MetaMask is a free crypto wallet software that can be connected to virtually any Ethereum-based platform.

As a W.O.W Member, one of the first things you will need to do (if you do not have one already) is set up an Ethereum Wallet. One of the most popular and user-friendly is the MetaMask crypto wallet

Let’s Get Started

  • Import wallet: This is for users who already have an existing MetaMask wallet on a different device and would like to import it over to a new one. (probably not us for now!)
  • Create a wallet: This is for users who want to set up a brand new MetaMask wallet.

Select the “Create a Wallet” option, agree to the disclaimer and create a password when prompted.

*This password is super important you need to store it somewhere safe, the best place is to physically write several copies of the password down on different pieces of paper. Dont screenshot it or store it anywhere on your computer, that is bad practice to create a digital copy of any password you create so don’t email it to yourself or store it on a phone, etc

You will need this password each time you wish to access your MetaMask wallet.

Secret recovery phrase

Your Secret recovery phrase is also super important, please follow the on-screen instructions and advice from Metamask on how to keep your Secret recovery phrase safe
