Connecting using MetaMask is one of the easiest methods to get started on Ethfinex. This is due to its ease of use, and security meaning your private key is never exposed to websites you connect with.
1. Setting up MetaMask
After installing the MetaMask extension from the official MetaMask website (www.metamask.io) you will see an orange fox icon appear in your browser’s extensions bar…
To get started, simply click this icon and follow the step by step instructions to set up a new MetaMask identity and wallet.
Once done, you will be able to easily connect to the decentralised portal, access your funds and transact safely and conveniently using MetaMask.
2. Connecting to Ethfinex Trustless
Once you have MetaMask up and running (and you feel comfortable using it!) all you need to do is head over to portal.ethfinex.com and begin connecting your wallet…
Step One: Click Start
Step Two: Connect To MetaMask
Step Three: Voila!
If you have successfully installed MetaMask, connecting it to the portal should be as easy as clicking a button!
However, if you are receiving the ‘MetaMask Locked’ ERROR visible below, please double check you have entered your password into MetaMask before attempting to connect your wallet.
