How to add Klaytn to MetaMask
As outline above, the best way to add the Klaytn network to your MetaMask Wallet is with the ChainList app. Their platform helps users safely connect to EVM powered blockchains by aggregating all of the verified RPC information and allowing you to join networks at the click of a button.
You can get started in 3 simple steps:
- Visit the ChainList website.
- Search for "Klaytn" in the 'Search Networks' tab.
- Find the Klaytn Mainnet Cyprus network and click 'Add to MetaMask'. It will be automatically added to your wallet.
What is Klaytn?
Klaytn is a public blockchain platform developed by Ground X, a subsidiary of the South Korean internet giant Kakao. It is designed to provide high performance and scalability for decentralized applications (dApps) and services. Klaytn features a consensus algorithm called "BFT-DPoS" which combines elements of both the Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT) and Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) algorithms, and aims to provide fast transaction processing and low energy consumption. It also has a governance system that allows for community participation in decision-making for the network.
Is MetaMask safe?
MetaMask is a popular browser extension for interacting with decentralized applications (dApps) that are written in the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) programming language called Solidity. It is considered a safe and secure way to manage your EVM wallet and interact with dApps & networks like Klaytn, but it is important to keep in mind that, like any cryptocurrency wallet, it is only as safe as the user makes it.
It is crucial to keep your MetaMask seed phrase (also known as a recovery phrase or private key) secure and not share it with anyone.Using MetaMask on a secure computer and keeping it updated with the latest version can also enhance the security of your funds. And you should also avoid storing large amount of funds in MetaMask, as it is a hot wallet, which means it is connected to the internet and can be more vulnerable to hacking attempts.
Adding the Klaytn Mainnet to your MetaMask Wallet is a simple process, and ChainList makes it even easier. Once you have added the network successfully, you can interact with dApps on Klaytn as well as send and receive funds in KLAY tokens. As always, keep your seed phrase safe and be sure to stay updated with the latest version of MetaMask to ensure the security of your funds.
