You’ll need to have some kind of wallet to connect to interact with the Ethereum blockchain, if you need a step by step guide on how to download and create one, you can read on my blogpost here.
Navigate to Axie Marketplace page, and click on login on the top left of the page.
You’ll be greeted whether to login with MetaMask or email and password, click on login with MetaMask.
MetaMask pop-ups will appear, click Next, Connect and Sign when prompted. This does not cost any ETH.
You now have an Axie Infinity account. Sweet! However we’re not over yet.
Now is the time to give yourself a name.
In the middle of the dashboard, there is a Set up email and password button. Click on that and fill in your email and password.
You should receive a verification code in your email. Copy and paste the code into the text box and click Confirm.
Ronin is a side-chain that is built by Sky Mavis, the company behind Axie Infinity. This is where Axie activities and transactions take place now. In order to interact with Ronin, you’ll need a Ronin wallet. Ronin wallet extension can be found here.
On the dashboard you’ll see Wallets section.
Under Activate Ronin Wallet, click on Install Ronin Wallet.
This will bring you to Ronin Wallet extension page on the Chrome Webstore. Click Add to your browser.
Once you have it installed, click on the Ronin extension. Then click on Get Started.
You might need to find the wallet extension within your installed extensions and I highly recommend to pin it to your browser for quick access.
If you already have a Ronin wallet, you may import the wallet here. If you don’t click on “I’m new. Let’s get set up!”
There will be 3 steps to create a Ronin wallet:
Copying Seed Phrase somewhere safe
Once you’ve filled up your password for the wallet, click on create wallet.
Next, the Seed Phrase. Reveal the Seed Phrase and write it down. Recommended to keep it offline and have multiple copies of it.
Fill the text boxes with the correct word for each positions from your Seed Phrase, click continue. And your wallet is created!
You can check your wallet by clicking on Ronin Wallet extension.
The final step is to attach your Ronin Wallet it to your Axie Infinity account.
Click on “Attach Ronin to Account” under the Activate Ronin Wallet box, in the middle of the Dashboard.
Ronin pop-up will appear, click Confirm.
Glad you made it through! You now have a fully activated Axie account with Ethereum and Ronin wallets attached to it!
Next, you’ll need to buy at least 3 Axies to start playing!
