How do I create multiple wallets on the same computer?

Everything you need to know so you can enjoy having multiple Qadirah wallets on the same computer!

What is the difference between a wallet and a portfolio?

Multiple WalletsEach wallet has its own unique 12-word secret recovery phrase and acts as a completely separate wallet.
Multiple PortfoliosEach portfolio is derived from the same 12-word phrase and each derivation is its own portfolio with its own addresses. Think of it like accounts all linked to the same 12-word phrase.

What happens when I create another wallet?

When you create another wallet on your computer, you need to create another user account on your computer and install Qadirah wallet on the new account.

This is because when you create a new wallet, you are creating a whole new set of 12-words. It is a completely separate wallet.


Why would you want to have multiple wallets?

We are commonly asked about the ability to have multiple Qadirah wallets on one computer to help separate transactions and history. Having multiple Qadirah wallets on one computer can be useful if you have a personal and business wallet, or even if there are multiple people sharing the computer and each person wants a wallet. There are many reasons!

By having multiple wallets, you can keep transactions and balances separate just like having multiple bank accounts.

The easiest way to create multiple wallets in Qadirah is to create separate user accounts on your computer’s operating system. After new users are created, you can run Qadirah under each user account and Qadirah will run separate wallets for each user account on the computer.
