Tutorial: Download MetaMask and export your SaTT ERC20 wallet

Introduction

MetaMask is an Ethereum wallet allowing you to manage your Ether (ETH) but also all the tokens running on the Ethereum blockchain, such as ERC20 tokens like SaTT. 

Besides being a wallet, MetaMask is also an Ethereum browser that gives you the ability to interact with decentralized applications (dApp) from your internet browser. 

It allows: 

  • websites to retrieve data from the blockchain 
  • its users to manage their portfolios in a secure manner.

MetaMask also has an anti-phishing tool as well as a regularly updated list of fraudulent websites.

Your private key remains in MetaMask.

You can use the MetaMask extension with the following browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Brave, or Edge.

In order to provide you with a simpler and more intuitive experience, we have set up a series of explanatory tutorials for the different platforms on which the SaTT is listed, including some tools.

You will also find a lexicon which will allow you to better understand certain technical terms.

  1. 8 to 18 characters.
  2. Include numbers.
  3. Include lowercase and uppercase.
  4. Include special characters.
  5. Do not include an identifier
