You’ll be able to fund your wallet either via on-ramping through MetaMask or via transferring into your Capsule wallet.

MetaMask Fiat On & Off-Ramp

Click “Buy/Sell” in your Metamask wallet and purchase crypto via a debit or credit card through MetaMask with Capsule selected as the destination account. This will send crypto straight to your Capsule wallet.

Signing Transactions

Now, use MetaMask as you normally would with your favorite dApps, anywhere that MetaMask is a supported wallet!
