The fusion public blockchain is majorly responsible for creating an inclusive crypto-financial platform by providing cross-chain, cross-organization, and cross-data source smart contracts.
This guide contains step-by-step instructions on how you can add FSN to your MetaMask wallet.
What is Fusion & MetaMask?
Fusion (FSN) is a blockchain-based financial platform that offers cross-chain, cross-organization, and cross-data source services through smart contracts. With the use of Hierarchical Hybrid Consensus Mechanism (HHCM), it combines elements from PoW, PoS, and parallel computing with the goal of creating an efficient and safe platform. Fusion’s blockchain is optimized for easy on-chain applications developed by offering a wide variety of tools like quantum swap and time lock functions.
MetaMask on the other hand is one of the most widely-used Wallets. You can send, receive, and manage tokens and cryptocurrencies from Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, and other blockchains. With MetaMask, you can store NFTs, crypto art, and other crypto collectibles. Its browser extension is compatible with Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Brave.
Step 1: Install MetaMask Extension on Chrome
This step is only for those who don't have MetaMask installed in your browser. For the purpose of this guide, we are using Chrome browser as an example but the principle steps are similar when installing MetaMask in other browsers.
Check the number of downloads to make ensure the right MetaMask is being installed, as there are plenty of fake MetaMask wallets.
Click the Add to Chrome button & you should have your wallet installed.
Once you’ve installed, MetaMask will appear as an extension and can easily be accessed through “Settings” on Google Chrome where you can pin the wallet extension for ease of access.
Step 2: Login to your MetaMask Wallet
If you are new to MetaMask, create a wallet after installing MetaMask which will require you to choose a password and store a recovery phrase (Make sure to store your recovery phrase in a safe place).
If you already have a wallet created then log in using your MetaMask password.
In order to log in, click on the MetaMask Chrome extension, enter your password, and click on “Unlock”.
Step 3: Set up FSN network on MetaMask Wallet
Our final step is to set up the Fusion network on your MetaMask wallet after you're logged in. Open the MetaMask wallet on a new browser tab by simply clicking on the MetaMask logo on the top right extension area.
Click the three dots in the top-right and select the “Expand view”.
By clicking on “Expand view” you will be able to interact with your MetaMask wallet interface on a larger screen.
In order to add a new chain network or switch between different blockchain networks, you will need to click on the network tab which by default will show "Ethereum Mainnet" on the top right-hand corner.
Click on Add Network in order to add Fusion network to your MetaMask Wallet.
Now you should be able to provide all the required Fusion network details.
This includes the network name, new RPC URL, chain ID, currency symbol, and block explorer URL. Simply copy and paste the required chain info from below.
Fusion mainnet info
Network Name: Fusion New RPC URL: https://fsn.dev/api Chain ID: 32659 Currency Symbol (Optional): FSN Block Explorer URL (Optional): https://blocks.fusionnetwork.io
Fusion testnet info:
Network Name: Fusion New RPC URL: https://testnet.fsn.dev/api Chain ID: 46688 Currency Symbol (Optional): FSN Block Explorer URL (Optional): https://testnetapi.fusionnetwork.io
After entering all the required details, simply select “Save”. You will be redirected to your wallet where you will see the Fusion network added.
