Sending Ethereum to Metamask

Now that you have some ETH, let's make sure you have MetaMask. Think of MetaMask like a key vault, secure login and token wallet all in one that will help you interact with the Ethereum blockchain through a browser extension.

  1. Go to and download MetaMask
  2. Make sure to write your 12 word seed phrase down in a secure place
  3. Identify your wallet address (e.g. 0x7a2...) and copy to clipboard using the icon you'll find next to the Account name.
  4. Go back to (or any exchange you used to buy ETH) and send your Ethereum to your MetaMask Wallet address you identified in Step 3. Be sure to paste the exact address you just copied.
