Before you go on spending your days and nights engrossed in ALT+F Summit, there a few things you can do to make the best out of this experience:
1. You need a safe and secure browser
Before you start collecting your crypto rewards and everything to deal with e-wallets, we want to make sure you get the best and safe experience handling all these transactions. And before you even further your online dealings, what better browser that safely let’s you connect your wallet, protects your data and personal information and gives you the fastest browsing experience all in one than Brave.
Step 1 for you is to download brave browser on your device and slide into the safety of surfing online without being tracked or nudged by advertisers & hackers.
Step 1: Download a safe & secure browser
But why Brave, right?
Brave is the new-age web browsing experience that has been able to make a mark in providing privacy while browsing & offering a crypto based ad network. Brave intercepts advertisements and website tracking, it will feature Wikipedia as the first top-10 verified sites on the platform and accept gratuities and donations in the form of Basic Attention Tokens (BAT).
Why should you use Brave?
User privacy is in crisis. It’s in an ever-increasing consumer-surveillance ad model that relies on tracking and profiling users. Issues ranging from large scale ad based political manipulations to fake media, are tearing the social fabric of truth, trust and transparency. This is where Brave comes in and gives you the safe and secure browsing experience.
When we say you will get rewards and token coins for participating, we will be making sure you are equipped with the right gear to avail the benefits of it all.
Step 2 for you would be to download metamask.
Step 1.1: Download Metamask and set it up
This step involves a few processes for you to follow and make your online digital crypto wallet not just safe from hackers but online tracking and spamming ads.
So, to begin you need to understand the ins and outs of getting a wallet with MetaMask.
Setting up your wallet, you need to:
1. Download and install the MetaMask browser extension. Once enabled, the MetaMask icon appears next to the Brave shield menu icon.
2. Select “Create a Wallet.”
3. Create a username and password.
4. Once you have stored your uniquely assigned Secret Recovery Phrase, you need to keep it somewhere safe and accessible to only you.

Once you have downloaded brave and metamask in your device, you will have the safety and protection in buying, storing, sending and swapping tokens online, in a nutshell, you will have everything you need to manage your important digital assets.
Understanding Metamask & why its secure
Unlike other crypto wallets out there, MetaMask is built to be privacy-first. Now it’s easier for you to access, store and swap tokens, without having to worry about dApps or exchanges accessing your personal data. Using MetaMask, you are in control of all your assets and data sets.
Using Metamask with Dapps

Step 2. Visit Treejer and select “Connect Wallet” button at top of the page
Step 3. Select “Metamask” as the wallet and continue
A pop-up window appears and you need to approve the message
That’s how you install and set up your wallet in your device. Once done, you’ll be able to access your wallet for your transactions. To be able to fully utilize the benefits of the summit airdrops and more (wink wink), you will be required to add OCEAN token to your wallet . This enables you and all the participants in experiencing the best of the tools we have in the marketplace.

All the prizes will be distributed in the OCEAN tokens, its helpful to know a bit about our sponsor and the real power behind these tokens, its not just a cash incentive but Ocean market is a marketplace that have superpowers in blockchain and all things decentralized currency. It is a platform which provides tokens for buying and selling. It’s a decentralized exchange (DEX), tuned for data.
Interoperability. Ocean-powered markets publish, buy, sell, and consume datatokens, which are ERC20. Therefore, you can publish a datatoken in Ocean Market, store it in Metamask, transfer it to a DAO, and perform other DeFi operations.
