WAGMI is a play-to-earn game drawing on the crypto-specific internet meme that stands for “We’re all going to make it”. A term promoted by NFT communities to encourage positivity.

In this guide, we walk you through how you can add WAGMI to your MetaMask wallet.

What is WAGMI & MetaMask?

WAGMI is an ERC20 token built on the Ethereum network. It represents the WAGMI community as a whole and the beliefs for which they stand. This project is a collection of React Hooks containing various Ethereum use cases. WAGMI enables Wallet connection, display ENS, and, interaction with smart contracts.

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, WAGMI network 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 their browser. For the purpose of this guide, we are using Chrome browser as an example but the principle steps are same when installing MetaMask in other browsers.

You can install the MetaMask using the official website or go directly to google chrome web store

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.
