In the following guide we will show you how to add the Fantom network to your Metamask wallet.

Metamask is a multi-network Etheruem wallet. It enable users to access their ethereum and second-layer ethereum wallets through a user friendly browser extension or mobile app. Metamask is the most commonly supported wallet by new cryptocurrency projects to allow users to interact with applications.

INSTALLING AND SETTING UP METAMASK

Goto the Metamask download page here. Metamask is available for Chrome, Firefox, iOS and Android. In this example we will use the firefox browser extension.

Once installed click Create Wallet. Make sure you write down your seed phrase, this must be stored in a safe and secure place as it is your backup, in case of device loss or damage.

But bare in mind that if anyone was to get hold of your seed phrase they can also access, and therefore steal your funds.

Metamask will now ask you to confirm your seed phrase, this ensures you have written it down correctly.

Once this has been successfully completed your new wallet is ready to go!

CONFIGURING THE WALLET

The standard default installation of Metamask is connected only to the Etheruem Network. To add additional networks you will need to goto the Settings page as shown below:

Select Settings from the dropdown menu

 

 

Now select Networks from the settings page and select Add Network

Now you will need to manually enter the details of the Fantom network

 

 

Fantom Network Parameters

Network Name: Fantom

New RPC URL: https://rpc.ftm.tools

ChainID: 250

Symbol: FTM

Block Explorer URL: https://ftmscan.com/

Once all parameters have been entered into the necessary fields, press SAVE

That’s it. Your metamask wallet will now be able to access, send and receive your Fantom based Assets.
