We recommend that ordinary investors use *USDC when they are new to "cryptocurrency".
USDC is a *stable currency jointly issued by the exchange giant Coinbase and the Cicle company under the Goldman Sachs Group. USDC is available in many countries around the world, including Taiwan, through ordinary banks.
For "purchasing USDC" and "in exchange with USD" in a bank in Taiwan, you would need to apply:
Please apply for a foreign currency account at your bank first. After you obtain a bank foreign currency account, please take notes of the bank's "SWIFT code", "bank English name" and "bank English address", which will be required when applying for a Circle account.
Please note: Please use English to fill in the name and address of the Circle account. Please choose a passport for the license item. The name must be the same as the English name on your passport. The anti-counterfeit laser mark of the passport will reflect light and obscure the text at certain angles, so the mobile phone camera must obtain an appropriate angle to avoid it.
Below is the URL for Circle to open an account. Circle has a website in Chinese. The application for an account is very user-friendly. You can easily complete the application as long as you follow the guidelines:
After the account application is completed, Circle will provide you with a Circle personal USD account. To purchase USDC, you only need to use the bank's foreign currency account remittance service (recommended to use online banking, fast and convenient), transfer USD to the personal USD account provided by Circle, and USDC stable currency will appear in your Circle account after three to seven days.
It is very easy to use Circle to exchange USDC back into US dollars. Just fill in the amount of USDC to be withdrawn on Circle, and Circle will transfer the equivalent US dollars to your Taiwanese personal bank foreign currency account.
MetaMask wallet is a * browser plug-in, currently supports Google Chrome, Firefox. It should be noted that MetaMask does not support Apple's Safari browser.
Like most wallets, MetaMask does not store user information. All wallet private keys and passwords are held by the user. Even if MetaMask stops updating, the user can transfer the private key to other wallets. Get your cryptocurrency back.
The following MetaMask wallet installation uses Google Chrome as an example.
Circle restricts you to only transfer USDC to addresses that you have "added" to your USDC account and verified. If you choose "Transfer USDC" without adding the withdrawal address to your account in advance, the system will prompt you to add an address. This option is also available in the "Select Address" drop-down list on the "Transfer Out of USDC" screen.
When you finish adding the address, you can transfer the USDC in the Circle account to the Ethereum address of the MetaMask wallet. Proceed as follows:
Artem services require public chain wallets to link smart contracts. Therefore, to activate Artem service, you need to connect MetaMask and Artem first.
Open Artem's website and click on the black "Enter Service" arrow at the bottom left.
After entering the main screen of the Artem service, you need to open the authorization connection of the MetaMask wallet to connect MetaMask and Artem. Please click "Link MetaMask" at the top right of MetaMask.
Now let's try to deposit a little USDC to enter Artem. Even if there are only a few blocks of time (tens of seconds), you can get interest, which is a very interesting thing.
Now let us try to borrow a little USDC to come out.
