How to create an Ethereum Wallet on Coin98 Wallet?

Before using 1inch, users need to create an Ethereum (ETH) wallet. Users can create a new Ethereum wallet on Coin98 Wallet or import an existing Ethereum wallet from other wallets to Coin98 Wallet. Creating a Multi-chain wallet on Coin98 Wallet will also include an Ethereum sub-wallet.

Preparing ETH (optional) as gas fee

1inch uses ETH for gas fees. Therefore, in order to trade on 1inch, users must have ETH in their wallets. Users can buy ETH on a centralized exchange such as Binance, FTX, Gate,... and send it to the Ethereum wallet address on Coin98 Wallet.

Note: 1inch is now also available on different blockchains apart from Ethereum, such as Binance Smart Chain, Polygon and Optimistic Ethereum. In this article I am using 1inch on Ethereum, therefore I have to prepare ETH as gas fee. In order to use 1inch on other blockchains, you have to prepare their corresponding native coins: BNB for Binance Smart Chain, and MATIC for Polygon.
