# Getting Started with Blockwell Wallet Android

This guide will get you started using the Blockwell Wallet Android app.

# 1. Install Android App

First, you'll need to install the Blockwell Wallet Android app.

At this time the Blockwell Wallet app is not yet on the Google Play Store, so you will need to install it manually.

# Enable external apps

Before you can install the app, you will need to allow installing external or unknown apps on your phone.

If you have a Samsung phone with Android 8 or newer

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Go to Biometrics and Security.
  3. Go to Install unknown apps.
  4. Find and select the browser you normally use.
  5. Enable Allow app installs.

Other phones with Android 8 or newer

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Go to Security & Privacy.
  3. Go to More Settings.
  4. Press Install apps from external sources.
  5. Find and select the browser you normally use.
  6. Enable Allow app installs.

Other phones with Android 7 or earlier

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Go to Security.
  3. Under Device administration find and enable Unknown Sources.

# Download the Blockwell Wallet app

You can download the app by clicking the following on your phone:

(opens new window)

Or by visiting app.blockwell.ai (opens new window) on your phone and scrolling down to the "Download for Android" button.

After the download finishes, click to Open the file, and tap "Install".

# 2. Register for an account

Open the installed Blockwell Wallet app, and you'll first see the login screen. Tap the text No Account? Register here.

Fill in your email address and a password and tap REGISTER.

After you register, you will be taken to the main wallet screen of the app:

Android Wallet Screen

At this point a couple of things will happen in the background:

  • You will receive an email with your new Blockwell Wallet address and some additional information.
  • Your Blockwell Wallet will be sent 0.1 ETH on Rinkeby, and 100 Food Coins so you can start playing around with the app and QR Codes.

You will see the Food Coin balance on the wallet screen change to 100 within a minute of signing up.


Your account is the same for all Blockwell Wallet apps, so you can also log in to the Web App (opens new window) with the same email and password.

# 3. Scan a QR Code

You can now start using the Blockwell Wallet Codes. Let's start with a simple one, here's a QR Code that lets you transfer Food Coins:

Send Food Coins


On the wallet screen in the Blockwell Wallet app, tap the QR icon QR Icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen. This will open the QR Code Scanner. Point the phone's camera towards the QR Code so that it's framed inside the square:

Android QR Scanner


You'll notice that in addition to the QR Code itself, there's also a Deep Link below it. With a Deep Link you can still use the QR Code by simply clicking the link, even if you're unable to scan the QR Code itself.

For example if you're viewing this page on your phone, you obviously can't scan the QR Code on the phone's screen with the same phone (except maybe with a couple of mirrors).

If you click the link on your Android phone that has the app, it will take you into the app. If you click the link on a different device, you will be taken to the Web App version.

# 4. Fill in the form

After scanning the QR Code, the app will present you with a screen that lets you fill in any details the transaction might need. If you scanned the QR Code on this page, you'll see the following form:

Android Food Coin Transfer

In the form you can fill in the wallet address you want to send Food Coins to, and the amount you want to send.

You'll notice that the To Wallet field has a small QR icon on the right. You can tap that icon to scan a wallet address from someone else's phone, as well as other wallet software like Ledger, Trezor, MetaMask and so on.

The Blockwell Wallet app can display a QR of your Blockwell Wallet as well. Tap the three dots to the right of your wallet address on the main screen and select Display Wallet QR.

Display Wallet QR


You can always copy your own Blockwell Wallet address to clipboard by tapping the address on your wallet screen.

# 5. Preview the transaction

Once you've filled in the form, you can preview what the transaction on the blockchain will be by tapping Transaction Preview:

Transaction Preview

The preview is showing that it'll perform the transfer function on the contract at address 0xe8340FdfE79851e9E117b3033E147a654dbDb0Ae, which is the address of Food Coin.

Below that it's showing all arguments of the contract function. In this case the arguments are the same as what you typed into the form.

# 5. Accept

Finally, you only need to tap ACCEPT and the transaction will be sent and you'll be presented with the confirmation screen:

Transaction Confirmation

This screen will update as the status of the transaction changes.

# 6. What's next

Now you can use Blockwell Wallet with other QR Codes. For example, you can deploy your own ERC20 token, or you can read about creating QR Codes.
