Available as a browser extension and as a mobile app, MetaMask equips you with a key vault, a secure token wallet - everything you need to store the Axion token or other assets such as Ethereum or wrapped Bitcoin.
Currently, MetaMask is the only wallet our staking platform supports, so it's vital that you have a MetaMask wallet to store Axion and interact with our Staking Platform.
How to install MetaMask
Simply head to the official website metamask.io to download their browser extension or mobile app. Be careful, there are fake websites out there with hacked versions of MetaMask which will attempt to steal your funds. Please only download from the official website, Metamask.io.
If using Chrome or Brave browser, click the puzzle-shaped extensions button and then pin MetaMask, so it always stays on the toolbar for easy access.
