Guarda Wallet is a free, open source tool for creating wallets that work with the Ethereum platform.
Guarda Wallet provides three different options to store ERC20 compatible tokens such as GFT. It comes in a web-wallet, desktop, and mobile variant. In this guide, you can read how to safely store GFT in the online Guarda Wallet.
Store GFT in Guarda Wallet for web
To access the Guarda Wallet for the web, go to the web-wallet page. Make sure that your computer is free of viruses, malware, and other malicious software. Global Funeral Care strongly advises checking on this matter first.
Step 1: Open Guarda Wallet web-version
Open the Guarda Wallet web-version by clicking on ‘Sign In’. Make sure your computer is free of viruses, malware, and other malicious software. Also, check whether you are connected to the correct and secured domain. You should be connected to Guarda.co (including a secured connection).
Step 2: Create or restore a wallet
When you are new to Guarda you will need to create a new wallet. When opening the web-version, it will prompt you to “Create a new wallet”. Click on this button and fill out a unique password. Write down this password in a secured physical location. This is the main access to the Guarda Wallet.
In the case, you are already in possession of a Guarda Wallet you can restore it using the backup codes. Click on ‘Import or Restore’ from the main screen and import your existing backup files and fill out your password. It is only possible to restore an existing account when having these files.
Instead of the standalone desktop or mobile application, your Guarda Wallet address will be stored within the cache of your browser. Once this cache has been deleted by you or an browser extension you need to use the backup file as well. Always store the backup file in a safe and secure location, because without you cannot log in anymore.
Step 3: Store backup files
After creating your online web-wallet you will be prompted to download the backup files. This is extremely important because this is the only tool to restore your wallet account. Additionally, on the web version, it is the only way to restore the wallet when the browser cache is flushed or deleted. Each time this occurs the website needs to import the backup file.
Go to ‘Guarda Backup’ under the ‘Backup and keys’ section of the web-based wallet. Under this tab, the Backup can be downloaded, by clicking on the ‘Download backup file’ button. Normally this file will be downloaded towards the downloads folder. Always make sure to store this file in a secure location, preferably an encrypted vault.
Step 4: Add GFT as a custom token
After creating the wallet using the web version of Guarda Wallet, add GFT as a custom token. On the left side of the screen, you will discover the available token protocols. Seek for Ethereum and click on ‘Tokens’. A list carrying several tokens opens. Scroll to the bottom and click on the link ‘Add Custom ERC20’.
Add GFT to the Guarda Wallet using the smart contract address: 0x7AEe07966371813BABFbbe902dB9401c06A8d0B1. Click on ‘Add token’ and GFT will be saved in the Guarda Wallet. The Global Funeral Token (GFT) will be accessible under the Ethereum tab within the left sidebar.
Step 5: How to receive GFT using Guarda Wallet for web
After adding the GFT smart contract address to your Guarda Wallet as a custom token, you can receive and send GFT. To receive GFT on your Guarda Wallet you need to go to the ‘Receive’ tab inside the ‘Wallets’ segment of the application. Choose the ‘Global Funeral Token’ under the field ‘Your Wallet’. If you cannot find the token, you need to add it first (go back to step 4).
When you have chosen the Global Funeral Token (GFT), the Guarda Wallet gives your wallet address and QR-code. Use this address to receive GFT within the wallet. You can both share this address with others or use it yourself.
Step 6: How to send GFT using Guarda Wallet for web
It is easy to send GFT to another ERC20 address using the Guarda Wallet for web. Go to the ‘Send’ tab under the ‘Wallet’ segment. At first, pick the Global Funeral Token (GFT) wallet under the field ‘From’. If you cannot find the token, you first need to add it (go back to step 4).
Next, fill out the ERC20 address where you want to transfer the tokens to. Following, you need to fill out the number of GFT that you want to transfer. To do so, you need to have a sufficient number of GFT in your web Guarda Wallet. Additionally, you can click on ‘Advanced options’ to determine the transaction speed by determining the number of gas you want to use. At last, click on the ‘Next’ button to transfer GFT to a different wallet.
Step 7: Verify token balance on etherscan.io
After receiving or sending GFT using the web version of Guarda Wallet, you can check the token balance on etherscan.io. You can do this by filling out your wallet address in the search bar on etherscan.io. The wallet address can be obtained under the Receive tab (see step 5).
