MetaMask is one of the most essential tools in the blockchain game and crypto assets.

MetaMask is used in many platforms, such as blockchain games, because it is very convenient and easy to send, receive, and store cryptographic assets.

TJ

On the other hand, for those who are not accustomed to using it, it is difficult to know where to touch.

By default, MetaMask can only be used with ETH (Ethereum), but additional settings can be made to support other chains (currencies).

TJ

Of course, the Avalanche chain used for many games is no exception.

Examples of games in which the ◯Avalanche chain is used
SleeFi
Cradaba
Step App
Defi Kingdoms
MetaDerby

Therefore, we will explain how to add the Avalanche chain to MetaMask, using a diagram.

What is MetaMask?

MetaMask is a crypto asset management tool available as an extension or app for Internet browsers (Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.).

Since its release in 2016, its ease of use and the crypto-asset boom have made it quickly popular around the world.

TJ

The fact that MetaMask is free to start using is also considered a factor that has lowered the hurdle to using the system.

Another key feature of MetaMask is the ability to exchange crypto assets with well-known crypto asset exchanges such as Coincheck and BINANCE.

TJ

Once you are comfortable with MetaMask, you will be able to start playing many games with it.

How to register a MetaMask

Metamask is very useful, but you need to register MetaMask to use it.

In addition to various browsers, there is also an app version ( AppStore/Google Play ), but this article describes the most user-friendly Google Chrome screen.

TJ

There are many fake MetaMask products on the market, and if you install them by mistake, you may lose information or bring your entire virtual currency.

So be sure to install MetaMask via the official page.

TJ

I hear the fake MetaMask is a faithful reproduction of the real thing, so watch out!

Next, set a password for MetaMask login.

TJ

Passwords are very important, so let’s proceed with increased attention.

STEP
Enter password

Enter the password you wish to use (enter the same characters in the lower row) and check [ ]. I have read and agree to the terms of use Check [ ] and click [ ]. Create Click [ ].

TJ

If your password is correct, you can proceed.

STEP
Check the video

After that, an explanation video will appear that says, “Recovery phrases are important things that no one can tell.”

Once you understand the importance of the password and recovery phrase, click [ Next ].

Metamask7

What is a “recovery phrase”?
The recovery phrase is a “master key” to your wallet (account) and funds.
If it is lost or leaked, the funds cannot be withdrawn or will be stolen.
So, let’s manage it strictly.

The recovery phrase is required at the following timings.

When the computer you are currently using is initialized
When logging into MetaMask from a terminal other than the one used for registration

TJ

If you forget, you will never be able to log in again under any circumstances.

Therefore, it is recommended to leave it not only in the computer but also on the cloud, notebook, memo paper, etc.

*Basically, I recommend that you keep it on paper in a place where you will never forget/lose it.

STEP
Save backup phrase

Display the password. After writing down the backup phrase (=recovery phrase), click [Next]. Click [Next].

Metamask8
STEP
Place backup phrase

If there is no problem entering the backup phrase, proceed to the next.

At the end, there is a description about the importance of passwords, so let’s check it.

TJ

Click [Complete] to complete opening a MetaMask account.

Note that since you will be using MetaMask more often in the future, it is convenient to pin it for immediate operation.

Pinning can be set by the following procedure.

Click on the extension button (puzzle mark) in the upper right corner of the Chrome browser.
Check that the MetaMask item appears.
Click on the pin button on the right side of the screen
When the “Fix” button turns blue, you are done.

[Caution! ] A scam to find out the recovery phrase

Anyone with a recovery phrase is free to move the funds in MetaMask.

So, try to get the recovery phrase out of them. There are a lot of scams out there.

Main fraudulent methods
Claiming to be the operator of MetaMask or trying to create a website that looks just like MetaMask to get you to fill out the form.
Attempting to get a recovery phrase from someone pretending to be at the support desk
They ask me to give them a recovery phrase as they transfer the money to my account in an airdrop campaign (free distribution of crypto assets).

We are aiming for recovery phrases by all means.

Never tell anyone whatever happens!

TJ

If you have the time and wisdom to do that, I wish you’d spend it on something different!

How to add an Avalanche chain to a MetaMask

TJ

Now that MetaMask is in place, let’s proceed with adding the Avalanche chain.

To do this, click on “Ethereum Main Net” on the MetaMask Home screen, and then click on “Add Network”.

You will then be asked to enter each piece of information.

TJ

Please enter the following information in the respective fields.
To avoid mistakes, we recommend photocopying.

スクロールできます
Network Name Avalanche Mainnet C-Chain
New RPC URL https://api.avax.network/ext/bc/C/rpc
Chain ID 0xa86a
Currency Symbol AVAX
Blockchain Explorer URL https://cchain.explorer.avax.network/
TJ

Once successfully added, the Avalanche chain will appear as shown in the following screen.

Notes on the Avalanche chain

Once you have followed the steps outlined so far to add the Avalanche chain, you will be able to transfer AVAX to your MetaMask account.

TJ

There is one caveat here.
There are three types of Avalanche chains (networks), and if the wrong type is selected, the funds that should have been transferred will disappear.

Types of Avalanche Chains
C-Chain: Contract Chain
X-Chain: Exchange Chain
P-Chain: Platform Chain

TJ

Only “C-Chain” can communicate with MetaMask.
Be careful when sending money!

Add the Avalanche chain to MetaMask and enjoy the game!

In this article, we summarize how to add the Avalanche chain used in many games to MetaMask.

TJ

Those who have never touched MetaMask before and had some resistance to it may have found it easier than expected.

You can also add non-Avalanche chains to the MetaMask.

See this article for information on how to add other chains.
