Setting Up a Wallet

To interact with zkMarkets, you'll need a Web3 wallet. Here's a guide to install our prefered wallet - Metamask:

This guide is for a PC using Chrome. On Android or IOs you need to install the Metamask app first and then the steps should be the same.

Step 1. Install MetaMask

  1. Get a supported browser.*

  2. Click “Install MetaMask for Chrome”. You will be directed to the Chrome Web Store.

  3. Click the “Add to Browser*” button or the “Get” button if using Edge.

  4. On the pop up, click “Add extension” and wait till it is installed.

Once you install MetaMask for chrome it should automatically open. If not, simply click the addons (jigsaw) icon in the top-right of the screen and you will find MetaMask there. Hit the pin icon to make it easily accessible.

*The instructions here are for chrome but are similar for other browsers.

Step 2. Create a new wallet (keep your recovery phrase safe)

  1. Open MetaMask.

  2. Agree to the Terms of use.

  3. Select Create a new wallet.

  4. Click on “I agree” if you want to send anonymized click and pageview events to MetaMask or “No Thanks” if you don’t.

  5. Create a local password for the device you are using.

  6. Secure your wallet by writing down your Secret Recovery Phrase (seed phrase) somewhere safe.

  7. Confirm your Secret Recovery Phrase.

Step 3. Buy ETH or any other supported tokens.
