How do I create an Oxis account?
Welcome to Oxis.com!
In this article, we will guide you step by step on how to create your account so that you can manage your favorite cryptocurrencies. Stay with us and you will see that creating your account and using it safely is very easy!
What do you need to create your Oxis.com account?
The answer is simple: All you will need is a valid email address- and that you really want to be your own bank ;-).
If you are starting in the world of cryptocurrencies, Oxis.com offers you a cryptocurrency portfolio, wallet, exchange, lending, and fiat-to-crypto ramps that you can access with just your email. And best of all, we don't need or collect any of your personal information.
Step 1. Register
First things first- You must access https://app.oxis.com/signup and verify that the address is correct (avoid being a victim of phishing , accessing a false web page).
On the Oxis registration page, enter your preferred email and create a unique, secure password which will be confirmed in the next field.
We highly recommend that this password is greater than eight characters, unique from any other password you're using, and is kept offline somewhere safe.
Also, to be sure that the password is secure, you must combine both numbers, letters, and punctuation marks/symbols that are easy to find on the keyboard. Again, It is very important that you do not use this password on another website, as the security of your account at Oxis.com could be compromised.
By creating an account, you are accepting the conditions of service of Oxis.com. You can click on the link under the form to review the ToS.
Once you have your password ready, you will be asked to confirm your email to check that it is a valid address.
Leaving the Oxis tab open, in a new tab of your browser you can then access your email. There you will find a new message from Oxis.com that will contain the verification link. If you can't find it in your inbox, check your spam folder.
By clicking on the provided link you will be redirected to our login page. This link will expire shortly. If this happens, you will need to request a new one.
Likewise, Oxis will ask you to verify the device from which you logged in for greater security. This will happen every time you open your account in a new browser or delete your browsing history.
You can find the verification link in your email tray and you should use it immediately, as it expires after a few minutes.
In this way, if there is an unauthorized login request to your account, you can find out and immediately contact the Oxis team for assistance.
You will receive a welcome message and then you can use your new account.
Step 2: Customize your account
Congratulations! If you have followed the steps described above on how to create your Oxis account, you are already part of our community .
The next thing you can do is customize your account, so that you get the best user experience in Oxis!
In the left bar of the screen, click on the " Profile" section. On the following screen you will see four options:
Select the first one: " Settings". There you will find five customizable sections: currencies, notifications, newsletter, currencies and languages.
In this section you can choose which of the supported assets you would like displayed in your portfolio ( Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dash, Bitcoin Cash, among others).
You can configure where you want to receive notifications about your account on Oxis.com. Choose whether to enable email, browser, or both notifications.
Enable the news and updates about Oxis.com.
Select the fiat currency in which your balance will be expressed for the associated cryptocurrencies: i.e. euro or dollar.
You can configure the language of your preference, selecting English or Spanish.
In the left sidebar you will also find a section called " Accounts". With it, you can see your available balance in dollars (USD) or euros (EUR) and send or receive cryptocurrencies in your Wallet.
To send or receive, you just have to click on the logo of the cryptocurrency of your choice.
On the following screen, if you want to send funds, indicate the balance you want to send and the address.
If you want to receive cryptocurrency to a wallet, share the address or the QR code. You can expand this information in our article What is a Bitcoin Wallet (and other cryptocurrencies)?
In addition, you can add or remove any of the supported cryptocurrencies being displayed from your portfolio and check their value in dollars or euros. Likewise, you will be able to see its changes in a easy to read chart for both daily and monthly price trend, as well as the balance(s) you have in your account.
In the " Exchange" section also located on the left panel, you can exchange your balances from one currency to another. For example, you can select an amount of bitcoin (btc) that you have in your account and exchange them for ether (eth).
An order will be created that you can monitor at all times through the exchange process.
Step 3: Secure your account
The most important thing when using Oxis is the security of your assets. Therefore, we offer three methods to assist in securing your account.
In the left bar choose the option " Profile" again.
The section you should now click on is " Security". In this screen you can manage your password (secure or change it), choose the configuration of the verification in two steps ( 2FA ), and obtain your Mnemonic or Seed.
Secure your password
To protect your password, you can choose between nine predetermined questions that our team puts at your disposal. Choose the three that you can remember best and keep them in a safe place.
This is one of the most delicate steps of all, because you will proceed to encrypt your password. Make sure you don't forget the answers, because if this happens, you won't be able to access your funds (and even we won't be able to help you). Learn more about how to keep your Wallet account safe here .
After choosing your three questions and entering your answers, re-enter your password.
It is very important that you secure your password and back up both the password and the security answers in a safe place. You will not be able to access your cryptocurrencies again if you lose the password and the three security answers .
Activate two-step verification
To minimize the risk that cybercriminals can access your account and steal your funds, Oxis allows you to activate two-step verification (2FA). With it, you will receive an access code on your mobile device when you enter your account.
Once you click on the “Two-Step Verification” section, you will see a QR code on your screen. Scan it with the 2FA application that you have installed on your mobile, and then enter the six digits that will appear on your device on the Oxis page.
If you cannot access the camera to scan the QR, you can also manually enter the code under the QR image.
Download your Mnemonic or Seed
The next section allows you to download your Mnemonic or Seed. In short, this is the friendly representation of your private key. To find out more about what it is and how it works (visit our article What is a Wallet? )
Keep your Mnemonic offline and sucre, as it is the only access to your cryptocurrencies and Oxis does not store a copy of it. This makes us a non-custodial Wallet as the Oxis team does not control nor can we access any of our customers wallets and/or funds. If you lose these twelve words, you will not be able to access your funds.
Once you have activated these three security methods (secure your password, activate 2FA and download your Mnemonic), then the security status of your account is complete.
If you are an experienced user in the world of cryptocurrencies and you already have pre-existing private key(s), you can import it to Oxis.com so that you can manage your cryptocurrencies with us.
You will find this option at the end of the " Security" section. Click on "Import Mnemonic" and enter the twelve words of your Seed. Re-enter your Oxis.com password and you will be able to manage your funds.
