How To Add KNC To Metamask

Last updated on February 4th, 2022

If you are looking to add KNC to your Metamask wallet, you may first want to check whether you are adding the KNC version 2, or the legacy version (KNCL).

This is because the older version of KNC (KNCL) can only be added to the Ethereum network, while new KNC (KNC v2) can be added to Ethereum, Polygon, and the Binance Smart Chain.

Here’s what you need to know:

How to add KNC to Metamask on the Ethereum network

Here are 4 steps to add KNC to Metamask on the Ethereum network:

  1. Go to Metamask and ensure that you are using the Ethereum Mainnet
  2. Select ‘Import Tokens’, and then ‘Import Custom Token’
  3. Copy the Ethereum contract from CoinMarketCap
  4. Double check that KNC is detected and select ‘Add Custom Token’

Here is each step explained in-depth:

Go to Metamask and ensure that you are using the Ethereum Mainnet

The first thing you’ll need to do is to ensure that you are using the Ethereum Mainnet on Metamask.

Metamask Select Ethereum Mainnet

This is the default network for all Metamask wallets. However, you are also able to connect Metamask to other blockchain networks, such as:

  1. Polygon
  2. Fantom
  3. Binance Smart Chain
  4. Avalanche

As such, do remember to be on the Ethereum Mainnet before moving on to the next step.

Select ‘Import Tokens’, and then ‘Import Custom Token’

Once you’re on the Ethereum Mainnet, the next step will be to select ‘Import Tokens‘.

Metamask Select Import Token Ethereum

If you try to search for KNC using the Search function, you will only view the old KNC (KNCL).

Metamask Add KNCL Search

If you want to add the new KNC (KNC v2), you will need to go to the ‘Custom Token‘ section.

Metamask Select Import Custom Token

Copy the Ethereum contract from CoinMarketCap

For the next part, you can go to the KNC page on CoinMarketCap.

I prefer using CoinMarketCap to obtain the contract address, as it is one of the most reliable sites with regards to cryptocurrencies.

It is important that you ensure that the site where you’re obtaining the contract address from is a credible source!

There is a section called ‘Contracts‘, where you’ll see the Ethereum contract for KNC.

KNC CoinMarketCap Contract

If you click on ‘More‘, you can view the Polygon and Binance Smart Chain (BEP20) contract addresses too.

You can click on the contract and it will be copied to your clipboard.

Double check that KNC is detected and select ‘Add Custom Token’

Once you’ve copied the Contract Address, you can paste it in the ‘Token Contract Address‘ field in Metamask.

Metamask KNC Autofill

If you pasted the correct contract address, KNC should automatically appear as the Token Symbol.

After selecting ‘Add Custom Token‘, you will need to confirm importing KNC one more time.

Metamask KNC Import

Once you’ve successfully imported KNC to your Metamask wallet, you should see it as one of your assets under the Ethereum Mainnet.

Metamask KNC Added

This will allow you to view any KNC that you’ve deposited via the ERC20 network!

If you want to add KNC to the Polygon network or the Binance Smart Chain, you can follow the same steps too.

Conclusion

The new KNC (KNC v2) can be added to Ethereum, Polygon or the Binance Smart Chain. Meanwhile, the old KNC (KNCL) can be added only to the Ethereum network.

It’d be good to see which token you intend to add to your Metamask wallet before you select the contract!

After adding and receiving your tokens to your Metamask wallet, you can consider using decentralised exchange (DEX) aggregators, including:

Since both platforms are DeFi aggregators, they will ensure that you will get the best rates for any swaps that you make!
