#1 Learn with 1MT
In order to use the blockchain, you need to install a mobile application (dApp). One of the most popular dApp browsers at the moment is known as Metamask.
Follow the first set of instructions to install it on the Chrome browser:
Step 1. Go to the Metamask website.
Step 2. Click “Get Chrome Extension” to install Metamask.
Step 3. Click “Add to Chrome” in the upper right.
Step 4. Click “Add Extension” to complete the installation.
You will know Metamask has been installed when you see the fox logo on the upper right hand corner of your browser.
One of the first tasks you will want to do on Metamask is to install a wallet (or “vault” as Metamask calls it) to hold your cryptocurrencies. To do this, follow the instructions below.
Step 1. Click on the Metamask logo in the upper right hand corner of your Google chrome browser.
Step 2. Read and agree to the terms and conditions. You may have to agree to 2 to 3 pages worth of terms.
Step 3. Enter a password and click “Create” to create your wallet.
Step 4. You will see a set of 12 “seed words” for your vault. Click “Save Seed Words as File” and copy the “MetaMask Seed Words” file that is downloaded to a safe place. You will need it to access your vault.
Step 5. Click “I’ve Copied It Somewhere Safe” once your seed words file has been secured. You’ll be taken into your Metamask wallet!
