    A Complete Guide to Getting Eth and a Wallet With Metamask Cryptocurrencies (or “crypto”) are digital currencies that are not controlled by anyone governing body, like a government or a bank. Crypto is ushering in a new era of the internet that’s decentralized, community-driven, and community-owned. 

     

    This emerging technology will plug you into a revolutionary global community—and it all starts with setting up your MetaMask Wallet. Once you've received an invitation to become a creator on Foundation, you’ll need to set up your wallet and purchase ETH to access the site and start minting NFTs. Note that even if you have a wallet and create an account on Foundation, this does not necessarily mean that you are a creator and have access to start minting NFTs. After your wallet is set up, then you can click on the invitation link you were sent, to connect to Foundation and set up your creator profile. First, here are a couple of important terms:

    ETH is the cryptocurrency used for all transactions on the Ethereum network, and it’s the currency we use on Foundation. All of the NFTs on our platform can be purchased with ETH. Creators get paid in it, too. • MetaMask is a digital wallet that is specific to Ethereum. There are other wallets available, but Foundation uses MetaMask. It’s connected to your web browser as an extension where you can hold and spend ETH. You’ll need to connect your wallet to Foundation in order to participate in the marketplace. For creators, having your own wallet—with ETH in it—allows you to mint your digital art as NFTs. (Are you new to NFTs? Read our blog post about the new technology.)

    When you sell artwork on Foundation, revenue from that sale will go directly into your MetaMask Wallet. This is all starting to make sense. So how do I get ETH? 

    Sign up for Coinbase, a secure platform that makes it easy to buy, sell, and store cryptocurrency. Note: The process for verification on Coinbase can take up to 14 days. • Head to www.coinbase.com and click “Get Started” to set up your account. • Set up your account, including verifying your identity. • Connect a debit card or bank account so that you can get verified and purchase ETH. Get ETH—the cryptocurrency used for all transactions on Ethereum—on Coinbase.

     

    Once you’ve set up an account and your debit card or bank account have been verified, you can purchase ETH on Coinbase. (When you connect a debit card, you can buy ETH immediately. If you connect a bank account, you can also purchase ETH immediately but it can take up to 15 days for the balance to appear in your account.) • Click “Buy / Sell,” and select “Ethereum.” • We recommend purchasing a small amount of ETH to start. You'll need ETH in your wallet to pay for the transaction costs so you can mint an NFT. • Click “Preview Buy” to confirm your order and then select “Buy Now” to complete the purchase of ETH. You now own ETH. Coinbase will notify you when it’s available to send to your wallet, which can take between 2-15 days
