Web3 Getting Started

ChangeDAO is a Web3 decentralized application built on the Ethereum blockchain. It is a first-of-its-kind NFT Giving Platform which means we have designed it specifically to empower Changemakers to maximize their social impact.
To interact with the Web3 ecosystem of decentralized applications built on Ethereum, including minting NFTs on ChangeDAO, you will need to become Web3-enabled.
To do that, you will need a Web3 Ethereum Wallet (like Metamask).
You will then need to fund your Web3 Ethereum Wallet to make transactions, like minting an NFT on ChangeDAO.

Web3 = Web We Are Our Own Bank!

In 2021 I started this document of best practices for personal security in Web3. I realize now, several years later, that most of the hacks and scams that I see in Web3 could have been prevented. Before you go any further, I suggest focusing first on your personal security.
