Set Up MetaMask

Install Metamask

Metamask is a cryptocurrency wallet that allows you to transfer and manage cryptocurrency.

Metamask allows you to run the Ethereum dapp directly from your browser without running the entire Ethereum node, enabling you to view and manage cryptocurrency remittances and tokens.

Metamask can be used by downloading the browser extension or mobile application. Web3 developers can start development using the browser extension.

Setup Metamask

  1. Visit metamask.io to install the browser extension or mobile application which fits your smartphone model.

  2. If you already have an existing wallet, run the wallet recovery after installing metamask. If you want to make a new wallet, create it through the wallet creation function provided by metamask.

  3. Once you have created a new wallet, save the seed phrase in a safe place.

Metamask Features

  1. Public key: The public key (address) is a hexadecimal string used by the user to send cryptocurrency to the Wallet.

  2. Private key: The user uses the private key to send cryptocurrency from the account and recover the Wallet of the 'one' wallet created on the metamask account, so the private key should be secured.

  3. Seed phrase: The seed phrase is the recovery password used to recover the metamask account, and if you recover through the seed phrase, you can recover the 'all' wallets created on the metamask account. You need to keep the seed phrase in a secure location.

  • You should maintain security so that the private key and seed phrase is not disclosed to others.
