Petra on Chrome browser only

The Petra wallet extension is supported only on the Chrome browser. However, the extensions for Brave browser and Kiwi browser and Microsoft Edge browser will also work.

If you are a voter, then we recommend strongly that you do not store your Aptos voter keys with a custodian before the custodian supports this function. Until then, we suggest you store your voter keys in an Aptos wallet like Petra or Martian.

This document describes how to perform voter operations while using an Aptos wallet.

  1. Go to the Proposals section of the Aptos Governance page.
