Installing and setting up MetaMask
MetaMask can be downloaded on Chrome and Firefox, or on iOS and Android if you're a mobile user. For the purposes of this tutorial, we'll use the Firefox version, but the instructions will be more or less the same for every platform.
Firstly, you'll want to head over to the MetaMask Download page. From there, select whichever platform you're using, and follow the steps to install it on your device. Easy!
Next, follow along with the setup specified by the app. Go ahead and click Create a Wallet. Write down the backup seed phrase somewhere secret (preferably not on an Internet-connected device). Without this phrase, your funds can't be recovered if your device is damaged or lost. Confirm that you've written them down on the next page.
And that's it! You should now see your wallet, ready to send and receive funds.
Configuring the wallet
Let's get your metamask wallet to connect to the Zenith Chain nodes.
- Select Settings from the dropdown menu.
- On the Settings page, we want to locate the Networks menu.
- We want to click Add Network in the top-right corner to manually add the Zenith Chain one – it doesn't come packaged with MetaMask. It's important to note that there are two networks we can use here: the testnet or the mainnet. Below are the parameters to fill in for each.
