Configuring metamask for polygon network

Metamask is very popular wallet to interact with DApps based on ethereum bockchain. This blog will help you set up polygon network on metamask , so lets get started .

First we need to install Metamask extension for your browser and set up an account.

As you can see we are now on ethereum mainnet.

In the networks tab you can add/remove networks.

So here we will click on add network which will create new network with empty parameters like network name, RPC url, chain ID etc.

We will fill those inputs with polygon's configuration like given below,


1) Polygon Mainnet

Network Name: Matic Mainnet

New RPC URL: https://rpc-mainnet.maticvigil.com/

ChainID: 137

Symbol: MATIC

Block Explorer URL: https://polygonscan.com/

2) Polygon Testnet

Network Name: Matic Mumbai

New RPC URL: https://rpc-mumbai.maticvigil.com/

ChainID: 80001

Symbol: MATIC

Block Explorer URL: https://mumbai.polygonscan.com/

Once you Save the Network and return to the main view, you’ll notice network has automatically been set to the one you just entered with this polygon network has been successfully added on our Metamask.
