In this guide, we will show you how to easily create an NFT wallet with MetaMask, one of the most popular and reliable wallets for purchasing NFTs and Crypto Art, or how to connect your wallets via WalletConnect.

MetaMask is a browser extension or smartphone app that functions as a cryptocurrency wallet and allows access to decentralized applications (dApps) based on Ethereum and other compatible blockchains such as Polygon.

WalletConnect is a protocol that allows you to connect your wallet to various decentralized applications (dApps) without having to enter your private keys or passwords. In this way, you can interact with dApps securely and easily, using your smartphone or tablet as an authentication device.

Guide to creating an NFT wallet with MetaMask

1. Download the MetaMask extension

To get started, visit the official download page on Metamask.io and select your browser. You will be redirected to the Chrome web store or Firefox add-on site. Click on the button to add the extension to your browser. Make sure you download the extension only from the official site or web store of your browser.

2. Create your account

After installing the extension, you will need to create your account. MetaMask will ask you to set a password to protect your account. This password cannot be recovered in any way so please keep it safe. Make sure you use a strong password and don’t use the same password you use for other online accounts.

3. Add an existing wallet or create a new wallet

Once your account is created, you can choose whether to add an existing wallet or create a new wallet. If you need to import an existing wallet, just enter the CID, i.e. a sequence of 12 Seed Phrases, i.e. keywords to be noted when creating the wallet because they will be used to install it on another device.

If you need to create a new wallet you will have to click on "Create new wallet", choose an access password and save the 12 recovery words. These words are very important because they will allow you to restore your account if your device is lost or stolen. Make sure you write them down and keep them in a safe place.

4. Find your wallet address

Finally, to find your wallet address, click on the 3 dots on the right side of your account and click on "Copy address to clipboard". Now your Wallet is ready to be used!

By following these simple steps, you can easily create an NFT wallet with MetaMask and start exploring the world of NFTs and Crypto Art.
