WHAT IS METAMASK?

MetaMask is the easiest way to interact with dapps in a browser. It is an extension for Chrome or Firefox or Opera that connects to an Ethereum network without running a full node on the browser’s machine. It can connect to the main Ethereum network, any of the testnets (Ropsten, Kovan, and Rinkeby), or a local blockchain such as the one created by Ganacheor Truffle Develop.

My Blockchain application demo is based on METAMASK. You can play my application with METAMAST but you have testcoin first.
