Creating a Crypto Wallet with MetaMask

MetaMask is an extension to the chrome and brave browsers. With a MetaMask wallet you can buy, store, send and swap tokens. It also provides a simple and secure way to connect to blockchain-based applications.

The following video does an excellent job introducing Metamask. It  was made by the creators of this tool and can also be found on their  home page metamask.io or on YouTube.

You can create a wallet either through the browser extension or via their mobile app (which can be synced between browser and mobile). A couple things to pay close attention to if this is your 1st time creating a digital wallet 1. Choose a strong password and store it in a safe location 2. MetaMask uses a seed phrase which if you lose your password is the only way to restore your account. Write down and store your seed phrase in a safe location, and never share your password, seed phrase, or private key.
