What is the Metamask Wallet?

According to COINSUTRA, MetaMask is an Ethereum wallet that lets you connect to the Ethereum blockchain. It is a kind of wallet that has several extensions for different browsers.
MetaMask also allows you to access the world of the decentralized web by letting you use several Ethereum DApps through it.

We are here to set up the Metamask Wallet.

Step 1: The first thing to do is to go to the Metamask Website. Here is the link: https://metamask.io/


230

Step 2: After opening the website, you will see this on your screen. Click the “GET CHROME EXTENSION"

231


Step 3: After doing the second step, click “Add to Chrome” that you will see at the upper right corner of your screen.

233

Step 4: Click the “Get Started” button to get started.

234

Step 5: There will be two options that will appear. You can click the “Import Wallet” if you already have a wallet. And if you are just new to MetaMask click the “New Wallet” to create a new one

235

Step 6: In here, I clicked the "Create a Wallet" and this will appear. Input your password with a minimum of 8 characters. After entering your password, click on the "Terms of Use" and then click “Create”.

Step 7: 12 Seed Phrase will appear on your screen. Save it or write it on a paper to make sure you won’t forget the words because you will use it if you’re going to import your wallet.
Take note: Do not ever share or reveal it to anyone.

238

Step 8: Confirm the Seed Phrase by selecting the words chronologically that was shown in the previous step.

240

Step 9: If you finished confirming your seed phrase, you already passed the test. There are also some guides on how to store your seed phrase safely. Make sure to read everything first before clicking “All done

241

Step 10: There you have it! You've already created your Metamask account. From here you can see your wallet address, token, and transaction history. And at the right corner, you can also see Main Ethereum Network or if you prefer you can select test network

242


The next following steps are optional. I’m just going to show it.

Step 11: You can click “Add token” (if ever you want to add a new token in your wallet)

244


Step 12: And this thing will appear on your screen. Go to “Custom Token
(if ever you want to add the new token in your wallet)

247


Step 13: You need to fill everything up by entering the token contract address, token symbol, and decimals of precision.
(if ever you want to add the new token in your wallet)

248

Step 14: Here, you can see your account. And you can create many wallets if you want, then you can have your 2nd account or more. You can also import your account instead of creating a new one and enter the 12 seed phrase. There is also an option to connect your wallet to your hardware wallet.
