If you’re new to the world of blockchain gaming or DApp gaming, you should know that you’ll need a wallet to access decentralized games and store your earnings and rewards.
You’ll need a wallet that corresponds to the blockchain platform the DApp games are built on. For example, if you want to play a game built on top of the TRON blockchain, you need to create a wallet that supports TRON.
This article is dedicated to providing a step-by-step process on how to create a Metamask wallet, which can be used to run Ethereum DApp games.
STEP 1: Go to metamask.io and get the extension Google Chrome. Metamask has extension options for other browsers such as Firefox, Opera, and Brave.
STEP 2: After being redirected to the Chrome Web Store, click the Add to Chrome button then Add Extension.
STEP 3: Click Get Started once you end up in another tab. After that, you’ll be given two options: Import Wallet or Create a Wallet. If you’re a beginner, click Create a Wallet but if not, you can simply click Import Wallet.
STEP 4: Metamask will ask you if it could gather use your data to improve its services. It’s up to you if you want to agree or not.
STEP 6: Metamask will give you a secret backup phrase, will help you backup and restore your account if you wish to change devices. Anyone with this phrase can access your wallet and take your Ether, so make sure to copy and secure it somewhere where no one else will be able to see it.
STEP 7: To confirm that you have copied your secret backup phrase, Metamask will ask you to select the words of your phrase in order.
AND THERE YOU HAVE IT! You have successfully created your own Metamask wallet. You can play as many Ethereum DApp games as you want with this wallet.
If you already have a Metamask wallet, you can simply import it to the browser that you’re currently using by typing your secret backup phrase in order and creating a new password.
