1000% easier to use the MetaMask wallet, even if you only use for Minds Tokens. Your private key appears exposed to Minds, and the “system” of buying tokens works so much easer. I suggest making a wallet just for the token.
First you need some ETH. That is out of scope of this quick summery. If you don’t have ETH Coinbase is the easiest to to buy ETH with a credit card/bank account https://www.coinbase.com
If you are totally new to Crypto and would like to “get in” and buy some Bitcoin, start here. EVERYONE tends to start with Coinbase. Checkout the below video from Crypto Love if you are new getting into Crypto.
We cover many topics including new features coming to Minds soon, prominent and increasing censorship in mainstream media and social media, Bills motivations in creating Minds, security of user data, and how censorship driving new users to Minds.
The new features coming are game changers and can be downloaded from GitHub for those interested in an early checkout. One of features to Minds.com are Jitsi a video conferencing system similar to Skype. Radiant Creators believes Jitsi will “Killer App” that grows the Minds platform greatly.
