Import your seed phrase into Metamask

In this section, we'll go through how to import the _first-dao_** seed phrase** into the Metamask wallet.

Log in to your Metamask wallet

The first step is to open up the Metamask browser extension and log in. If you're using Chrome you should be able to open Metamask by clicking on the fox icon located to the right of your address bar (see the image below).

If you can't see it, click here. This will open up an interface to your Ethereum wallet.

Since we will import a new seed phrase, save the seed phrase of your current Metamask account by going to: Settings > Securty & Privacy > Reveal Secret Recovery Phrase.

Click on the circle in the top right

You should see a black drop-down menu appear (see image below):

Click on the Lock button in the top right off this menu

You'll be taken to a Welcome Back page:

Importing seed phrase

Importing the 12 words phrase will allow you to use Metamask with your first-dao.

If you are running the Aragon Client, enter the path and type:

cd first-dao yarn start

Click on Forgot password. Metamask should now open up in a new window with a heading Reset Wallet.

Now, what you need to do is to look at the output of your terminal after you run yarn start. You should see the following at the start:

main     | Starting Aragon app development...
main     | App name: first-dao
main     | App id: 0x4c93e09d64b5a9a4c770869d95fd637936feb6ae784413a480ae0aa65889348a
main     | Accounts mnemonic "explain tackle mirror kit van hammer degree position ginger unfair soup bonus"

These 12 words phrases will allow us to use Metamask to access an account that has permission to update the Counter in our Counter app.

Note that your seed phrase (or mnemonic phrase) won't be the same as mine. So make sure you copy yours from your terminal, and not from this blog.

Create a new password

Once you copied the 12 word seed phrase, paste it into the wallet seed text box, and create a new password (see image below):

Click on the Restore button at the bottom of the page

The imported account will appear in the My account list when clicking on the top right circle.

You've now connected Metamask to your first-dao.
