PulseChain is a state copy of Ethereum, and you own there all the tokens and NFTs that you had on Ethereum. If you’re confused about how to view these assets and start trading them on a chain with super cheap gas, then read this guide.
Which assets do I own on PulseChain
PulseChain is a state copy of Ethereum, which means that all smart contracts and balances have been copied over and are now also on PulseChain. Everything you had on Ethereum before the snapshot, which took place on May 10, is in your possession on PulseChain, and you already have the key to these tokens.
The only thing you need to do to view them is change the network settings in your wallet from Ethereum to PulseChain and import the tokens to your wallet.
If you had ETH on Ethereum, now you’ll see PLS. This is the only name change that occurred.
All other tokens retain their names unless their contracts have been deployed again.
How to add PulseChain to Metamask
To change the network from Ethereum to PulseChain, you need to go and add PulseChain manually.
- Press on the Ethereum Main Network
2. Add network
3. Add a network manually
4. Fill in all the fields with PulseChain specs and confirm. These specs can be also found on Pulsechain.com
How to add tokens
Once you’re connected to PulseChain, you can view your assets. If you know you had some tokens on Ethereum, then you will need to look for their contract address on etherscan.io and then copy and paste it into MetaMask.
- Go to Import tokens
That’s it. It’s that simple. Now you should see that token balance in your wallet.
How to add NFTs
Similarly to tokens, your NFTs can also be accessed from PulseChain. You need to add them manually.
You’ll need to add the contract address of the collection and the token ID of your NFT.
Let’s see how to do it based on XENFTs.
If you have them in your wallet, you can switch back to Ethereum and take the contract address and token ID from there. If not, you can copy it from xen.network. Fill in the fields, and that’s it.
For all other NFTs you hold, you can go to etherscan.io or OpenSea and look for your collection, but the token ID you’ll need to find manually by looking at your address.
Simply paste in your address to etherscan.io and go to the NFT transfers tab. You’ll be able to view all your NFTs.
You can extract the contract address of each NFT collection as well as the token ID from inside the transaction.
