Sollet wallet setup

Sollet – Solana SPL token wallet is a non-custodial browser-based web wallet created by the Project Serum (DEX) team.

Note: Being a client-side browser wallet. The wallet keys are stored in your local storage which can be encrypted using a password.

When you create a new wallet, you’ll be provided with a 24-word mnemonic seed. It is very important that you backup this information safely. You’ll lose the coins and tokens from your wallet if you lose the seed word.

  1. Go to by default it will create a new wallet for you. Make sure to save the 24-word seed phrase in a safe place and click continue. You can save them on password managers like Keepass.

  2. On step 2 encrypt your wallet seed using a password. Normally you can close the wallet and access wallet back by just entering the password.

If you forget your password, you will need to restore your wallet using your seed words. Otherwise, if you clear browser cache then you cannot login using password. You need to restore your wallet again using seed words.

Once password has been chosen click create wallet and the wallet will generate a new SOL (Solana) address for you.

As you can see the wallet is clear and simple and it needs no explanation at all.

Drop down SOL account and copy the deposit address.

Note: This is your SOL receiving address. Only send SOL to this address and not any SPL tokens. Unlike ERC20 which you can send to your ETH address you’ll need to add each SPL token separately and each tokens will create a unique deposit address. Only use that specific address for that particular token.
