Install MetaMask to fully enjoy dada.nyc

[Versión en español].

As you may have heard, we recently launched our first collection of rare digital art for sale on the Ethereum blockchain. Everyone on DADA, from artists to collectors, should install MetaMask in order to buy and collect art, or to get payment from sales, if you are an artist. MetaMask is a secure wallet where you keep the Ether cryptocurrency to be able to purchase art from DADA. If you are an artist, you will be able to transfer the proceeds from your sales to your MetaMask wallet.

MetaMask makes it easy to buy stuff from Ethereum-supported decentralized applications, also known as dApps. It allows you to run them right in your browser.

It’s quite simple.

Get the MetaMask extension for Chrome or Firefox at Chrome Extensions. Once you install it, it will appear in your browser with a small icon of a fox.

Follow the instructions.

IMPORTANT: set up a strong password. Keep this password and the seed phrase MetaMask will give you in a safe place. Neither MetaMask nor DADA hold your keys for you. We cannot access accounts, recover keys, reset passwords, nor reverse transactions. Protect your keys & always check that you are on correct URL. You are responsible for the security of your personal digital wallet.

Once you are set, you will need some Ether in your digital wallet. You can purchase Ether from an exchange such as Coinbase. From there you can transfer ETH to your MetaMask wallet, and you are ready to buy art.

Here’s a step by step guide to install MetaMask.

And here’s a guide on how to purchase Ether through MetaMask and Coinbase.
