Getting Started
A quick guide to Defi on Avalanche

Getting Started

Just like on other chains, Avalanche also needs some native AVAX tokens to pay for gas and buy other tokens on the chain.

Setup Wallet

  • You can watch this video to setup your Avalanche wallet.
    • Make a note of your X-Chain address.
  • Follow this guide for metamask setup.
    • Your C-Chain address is the same as your Ethereum or BSC wallet address.
  • TLDR; X-Chain is for AVAX token transfer from Exchange to Defi, C-Chain is for Defi.
