Add Public Key for a Network

In Polkadot Vault after you add the chain specs and metadata for a network, you then need to add your Public Key for that network so that you can conduct transactions.

The following steps need to be carried out on your Polkadot Vault device.

  1. Ensure that you have added the desired network chain specs and metadata.

  2. On your Polkadot Vault device select the + icon at the top right of the screen.

  3. Select the network that you would like to add a key for (note: if you cannot see your desired network then you have not correctly added the chain specs and metadata).

  4. Select Create Key.

Note: When you select Create Key, Polkadot Vault will create an account on that network with a derivation path. The derivation path will be as follows:

//polkadot for Polkadot

//kusama for Kusama... etc.

If you want to add the root key then you need to follow the steps in that section of this wiki.
