How to create Free IOST accounts with Jetstream

How to create your own IOST account?

Installation of Jetstream

  1. Go to the website of Jetstream and locate the pink button that is labeled “Download Jetstream”
  1. Once you click on the button you will be brought to the Chrome web store extension page of Jetstream. Locate the blue button that says “Add to Chrome” This should initiate the installation.
  1. When the installation starts, a pop-out window will appear on the top right hand of your screen and give you a quick reminder about the installation. To proceed just click on the white button with the label “Add extension.”
  1. Clicking this button will trigger the downloading of the Jetstream extension module. This should only take a couple of seconds and once done you should see the pink logo of Jetstream in the top right corner of your screen, just beside your URL address field.
  1. Click on this logo to access the extension. This should bring you to this window where the program asks you to continue with Google credentials. To proceed you just need to click on the button labeled “Continue with Google.”
  1. The next window will ask you which Google account you want to sign in with. Just use your preferred Google account. If you don’t have one yet you have to create one. Here is a quick tutorial on how to. To proceed with our Jetstream setup click on the account you want to use.
  1. Another reminder will pop-out. Please read it carefully as there might be some privacy concerns. Click on the blue button labeled “Allow” to continue.
  1. Once clicked you will be brought to a window that will ask for your name. I am not fond of using my real name hence I just use “jetstreamer” as shown in the screenshot below. Press enter to set your name.

Creation of Your Free IOST Wallet

  1. If you find the Jetstream extension unreactive just click at any part of the screen outside of the Jetstream chrome extension and click on its logo once again to enter once more. This should bring you to this window. Now it is time to add/create a wallet, just click on the “+” icon to start creating one.
  1. Once you click the “+” the extension will ask you to choose what type of wallet you want to create. Currently, it supports IOST-based and Klaytn-based digital assets. Search for IOST by inputting its name of the search field and this should give you all IOST related digital assets that are supported in the platform. Click on the IOST selection to proceed.
  1. You will then be presented with two options. The first one is to “Create New Wallet” which is the one we want and the other is to “Load Wallet,” which allows existing wallet holders of IOST to recover their wallet into Jetstream Chrome extension wallet. Click on the “Create New Wallet” button to proceed.
  1. Clicking on the “Create New Wallet” button instantly creates your private keys. REMEMBER to keep a copy of this key. Store it somewhere safe and do not let anyone know what it is or else they will be able to restore your wallet in other IOST non-custodial wallets. Once done securing your private key click on the pink button that labeled “Stored in a safe place” to proceed.
  1. After storing the automatically generated private key will now have to input your wallet ID. This will serve as your wallet address. I have named mine “jetstreamer” hence my wallet address will be jetstreamer. Click on “Next” button to proceed.
  1. The next window will ask you to create a File Password. There is a format to be followed just make sure that you remember this password. Click on the entry field to input your password, and verify it by inputting it again. Just click “Link To Google Drive” to proceed.
  1. All done now you have an IOST Account/Wallet address. Remember your address is the Wallet ID, in this case, Jetstreamer. All now you can enjoy decentralized applications in the ultra-fast blockchain of IOST.
