MetaMask Installation & Configuration

Install and configure the MetaMask Wallet.

Step 1: Install and set up MetaMask

MetaMask can be downloaded on Chrome and Firefox, or on iOS and Android if you are a mobile user.

1. Head over to the MetaMask download page. From there, select whichever platform you’re using and follow the steps to install it on your device.

2. After installing the wallet, open the wallet on your browser and select Create a Wallet. Write down the backup seed phrase somewhere safe (preferably not on a device with Internet-connection). Without this seed phrase, your funds cannot be recovered if your device is damaged or lost. After that, confirm that you have written them down as prompted by Metamask.

3. You should now have your wallet and be able to send and receive funds.

Step 2: Add Customized Network

You might notice that you are using an Ethereum wallet. Let’s change that:

  • Open the wallet, click to expand the dropdown menu in the top-right corner.

  • Select Settings.

  • Scroll down and then select Networks.

  • Click Add Networks.

  • Enter network details. A list of network details is provided below.

  • Once you have saved the relevant network details in your wallet, you should be able to see that your wallet is set to the new network you have just recorded. You can now fund your wallet and explore accordingly.
