Configuring Metamask for the Public Mint blockchain

Learn how to set up Metamask to connect to the Public Mint blockchain.

WARNING: DO NOT send ETH or ERC-20 tokens directly from Ethereum to Public Mint, and DO NOT send assets directly from Public Mint to Ethereum. You may LOSE YOUR FUNDS!

As more development activity takes place in the Public Mint blockchain, we strive to make familiar tools accessible to everyone.

In this quick guide, we explain how to configure Metamask for the Public Mint blockchain so you can have yet another option to access our network.

What is Metamask?

Metamask is a popular Ethereum wallet and perhaps the most widely used gateway to interact with decentralized applications across the Ethereum blockchain (and many others, like BSC, RSK, xDAI, etc).

The Public Mint blockchain is based on Ethereum and fully EVM-compatible, and thus you can configure Metamask to interact with any DApps that run on Public Mint.

What can I use Metamask for?

Metamask has basic wallet functionality, meaning you can send, receive and store tokens.

But perhaps most importantly, Metamask allows you to interact with DApps that run on top of the blockchain, (like decentralized exchanges, marketplaces, or any other smart-contract-based application) securely spending or receiving assets.

Configuring Metamask for the Public Mint Mainnet

1. Install the Metamask extension on your browser. Make sure you’re downloading it from a legitimate source (like the Chrome Web Store) and that the developer is metamask.io

2. Click on the fox icon at your browser’s toolbar. Create a wallet if you haven’t got one yet. Choose a strong password and make sure you store the seed words somewhere safe.

3. Click on the network name on the top drop-down link.

4. Scroll down to the bottom of the list and select the “Custom RPC” option.

5. Under Network, fill the form with the following details:

Network Name => Public Mint Mainnet
New RPC URL => https://rpc.publicmint.io:8545/
Chain ID => 2020
Currency Symbol => USD
Block Explorer URL => https://explorer.publicmint.io/

6. Save your selection and click the Add network button to finish.

That’s it! You’ve successfully configured Metamask to use with the Public Mint Mainnet blockchain.

How to add the MINT token to Metamask on the Public Mint blockchain

Next, if you own (or intend to own) MINT tokens in the Public Mint blockchain mainnet, you might want to add them to Metamask so you can see your balance and transfer them to other addresses.

To do that, simply click on the Add Token button, and in the following address at the Token Contract Address field. The other fields should auto-populate with the token symbol and decimals.

0xC312642DaD4490D7f351391b85488d34778E9667

Click Next and then you’re done! Easy, right?

Now you can use Metamask to send and receive USD or MINT within the Public Mint blockchain, as well as to interact with upcoming web3 DApps that may be launched!
