How to get free Lizard coins into your Metamask

Put some Lizard Coin into your Metamask for free

Now that you have Metamask installed, it’s time to learn how to accept Altcoins and hold them there. We created Lizard Coin for fun, which has no monetary value but makes for a really good example to teach you the ropes.

It’s important you understand two concepts: The “network” vs “token” or “asset”. Metamask can be configured to support a large variety of both.

Network refers to the blockchain a specific token is based on. You have likely heard of Ethereum - it has its own network and many tokens build on top of that.

Tokens are that asset on top of the network. For example, Lizard Coin is a token operating on the Avalance network. So you need to add the network to Metamask first, then the token.

Go to Twitter.com/lizard_coin - the first tweet has detailed instructions. Don’t worry if they look technical right now, once you’ve mastered those, you are ready for anything.

And don’t forget to DM our lizard coin twitter with your wallet address so we can give you those sweet coins for free.
