In the process of creating the wallet, you need to choose a password and memorize a recovery phrase.

Finally, log in to your MetaMask wallet by entering your password and clicking “Unlock”.

2. Add a new network

After logging into your MetaMask wallet, you need to add a new network.

The Fantom network (FTM) is not on MetaMask.

Then, you need to add it manually to send and receive FTM.

To add a new network on MetaMask, you must first click on the network drop-down box.

By default, the “Ethereum Mainnet” network will be selected.

Click the “Ethereum Mainnet” drop-down box to see a list of networks.

After providing the details of the Fantom network and adding them, the network will automatically switch to “Fantom Opera”.

This is also known as the Fantom mainnet network.

You can see your current network by looking at the network drop-down box.

If the drop-down box of the network is “Fantom Opera”, it means that you are using the Fantom network.

You have successfully added Fantom (FTM) to MetaMask!

Now you will be able to send and receive FTM.

If you wish to receive FTM, please make sure that the “Fantom Opera” network is selected and copy your address.
