It's no news that blockchain networks capable of running smart contracts are the most requested in the cryptocurrency market. In this sense, the Ethereum network is still the most used in this field. However, new networks have gained more and more space due to the very high fees of the Ethereum network, which makes it an unfeasible network for a large number of people.
In today's post we bring you a step-by-step guide so you can use one of these new networks in your Metamask: the Fantom network. This is a network that has very cheap gas rates, practically non-existent, and is capable of carrying out up to 36,000 transactions per second. But then, let's go step by step?
- On the initial screen of your Metamask wallet, click where the current connected network is shown, as in the image below:
- After following the previous step, click on “add network”:
- Finally, enter the following information in the appropriate fields:
Network Name: Fantom Opera
RPC Url: https://rpc.ftm.tools/
Block Explorer URL: https://ftmscan.com/
After following all these steps, click “save” and that's it, your Metamask is ready to go use the Fantom network.
Well, that's today's post. We hope we helped and we look forward to seeing you next time!
As with other smart contract networks, Fantom can be used by bad actors who can create scam tokens just to drain user funds. This post has the simple objective of informing you, if you want to invest in tokens from the Fantom network, it is recommended that you do your own research and make your decision to invest or not based on the results obtained.
