  • Vigvam can connect to the websites(dApps) also using the “Connect to Metamask” button. If you have both apps, you will see two windows asking you to connect: one from MetaMask and one from Vigvam. The application that will be connected first to the website. The second window, the application which we are NOT connecting to, should be closed. Read how it works here.

Optional testing: Ledger

Since you are using an external device, you do not need to worry about your private keys. Only your Ledger device has access to them. Any type of transaction can be made only through it.

  • Click the “Add Wallet” button. You can do it after installing the profile and during the installation phase.
  • Choose the Ledger way.
  • Click the Auto button. After that, the first 20 wallets will be scanned for positive balance in every main network. If there are no such wallets, it prompts you to add a default (first) wallet.
  • Follow the steps Vigvam suggests: unlock the Ledger device, open the Ethereum app, or install it if you haven’t done it yet.
  • You can change the wallet name here.
  • Click the Continue button to finish.
  • There is always a notation that it is a wallet from Ledger in its name.
  • Every time you need to sign a transaction, Vigvam will also show a window to connect the device and send a signature request to it.

Optional testing: Social Auth

  • You can also create wallets using one of the following Social Auth ways: Google, Twitter, Facebook, or Reddit.
  • This is an experimental feature that is not working in Firefox yet.
  • Click on the social network and select the account you will use to create a wallet.

The Vigvam Testing flow: interactions with dApps.

We prepared two video tutorials on how to interact with Uniswap on Avalanche and Ethereum testnets and on the Polygon testnet. You may conduct the same steps or create your own testing flow with these dapps. Don’t forget to share your experience in our form.
