As the first-ever multi-chain metaverse game, Blockchain Monster Hunt brings together members of various blockchain organizations. Blockchain Monster Hunt is an AR mobile game inspired by Pokémon GO and lets users catch, train, and battle various monsters for rewards.
You can use a cryptocurrency exchange or a financial institution that accepts deposits from bank accounts or credit cards to buy Blockchain Monster Hunt with USD.
Coinbase, PayPal/Venmo, and Robinhood are your three best bets in the US for this.
The most well-known of the three is PayPal (or Venmo); however, if you want to trade this cryptocurrency on other platforms, this is not the ideal option right now because you cannot move the cryptocurrency in your PayPal account to another account, either on or off PayPal.
Like PayPal and Venmo, Robinhood “does not yet give you access to your wallet or your wallet address,” meaning that there is no way to move cryptocurrency out of the Robinhood platform.
Download a Metamask Wallet:
On the Ethereum network, users have a selection of crypto wallets from which to choose, but Metamask is the option with the highest level of integration. Downloading Google Chrome and the wallet extension for Chrome is something you can do if you are working from a desktop computer.
If it is available, downloading the wallet from the Google Play Store or the iOS App Store is an option for those who would rather use their mobile devices. Visit the Metamask website to ensure you download the official Chrome extension and the mobile application.
Set up your Metamask:
Metamask allows you to add a password, save the password, and connect the wallet to a Chrome browser loaded with Google Chrome.
You can select which cryptocurrencies you want to fund your Metamask account with. You can create a wallet on Coinbase, send Bitcoin from Coinbase directly into your Metamask account (pictured above), or purchase Ether from another exchange and transfer it over.
There are two options. You can purchase ETH directly from an exchange or use a cryptocurrency exchange to deposit funds into your account and then transfer them to your Metamask wallet. The cryptocurrency exchanges that work best with Coinbase include Binance, Bittrex, and Bitfinex.
Once you have finished adding funds to your Metamask wallet, you will need to find a place in the game where you can select “go.
Send Ethereum Your Crypto Wallet:
Once you are ready to send Ethereum to your Ethereum address in MetaMask, you must unlock MetaMask.
Select “Access” from the Metamask menu on the left of the screen, and then select “Reveal Account” from the dropdown.
Enter your password, and then Metamask will send you a string of numbers and letters unique to each MetaMask account.
Choose a Decentralized Exchange (DEX):
You can exchange Ether for Blockchain Monster Hunt tokens (BKMT) at a decentralized exchange, which still needs to be available on all DEXs.
Connect Your Wallet:
You will need to connect your MetaMask account to a wallet that supports ERC20 tokens and will accept incoming transfer requests from Metamask. You can also send Ethereum directly to your MetaMask account by sending an in-wallet transaction or requesting it through a phishing attempt (where your MetaMask password is compromised). You can use the same Ethereum address that you used to deposit funds into your account.
Trade Your Ethereum:
You can trade your Ethereum for tokens with other users on the game’s decentralized exchange.
It can be a little confusing to get started with, but Metamask and blockchain-based wallets are the future of cryptocurrency. You cannot access your cryptocurrency in PayPal or Venmo. Therefore you will need a wallet that can store your cryptocurrency.
While it may be necessary to set up a MetaMask account and Ethereum wallet, you will have no problem transferring Ethereum from Coinbase, Bitfinex, Bittrex, or other exchanges into your MetaMask account and then onto the game’s decentralized exchange.
