Connecting MetaMask to Zilionixx Network
In this article, we are going to explain how to make use of MetaMask wallet for Zilionixx network.
What is MetaMask?
MetaMask is a software cryptocurrency wallet used to interact with the Ethereum blockchain. It allows users to access their Ethereum wallet through a browser extension or mobile app, which can then be used to interact with decentralized applications. Metamask is one of the most popular wallet so we will describe how to make use of it for Zilionixx networks. (Definition from wikipedia)
But there is much more we can do with MetaMask out of Ethereum.
Let’s see how we can do this with Zilionixx step by step.
MetaMask can be downloaded on Chrome and Firefox, or on iOS and Android if you’re a mobile user. For the purposes of this tutorial, we’ll use the Chrome version, but the instructions will be more or less the same for every platform.
Firstly, you’ll want to head over to the MetaMask Download page. From there, select whichever platform you’re using, and follow the steps to install it on your device. Easy!
Next, follow along with the setup specified by the app. Go ahead and click Create a Wallet. Write down the backup seed phrase somewhere secret (preferably not on an Internet-connected device). Without this phrase, your funds can’t be recovered if your device is damaged or lost. Confirm that you’ve written them down on the next page.
And that’s it! You should now see your wallet, ready to send and receive funds.
Configuring the wallet
You might notice straight away that we’re still dealing with an Ethereum wallet. At best, this won’t work with Zilionixx network DApps. At worst, you could lose funds by sending them to addresses you can’t actually use.
Let’s change that. We want to access the Settings to point the wallet towards Zilionixx network nodes.
On the Settings page, we want to locate the Networks menu.
We want to click Add Network in the top-right corner to manually add the Zilionixx Network — it doesn’t come packaged with MetaMask. It’s important to note that there are two networks we can use here: the mainnet or the testnet. Below are the parameters to fill in for each.
Network Name: Zilionixx Mainnet
New RPC URL: https://rpc1.znxscan.com
Block Explorer URL: https://znxscan.com
Network Name: Zilionixx Testnet
New RPC URL: https://testrpc1.znxscan.com
Block Explorer URL: https://testnet.znxscan.com
We’re going to use the testnet in this tutorial, but you will likely want to use the mainnet. We recommend adding both if you intend to use MetaMask to transfer ZNX or Zilionixx network tokens.
Once you Save the Network and return to the main view, you’ll notice two things: the network has automatically been set to the one you just entered, and the units are no longer denominated in ETH, but in ZNX.
Making transactions (on the testnet)
Don’t let the Ethereum logo fool you — we’ve tuned into the BSC testnet. Next, let’s get some funds to play with. Hover over Account 1, and click to copy your address to the clipboard. We’ll head over to the Zilionixx testnet faucet and paste it into the form.
Click on the Give me ZNX dropdown and select the amount you wish to receive. You might need to wait a couple of minutes, but the funds will show up in your testnet wallet imminently.
To send ZNX to another address click send button and input address you want to send to.
After that you will be redirected to confirm window click confirm button. In a few seconds metamask popup will open to show transaction is successful. You can click that popup to see on testnet block explorer.
Making transactions (on the mainnet)
Congratulations! You understood how to get test ZNX on our faucet and how to make transactions or Zilionixx testnet. Now you probably be curious how to buy Zilionixx Mainnet Native coin. To buy mainnet ZNX coin please refer https://dongletrade.com/buyZNX.
