TomoChain uses a delegated proof of stake consensus mechanism to create applications for real-world use cases. This blockchain development landscape is host to an array of products and applications running on the TomoChain.
This guide contains a step by step instructions on how you can add TomoChain network to MetaMask wallet.
What is TomoChain & MetaMask?
TomoChain is an innovative solution that supports all EVM-compatible smart contracts, protocols, and atomic cross-chain token transfers. It's an ideal scalable smart-contract public blockchain for decentralized apps, token issuances, and token integrations for small and big businesses. It is comprised of 150 master nodes and functions as a public EVM-compatible blockchain with low transaction fees, fast confirmation time, double validation, and randomization for security guarantees.
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 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 and then add tomo to metamask.
Check the number of downloads to make ensure the legitimate MetaMask is being installed as there are many 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 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 recovery phrase in a safe place).
If you already have a wallet created then log in using MetaMask password.
In order to log in, click on the MetaMask Chrome extension, enter password, and click on “Unlock”.
Step 3: Add TomoChain on MetaMask Wallet
Our final step is to set up the TomoChain on 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 MetaMask wallet interface on a larger screen.
In order to add a new chain network or switch between different blockchain networks, you'll 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 TomoChain to MetaMask Wallet.
Now you should be able to provide all the required TomoChain 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.
TomoChain mainnet info:
Network Name:TomoChain RPC URL: https://rpc.tomochain.com ChainID: 88 Symbol: TOMO Block Explorer: https://tomoscan.io
TomoChain testnet info:
Network Name:TomoChain RPC URL: https://rpc.testnet.tomochain.com ChainID: 89 Symbol: TOMO Block Explorer: https://scan.testnet.tomochain.com
After entering all the required details, simply select “Save”. You will be redirected to your wallet where you will see the TomoChain added.
