Why we're sunsetting support for Fortmatic wallet
We recently integrated RainbowKit, which provides a variety of support for other wallets in the web3 ecosystem. Unfortunately, RainbowKit does not support the Fortmatic wallet because the team at Fortmatic was rebranded to Magic, where they have shifted their focus to work on a new wallet product. Not to worry, you can still access your Fortmatic wallet on their website, and you can still access your SuperRare account with your Fortmatic wallet. We’ll walk you through the process below.
After following the steps in this article, read Importing Your Fortmatic Wallet to Metamask for additional steps on importing your keys into a new, supported Wallet.
⚠️ VERY IMPORTANT: This MUST be done on a desktop browser and NOT on a mobile phone. Please note that ONLY you can perform this process. SuperRare Labs or Fortmatic CAN NOT do this for you. No one should be asking you for this file or private keys to complete the migration. For more scam prevention please refer to this help desk article: How to Avoid Scams
NOTE: If you have forgotten your credentials, please refer to Fortmatic's Help Desk Article: How do I reset my password
