  2. Go to calendar settings and under "Share With Specific People" add your main email address. Set the permissions to "Make changes and manage sharing"
  3. Go to your main email address inbox and click the emailed link to add the calendar to your list. You should now see your dOrg email calendar events showing in your main calendar

What wallet should I use with dOrg?

MetaMask is a cryptocurrency wallet used to interact with the Ethereum and other EVM blockchains.

  1. Download the MetaMask browser extension.
  2. Click on the MetaMask extension and click on “Get Started” then “Create a Wallet”.
  3. Create a strong password for your wallet.
  4. Securely store the seed phrase for your wallet.
    • Click on “Click here to reveal secret words” to show the seed phrase.
    • MetaMask requires that you store your seed phrase in a safe place. It is the only way to recover your funds should your device crash or your browser reset. We recommend you write it down. The most common method is to write your 12-word phrase on a piece of paper and store it safely in a place where only you have access. Note: if you lose your seed phrase, MetaMask can’t help you recover your wallet and your funds will be lost forever.
    • Never share your seed phrase or your private key to anyone or any site, unless you want them to have full control over your funds.
  5. Seed phrase confirmation.
    • Confirm your secret backup phrase by clicking on each word in the order in which the words were presented on the previous screen. Click on “Confirm” to proceed.

Congratulations 🎉 ! Your MetaMask wallet has been set up successfully. You can now access your wallet by clicking on the MetaMask icon at the top-right-end corner of your preferred browser.
