Create a Data Backpack
The following steps will help you set up your Data Backpack for the first time.
Note: You will need an Ethereum compatible wallet! We currently support any Browser Wallet, Rainbow, WalletConnect, and Zerion.
Click on Connect your Wallet, and select the wallet you'll be using. If you're using Metamask, select Browser Wallet.
Once you connect your wallet, you'll see a pop-up modal to create your Data Backpack.
You will now be asked to provide two signatures from your wallet.
The first time will connect you to our Disco website, and the second signature will be to create your "did:identifier" for use on the Disco site.
Signing these two requests does not interact with tokens and will not access any funds in your wallet.
The first signature allows Disco to enable the decentralized identifier you just made, and the second allows Disco to link your wallet to your decentralized ID.
That's it! Your Data Backpack has been created!
Next, we'll show you how to claim your first Credential.
