Creating Substrate Account

Creating Substrate (Polkadot ecosystem) account For Unique Network

Unique Network, like most blockchains, is based on accounts or addresses. An address can own some QTZ or UNQ tokens, NFTs or some ERC-20 tokens. It can sign transactions to transfer these valuable assets to other addresses or to make some actions in Decentralized Apps (dApps). For example, an address can buy and sell NFTs on the NFT Marketplace.

A typical Quartz address looks like this: yGHuU9CWnrHMUz8GJRmpA9MowmtMKZvnq2tLc5mk3zMFizW5X

So, to purchase and sell tokens on the Market, you need to have a Unique Network account. To create a new account, you should get an address that can own NFTs and allow you to manage KSM. The best way to get an address is to install the Polkadot{.js} browser extension for Chromeopen in new window or for Firefoxopen in new window.
