How to Add Terra to MetaMask Wallet

You cannot add Terra network to MetaMask, as it's not an EVM compatible chain, but there's an alternative. Read this guide to learn everything.

You cannot add native Terra network to MetaMask crypto wallet.

Terra (LUNA) is not compatible with the EVM (i.e. Ethereum Virtual Machine) network, so it cannot be added directly to the Web 3 wallet.

MetaMask basically supports networks built on Ethereum (ERC 20) network.

However, there are other alternative ways to get your fund out of Terra Station to an EVM supported chain like Arbitrum in MetaMask.

You simply need to bridge between Terra network, and any EVM supported network to get your funds onto MetaMask.

As mentioned earlier, you cannot add native Terra token to MetaMask cryptocurrency wallet.

Alternatively, you can bridge your funds from Terra to Arbitrum, and you will be able to view them in your MetaMask wallet.

In this article, you’ll be guided on how to add Terra token to your MetaMask wallet with simple steps.

Let’s begin…

How to add Terra to MetaMask

To get your Terra token on MetaMask, you will then switch to another blockchain using Synapse protocol.

Follow these steps below to bridge Terra (LUNA) UST token to another blockchain in the time.

  1. Go to Synapse protocol exchange
  2. Select ‘Terra’ and ‘Fantom’ as the networks
  3. Enter the amount of UST token to send
  4. Wait some minutes to see funds in your wallet.

Once the transaction is completed, you will definitely see your cryptocurrency balance in your MetaMask account.

Final words

I will not advise you to invest in the Terra (LUNA), as it’s currently facing issues as at the time of writing.

Just last month Luna was priced at $118, which placed it as the eighth largest token in the crypto market.

However, the price dropped to staggering 95% in a matter of 48 hours, and it saw the worst price tumble-down to $0.09.

The reason being the loss of its UST dollar peg stablecoin, which eventually led to the crash in LUNA prices.

I believe that this brief tutorial have helped you to add UST to MetaMask using the safest process stated above.
