MetaMask is one among many Web3 wallets that serves as a Ethereum supported crypto wallet and a way to interact with protocols using smart contracts.

Step 1:

Go to MetaMask.io

We advise bookmarking any link that might be used for phishing

Step 2:

Click on "Download" at the top right.

MetaMask is available for computers (as a browser extension) or on iOS/Android. After it's installed as a browser extension, you'll be prompted to create a new wallet.

Step 3:

Click on "Get Started" and then choose to create a new wallet (in case you do not have a Web3 one) or import existing wallet.

Step 4:

Click on "Create a Wallet". A 12-word Secret Recovery Phrase will generate automatically. This phrase will serve as the unique key to the created wallet and cannot be recovered if lost, so save it somewhere secure.

If you choose to import a wallet by entering your seed phrase, please make sure it's being done in a safe way. No one will ever ask for your private keys in any format unless you recover it from one wallet interface to another.

Step 6:

You are all set! Now you can either fund your wallet or connect your wallet directly on Bancor.

If you have have a hardware wallet, you can connect to it as well. This is done by right clicking on the MetaMask extension and then the top right circle, which will open a new tab to choose from.

IMPORTANT: No one from Bancor or AmaZix will ever send you a DM requesting funds or private information regarding your identity or information about your seed phrase and/or private key, any claim to assist with "smart wallet" or "integrations" are most likely attempts to steal your tokens. There is no Telegram Support for Bancor. Bancor support is via our knowledge base ONLY.
