Transfer Wallet to MetaMask

On RtistiQ by default every user is assigned a Torus Wallet when you register to the Platform, which in effect creates a blockchain account and holds your private keys to manage any transactions on RtistiQ. You can access more about Torus Wallet here in this link, and boasts being a one-click login for Web3.0 allowing to link to regular authentication mechanism such as email, or social logins.

While it makes easier to create and manage Blockchain Accounts through Torus Wallet through 3rd Party Authentication mechanism of regular email and social logins, but then it also means that the Wallet is as secure as the Authentication used to connect. If your 3rd-party Authentication (email, google or facebook login) is compromised then the hacker can gain access to your blockchain account and the assets through it. Please follow best practices by protecting your logins with 2FA (eg. Google 2FA)
