This guide will walk you trough importing your wallet from MyEtherWallet inside the Metal Vault application. If you don’t have a Metal Vault account yet, follow this guide to create one.
Log In To The Metal Vault Dashboard
When you enter the Metal Vault for the first time, you’ll notice that you have two preconfigured wallets: “My Ethereum wallet” and “My Metal wallet”. You can also import a wallet from MyEtherWallet manually.
Importing Your Wallet From MyEtherwallet In Metal Vault
Log in to the Metal Vault app, and go to the “Wallets” page; then click on the add wallet button (the “+” icon beside “Wallet”). You’ll be taken to the “Create wallet” page within your Metal Vault.
Step 1 asks “Which currency would you like to use?” Select “Ethereum”.
Step 2 asks “What kind of wallet do you want to create?” Select “Keystore”.
In Step 3, enter a name for the Ethereum wallet you want to create from the MyEtherWallet import. (It is good practice to give it a descriptive name, like “My ETH-Import Wallet” or “Jerry’s Fund” to avoid uncertainty later.)
In Step 4, select the keystore file (.DAT) from MyEtherWallet that you stored on your hard drive and fill in it’s associated password. Click on the “Import Keystore File” to start the import.
Your Imported MyEtherwallet Is Now Ready To Use In Metal Vault
