Connecting your Wallet:

In order to participate as a creator, curator or collector on the platform, you must connect to a browser extension called MetaMask. MetaMask is an electronic wallet which allows you to purchase, store, and engage in transactions using the native Ethereum cryptocurrency ETH and other Ethereum-based cryptocurrencies.

On the startpage select ‘login’ then ‘wallet connect’ and choose ‘MetaMask’ (install the browser-plug-in or download the metamask app on your phone). For instructions on how to set up your wallet, go to the MetaMask website.
