HOW DO I USE THE METAMASK WALLET?
1. Download the Metamask wallet
2. Create a wallet (if you do not already have one)
3. Document your secret phrase
We highly recommend using a Stonebook to safely document your secret/seed phrases. A link to purchase your own Stonebook will be provided in the links below the video.
4. Transfer either ETH, AVAX, or Smart Chain into your Metamask Wallet
For $SENT token, you'll use the Zero Wallet which allows you to swap either Ethereum, Avalanche, or Smart Chain.
Otherwise, you may transfer any coin that allows transfers into your Metamask wallet if you are NOT planning on buying $SENT token
We will use ETH for the demonstration

1. From your exchange of choice, select ETH*
2. Select "Transfer"
3. We are going to withdraw ETH*
4. Cope the Metamask wallet address into your exchange of choice
*or any other chosen, transferable token

This is a RARE occurrence but you'll be glad when you have your recovery phrase (sometimes called a seed phrase or mnemonic phrase) on hand!

HOW DO I STAKE CARDANO FOR PASSIVE INCOME?
A: POW is using powerful computers to solve a complex mathematical problem to then acquire a reward (such as gaining bitcoin).
POS is like a lottery system where the more tokens you hold of a cryptocurrency the greater the chance you'l have to get the opportunity to mint a block on the blockchain and thereby gain a reward (such as Cardano)
Video Time Stamp: 01:05 - 01:48
A: Rewards are paid out every Epoch and every Epoch is 5 days.
Video Time Stamp: 02:00 - 02:23
A: Your Cardano tokens (ADA) stay IN YOUR WALLET and NEVER leave. This is the beauty of the Cardano Staking Protocol.
Video Time Stamp: 02:24 - 02:49
A: If a Stake Pool Operator (SPO) has an issue and is NOT able to keep the node online due to errors then the reward (ADA) will be passed on to the next stake pool that is functioning.
With DNEWS this will not happen as we have monitoring 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year with Grafana and Kubernetees on the Microsfot Azure network that is Commercial Grade and extremely reliable.
Video Time Stamp: 03:30 - 03:55
A: There are 2 fees:
1. The mandatory fee set by Cardano is 340 ADA. Some stake pools charge more but at DNEWS we charge the bare minimum. This fee is enforced to help cover the operating costs of the stake pool and is spread out over the ENTIRE pool so no ONE person pays for it. It is split among all the people who have staked their ADA in the pool (i.e. the delegates).
2. The Margin Fee is set by every Stake Pool Operator and DNEWS is set at 5%. Some charge more and some charge less but with our pool's reliability, uptime and security we feel this is the ideal price range. So, if your staking rewards are 100 ADA, our 5% comes to only 5 ADA and you keep 95 ADA. Very simple

HOW DO I STAKE AVALANCHE FOR PASSIVE INCOME?
-Your $AVAX stays in your wallet where you have TOTAL CONTROL over what you do with it.
-When you stake your $AVAX, you're helping secure the network (Proof-of-Stake)
Time Stamp: 1:00 - 2:15
-wallet.avax.network (link provided below the video)
- create your wallet and set up your private key. (DO NOT share this information with anyone!)
-$AVAX exists on the:
+ X-Chain - to be traded
+ P-Chain - to be staked
+ C-Chain for smart contracts and to pay for gas
So depending on how you intend to use Avalanche, the next step is to copy the respective chain's address into your exchange of choice (where your $AVAX lives) then transfer your desired amount!
