Goal #1 Setup MetaMask wallet

        Google +    Pinterest   

MetaMask is an ERC 20 compatible wallet for use with ETHereum and Tokens like ARB that are built on the ETH platform. It is essential that an ERC 20 compliant wallet is used when interacting (Deposits and withdrawals) with the Arbitraging.co platform. This allows your deposits to be credited properly based on your unique wallet address. If you deposit directly from an exchange wallet (Like Coinbase) the team will have to manually track down your deposit to credit your account, and they will charge a minimum of $10 to do that. Please use MetaMask or another ERC20 Compliant wallet.

How to setup your MetaMask wallet:

Download and enable the MetaMask extension from here . This works best with Chrome browser, but FireFox is also supported.
