How to Install and Set-Up a MetaMask Wallet In Your Internet Browser / Mobile Device

To participate in 3iQ’s Metaverse initiatives, an Ethereum-based Web 3.0 ready wallet will be required. While the following instructions are to create a MetaMask wallet, other Web 3.0 ready wallets such as Coinbase Wallet are also supported. Please follow the below instructions and follow the prompts on MetaMask carefully.

 

STEP 1
Proceed to https://metamask.io/ and click “download” for Google Chrome, Firefox, Brave, iOS, or Android.
Install MetaMask on your device and browser of choice:

STEP 2
If this is your first time creating a wallet, click the “Create a Wallet” button.

If this is not your first time creating a wallet, and you have a seed phrase already, please click “Import Wallet” button.

Click “I Agree” button to allow data to be collected to help improve MetaMask.

STEP 3
Create a password for your wallet. A new password needs to be created if your browser is uninstalled or if you change browsers and re-import the seed phrase.

STEP 4
Click on the dark area which says “Click here to reveal secret words” to get your secret phrase.
Important: *YOU SHOULD WRITE DOWN YOUR SECRET BACKUP PHRASE ON PAPER AND STORE IT IN A SECURE LOCATION*.

Source: MetaMask

Click the buttons respective to the order of the words in your secret backup phrase. In other words, complete the phrase by using the buttons on the screen. If done correctly, the “Confirm” button should turn blue.

Click the “Confirm” button. Please follow the tips mentioned.
Success! You now have a non-custodial Ethereum wallet for 3iQ’s Metaverse Initiatives!

Note: If you lose your password, you can import the same wallet back by using the Seed Phrase written down in the previous step. You can import the seed phrase into multiple devices, and use them at the same time.

Note: NEVER give out your seed phrase, or type the seed phrase on a computer or mobile device. This is the same as leaving a digital audit trail which could result in exploitation and the loss of your wallet’s assets.

Click the “Puzzle piece” at the top right of your internet browser.
Click the “Pin button” so it goes blue beside MetaMask.
