Setup Metamask Wallet
Go to the download page, choose your platform, and hit the download button at the button. It will auto-detect the browser. But for iOS and Android, select your platform to get the links or search in the respective app stores.
Finally, you will be greeted with this. Now click Get Started to begin the registration process.
The subsequent screen will give you the option to Import Wallet, or you can Create a Wallet. Click the latter option to register a new one.
Next, you can choose to share some anonymous data with MetaMask to jump on to the following screen. You can click No Thanks for complete peace of mind–it won’t hamper your user experience with MetaMask. Select accordingly and proceed.
Now Create a strong password on the following screen.
Next, you’ll see the MetaMask team trying to emphasize the importance of the secret recovery phrase with a short video. Better watch it and click Next.
Now it’s time to save the secret recovery phrase. You can uncover the secret phrase and download it as a text file. Then click Next to proceed.
MetaMask goes to lengths to ensure you remember this important phrase as they don’t store it for you. So you see a word puzzle to rebuild that phrase, exactly the way it was. Unless you get it right, the Confirm button at the end won’t get activated, and you can’t proceed.
And if you’ve missed remembering or saving it, there is a back button under the MetaMask icon at the top. That will take you to the previous page to download and memorize it.
Once you complete this, the Confirm button will come to life. Click that, and you will see the congratulations message on the last screen of the registration process.
Finally, click the All Done on the congratulations page to enter into your wallet dashboard.
Once you have created your account, you will need to connect to a network. Metamask supports a variety of networks, including the Ethereum mainnet, testnets, and custom networks. To connect to a network, click on the network dropdown menu located at the top of the interface. Select the network you want to connect to from the list.
To add funds to your Metamask wallet, you will need to purchase cryptocurrencies from a cryptocurrency exchange. There are many exchanges that support buying cryptocurrencies with fiat currency, such as Coinbase, Binance, and Kraken. Once you have purchased your cryptocurrencies, you can send them to your Metamask wallet by copying your wallet address and pasting it into the send field on the exchange.
Metamask can be used with a variety of decentralized applications (dApps). To use Metamask with a dApp, first, navigate to the dApp website. Click on the Metamask icon located in the top right corner of the screen to connect your wallet to the dApp. Once your wallet is connected, you can start using the dApp to interact with the blockchain.
