How to Add and Install Sui Wallet
The process to add and install the Sui Wallet to your Chrome Browser is the same user flow as downloading a MetaMask Wallet. The user experience overall also mimics the experience of MetaMask, in that the wallet allows you to send and receive tokens, manage your portfolio and even hold NFTs that are native to Sui.
To get started, you can follow our simple guide below:
- Visit the Sui Wallet Chrome Store and install the browser extension. We recommend using Google Chrome over alternative browsers like Mozilla or Brave.
- Create your account and save your seed phrase.
- Now you're ready to start using the Sui network!
Will MetaMask add support for Sui?
The MetaMask team has not yet announced any plans to support the Sui network. It is unlikely that they will add support for non-EVM chains because MetaMask is built by Conensys, which is the primary investor behind the Ethereum Foundation. It is our view that their primary concern is to continue the proliferation of the EVM programming language while trying to limit the adoption of alternative programming languages like Move or Rust (Solana).
However, if they do decide to add support in the future, we will be sure to update this article accordingly.
Sui is one of the most exciting new blockchains that is created by Mysten Labs who are team of developers based in San Francisco, USA. The platform is highly touted because of the new programming language it uses called 'Move', which is designed to be more performant, scaleable and flexible than the Ethereum Virtual Machine.
