So, you want to experiment with cryptocurrencies or buy your first crypto? Well, you can do that right in the browser! I would suggest using a different browser for crypto than you currently use for everything else. Why? Many of us use add-on extensions which can compromise security. I use Brave browser found at https://brave.com for crypto work and nothing else. The screenshot above is from the Brave browser running on my device.

On another note - see the test networks in the dropdown menu? These are test networks for Ethereum and you can test smart contracts and other things on these networks, before making them live (and paying for them) on the main Ethereum network. More about that later!

So, what is stopping you from getting your own wallet? Be sure to follow all of the prompts, including saving your mnemonic (list of words to recreate the account, in case you lose access)!

To the future!

About Decentralized Finance

Decentralized finance (DeFi) is a financial system built on blockchains (including Ethereum), using coded rules - smart contracts - to determine the use and release of finances on the blockchain. Some see these developing systems as alternatives to traditional financial instruments and others suggest that such blockchain-based coded smart contracts are the future of finance.
