How to connect Metamask to Plian
MetaMask can be downloaded on Chrome and Firefox, or on iOS and Android if you’re a mobile user. For the purposes of this tutorial, we’ll use the Firefox version, but the instructions will be more or less the same for every platform.
Next, follow along with the setup specified by the app. Go ahead and click Create a Wallet. Write down the backup seed phrase somewhere secret (preferably not on an Internet-connected device). Without this phrase, your funds can’t be recovered if your device is damaged or lost. Confirm that you’ve written them down on the next page.
And that’s it! You should now see your wallet, ready to send and receive funds.
You might notice straight away that we’re still dealing with an Ethereum wallet. At best, this won’t work with Plian network. At worst, you could lose funds by sending them to addresses you can’t actually use.Let’s change that.
We want to access the Custom RPC to point the wallet towards Plian nodes.
On the setting page, we want to locate the Networks menu.
We want to click Add Network in the top-right corner to manually add the Plian one – it doesn’t come packaged with MetaMask. It’s important to note that there are two networks we can use here: the testnet or the mainnet. Below are the parameters to fill in for each.
- Main chain
Network Name: Plian-Mainchain
Network Name: Plian-Subchain1
Network Name: Plian-
We’re going to use the testnet in this tutorial, but you will likely want to use the mainnet. We recommend adding both if you intend to use MetaMask to transfer PI. Once you Save the Network and return to the main view, you’ll notice two things: the network has automatically been set to the one you just entered, and the units are no longer denominated in ETH, but in PI.
