How To Use an Avalanche Wallet?

The crypto market is rapidly developing; there have been many additions to the crypto realm, such as NFTs, wallet services, developing exchanges, and so on. In this post, we will apprise you of the Avalanche Wallet; we will talk about how to create an ‘Avalanche Wallet’ and use the Avalanche Wallet with Metamask to get started with De-Fi in the avalanche ecosystem. 

How to Create a new Avalanche Wallet?

In just a few steps, you can build an Avalanche Wallet that is both simple and safe. Crypto wallets are non-custodial, which means you have complete control over your private keys that manage your money and highlight your ownership. 

The key question then is: how to create an Avalanche Wallet? The answer: follow these steps:

Step 1: Go to Avalanche Wallet. 

Step 2: Select ‘create a new wallet’, 

Step 3: A next page will show up: in there select ‘Generate a new phrase to set up your Avalanche Wallet’. 

If this is your first time creating a crypto wallet, we cannot emphasise enough how important it is to save and protect these words; they are the combination to all of your future gains, so write them down and keep them extremely safe.

Finally, Step 4: After you have completed writing down your key phrase and confirmed that your phrase is correct in their system, then you will be able to access your Avalanche wallet.

Once you access your Avalanche wallet, the next question is how to check your AVAX balance?

Once in your Avalanche Wallet, at the top of the balance tab, you’ll find your Avax balance, which should be zero for now. You will also see a breakdown of available “X, P, and C”, which reflect the various chains of slash networks that the avalanche is made up of.

Three Chains and its Importance

The Avalanche network has three blockchains: the Exchange Chain (X-Chain), the Contract Chain (C-Chain), and the Platform Chain (P-Chain). It is important to note that only the C-Chain is compatible with MetaMask, hence you may only utilise the C-Chain to transfer AVAX to your MetaMask wallet. Be aware! If you choose the incorrect chain, you may end up losing your tokens.

Further, the ‘X’ chain is the transaction chain; it is extremely quick and inexpensive in comparison to Ethereum. The ‘P’ chain is the platform chain that is utilised for staking and validation. The ‘C’ chain is the contract chain that will allow you to interact with all of the decentralised applications (dApps) that launch on the avalanche ecosystem.

How to deposit Avax in your Avalanche Wallet?

Want to deposit some Avax into your new wallet?. This can be done in few simple steps using Zebpay

i) After you’ve signed up into Zebpay and purchased some Avax, go to the Exchange tab and select Send.

ii) Choose an existing address from the list, or click the ‘+’ icon in the bottom right corner to add a new address.

iii) For new addresses, scan or paste the address QR code, enter a name for the token address, and then hit Save.

 You may now select how much money you want to send; we recommend that you perform a test run with a little amount first to confirm that everything works as planned. The transfer should be completed fast, and funds will land up in your Avalanche Wallet shortly. 

v) The next step is to get Avax on the ‘C’ chain. In the wallet tab, on the left-hand side, pick ‘cross-chain.’ Ensure that the ‘source chain’ is the ‘X’ chain and the ‘destination chain’ is the ‘C’ chain.

vi) Enter the amount you want to transfer, then click ‘confirm’ and then ‘transfer.’ The screen should confirm that you have successfully transferred between chains within a few seconds.

Finally, you’re almost there.  To connect with the Avalanche blockchain and dApps, all you need is a compatible crypto wallet, such as MetaMask. However, before you can utilise Avalanche tokens on MetaMask, you must first add the Avalanche network to your wallet.

How To Use Metamask for Avalanche blockchain: A primer

Metamask is a crypto wallet and gateway to blockchain apps. It is an important element in generating user experience and infrastructure that connects the traditional web 2 with the upcoming web 3. It is accessible via Chrome, iOS, and Android.

To use Metamask for Avalanche blockchain you  need to open MetaMask and sign in and perform the following operations: 

Select Network from the drop-down menu -> Choose Custom RPC -> Network Name >  New RPC URL > ChainID >  Symbol > Explorer.

Further, you can send AVAX to Your MetaMask connected to Avalanche. This can be done thus:

> Sign in to your Avalanche Wallet > Click “Cross-Chain” on the left-hand side > Select “C Chain (Contract)” as the destination chain > Enter the amount you want to transfer, and then click confirm > Now> Select “C Contract” as the Source Chain > Enter your MetaMask wallet address by inserting it into the “To Address” section on your Avalanche wallet > Confirm and complete the transaction.

Kudos! AVAX is now in your MetaMask wallet, and you may begin using Avalanche with MetaMask right away.
