MetaMask Installation & Set up Web3 RPC URL

To monitor the flow of funds in your network account, it is essential to set up Shibarium's URL on Metamask, whether you're using the testnet or mainnet. The use of MetaMask is a prerequisite for this process. MetaMask can be used on both mobile devices and web browsers for interacting with the Ethereum blockchain. By utilizing the browser-based Ethereum DApp, users can execute Ethereum apps directly within their browser. Communication between Infura and the Ethereum Ledger is enabled, while mnemonic private key encoding is non-custodial and HD private key storage is performed locally on the user's browser storage. To set up Metamask, please refer to the guide.

How to create a MetaMask Wallet?

If you're interested in creating a cryptocurrency wallet, installing the MetaMask extension on your browser is a good place to start. Once installed, MetaMask injects a global API into websites visited by users, available at window.ethereum (or window.web3.currentProvider for legacy purposes). Websites can use this API to request user logins, fetch data from blockchains that the user has a connection to, and recommend the user to sign messages and transactions. This API can also be used to detect the user of a web3 browser.
Step 1. Get MetaMask for your browser.
Metamask is available for Chrome, Firefox, Brave, and Opera.

    Open https://metamask.io or search for “Metamask extension” using your favorite search engine.

Security tips: Write this phrase on a piece of paper and store in a secure location. If you want even more security, write it down on multiple pieces of paper and store each in 2–3 different locations. Memorize this phrase.
  1. 1.
    Verify your secret phrase by selecting the previously generated phrase. When done, click Confirm.
By “solving this puzzle” you are confirming that you know your secret phrase.
Congratulations! You have successfully created your MetaMask account. A new Ethereum wallet address was automatically generated for you.
