In order to purchase a Particle, you need to have a Metamask wallet. This wallet will be used to pay for the particles you purchase, as well as be the place where you will store the particles you’ve purchased.
MetaMask is a cryptocurrency wallet used to interact with Ethereum and other EVM blockchains, including Avalanche (the chain where Particle NFTs are minted on).
Metamask allows users to access their wallets through a browser extension or mobile app, which can then be used to interact with decentralised applications such as Particle.
Think of Metamask like you would your PayPal account, only it is funded only by crypto.
Metamask works as an extension of your Chrome browser. Please make sure to download Google’s Chrome browser for it to work. Metamask also has an iOS app you can download on the App Store.
You can use this tutorial for a step by step guide on how to set up your wallet. We recommend you do so on a laptop or desktop computer using the Chrome browser rather than using the Android or iOS app.
