To leverage the Collab.Land bot, you will be asked to connect your wallet to the bot so it may verify you are the wallet owner.
For best results, make sure you are on your Telegram desktop app to complete these steps and you have already downloaded and setup MetaMask.
Joining starts with an invitation link from the bot. Communities generally post the link in a public group or website.
Example Link: https://telegram.me/collablandbot?start=ABCD1234...
After following the link you will receive a DM from the bot with a Start button at the bottom.
Select the Start button
Select Connect button.
A new window or tab will pop up in your browser with a selection of supported wallets. Select a wallet option to proceed.
Note: MetaMask selections are to connect while on a desktop. For mobile wallet apps please select WalletConnect.
Follow the instructions to have your wallet sign the connection request from the bot.
When the wallet is successfully linked, a wallet connected message will appear in the browser window. Return back to Telegram to proceed.
With your wallet connected, the bot will now provide a button to Join Group. Select the button to enter the group.
