Modified on: 2018-08-29 10:19:59 +0200


This article will show you how to install MetaMask® and BEA tokens.


Step 1: Find and download the plug-in

To install the MetaMask browser extension visit https://metamask.io/ and click "Get Chrome Extension", then click "Add to Chrome".


Step 2: Plugin activation

As soon as the download has finished, find the MetaMask icon in the top-right corner of your browser window. Click the MetaMask icon to open. Please note that although Metamask has released a new version, for the purpose of this course and for version stability reasons we are going to use the previous version, so click “No thanks, maybe later” and click "Accept" as soon as the privacy note comes up. Do the same for the Terms of Use in the next window.

Step 3: Account creation

Now you will be asked to create a password for the creation of your MetaMask account.

Type in your desired password in both boxes and click "Create" to start using your MetaMask browser extension.


Step 4: Seed words

MetaMask will now provide you with a list of seed words. Copy all of the words on the list and keep them in a safe place or simply click "Save seed words as a file" to download the words as a file. These words will be the only way to regain access to your account should you need to restore it.


Step 5: Account

Congratulations! You have now successfully created your MetaMask Ethereum account and can start using it. Now that the account creation process has been completed, a new screen with a single account will open in the main network: Account 1.

Step 6: You will now need to change your network from "Main Ethereum Network" to the “Ropsten Test Network”.

Step 7: To add tokens, click on “Tokens” and click “Add Token”. 


Step 8: Add the BEA coin by copying and pasting this BEA token contract address, token symbol and then click "Add".

Token Contract Address: 0x131aab072b952122ed41d94e7df8df2ad6cf3165

Token Symbol: BEA

Decimals of Precision: 18

Step 9: After adding the token contract address to your MetaMask wallet, it will show you the token balance.
