An Ethereum wallet is your gateway to the world of DeFi. Similar to how you need a browser to access the internet - you need a crypto wallet to access DeFi. When you "Log-In" into a DeFi application, you don't sign-up with an e-mail and password like you would in any normal internet application. Instead you connect your Ethereum wallet by clicking a button or scanning a QR-code, depending on whether you're using a mobile wallet or a browser wallet.
An Ethereum wallet stores your private keys belonging to your account which contains all your digital tokens. That's why securing these keys safely is paramount! Anyone with access to your key could steal your assets.
In this tutorial, we'll show how you set-up a Metamask wallet and the best practices around safely storing your private keys.
