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.
For more information on setting up a wallet, please visit MetaMask Learn.


First, head to https://app.disco.xyz/ on your browser.
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.
Click the right arrows to proceed, and you'll be prompted to create a DID. Click on Create my DID, then Create new Account in the following modal.
Click Continue, to allow Disco access to read and store data from Ceramic Network.
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.
