Getting started

First of all if this is your first APE into the world of crypto welcome! Before you YETH all your coins at the market we are going to take you through a few steps so that your attempt to make your wife's boyfriend jealous is successful and you can enjoy copious amounts of coins of your own.

To get started on AVAX you are going to need a few tools and links to get you started.

  1. Configure your RPC settings for MetaMask so you can connect to the AVAX network
  2. Setup a seed with the AVAX Web Wallet
  3. Add the tokens you want to hold so MetaMask is ready and you're able to see the coins' balances.

MetaMask RPC Settings for Avalanche


Often when you end up on a new chain you are missing the addresses for the additional tokens that you hold in your wallet. This can lead to confusion and thinking that you are missing coins. After you do your RPC additions to get the chain interacting with your meta mask you also need to add your asset by its address on the new chain. The reason for this is DeFI is so new that MetaMask has yet to release a version that contains chains other then Ethereum. You can add any of the addresses below as custom tokens inside your MetaMask on the Avalanche Network. Since Ethereum was the original DeFI chain it is already built into MetaMask and doesn't require an addition to work. One thing you might be missing though inside your MM is the ZERO token so why don't we try and add it. Go to assests -> Add token -> Custom Token and input the Zero address listed below. It should find the Symbol after you paste it in there and compare it against the table below. Keep in mind here that each smart contract that is deployed has a contract address and each ARC20 token that you are adding to your wallet needs to be identified by it's original smart contract address to be genuine.


Scammers are out there minting tokens that have the same names and same supply but only one will have the valid contract address.
