You may have bought some LUNA and are looking to add it to your Metamask wallet.
However, Metamask does not support the Terra network, so you will not be able to add native LUNA to your wallet.
Instead, you are only able to add wrapped LUNA (the ERC20 version) to your Metamask wallet, and here’s how you can do so:
How to add LUNA to Metamask
Here are 3 steps to add LUNA to Metamask:
- Go to your Metamask wallet and ensure that you are using the Ethereum Mainnet
- Select ‘Import Tokens’, and then search for LUNA
- Confirm the addition of LUNA to your Metamask wallet
And here is each step explained in detail:
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.
This is the default network for all Metamask wallets. However, you are also able to connect Metamask to other blockchain networks, such as:
As such, do remember to be on the Ethereum Mainnet before moving on to the next step.
Select ‘Import Tokens’, and then search for LUNA
Once you’re on the Ethereum Mainnet, the next step will be to select ‘Import Tokens‘.
On the ‘Search‘ tab, you can search and select LUNA as the token that you wish to import.
Alternatively, you can go to the ‘Custom Token‘ section.
you can paste it in the ‘Token Contract Address‘ field in Metamask.
If you pasted the correct contract address, LUNA should automatically appear as the Token Symbol.
Confirm the addition of LUNA to your Metamask wallet
The last step you will need to do is to confirm importing LUNA one more time.
Once you’ve successfully imported LUNA to your Metamask wallet, you should see it as one of your assets under the Ethereum Mainnet.
However, you aren’t able to add native LUNA which is found on the Terra network, since Metamask does not support this network.
