Transfer Ether Fund to MetaMask Account

This section describes how to transfer some Ether fund to the MetaMask account from my Ether private network.

With MetaMask wallet connected to the local "geth" node, I can transfer some Ether fund to the MetaMask account:

1. On MetaMask, get the account address by selecting "Copy Address to clipboard" from the "..." menu:

0xef6Ea9F8Bd78ac42Fb2617ba90846D5785BB320c

2. On "geth" console, check the balance of the coinbase:

> web3.fromWei(eth.getBalance(eth.coinbase),"ether")
10000215

3. Submit the following transfer:

> sender = eth.coinbase
"0x05d4e1a499775ce9d681abd50bda655c7b5ccb90"

> receiver = "0xef6Ea9F8Bd78ac42Fb2617ba90846D5785BB320c"
"0xef6Ea9F8Bd78ac42Fb2617ba90846D5785BB320c"

> amount = web3.toWei(100,"ether")
"100000000000000000000"

> personal.unlockAccount(sender)
Unlock account 0x05d4e1a499775ce9d681abd50bda655c7b5ccb90
Passphrase: ******
true

> eth.sendTransaction({from:sender, to:receiver, value:amount})
"0xd956cdd46736f06fc9ea846b4ae1d78086f259df0acfdf47fc18b18dc216dd08"

4. Start the miner and watch the pending transaction:

> miner.start(1)

> txid = eth.pendingTransactions[0].hash
"0xd956cdd46736f06fc9ea846b4ae1d78086f259df0acfdf47fc18b18dc216dd08"

> eth.getTransaction(txid).blockNumber
null
...

> eth.getTransaction(txid).blockNumber
44

5. Go back to MetaMask. I see 100 ETH showing up!
