Adding a Custom RPC to MetaMask: A Step-by-Step Guide
MetaMask is a popular cryptocurrency wallet that allows you to interact with decentralized applications (dApps) on the Ethereum blockchain. By default, MetaMask is configured to communicate with the Ethereum network, but you can also add support for other networks using the “RPC” (Remote Procedure Call) feature.
Method 1: Manually copy the RPC details
If you want to manually add a custom RPC to your MetaMask wallet, here’s how to do it:
Step 1: Open MetaMask and select “Custom RPC” Open MetaMask and click on the network selection dropdown in the top center of the screen. From there, select “Custom RPC” at the bottom of the list.
Step 2: Enter the details of the custom RPC In the “New Network” screen, enter a name for the network (e.g., “My Network”). Then, in the “RPC URL” field, enter the URL for the network’s RPC endpoint. You can usually find this information in the dApp’s documentation or by contacting the network’s developer. Next, enter the chain ID for the network (also available from the same sources). Optionally, enter the currency symbol and block explorer URL for the network.
Step 3: Save the new network Click “Save” to add the new network to MetaMask.
Method 2: Use the “Add to MetaMask” button
Use the Add to MetaMask button to add RPC in 5 seconds.
Step 1: Click on the “Add to MetaMask” button Click on the “Add to MetaMask” button
Step 2: Confirm the details A popup window will appear asking you to confirm the details of the network you’re adding. Review the details carefully and click “Add Network” to confirm.
Step 3: The network will be added automatically The network will be added to MetaMask automatically, and it will be selected as the current network.
Now you should be able to use your MetaMask wallet with the new network seamlessly. However, it’s essential to switch back to the Ethereum network when you’re done using the dApp, or you may accidentally send transactions on the wrong network. We hope this step-by-step guide was helpful in adding custom RPC to your MetaMask wallet.
