You'll need an Ethereum-enabled wallet to connect Augur to the Ethereum blockchain. The Augur platform currently supports Metamask, Trezor, Ledger, and Edge.
If you would like to connect to the Ethereum mainnet, enter the HTTP or websocket address for your desired node. Default configurations for testnets or running a local Ethereum node are available. All configuration options are editable.
The Augur App will start syncing with your Ethereum node of choice, and once the sync is complete you can click "Open Augur App" to open the Augur user interface in your browser.
The Augur platform currently supports Metamask, Trezor, Ledger, and Edge.
Go to dev.augur.net, connect your Ethereum wallet, and you're good to go. Use a Rinkeby faucet to get testnet ETH to play with, and grab some testnet REP on the Augur app's Account page.
