1. How to Add Metis to Metamask Fast

MetisDAO is an EVM-compatible network. That means solidity developers can use Metis’s power to build NFT and Social Media platforms, run gaming and freelancing communities, and create DeFi dApps like DEX trading and yield farming. All for a fraction of the cost of Ethereum.

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

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

Before you start, Ensure that:

  • You have a computer or mobile device with an internet connection
  • You have Metamask Installed on a supporting web browser (Chrome, Firefox, Brave, Edge) or mobile device (iOS or Android). 
  • Understand Crypto 101, in particular, DeFi
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. 

Let’s start tinkering with Metis DAO!

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.

Click on [Add a Network Manually]

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

STEP 5: Input METIS RPC Network Details and Save

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

There are two kinds of Metis networks. The production or real network, known as Metis Mainnet, and the Metis testing network, known as Metis Testnet. 

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

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