💫 Welcome Wilder! Ready to live the lore and protect your assets with a Ledger like n3o does?
💫 Wilder World wants to ensure that Wilders near and far are up to speed on best practices to keep Wilder NFTs and tokens safe. This guide will showcase the most common ways to utilize a blockchain wallet and why Ledger is our go-to option for securing our Trinities!
💫 With a deeper understanding on how to organize your $WILD, NFTs, and the wallets they are stored in, you’ll be ready to secure your most prized digital assets like precious gems in an impenetrable vault.
Below we’ve listed the three main variations on how to utilize a wallet on the blockchain:
❄️ A Cold Wallet is a hardware wallet that should hold your most valuable assets. This wallet stays completely offline. Do not connect it to any sites or approve any smart contracts. You want to be as safe as possible with your Wilder World assets; do not risk compromise with this wallet!
🔥 A Hot Wallet is a very active wallet. Usually automated with programs built to trade for you. These programs are constantly signing contracts, transferring assets, etc. Wilders, note that your own hand would not be the one actually signing to approve these actions. Using a wallet in this way will make it very susceptible to compromise.
🔅A Warm Wallet is the same as a hot wallet, but without automation. Your hand would always be the one approving transactions and smart contracts. This makes it safer than a hot wallet and better suited for trading a minimal amount of Wilder World assets.
Knowing the difference between digital and hardware wallets is one of many small steps towards harnessing the power that knowledge of blockchain safety can provide.
In both the real world and in the 5D metaverse, online wallets, like MetaMask, live on your computer and store your private keys on the device. On the flip side, offline wallets, like Ledger, can be unplugged from the computer, and keep your private keys safe in a complex, protected, USB device. Offline wallets can utilize online wallets, like MetaMask or Ledger Live, for active use.
💻 Digital Examples
- MetaMask, Coinbase, Binance, & Exodus
🗄️ Hardware Examples
- Ledger, Trezor, NGRAVE, & BitBox
Danger lurks around every corner when managing a portfolio of cryptocurrency and NFTs and there are many scammers in the trustless environment of blockchain who are looking for the weak link. Don’t let that be you!
Ledger is Wilder World’s top recommendation for protected, offline Blockchain storage hardware to keep your $WILD and WW NFTs safe. With Ledger, Wilders can secure, store, and manage over 5,500+ crypto assets, including NFTs.
What Ledger Model should I Get?
We recommend either the S Plus or the X, as they are the most updated mode.
Ledger, MetaMask, & OpenSea: Oh what a Wholesome Trinity Pairing a Ledger to MetaMask and OpenSea accounts will provide Wilders access to minting, staking, buying, & transferring all the high quality NFTs and tokens Wilder World has to offer.
📌 Upon the download of MetaMask, next steps include creating an account, and keeping all its information in a secure location where it won’t get lost or stolen.
📌 This MetaMask account will be used to purchase, trade, mint, stake, etc, all sorts of Metaverse ready assets.
👉Open MetaMask and create a regular MetaMask account
- In the next steps, you will add a second account to MetaMask: your Ledger Ethereum (ETH) account.
👉 Once you're all set up, open MetaMask in your browser, click on the three dots icon, and select Expand view. This will display a tab to easily navigate through.
👉 Plug your Ledger device into your computer and open the Ethereum (ETH) app on the device by navigating to the Ethereum icon and pressing both buttons simultaneously. Your Ledger device will display Application is ready.
👉 In MetaMask, click the identicon, select Connect Hardware Wallet > Ledger, and click Continue. After a brief moment, a list of account addresses appears.
- Select an account by ticking the box then click Unlock. Viola, simple as that!
👉 Now, NFTs and Crypto will not show in your MetaMask app unless imported. To see your WW NFTs, simply log in to OpenSea with that MetaMask account.
Wilders with pre-existing MetaMask accounts who want to transfer their Trinities to their new and secure Ledger should follow these steps:
🌊 Log in to OpenSea and go to your profile.
🌊 Click the NFT you want to transfer, then the icon located in the top right that looks like a gift.
🌊 Input your Ledger wallet address which can be found both in MetaMask and inside Ledger Live.
Enabling blind signing is required to sign most transactions involving smart contracts. For example, you will need to enable blind signing when using an Ethereum dApp through MetaMask.
😃 Fun Fact: You won't need to enable blind signing when using a dApp that is available in the Discover tab in Ledger Live.
🖊️ Connect and unlock your Ledger device.
🖊️ Open the Ethereum application.
