Why and how to connect a wallet to Radar Relay.
Unlike exchanges, Radar Relay does not hold custody of your crypto assets at any point. What this means is rather than depositing into Radar Relay you will need to connect a third party wallet that holds all of your crypto assets. All trades on Radar Relay are sent directly from one wallet to another.
Currently, Radar Relay supports Ledger Nano S and MetaMask
What’s the difference?
MetaMask is a Web3 enable Chrome extension. What this means is that it acts as a portal between you and the Ethereum Blockchain. When you create a wallet through MetaMask you are generating a place for you to store crypto assets on the blockchain. This address, or series of addresses, are accessible only by you using your private key that MetaMask also creates.
To use MetaMask with Radar Relay, download the chrome extension here and create an account. Once the account is created, send some ETH from another wallet or exchange to your MetaMask wallet. When you open the Radar Relay app choose “MetaMask” from the connect wallet dropdown in the header and unlock your MetaMask. For more information on making a trade using Metamask click here.
Ledger is a hardware wallet, which generates a private key internally. This standalone device lets you have complete control over your crypto assets. This is the most secure way to store and trade your assets. You can purchase or learn more here.
To use your Ledger with Radar Relay, plug the device into your computer. Once plugged in, choose “Ledger” from the connect wallet dropdown and unlock your wallet to begin trading. For more information on making a trade using your Ledger click here.
