To use the many features offered by the OpenSwap dApp, you must have MetaMask set up on the Harmony network and connected to the site.
MetaMask is available as a browser extension and mobile app that acts as a wallet and secure login.
If you have experience using MetaMask, simply connect your MetaMask using the orange “Connect MetaMask” button on the top right corner of the site.
