MetaMask is a useful tool that allows users to more easily navigate the decentralized web while taking advantage of everything the Ethereum blockchain has to offer.
The browser extension can also be used as an Ethereum-blockchain based crypto wallet as well as an extra layer of internet privacy.
Uphold, on the other hand, is a simple to use crypto investing platform that supports numerous crypto assets, not just those based on the Ethereum blockchain.
Transferring from MetaMask to Uphold takes three steps:
Below, we'll guide you through each part.
Have your Uphold account already set up? Move on down to Step 2!
First, you'll enter some account credentials - your email and a new password, and your country of residence and citizenship. Then, read and click agree with Uphold's terms of service, assuming you do.
Next, enter your first and last name, the territory where you live, and your birth date. You'll have to choose your username, and then Uphold will send you a confirmation email. Open the email to continue signing up.
After that, you'll need to sign up for 2-factor authentication, which Uphold uses for extra security for all its user accounts.
"2FA" works by requiring you to confirm inside the authenticator app it's actually you signing into Uphold. Uphold uses the Authy app to do this.
You'll have to download Authy and sign up using your phone number (signing up doesn't take long).
Finally, when everything's done, you'll need to verify your identity.
This last step is pretty quick too. You'll have to confirm your current address, and upload a photo of a valid ID like your driver's license, as well as a selfie to verify.
Now we need to locate and copy your Uphold wallet address to send your crypto to Uphold.
You'll need to select the specific Uphold wallet that's associated with the Ethereum-based token you're sending over.
