Go to the Persistence wallet page and hit the Create Wallet button.
Take a moment to read the important notice on the following screen and click Next.
You will get to see a random list of words what is called the Mnemonic Seed Phrase.
Don't be to quick to click on Next, because this phrase is very important!
It’s very important to save this Mnemonic Seed phrase somewhere safe, because this will be the key to get access to your wallet.
Not only the words, but also the order of the words is important. Anyone who has access to this phrase, may take all of the assets you hold in that wallet. So don’t share this with anyone.
Pesistence uses seed phrases of 24 words because the more words you have, the more secure your phrase is.
Only when you've stored your Mnemonic seed phrase safely, click on Next. A few words will be left out of the phrase and you will be asked to fill in the gaps to regenerate the original Mnemonic phrase as a safety measure.
Hit Submit to continue creating your wallet.
After you've submitted the correct Mnemonic Phrase, you will be asked to generate a KeyStore File.
