What is an admin wallet?

Your admin wallet holds the private keys that are used to deploy NFT collections and other smart contracts on Immutable zkEVM. Because your admin wallet controls your game's smart contracts, you must take extra security precautions around using it and backing up the private keys it holds.

Generally we recommend using Metamask as the admin wallet for testing purposes.

Keep a backup of your private key in a secure place to ensure the safety of your smart contracts.
