1 Add the Ronin wallet to your browser as an extension.
Download the Ronin wallet and add it to your browser. It’s compatible with different browsers Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, and Kiwi Browser.
However, most people use it as an extension on Chrome. Nonetheless, you can use any of the other mentioned browsers.
Click here to download the Ronin wallet.
Subsequently, after downloading it click on add to the browser. In my case, I’ll add it to the Microsoft Edge browser.
On the page click on “Add to Chrome” and it will be added to your browser.
2 Click on the Ronin wallet extension.
Afterward, click on the Ronin wallet to open the extension.
Click on the puzzle icon which is next to the favorites icon on the top bar of Microsoft Edge.
Upon clicking on the icon a list of all extensions in your browser will drop down from the window.
Scroll to your Ronin wallet extension and click on the extension to open it.
3 Click the “Get Started” button and select “I’m let’s get set up”
After clicking on the “Get Started” button in the pop-up that will appear select it and land on a new page.
The “Welcome to Ronin Wallet” page.
Since this is your first time creating a wallet, click on “I’m new. Let’s get set up!”
But if you already have an existing wallet select “I already have a secret recovery phrase. Import wallet”
The first selection is for you to create an account.
In addition to getting set up, you will come across the Ronin data tracking page where they’ll ask for permission to collect your data. The data will be from your previous sessions. Click on “Allow tracking”. This data collected is used to enhance usability and make improvements where needed.
4 Create your password.
Immediately after the data tracking page, You will be required to enter your desired password and confirm it.
Ensure it’s an 8-digit/character password and you won’t forget it or better yet store it in Google Drive or iCloud.
Re-enter the password in the “confirm password” field. Afterward, click on “Create Wallet” so as to finalize the procedure and head to the next step.
5 Get your recovery phrase and save it.
Thereupon, you will receive your seed phrase. Firstly save it either in google backup or jot it down somewhere you alone can access. Whereas someone might decide to write it in his/her diary it would be much more secure if stored in Google Drive or on iCloud.
In order to successfully verify your seed phrase, you will be required to”Fill in the correct word in the blanks given for the seed phrase“
Let’s assume your first word is “go” and the second is “teacher” e.t.c. You will be required to fill the words in the spaces as numbered in your seed phrase.
However simple that may seem a slight mistake will hinder you from going forward.
After entering the words as required you will thereby click “continue”
7 Use your Ronin wallet
Finally, your wallet will be ready. Rather your wallet will present you with a success page.
Finally, you can now access the Axie Infinity Marketplace. Not only access it but also you can log in to the marketplace.
As a result, click Axie Infinity Marketplace to access the marketplace.
Next click on “Login with Ronin Wallet2 to gain access to the marketplace.
To conclude it all choose a name, set up an email, and lastly a password.
In conclusion, setting up a Ronin wallet is considered the first step to playing Axie Infinity.
Secondly, you will have to purchase 3 Axies from the Axie Infinity Marketplace for you to be able to play the game.
Thirdly the marketplace can offer you a scholarship if you lack enough funds to purchase the Axies yourself. And finally, Axie Infinity is available on PC, Android, and iOS.
However, it’s preferable to create a Ronin wallet on a PC than on an Android or iOS device.
