How to Add Evmos to MetaMask
As outlined above, the Evmos blockchain can be easily added to your MetaMask Wallet because it is an Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatible network built with the solidity programming language. We recommend using the Chainlist App to add the network to your wallet, because it aggregates the verified Chain ID and RPC endpoints to make sure you're connecting to the right chain.
You can follow this simple 3 step process to get started:
- Go to ChainList and connect your MetaMask Wallet.
- Look for 'Evmos' in the search bar at the top of the page.
- Tap 'Add to MetaMask' and the verified Evmos RPC information will be automatically added to your extension.
What is Evmos?
Evmos is a blockchain platform that provides an EVM-compatible environment for the development and deployment of decentralized applications and smart contracts. The platform is built on top of the Cosmos SDK, a modular and scalable blockchain development framework. This allows Evmos to benefit from the robust and flexible architecture of the Cosmos SDK, while also providing compatibility with the Ethereum ecosystem
By being EVM-compatible, Evmos enables developers to leverage the tools, resources, and community of the Ethereum ecosystem to build decentralized applications. Moreover, the compatibility with the Cosmos SDK allows Evmos to provide a scalable and secure blockchain infrastructure that can support the demands of decentralized applications.
In summary, Evmos provides a bridge between the Ethereum ecosystem and the Cosmos SDK, enabling developers to take advantage of the best of both worlds in building decentralized applications and smart contracts.
What are Popular Applications on Evmos?
Evmos is host to a diverse range of Decentralized Finance (DeFi) applications, which you can find a full list of on Defillama. Some of the most popular applications by Total Value Locked (TVL) include Diffusion Finance, EvmoSwap, Connext, Kinesis Labs and Earnmos.
If you're looking to access the Evmos network quickly, then adding it to your MetaMask wallet is the best way to go. Using the Chainlist App, you can easily add verified RPC information for Ethereum-based chains like Evmos directly into your extension.
