How to create a MetaMask Wallet Effectively 

Do you have Zherpa tokens and can't access them? We'll show you how.

The first step is to create a MetaMask wallet to interact with our DAPP. Remember, the only way to access your tokens is through a decentralized wallet like MetaMask. The DAPP, on the other hand, is the place where you can do activities such as staking, farming, and trading tokens simply by connecting your web3 identity, that is, the wallet we will create in the following steps.

Now, if you want to know more about our DAPP, we highly recommend watching the launch video of $ZHT with Miguel Caballero and Miguel Arce, who explain it very well. Click here to watch it.

Step 1: Download the Mobile or Desktop Extension

  1. Visit the official MetaMask website: It's crucial to ensure you are on the correct site to avoid downloading malicious software.

  2. Choose your browser. MetaMask is available as an extension for Chrome, Firefox, Brave, and Edge. Select the browser you use and proceed with the installation.

  3. Click on "Install MetaMask". If you are using Google Chrome, after clicking, it will take you to the Chrome Web Store where you must click on 'add to chrome'.

Step 3: Account backup

  1. Once you've created your password, click on the "Protect my wallet" button.

  2. Reveal your key and write down your recovery phrase. MetaMask will provide you with a 12-word recovery phrase. It is vital that you write it on paper and keep it in a safe place. This phrase will allow you to recover your wallet and access your funds from any device if you lose access to your device.

  3. Verify your recovery phrase. To ensure you have noted it correctly, MetaMask will ask you to enter some of the words from the phrase.

  4. Congratulations, you have created your wallet and should see this screen:

Security Tips 

  • Never share your recovery phrase. If someone gains access to it, they could steal your funds.
  • Keep your software up-to-date. This includes the MetaMask extension and your browser.
  • Consider using a hardware wallet. For added security, you can connect a hardware wallet to your MetaMask wallet.
