HOW TO CREATE YOUR METAMASK
If you don't know what we're talking about, MetaMask is a crypto wallet and gateway for blockchain applications. It is available as a browser extension and as a mobile app, offering benefits such as a key vault, secure login, token wallet and the ability to exchange tokens - in other words, everything you need to manage your digital assets.
First you need to go to the Metamask website to install the browser extension, which is available for Chrome, Firefox, Edge and Brave.
You will be redirected to the MetaMask guide on how to create an account.
MetaMask will ask you whether you want to import or create a wallet, click on "Create a Wallet".
You will need to set a password for your MetaMask, preserving your data access security.
A Secret Recovery Phrase is a 12-word phrase that is the "master key" to your wallet. It needs to be saved in a safe place in case you need to recover your account. Click on "Next".
You'll be able to see your Secret Recovery Phrase or choose "Remind me later".
Once you have set up your wallet, you will be redirected to your wallet page, where you can see all the information about it. Now you can connect your wallet to any website.
HOW TO REDEEM YOUR TOKENS
Once you have created your MetaMask, you can redeem your Abundance Tokens if you wish. What does this mean? You'll transfer the tokens to your digital wallet and be able to trade them like any other crypto-asset on the blockchain.
It's worth remembering that if your goal is carbon offsetting, this isn't the way to go. Once you sell your tokens, you no longer own the part of the forest you acquired by buying the trees. Here's how to redeem in stages.
When you enter your login and password on the Abundance Brasil platform, click on the "Redeem ATKs" button.
Select the number of tokens you want to redeem by clicking on the plus (+) or minus (-) button, remembering that you don't have to redeem all of them.
Click on the box "I confirm the redemption according to the disclaimer" and then on "Redeem". You will be redirected to the redemption page.
Choose where to send your asset, such as the MetaMask option that has already been installed.
Click on "Connect wallet" and wait.
MetaMask will ask if you allow it to add a network. Click "Approve".
Then click on "Change network" for MetaMask's Polygon network if it is not selected automatically.
On the "Connect to MetaMask" page, click "Next" to continue.
A new prompt should appear on the screen and you should click on the "Connect" button.
Back on the Abundance Brazil page to redeem the token, click on "Redeem" and wait a moment.
A pop-up asking for your subscription request should appear on the screen, and you can click on "Subscribe" to confirm the request.
Wait for the redemption to be processed and completed.
Check your number of trees and tokens on the homepage of our portal by checking the number of redeemed ATKs that are now in your digital wallet.
