Connecting MetaMask to NELO Smart Chain
Let’s Get Started!
Metamask available on IOS, Android, Chrome and Firefox. After you have chosen your preferred device you want your wallet to be on, head over to their official website here to be redirected to download their software.
After you have selected your preferred option, click on the “Install Metamask...” button.
For browser, navigate to the extension icon along the bar above, once you have successfully downloaded Metamask, click on the icon and “Get Started”.
For mobile users, you will immediately be sent to the step below.
Two options will be presented to you:
- Import wallet: This is for users who already have an existing MetaMask wallet on a different device and would like to import it over to a new one.
- Create a wallet: This is for users who want to set up a brand new MetaMask wallet.
Click on the “Create a wallet” button, and you will be directed to a short disclaimer agreement as well as to create your password for your account. You will be using this password every time you wish to access your Metamask Wallet, so do keep it safe!
- Take a screenshot of it;
- Send it to yourself in an email or;
- Save it as a note on your computer.
Anything digital that’s stored on your computer is accessible to hackers – protect your assets by writing it down on a piece of paper.
Next, your Secret Recovery Phrase:
MetaMask will prompt you to type in the 12-word sequence assigned to you, before you can move on. The backup seed phrase should be written down somewhere secret (preferably not on an Internet-connected device). In the event that your device is damaged or lost, you won't be able to recover your funds. Verify that you've written them down on the next page. It's that simple! Your wallet should appear now, ready for you to send and receive funds.
Configuring your Wallet
Select Settings from the dropdown menu.
On the Settings page, locate the Networks menu.
Click Add Network in the top-right corner to add the NELO Smart Chain to your list of networks.
Network Name: NSC - Testnet
New RPC URL: https://rpc.nelo.network
Block Explorer URL: https://analysis.nelo.network
Once you click Save, and return to the main view, there will be two things that are different: the network has automatically been set to the one you have just entered, and the units are no longer denominated in ETH, but in NELO.
And you’re all set! MetaMask is one of the fastest and most secure way to connect to blockchain-based applications. This method lets you connect to the new, decentralized web with full control.
