The SNT is a native token of Nova blockchain network.

Nova blockchain is an open programmable smart contract platform built for decentralized applications.

It’s used to build fast, scalable, and low-cost Solidity compatible dApps, for both enterprise and retailers.

It is home to decentralized infrastructure and applications, built to scale global usage and adoption.

It is compatible with Solidity, Ethereum, and other EVM networks.

It’s easy and fast for developers to build, deploy, or fork from existing infrastructure built on other networks.

It’s a low supply and scarce asset used for usage fees, to secure public ledgers, and as a means of exchange.

In this guide, you’ll see how to add Nova network to your MetaMask crypto wallet account safely.

Let’s begin…

How to add SNT network to MetaMask

In this tutorial, we’ll use Chrome browser extension as guide, but the principle steps are almost the same for other devices.

We’re also assuming that you have the wallet already installed, otherwise, you can install the MetaMask using the official website.

Once you’ve installed MetaMask extension, you can access the wallet through ‘Settings’ on your Google Chrome browser.

  1. Create MetaMask wallet account

    Open the MetaMask and create a wallet account with your preferred password by clicking on the Fox icon.

  2. Login into your MetaMask wallet

    Click the Fox icon to open the MetaMask wallet, then input your password to login into your account.

    In order to log in, click on the MetaMask Chrome extension, enter your password, and click on ‘Unlock’.

  3. Add Nova network to MetaMask

    Open the MetaMask wallet on a new browser tab by simply clicking on the MetaMask Fox logo on the top right extension area.

    Click the three dots in the top-right and select the ‘Expand view’ to interact with your MetaMask wallet interface on a larger screen.

    In order to add a new chain network or switch between different blockchain, you will need to click on the network tab.

    Click on ‘Add Network’ option to add Nova blockchain network RPC details to your MetaMask wallet.

Nova chain RPC details

Now you should be able to provide all the required Nova network details, which includes network name, new RPC URL, chain ID, currency symbol, and block explorer URL.

Simply copy and paste the required chain info from below…

Nova mainnet details

Network Name: Nova Network         
New RPC URL: https://connect.novanetwork.io         
ChainID: 87             
Symbol: SNT              
Block Explorer URL: https://explorer.novanetwork.io 

Nova testnet details

Network Name: Arbitrium Nova       
New RPC URL: https://nova.arbitrum.io/rpc        
ChainID: 42170              
Symbol: ETH              
Block Explorer URL: https://nova-explorer.arbitrum.io/

After entering all required details, simply click the ‘Save’ to store these information, and be redirected to your wallet where you will see the added network.

Rounding up

Adding Nova (SNT) chain network to MetaMask wallet is quite easy, but is normally done manually.

However, it’s possible to add the network to your MetaMask account automatically using Chainlist website.

MetaMask is among one of the best cryptocurrency wallet for Ethereum network, but still not enough to maintain your privacy.

If you want to remain anonymous while saving your crypto investment, I would advice you to use a reliable VPN (Virtual Private Network) service.

I hope this guide helped you to add Nova network chain to your MetaMask wallet account easily.
