Add Scroll to MetaMask

In this guide, we outline the best way to add the Scroll zkEVM to your MetaMask Wallet. Get started with their Pre-Alpha Testnet to potentially earn airdrop eligibility.

Summary: The Scroll Layer 2 network can be added to your MetaMask Wallet because it is a zkEVM-based rollup, which means it is natively compatible with Ethereum applications and tools.

The best way to add the Scroll zkEVM to your MetaMask is via the Chainlist app. Chainlist is an EVM-network aggregator that collects the verified Chain ID and RPC information for all major Layer 1 and Layer 2 networks. You can continue reading our guide to learn how to get started in minutes.

Can you add Scroll zkEVM to MetaMask?

Absolutely, Scroll zkEVM, which operates as a zero-knowledge rollup (zk-rollup) for Ethereum, exhibits full compatibility with MetaMask. Its unique design to work with EVM-based applications enhances this interconnection. The procedure for this involves setting up a unique RPC (Remote Procedure Call) URL in your MetaMask wallet that corresponds to the Scroll zkEVM network.

How to Add Scroll to MetaMask

s previously discussed, the most efficient way to link your MetaMask account with the Scroll zkEVM Pre-Alpha Testnet is by connecting the accurate RPC details into your wallet. This process is made significantly easier through the use of Chainlist, a platform that facilitates a straightforward connection to the Scroll Alpha Testnet and Scroll Pre-Alpha Testnet.

Just follow these few easy steps, and you'll be connected instantly:

  1. Visit Chainlist and connect your MetaMask Wallet.
  2. Search for 'Scroll' in the 'Search Networks' bar.
  3. Find which Scroll Testnet you want to join and select 'Add to MetaMask'.

How to Receive Testnet Scroll Tokens

Once you have connected the Scroll zkEVM testnet, you will want to get Scroll faucet tokens to test applications on the network. The best way to do this is directly through the Scroll Faucet, which allows users to request tokens every 24 hours. It is important to remember that Scroll faucet tokens do not have any real value and are for testing purposes only.

What is Scroll?

Scroll is a solution to help scale Ethereum, built using the zkRollup technology. It consists of two main components, the zkEVM which is used to verify the correctness of the EVM execution in Layer 2, and a complete Layer 2 architecture. Currently, Scroll's initial version has a centralized sequencing node and a decentralized proving network, but the sequencing nodes will be decentralized in the future. This architecture helps to increase Ethereum's scalability and can potentially reduce transaction fees.

Bottom Line

In conclusion, Scroll zkEVM, an Ethereum scalability solution built using zkRollup technology, can be seamlessly integrated with your MetaMask wallet. This is done by setting up a unique RPC URL that corresponds to the Scroll zkEVM network. The incorporation process is simplified using Chainlist, a platform that enables direct connection to Scroll's testnets.
