Introduction

Most crypto users only have wallets associated to an exchange they trade on. This gives them a wrong impression of how blockchain addresses work because it just looks much like a traditional email/password log.

Metamask is a wallet that exists solely on your computer and gives you full control of your funds. Metamask is installed on your browser like any regular plugin. Once it’s installed, it allows users to store cryptocurrency asset. Initially, Metamask only supported the Ethereum network, but today, Metamask supports many networks including Binance Smart Chain, Huobi Eco Chain, Avalance , Polygon, and many more.

The base function of Metamask is to store, receive, send, crypto assets on supported networks. However, with the emergence of Dapps, Metamask has become an important gateway to access these Dapps.
