If you do not have a crypto wallet like MetaMask yourself, then you have to get one before you can continue with the fun. You can read more about how you can get a crypto wallet (a hardware wallet is recommended combined with using MetaMask) in the following article.

Do you like Anchor Protocol? Are you happy that it finally came to Avalanche? We are! But, if you want to read about another protocol that has a very cool concept and that is very similar to Curve Finance on Ethereum, then you should read more about Platypus Finance as well, a platform that could be considered one of the main competitors of Anchor Protocol (even though the platforms have different functions and use-cases).
