Setup MetaMask For Ether-1

Installing MetaMask

To use MetaMask with ETHO you can install a browser extension from the appropriate app store for your particular browser. For this example, we will be using the chrome version. You can find the chrome application here:

Chrome App Store - MetaMask

After Installing the MetaMask browser extension, you will need to go through the following setup process:

  1. When prompted, press continue.

  2. Create a strong password to use with MetaMask. (You can also import an existing wallet with the seed phrase, to restore an existing account.)

  3. After creating a password, you will be shown your account image, and then you will be prompted to accept the MetaMask Terms & Conditions along with a privacy notice and a statement on phishing.

  4. Following acceptance of all the various terms, you will be prompted to backup your recovery seed. The page includes information on the best practices to follow when backing up the recovery seed.

  5. You will then need to confirm the backup phrase:

  6. You have now successfully installed MetaMask. You will now need to change it from Ethereum to Ether-1:

    Add Ether-1 network and make sure you connect to it in the future when dealing with Ether-1

Once the custom RPC value is put in above, you will see the ETHO balance of your imported account

Importing Existing Wallet to MetaMask

This optional section of the guide details how you can import an existing wallet into MetaMask. These steps are applicable to both stock MetaMask and the Ether-1 version.

  1. From the MetaMask application, select the purple circle in the upper right hand corner. Then select 'import wallet', as shown in the screenshot below:

  2. Now, depending on the format which your existing wallet is in, you have the choice to pick between a JSON file and a private key string:

  3. You can paste the private key into the field, or upload the JSON file using the file explorer.

Imported accounts will not be associated with your originally created MetaMask account seed-phrase. Learn more about imported accounts here.
