Trust Wallet is an Ethereum based crypto wallet designed to give mobile users a secure, decentralized place to store their crypto.
While its security features are pretty advanced, this can be a double-edged sword: if you forget your 12-word passcode, you'll be locked out of your Trust Wallet forever.
Because of this, some Trust Wallet users are looking to move their crypto to newer pastures. Uphold has a lot of promising features - the main one being able to hold, buy, and trade many assets like cryptos, stocks, bonds, foreign exchange, and even precious metals inside the same account.

Have an Uphold account set up already? Start with Step 2!
Starting a new Uphold account has 3 steps: account credentials, 2-factor authentication setup, and identity verification.
First, you'll have to enter your account credentials - these include your email, a unique password, and your country of residence and citizenship. Then you'll need to look over and click agree with Uphold's terms of service, assuming you do comply.
After this, you'll enter your first and last name, birth date, and the territory you live in. Then, choose your username, and Uphold will send you a confirmation email. Open the email to continue signing up.
Uphold uses an outside 2-factor authentication app (2FA) as an added layer of security for all its users.
Apps like these work by requiring you to verify it's actually you when logging into Uphold by having you type in a time-sensitive code with the 2FA app.
Uphold uses Authy for 2FA, and you'll have to sign up with them using your phone number to continue (this signup process is pretty quick).
After everything else with your account is set up, you'll finish by verifying your identity.
Thankfully, this step is pretty quick. You'll need to do the following:
