Step 1:Install Metamask on your browser and sign up
To create a new wallet, you have to install MetaMask first. Depending on your browser, there are different marketplaces to find it. In this tutorial, I will be using Google Chrome as an example but the same steps apply to different browsers as well.
If you have downloaded MetaMask, please skip to step 2. If you haven’t, please go to official web page to https://metamask.io/ to download.
Click on “Install MetaMask for Chrome ”to install MetaMask for your browser.
Step 2: Create an account.
After downloading MetaMask, you’ll be prompted to create a password. Enter the password and click “Create”.
Set up your password and recovery phrase(12 words). Please copy these recovery phrase in somewhere safe, and do not tell anyone.
Verify your secret phrase by selecting the previously generated phrase in order. Click Confirm. And that’s it.Now you have created your MetaMask account successfully.
Step 3: Connect to Mainnet and add custom networks
Once you have created the account, you will see that your default network is Ethereum. You can add on other networks by yourself.
Click on your avatar on the top right corner and click on “Settings”. And then click on “Networks”.
And then click on “Add a Network”. You will be asked to fill these fields :
Network Name: PlatON Dev NetworkNew
RPC URL: https://devnetopenapi.platon.network/rpc
Block Explorer URL: https://devnetscan.platon.network/
Take OEC mainnet as an example. Enter all the details as follows and click “Save”.
You have now connected to the network you want with your Metamask Wallet.
