Connect MetaMask to the app and confirm your transactions to transfer and receive tokens.

If you want to create a new account, click on

Input a name and Talisman will create the account for you. Note, that by default Talisman will display your Polkadot and Kusama balances.
To find the CFG address of your account, click on
Copy Address and search for Centrifuge. Once the balance of your Centrifuge address is larger than zero, it will automatically be displayed in your account list as well.
Finally, to see an overview of your CFG accounts, click on "Receive" under your account. To see your native wallet address on Centrifuge Chain select CFG (Centrifuge) from the list.

Polkadot Vault (formerly
Parity Signer) is a cold storage solution that allows you to use a phone in airplane mode as an air-gapped wallet. The Vault app is not technically a wallet, as it does not allow to transfer funds. It is more of a key-chain tool that will enable you the create, manage, and restore accounts or transfer funds together with other wallets or the Polkadot.js UI.
To set up a Centrifuge account using the
Parity Vault, download the app from https://signer.parity.io/ and follow the instructions in the guide. When you create an account, make sure to create keys for the
Centrifuge Mainnet Network.
You can look up your Centrifuge address by scanning the QR code on the Polkadot.js UI.
If you want to sign transactions with your account you will first need to send some CFG to this account. You can then initiate a transfer on the Polkadot.js UI by selecting 'Transfer' in the left menu or on 'Send' from the Accounts page and sign the transaction with your Vault via QR code.
Some best practices using the Parity vault securly include:
