Bridge of Souls
The first thing our players ask is…
How will I be able to buy cards from the Cryptoz Store ?
If you are new to Ethereum, the process may seem like the strangest thing you’ve done on the web. This walk-through will help you go through the steps required to get set up. You will need to bridge from the web to the Ethereum global blockchain network. All of your Cryptoz cards and CXP tokens are stored on the blockchain in your personal wallet. Once you acquire a card, you have complete ownership over it and it will live in your Ethereum wallet. So let’s get started!
How to set up your Ethereum wallet
The preferred browser to use with Ethereum and Metamask, is Google Chrome. If you do not already have Google Chrome installed on your computer, you can download it here.
The simplest way to get started on Ethereum is to use the Metamask browser extension. To install this extension, follow the steps below:
- Open the Chrome Web Store.
- Find and select the extension you want.
- Click Add to Chrome.
- For some extensions, you’ll see a box that lists the data that the extension will be able to access.
- Click Add extension to grant the extension access to your data and install the extension.
To use the extension, click the icon to the right of the address bar in Chrome.
Note: If you’re installing an extension at work or school, some extensions might be blocked. For more information, contact your administrator.
Once installed, the Metamask extension will appear as a little foxhead in your browser address bar.
Click the little fox head and Metamask will appear.
Enter a memorable password to access your Ethereum wallets, this will protect your wallet when you want to lock it.
CRITICAL: You will be prompted to store a series of seed words that will let you restore access to your wallet if you decide to change browsers, or computers or ever forget your password.
Your Ethereum wallet is like your real world wallet. If you lose it, you lose everything in it…. forever….with no chance of finding it or having it returned to you.
This includes all of contents of your wallet: your Ether tokens, CXP tokens, and your Cryptoz Cards. Write your “unlock” seed words down and keep them safe; put them in a safety deposit box; save a copy at someone else’s house (someone you trust). Whatever it takes, do not lose them.
You have just created your new Ethereum wallet
The default name will be Account 1, you can change the name for this account as anything you like, Metamask will let you create many Ethereum accounts.
Limited Edition Cryptoz cards will be sold in the CryptStore for Ether. Depositing Ether into your wallet is as simple as clicking the BUY button.
Click “Continue to Coinbase”. Your browser will redirect to a purchase page. Follow the directions on this page to select a deposit amount and pay with your credit card.
