Setup MetaMask For Etho Protocol
To use MetaMask with ETHO (Main network) or ETHO HC (Test network) you can install a browser extension from the appropriate app store for your particular browser. For this example, we will be using the chrome version. You can find the chrome application here:
Chrome App Store - MetaMask
After Installing the MetaMask browser extension, you will need to go through the following setup process:
- 1.When prompted, press continue.
- 2.Create a strong password to use with MetaMask. (You can also import an existing wallet with the seed phrase, to restore an existing account.)
- 3.After creating a password, you will be shown your account image, and then you will be prompted to accept the MetaMask Terms & Conditions along with a privacy notice and a statement on phishing.
- 4.Following acceptance of all the various terms, you will be prompted to backup your recovery seed. The page includes information on the best practices to follow when backing up the recovery seed.
- 5.You will then need to confirm the backup phrase:
- 6.You have now successfully installed MetaMask. You will now need to configure MetaMask so that it knows how to access the Etho Protocol blockchain. To do so, open the MetaMask extension; click the circle in the top-right corner and scroll down to click the "settings" link; scroll down to "Networks" and click the button to add a new network. It will open a new browser tab and ask you for the following information for the main net:Network Name: Etho Protocol NEW RPC URL: https://rpc.ethoprotocol.com/ Chain ID: 0x14095a Currency Symbol: ETHO Block Explorer URL: https://explorer.ethoprotocol.com/
Etho Protocol's Chain ID is: 1313114 Metamask did recently update, and might require ChainID in hex: 0x14095a
Once the custom RPC value is put in above, you will see the ETHO balance of your imported account
If you want to use the ETHO hypercube test network you want to set it up with the following parameters Network Name: Etho HC Testnet NEW RPC URL: https://testnetrpc.ethoprotocol.com/ Chain ID: 27292 Currency Symbol: ETHO Block Explorer URL: https://testnetexplorer.ethoprotocol.com/
