Can you Add Nibiru to MetaMask?
Unfortunately, Nibiru and MetaMask are not compatible with each other directly because they operate on essentially different technologies. Nibiru utilizes its proprietary Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) protocol to function within the Cosmos ecosystem. It doesn’t work on the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), which is MetaMask’s primary infrastructure.
How to Add Nibiru to an Alternative Wallet
Keplr is the best option available for the Nibiru Chain and is the wallet of choice for all chains that have Cosmos SDK enabled.
Here are the steps to add Nibiru to Keplr Wallet:
- Visit the Keplr website and select “Install Keplr”.
- Choose the device you want to install the wallet on, such as Chrome, Firefox, iOS, or Android.
- Complete the onboarding process and securely save your seed phrase offline.
- Connect to Nibiru Chain: visit Nibiru’s Web App (app.nibiru.fi) and connect your wallet.
What is Nibiru Chain?
The Nibiru Chain represents a groundbreaking L1 blockchain and smart contract ecosystem that boasts exceptional throughput and unmatched security. Nibiru is committed to becoming the most developer-friendly and user-centric smart contract ecosystem, spearheading the drive towards widespread adoption of Web3 by introducing innovations across various layers of the stack, including dApp development, infrastructure, consensus, a comprehensive developer toolkit, and value accrual.
Having emerged from stealth mode in late 2022, numerous projects have embarked on building on the Nibiru platform, spanning diverse sectors such as DeFi, gaming, real-world assets, NFTs, developer tools, and bridges. Each of these projects shares a common goal of ensuring that interactions with digital assets are rapid, secure, and user-friendly for all.
In summary, because the Nibiru Chain is built on the Cosmos SDK and does not support EVM compatibility, it cannot seamlessly integrate with MetaMask. Users are advised to explore alternative options such as Keplr or Leap. We will update compatible hardware wallets later.
