Currently, we are using Metamask as our default wallet for cryptocurrency transactions. Metamask is a browser extension that allows you to interact with Ethereum-based decentralized applications. It provides a secure and user-friendly way to manage your digital assets and interact with the decentralized web.

To install Metamask, first, you need to have a compatible browser like Chrome, Firefox, or Brave. Then, you can go to the Metamask website and download the extension https://metamask.io/. Once installed, you can create a new wallet or import an existing one using your seed phrase.

The Horizon JavaScript SDK is a useful tool for facilitating communication between the Metamask wallet and the Horizon Node SDK. It provides an easy and efficient way to sign transactions and request data from the Horizon Network.

When using the Horizon JavaScript SDK, we can create and sign transactions in Metamask, and then use the resulting signature to make requests to the Horizon Node SDK. This simplifies the process of interacting with the Horizon Network, allowing developers to focus on building their applications rather than worrying about the complexities of transaction signing and data retrieval.
