Can I add Fantom to MetaMask Wallet?
Yes, you can add the Fantom Network to your MetaMask wallet because it is an Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatible blockchain. This means that the Fantom Network uses the same programming language called 'Solidity' to build applications on their blockchain.
How to add Fantom to MetaMask
Adding Fantom to your MetaMask account is simple and can be done in 4 easy steps:
- Download the MetaMask Wallet onto your Chrome or Mozilla browser.
- Click on your MetaMask browser extension and select 'Add Networks'.
- Add the verified Fantom RPC details onto this page (find this information in the paragraph below).
- Confirm the Fantom RPC details and add the network to start using the Fantom blockchain.
Fantom RPC Details
The RPC details for Fantom that you need to add to your MetaMask are as follows:
- Network Name: Fantom Opera
- RPC Url: https://rpc.ftm.tools/
- ChainID: 250
- Symbol: FTM
- Block Explorer URL: https://ftmscan.com/
Fantom is a decentralised network that provides instant transaction speed and scalable dApp development. The Fantom Foundation was founded in 2018 by Michael Kong, Dr. Ahn Byung Ik, and Dr. James Ahn. Fantom uses the Lachesis consensus protocol and operates on a Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) ledger.
The key difference between Fantom and other blockchains is that it uses DAG technology instead of blockchain technology. With DAG, each new transaction confirms two previous transactions, which allows for much faster transaction speeds than traditional blockchains.
Fantom also has its own programming language, called FantomFlow. FantomFlow is designed to be easy to use for developers of all levels of experience. This programming language is compatible with Ethereum's native programming language Solidity, which means applications are portable across both chains.
Fantom is a powerful, scalable, and fast blockchain that can be added to your MetaMask wallet. It provides developers with an efficient way to build and deploy dApps on its network. Adding the Fantom Network to your MetaMask Wallet is easy and straightforward and will allow you to interact with dApps built on the Fantom Network.
