How to Trade on ForkDelta – A Quick Guide

Over the past year, the cryptocurrency landscape has changed drastically, and there has been a boom of Decentralized Exchanges. One of the most famous decentralized exchanges in cryptocurrency is EtherDelta. However, the quality of EtherDelta has been subpar compared to more modern exchanges. Members of the EtherDelta Community came together and used the smart contract backend of ED, created their own frontend to work and create a better user experience. They called this site ForkDelta.

Here is a step by step guide on how to trade with ForkDelta using the MetaMask method. Which is one of the safest methods to use dApps as your private key is not directly interacting with the site.
