How to set up your Kinesis Wallet

What is the Kinesis Wallet?

The Kinesis Wallet interface acts as an additional layer of security for the storage of Kinesis gold and silver-backed currencies, KAU and KAG, which utilises the power of distributed ledger technology through the Kinesis Blockchain Network. Users can send and receive from their eWallet to other addresses. However, usability is limited to only KAU and KAG Kinesis currencies.

The Kinesis Wallet is suitable for users who intend to hold large amounts of Kinesis gold and silver currencies, KAU and KAG for a long period of time.
