Step 1. - DeFi Wallet or Crypto Wallet

The first step would include creating a DeFi wallet and adding funds to it or using any DEX (Decentralized Exchange) which supports transfers funds from and to the Avalanche network. This can be achieved by using numerous ways, however, we will leave that up to you - the DeFi users, to decide what works best and suits your needs.

The best DeFi Wallets for beginners and advanced web3 users.

After you have successfully created a DeFi wallet, you will need to add the desired amount of funds from a fiat currency and buy $AVAX tokens. The next step is to send funds to your Avalanche (AVAX) wallet. However, before you do that, you will need to set up an Avalanche Wallet.

Step 2. - Set up an Avalanche Wallet

What is Avalanche?

Not familiar with Avalanche ($AVAX) yet? In short, Avalanche (Ethereum) or $AVAX is an open, programmable smart contracts platform for decentralized applications which allows users to execute transactions on the Ethereum network. Transactions are processed quicker and for a much lower gas cost than the Ethereum network itself.

Avalanche (AVAX) is being named as the Layer 1 solution and $ETH killer. It has quickly gained popularity in recent times and is a popular Ethereum alternative due to its amazingly cheaper and faster transaction timing and processing power. Avalanche blockchain attempts to address the downfalls of the preceding blockchains such as security, centralization, and last, but not least - scalability.

In addition, it claims to be cheaper (currently with lower gas fees), faster and more secure blockchain than Ethereum itself. Avalanche has adopted a PoS (Proof-of-Stake) consensus mechanism. The transaction times are as low as 3 seconds. Also, according to research, it is should be able to handle over 4500 TPS (transactions per second). As a result and thanks to the low fees and faster transaction timing, Avalanche is considered an excellent solution for decentralized finance (DeFi). Therefore, many users and most likely you would be interested in Avalanche because of its capabilities. Moreover, Avalanche features the main network which is its subnet that is divided into three separate chains. As such, below are the three main chains:

  • Exchange chain (X-Chain)
  • Platform chain (P-Chain)
  • Contract chain (C-Chain)

Setting up an AVAX wallet

After learning what Avalanche is, we can proceed to set up an Avalanche wallet. This is achieved by visiting the Avalanche Wallet website -

Then, users can either choose to create a new wallet or use their existing one. For this guide, we will select an existing wallet as we have already created one. However, it takes less than two minutes to set up an Avalanche wallet. The most important part here is to make sure the unique key phrase is saved and stored in a location where no one else has access. The key phrase plays a crucial role and if it is lost, so will the access to the Avalanche wallet. In the below image, you can see a fully connected Avalanche wallet:

At this stage, you should visit your crypto or DeFi wallet and send/withdraw funds to your Avalanche Wallet. It is crucial to send funds to the X-Chain, so please make sure that you are either scanning the correct chain's details or you are manually inputting the X-chain's correct address. Funds should arrive within a minute or two, so keep refreshing. Once your Avalanche balance is updated. You will have to transfer your funds from the X-Chain to the C-Chain. Transferring the funds will result in a small cost and will be executed almost instantly. If all steps have been followed accordingly, your balance will now be in the C-chain.

Step 3. - Transfer Avalanche to MetaMask

The next step would include having a MetaMask Wallet and sending funds from Avalanche C-Chain to MetaMask.

What is MetaMask?

In a few words, MetaMask is the most well-known crypto wallet on the market. MetaMask has been created by Aaron Davis from Consensys in 2016. The crypto wallet, which also functions as an application programming interface (API), is suitable for and can be connected to any Ethereum-based decentralized applications on the market. However, if you would like to learn more about MetaMask, then check out our article about what MetaMask is and our other articles on How to Connect MetaMask to Avalanche.

So, after understanding what is MetaMask, we must add AVAX tokens to the wallet.

Connecting to Avalanche manually

To accomplish this, users have to open up the browser MetaMask extension and select the Network button titled Ethereum Mainnet which will open a drop-down menu.

The dropdown menu where Custom RPC must be selected should resemble the image below:

From there, users have to navigate and click on the Custom RPC option will prompt them to input data. The data includes: network name, new RPC URL, chain ID, currency symbol and block explorer.

Users can enter the following Avalanche RPC network input data below:

  • Network Name: Avalanche Network
  • New RPC URL:
  • ChainID: 0xa86a or 43114
  • Currency Symbol: AVAX
  • Block Explorer URL:

Once users have completed the correct data input and have clicked on Save, then they will be able to switch to Avalanche from the application’s drop-down list in the future. As a result, MetaMask and Avalanche will be successfully linked. Here is an image of the correctly completed custom RPC:

Upon completion of the abovementioned steps, the Avalanche Network should be visible in your MetaMask wallet. All that is needed now is to go back to your Avalanche wallet's C-chain balance. From there, you should select the Send button, select the C-chain and paste your MetaMask address. Lastly, you will need to press confirm and the transaction will be complete. You will now see your AVAX tokens stored in your MetaMask wallet.

Step 4. will require you to visit Trader Joe's DEX.

Step 4. Swap AVAX for TIME at Trader Joe
