How do I create a new Pocket?

Please note that multi-currency accounts are NOT enabled for U.S. residents and only BTC Pockets will be available.

However, you will have the possibility to create multiple BTC Pockets.

Our Pocket is similar to a physical wallet and is meant to be used on a day-to-day basis. With your Pocket, you can pay for goods and services and send bitcoins to other people.

Within one Xapo account, you're not restricted to just one Pocket. Currently, up to 100 additional Pockets can be created!


You can create a new Pocket in your Xapo account using the Xapo app (Android or iPhone) or a web browser.

Keep in mind that your Pocket is supposed to hold the bitcoins you carry for everyday needs. For long-term savings and anything above what you spend on a daily basis, we recommend using your Vault. The Vault functions like a saving account in that it is where you want to store your bitcoin to make sure it is safe and protected.
