How to Create a Lightstreams Wallet with MetaMask
The following guide will show you how to generate a Lightstreams digital wallet using MetaMask. You can use this wallet to receive and sent PHT tokens.
MetaMask is a tool for sending and receiving Ethereum compatible tokens. Since Lightstreams is Ethereum-compatible we can configure MetaMask to connect to Lightstreams.
PHT is the native token to the Lightstreams network as ETH is the native token to the Ethereum network. PHT is not an ERC-20 token or similar.
