How to Set Up MetaMask
First, ensure you have a $ASI-supported wallet set up. We recommend Metamask for desktop and Trust Wallet for mobile. Click “Connect Wallet” to allow AltSignals to interact with your wallet.
Step 1 – Install MetaMask wallet on your browser
Visit the MetaMask website and choose the browser on that you wish to install the wallet. The most common options are Chrome and Firefox.
Note: MetaMask is available in two forms: a mobile app and a web browser extension. This guide explains the detailed setup process when using MetaMask via a browser extension. However, the process is similar when setting up MetaMask on mobile.
Step 2 – Create a wallet
Once installed, click “Create a Wallet”.
Step 3 – Make a password
You will now be asked to create a password. Make sure your password is complex and alphanumeric.
Step 4 – Keep a record of the recovery phrase
You will now be shown a recovery phrase that consists of 12 words. Write these 12 words down on a piece of paper and secure it in a safe place.
If you or anyone enters these 12 words into MetaMask remotely, they will be able to access your wallet. So you must never share your 12-word MetaMask recovery phrase with anyone.
Step 5 – Connect to the Ethereum Network
By default, MetaMask only allows you to transact with the Ethereum network. So there is no need to change the network within MetaMask to engage with the AltSignals token.
Step 6 – Import the AltSignals Token
You will now need to import $ASI to your MetaMask wallet. You can do this by clicking on ‘Import Tokens’ and submitting the AltSignals contract address.
