How To Add Tron (TRX) To Metamask

Tron (TRX) is a blockchain-based decentralized platform that aims to build a global digital content entertainment system. Tron’s native token is TRX, which can be used for transactions, voting, storage and running smart contracts on the platform.

What is MetaMask?

MetaMask is an Ethereum-based browser extension that allows users to easily access and manage their cryptocurrency wallets. MetaMask supports Ethereum and its compatible networks, such as Binance Smart Chain (BSC), Polygon and Optimism.

Why do you need to add Tron (TRX) to MetaMask?

If you want to add Tron (TRX) to MetaMask, you might encounter a problem: Tron network is not compatible with Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), which means that you cannot directly add Tron network and TRX token to MetaMask.

So, is there a way to solve this problem? The answer is yes, but you need to do some extra steps. This article will show you how to add Tron (TRX) to MetaMask.

Step 1: Add Binance Smart Chain (BSC) network

Since Tron network is not compatible with EVM, you need to use a compatible network instead, such as Binance Smart Chain (BSC). BSC is a parallel chain launched by Binance, which is fully compatible with Ethereum, and also supports cross-chain transfers.

To add BSC network to MetaMask, you need to open MetaMask extension first, then click on the network selector at the top right corner, and choose “Custom RPC”.

Next, you need to fill in the following information:

After filling in the information, click on “Save” and you will see BSC network added to your MetaMask.

Step 2: Swap TRX for TRC20-TRX

Now that you have added BSC network to your MetaMask, you need to swap your TRX for TRC20-TRX. TRC20-TRX is a token that follows the TRC20 standard on Tron network, which is compatible with EVM and can be transferred across different networks.

To swap your TRX for TRC20-TRX, you need to use a bridge service, such as [JustSwap] or [Binance Bridge]. These services allow you to convert your tokens from one network to another without losing any value.

For example, if you use JustSwap, you need to follow these steps:

Step 3: Add TRC20-TRX token to MetaMask

The last step is to add TRC20-TRX token to your MetaMask. To do this, you need to follow these steps:

Congratulations! You have successfully added Tron (TRX) to MetaMask. You can now use your TRC20-TRX for various purposes, such as trading, staking or participating in DeFi projects. Enjoy!
