How to invest the decentralized automated strategies?
Step1: Creating your wallet

Creating an Ethereum Wallet using MetaMask

To create an Ethereum wallet using MetaMask, follow these steps:
  1. 1.
    Install MetaMask: Visit the MetaMask website at metamask.io and install the MetaMask extension compatible with your web browser.
  2. 2.
    Set up a Wallet: Launch MetaMask after installation and click on the "Create a Wallet" option.
  3. 3.
    Choose a Strong Password: Set a secure password for your wallet and confirm it.
  4. 4.
    Backup Phrase: MetaMask will generate a secret backup phrase consisting of 12 words. Write down this phrase and keep it in a safe place.
  5. 5.
    Confirm Backup Phrase: Verify your backup phrase by selecting the words in the correct order as prompted by MetaMask.
  6. 6.
    Wallet Creation Complete: Once you've confirmed the backup phrase, your MetaMask wallet will be created. You can now access and manage your Ethereum funds.
  7. 7.
    Connect to the Ethereum Network: By default, MetaMask connects to the Ethereum Mainnet. You can switch to other Ethereum networks like the Polygon or Optimism by clicking on the network selection dropdown in the MetaMask interface.
  8. 8.
    Account Address: Your Ethereum wallet address will be displayed in the MetaMask interface. This address serves as your unique identifier on the Ethereum network for sending and receiving ETH and other Ethereum-based tokens.
Remember to keep your MetaMask password secure and never share it with anyone. It is crucial to regularly back up your secret backup phrase and store it in a safe and offline location. With your MetaMask wallet, you can now interact with various Ethereum-based decentralized applications (DApps) and manage your digital assets securely.
