How Do You Get a Harmony wallet?
1. Installing and setting up MetaMask
If you’re a mobile user, MetaMask can be downloaded on Chrome, Firefox on iOS and Android. For the purposes of this course, we’ll use the Firefox version, but the instructions will be same for each platform.
First of all, go to the MetaMask Download page. From there, select whichever platform you’re using, and follow the steps to install it on your device. It’s easy!
Next, follow along with the setup specified by the app. Go ahead and click Create a Wallet.
Write down the Secret Recovery Phrase somewhere secretly(preferably not on an Internet-connected device). Without this phrase, your funds can’t be recovered if your device is damaged or lost. Confirm that you’ve written them down on the next page. And that’s it! You should now see your wallet, ready to send and receive funds.
The freshly-initialized MetaMask wallet.
2. Configuring the wallet
You might notice straight away that we’re still dealing with an Ethereum wallet. At best, this won’t work with Harmony Mainnet Apps. At worst, you could lose funds by sending them to addresses you can’t actually use. Let’s change that. We want to access the Settings to point the wallet towards Harmony Mainnet nodes.
Select Settings from the drop-down menu.
On the Settings page, we want to locate the Networks menu.
The networks menu we want to click Add Network in the top-right corner.
To manually add the Harmony Mainnet one–it doesn’t come packaged with MetaMask. It’s important to note that there are two networks we can use here: the test net or the main net. Below are the parameters to fill in for each.
