There are various Ethereum wallets out there, from hardware to software, but we all know that MetaMask is one of the best options. It’s so easy to use and has a great interface. However, as good as this wallet is, it doesn’t provide the necessary features that an authentic Ethereum wallet must-have.
MetaMask has evolved with Avalanche – a browser extension that allows you to easily and securely access your Ethereum wallets via MetaMask. It enables instant & private transactions using MetaMask while getting rid of any chance of being hacked.
It’s not a big deal to download and install Avalanche for free on your browser, as it only takes about 5 minutes. It’s very simple to use and similar to MetaMask, so you don’t have to go through any extra trouble to get it up and to run. Like the original version, you can easily receive ETH when you want without any problems.
While MetaMask is easy to use and has a great interface, it doesn’t have the necessary features required by an authentic Ethereum wallet. MetaMask was developed with Avalanche, a browser extension that allows you to safely use your Ether wallets through the existing interface on MetaMask. It enables quick & private transactions via the already-established network of MetaMask while keeping you safe from any chance of getting hacked.
Step 1: Download MetaMask for Free
MetaMask is available as a browser extension only, so the first thing you need to do is download it on your chosen browser. Go to the MetaMask site on your browser and click the “Get Chrome Extension” button. Do the same thing with all of your browsers, as you might want to use this feature in all of them.
Step 2: Create MetaMask Account & Fund It
In order to use Avalanche, you need an active Ethereum account that’s already set up in your preferred wallet. A good option is MetaMask itself, which has a Google Chrome extension that works pretty well with its other versions.
Step 3: Install Avalanche
If you have a Google Chrome browser, you can easily install the extension on it. Go to the Avalanche site and click the green “+” button in the top-right corner of your Chrome window.
How to Use MetaMask to set up an Avalanche network?
Avalanche is an ERC-20 token with a unique Proof of Work (PoW) algorithm that allows for decentralized control, anonymity, and independence from centralized mining power. You can also mine this coin without being too much at risk of getting attacked by hackers or DDoS attacks since the network requires its users to get miner’s fees for transactions in order to send tokens out of their wallet, which will help prevent spamming the network with fake transactions.
- First, you will need to run an Ethereum client in a separate browser window to create a new account on the network.
- Make sure you have MetaMask running in your main browser window and the Ethereum wallet address of your choice already copied from step one (or from MetaMask’s “send Ether & Tokens” page).
- Now head over to Avalanche, copy your account address from the username field above (which should be placed on the main MetaMask page), and paste it into the “Account Address” field under Avalanche’s “New Account” section. Click “Next.”
- Now, you will need to set the amount of ETH you want the new account on Avalanche to contain and provide a password to access it. After that, click “New Account” and click “Connect.”
MetaMask should now give you the green light and show your account address if everything is in order. Click on the main MetaMask page again to send some ETH over.

The introduction of Waves lite client two weeks ago caused the price of AVX tokens to increase by over 800%. The initial market response was driven by traders holding AVX for possible liquidity gains. It seems that there is a reasonable chance these tokens will be listed on other exchanges shortly. However, it was not clear whether the price would continue to increase or not. The Avalanche Network team has done a great job managing this project and integrating all of the necessary components needed to move forward with their ambitious roadmap. Ultimately, it will be up to markets to decide how quickly AVX tokens are listed on other exchanges.
AVX tokens can be purchased on the KuCoin exchange page. It might also be possible to acquire them from the Waves DEX, but this is not yet confirmed. AVX tokens can be stored in MetaMask, a browser-based wallet that supports Ethereum and all ERC-20 tokens.
