How to Install Metamask (For Beginners)

By amberbyers | Crypto Byers | 9 Apr 2022


Now that we know some of the NFT marketplaces available, let’s talk about how to buy, sell, and store your NFTs. Most marketplaces are compatible with MetaMask which is a crypto wallet, primarily supporting Ethereum-based tokens, that can be downloaded as a browser extension (it’s currently only available on Chrome, Firefox, Brave, and Edge). You need a crypto wallet to store NFTs and manage transactions, so once you’ve identified the marketplace you would like to sell on, setting up a MetaMask wallet is the next step. Below are some steps to get you started.

Step 1 - Go to the MetaMask website on a compatible internet browser.

Step 2 - Go to the download page and let the MetaMask extension download.

Step 3 - Once you’ve downloaded MetaMask, click on the Get Started prompt to create a wallet.

Note: Once you have the wallet created, be sure to save the Seed Phrase somewhere safe that you are sure you will remember. Otherwise, if you forget the password you may not get access back.

Now that MetaMask is installed to your favorite browser, you should be all set to connect that wallet to the NFT marketplace of your choice!
