As mentioned in our previous communications to our users, at the end of November 2020 Lunie will no longer be supporting the Polkadot and Kusama networks or any of its tokens within the Lunie suite of apps. With that, we’ve created a quick guide for Lunie users to export their Polkadot and Kusama addresses and use them elsewhere without any staking interruptions whatsoever.
What You Need To Do
- Make sure you have your Polkadot or Kusama backup code / seed phrase stored correctly. You can use this backup code to access your address with any trustworthy wallet. You can try importing it into Polkadot.js to verify that your seed phrase is correct.
- If you don’t have your backup code / seed phrase stored correctly, Lunie gives you the option to export your seed phrase from the browser extension. We wrote a detailed explanation of how to do this in our help center.
For more information about how non-custodial wallets work you can refer to our help centre.
Restoring Your Polkadot or Kusama Address In Polkadot.js
We recommend restoring your Lunie generated seed phrase using the Polkadot.js suite of apps including the web interface and browser extension found here: https://polkadot.js.org/
To restore a Lunie created Polkadot or Kusama address in the browser extension, you should use the option to “import from a pre-existing seed” during the account setup. You will just need to give the account a name and create a password for it. You do not need to use the same password used on your Lunie wallet if you do not want to.
Attention: To import a Kusama address, you need to select the Kusama network in the top left corner. If not, the address that you create and see is a Polkadot address and will not show your tokens.
If you have any questions about Lunie address exporting please feel free to reach out to us directly via our support email. For questions regarding Polkadot and Kusama wallets and their latest functionality we encourage you to check out the official Polkadot.js documentation.
