Android or iOS.

Google PlayiOS

Open the app, tap Manage Profile, create a New Hop and then Link Orchid Account to pay for VPN service.

That’s it! You’re ready to start exploring freely. Stay curious out there!
