MetaMask, crypto-wallets, secret phrases, decentralised applications… For many, this jargon feels overwhelming at first, and getting hands-on feels like taking a big leap. The reality is; none of this is actually so complicated, but the benefits one can gain from understanding how to use these tools are huge. Education is at the core of the autonomies project, so we’re happy to break down for you how to use some of these tools.
To use autonomies.io, users need to install and use the MetaMask browser extension. Why you might ask? Because MetaMask allows users to interact with decentralised applications by creating, signing transactions and sending funds around.
Through MetaMask and its integrated services, users can also directly top up their wallet with USDC and MATIC with a bank account or a credit card.
Once your address is credited with Polygon USDC (see other tutorial), you can now start collecting exclusive audio-files on the autonomies marketplace!
