Install MetaMask

* If you have already installed Metamask please skip this tutorial.

Setting up MetaMask

Step 1. Head over to

Step 2. Download and install the MetaMask version compatible with your browser.

Step 3. After it's finished downloading, click Create a new wallet.

Step 4. Agree or disagree to information collection.

Step 5. Create password.

Step 6. Click Secure my wallet. You will be given your backup phrase, also known as your "private key," which is made up of 12 words. It is good practice to write this down somewhere safe and never show or tell anyone these words. Anyone who has this phrase can access your assets and do as they please with them, so don't ever give it to anyone!

Step 7. Confirm your Secret Recovery Phrase.

Step 8. Congratulations, your wallet has successfully been created! Your account number or wallet address will look something like this: 0x279a8EeEC1E9139dE18Db3E5A57463695D424172 or as seen in the photo below: 0x279...4172. If you click on this number (abbreviated below "Account 1"), your computer will automatically copy the address.
