How to add a custom RPC network to Metamask

Table of Contents

Latest News

There are now many EVM-compatible networks you can use with MetaMask, all of which must be added to your wallet before you can use them with your existing account. 

List of most popular EVM compatible networks

  1. PulseChain (PLS)
  2. Ethereum (ETH)
  3. Polygon (MATIC)
  4. Binance Smart Chain (BNB)
The initialism RPC stands for remote procedure call, a set of protocols that allow a client (such as MetaMask) to interact with a blockchain. Without going off on a significant technical tangent, adding network details using the process below allows MetaMask to connect to the chosen network, and, in turn, lets you interact with that network.
Also, please note that adding a network on one device does not mean it will appear on another device when accessing the same account. If you add it on Extension, it will not automatically be added to your MetaMask Mobile app, and vice versa.
The following are instructions for establishing these connections manually:
1. Click on the Account button. This will display a list of networks to which you’re already connected:
2. Click ‘Add network’:
3. A new browser tab will open, displaying various fields to fill out:
4. Add any EVM network of your choice. Complete the fields and click save to add the network.
After performing the above steps, you will be able to see the custom network the next time you access the network selector.
