How to add the xDai sidechain to Metamask


To use the xDai sidechain and perform transactions on xDai, we need to add the xDai sidechain network to Metamask. The xDai sidechain is a network seperate from ethereum, and therefore Metamask needs to know which URLs to use to send transactions and get info from.


Adding a New Network

  • Open Metamask
  • Click on your user icon on the top right
  • Click "Settings"
  • Click "Networks"
  • Click "Add Network" at the bottom
