1. How to Add BOBA L2 to Metamask

Boba Protocol is an interoperable, EVM-compatible network. That means Solidity developers and their dApps can benefit from the scalability and security of the Boba Network. 

As a result, it can be easily added to Metamask.

To connect to the Boba Network via Metamask you need the right custom RPC points: network name, New RPC URL, Chain ID, and Currency symbol. 

NOTE: If you haven’t installed Metamask on your browser or mobile devices please head to the Metamask official website, download the application and create a wallet. Always keep your recovery phrase in a safe place. 

Whenever you are ready, Follow these steps to add BOBA

STEP 1: Unlock your Metamask Wallet

The first step is to unlock your Metamask Wallet extension or mobile Android/iOS device. Click the browser extension (or mobile app) and enter your secure password in the box.

Unlock Metamask Wallet

STEP 2: Click on the Network Dropdown Box

When you unlock your wallet, you’ll see the name of your default network as well as a dropdown arrow. Click that option to see a list of all your available networks.

Note: On mobile devices, select the hamburger menu.

STEP 3: Click Add Network Button

Note: On mobile devices, go to Settings and Select Networks

STEP 4: Click on “Add a Network Manually”

Following that, you’ll see a screen with the option to automatically add other networks. Unfortunately, Boba Network is not on that list. So, we will need to add it manually. 

Add a Network Manually

Click on [Add a Network Manually]

Note: On mobile devices, Click on “Add Network.” 

STEP 5: Input BOBA RPC Custom Details and Save

The final step is to input the RPC network details. RPC (remote procedure call) is a URL that allows you to connect to a server node (for example, the BOBA server) and interact with that Blockchain.

There are two kinds of BOBA networks. The production or real network, known as Boba Network (Mainnet), and the Boba testing network, known as Boba Tesnet.

If you are not a developer that wants to test their dApps before implementing them on the “real” blockchain, you can disregard the BOBA Tesnet information.

Note: On mobile devices switch to custom networks and fill up the RPC Custom Details. Then, click “Add.” 

Fill in: 

Boba Network

  • BOBA Mainnet Info: 
  • Network name: Boba Network
  • New RPC URL:
  • Chain ID: 288
  • Currency symbol: ETH
  • Block explorer URL(Optional):

Adding Boba Blockchain Explorer is optional, but it is always a good idea to fill out all of the information and know where to verify all BOBA blockchain transactions.

BOBA Testnet Info: 

Boba Testnet

  • Network name: Boba Network Goerli Testnet
  • New RPC URL:
  • Chain ID: 2888
  • Currency symbol: ETH
  • Block explorer URL(Optional):
Note: Due to the protocol changes of Ethereum: Rinkeby, Ropsten, and Kovan test networks have been deprecated and will be sunset soon. 
Check our How to add Rinkeby Testnet to Metamask [Updated 2023] to understand more.

After you input all the details, just click “Save” and Voilá!, your default network (E.g., Ethereum Mainnet) will be switched automatically to the BOBA Network. 

Now you are ready to interact with the BOBA Blockchain Platform!

Note: Alternatively, you can add the Boba Network automatically to your Metamask by connecting your on (select Boba Network or Boba Network Goerli Testnet) or the official Boba Network website and confirming the network switch.
