TNC Metamask

Welcome to the nifty chicks. It's Mint-ECell here and today I'm going to be walking you through. Step-by-step how to set up your very own digital wallet using Metamask. Let's do this.

All right, everyone. So in today's episode, we are going to walk you through step-by-step how to set up Metamask. And just so you know, I decided to do this episode alone just because it's really a lot of screen-sharing and not a lot of conversation. So I'm just going to go ahead and jump right into it.

So the first thing you want to do is go to metamask.io forward slash download and download the Metamask extension for your browser. As you can see here, I am using the Brave browser, which I personally believe is the most secure for. Doing anything for crypto does not track you and track your information and share with everybody in the world.

So that's why I use Brave. I highly recommend you do as well. So the first thing I'm going to do here is go ahead and install. I'm going to click install meta mask for Chrome, even though I'm using Brave. So you can see here, it says, add to Brave. I'm going to go ahead and do that. There we go. It can read and change all your data on all your websites.

I'm going to go ahead and say, go ahead. Yes. Add that extension because I trust Metamask. To do what they say they're doing and hopefully not steal my cryptos. So now you can see Metamask has been added , and I can go up here and click my extensions. I'm going to go ahead and pin that so I can easily go to Metamask, you can see I've got metal mask and this is Phantom up here. We can talk about Phantom another day, but in the meantime, we're going to go ahead and. Get started with Metamask. I do love when you are doing anything with men, I'm asking, you can see a little Fox face when you move your cursor.

So that's kind of fun. So let's go ahead and click get started. We are going to set up a new meta mask today, so we don't need to worry about having a secret recovery phrase because we don't have that yet. So we're going to go ahead and. Let's get set up and create a wallet. There we go. Now this is up to you.

It's personal opinion here. If you want to help improve Metamask, I'm going to go ahead and click agree. That's up to you, then you want to make sure that you're using a secure password that you aren't using. Other places that it's not your dog's name or your birth date. You want to make sure it's something new and be sure to do uppercase lowercase, use numbers, use symbols, make it as complex as you possibly can.

I'm going to go ahead and put in my. Password here ups and I use a certain thing when I do my passwords. It's a good way to help you remember. Okay. So my passwords match, I'm going to go ahead and click that I've read and agreed to the terms of use, which if you want to read through those, feel free, I'm not going to do that for this.

Okay, so I've created my password. Now I'm going to, I'm going to go ahead and share this video with you because I think it's important. So I'm going to make this full screen so you can see the whole thing. Let's play the video. Let him ask is a new way to connect to sites and applications on traditional websites.

A central database or bank is responsible for controlling and recovering your account. But on meta mask, all of the power belongs to the holder of a master key. Whoever holds the key controls, the accounts, your secret recovery phrase is your master key. It's a series of 12 words that are generated when you first set up Metamask, which allow you to recover your wallet and funds.
