Do I need to pay anything to visit DCL?

No! DCL is totally free to join and explore. You don't need to spend any money to participate on the Decentraland platform. However, to ensure you gain access to all the benefits of attending events at ZED HQ, you will need a wallet.

What is a wallet? How do I create one?

MetaMask is a digital wallet that can be used to create your ZED RUN stable and enables you to access experience in ZED HQ at DCL.

The MetaMask wallet is a plugin extension that lives within your web browser which can interact with the blockchain. Download the Metamask extension for your favourite browser here.

Here is a good visual tutorial to follow.

How do I create an avatar to visit ZED HQ?

To create an avatar in Decentraland, visit https://decentraland.org/ Click ‘Get Started’ and then select ‘Play using your wallet’ to ensure you gain access to all the benefits of attending events at ZED HQ. You can choose your appearance and outfit, before jumping into Decentraland.

What about users who already have a ZED RUN Magic wallet but not a MetaMask wallet?

For the full ZED HQ experience in Decentraland, we advise you to create your own MetaMask wallet which is supported through our platform. This allows you to claim things like POAPs and free wearables, and purchase additional in-game items too. Note: If you choose to ‘Play as Guest’ you will not gain access to all the benefits or experiences at ZED HQ.
