how to set up a base wallet and trade on the base network

Base is one of the more recent networks available that allow you to trade cryptocurrencies that you won’t typically find on centralized exchanges. Some popular tokens on that network are Mystcl ($MYST), Boge ($BOGE), and Aerodrome Finance ($AERO).

In order to trade on the Base Network, you will need a Metamask Wallet and Ethereum (ERC) for both trading and gas fees. To get started, see the instructions below.

1. Download, install, and set up your Metamask Wallet – You can download the Metamask wallet for your desktop computer’s web browser using the Google Chrome Extension Store or on the Mozilla Firefox Extension Store.

If you would like to use your mobile device instead, go to either your Apple App Store or the Google Play Store to download Metamask Wallet, which is free. Upon installation and set up, follow the instructions on how to back up your wallet and set a password.

2) Funding your wallet with Ethereum – On your Metamask wallet, select the Ethereum network. Copy the wallet address and send Ethereum to it. You can Buy and Send Ethereum using platforms like MEXC, Changelly, and Gemini.
