Step 1: Install MetaMask extension in your browser (https://metamask.io/). Supported browsers are Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Brave. This guide will use Google Chrome.
Step 2: Click on the button “Get Started”.
Step 3: Click on the button “Create a Wallet” and decide whether you want MetaMask to gather your user data.
Step 5: Save your secret backup phrase and keep it somewhere safe. These 12 words are the only way to restore your MetaMask account. You will also need them to complete your wallet creation at the next step.
Step 6: Your public wallet address is located in your “Account Details” area. To receive PHT tokens you will need to give the public address of your wallet to someone who will send you tokens. Click on the wallet address as showed. Paste this address in a message to the person sending you the PTH tokens.
Step 8: We recommend to change the default name of the “Account 1” so you can remember it is your Lightstreams Photons Wallet. Click on "Details" for Account 1.
Edit account name to easily remember it is your Lightstreams Photons Wallet.
