What do I need to buy an AlphaColo VM?
Heres what you need to get started:
- A computer or laptop running the desktop version of Chrome or Firefox
- MetaMask, a digital wallet used specifically with web apps
- Ether, a form of digital payment that purchases AlphaColo Virtual Machines
Installing MetaMask, your digital wallet
To purchase AlphaColo Virtual Machines you will need to install MetaMask, a digital wallet. You will need to put money into it to purchase a virtual machine
Note: A digital wallet like MetaMask acts like a bank account - treat it with respect and make sure you do not forget your password or seed words
Getting Ether, your digital currency
For everyone else: you will need to purchase ETH from an exchange. The easiest way is using Coinbase and then transferring the ETH from your Coinbase wallet to your MetaMask wallet.
You can also use USD to pay for your AlphaColo Virtual Machines
For U.S. citizens only: you are able to purchase ETH directly from the MetaMask wallet using the Coinbase widget. This is more convenient and doesn’t require you to create two accounts.
For everyone else: you need to buy ETH from an exchange using normal fiat currency. Coinbase is the easiest to setup however the choice is ultimately up to you. Copy your MetaMask address but clicking on the ‘...’ then ‘Copy Address to clipboard’. Go to Coinbase and click ‘Accounts’ and select your ETH Wallet and then click ‘send’. Paste the MetaMask address in the box with the amount you’d like to transfer.
