Step 4: Verify your email address. Please navigate to your email inbox from within the same browser you used to sign up. You'll have received an email asking to authenticate your new Silks account. (EX: Opening Gmail on your Google Chrome browser).
Step 5: Once verified, Sign In to the account you just created!
The wallet creation process will begin. To proceed, click the yellow "Create a Silks Wallet" button. Once you click create wallet, a code will be emailed to you.
