Why you should know Metamask

How you can hold most Tokens in a single wallet and much more

Metamask is a browser extension and mobile app that acts as a wallet for Tokens that are based on Ethereum or compatible protocols. In plain English, that means you can accept, hold, and send almost everything in it.

But what’s even cooler? Many websites, for example Uniswap, directly integrate with it, so as soon as you want to, say, swap a Token, a dialog pops up to connect Metamask. No need to deal with weird addresses.

Set it by going to and following the instructions. Make sure you print out your recovery phrase and put it in a safe place - don’t be one of those people who lost their crypto passwords.

If you want to add an altcoin, simply Google its name and metamask and you’ll likely find easy descriptions of how to add support.

Then you could send yourself tokens from your Coinbase account for example, so the wallet is funded. And then the crypto world is your oyster!

And next time we’ll fund your Metamask with some of our own free Lizard Coin, so you learn the basics.
