3+ Ways To Add LUNA To Your Metamask Wallet

How To Add LUNA To Metamask

Last updated on June 8th, 2022

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 LUNA on networks that are supported by Metamask (ERC20 and BEP20), as well as wrapped LUNA.

Here’s what you need to know:

How to add LUNA to Metamask on the Ethereum Network

Here are 4 steps to add LUNA to Metamask on the Ethereum Network:

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

How to add Wrapped LUNA to Metamask

Here are 3 steps to add Wrapped LUNA to Metamask:

  1. Go to your Metamask wallet and ensure that you are using the Ethereum Mainnet
  2. Select ‘Import Tokens’, and then search for wrapped LUNA
  3. Confirm the addition of wrapped LUNA to your Metamask wallet

Wrapped LUNA is a bridged version of LUNA that uses the Shuttle Bridge. This is soon to be deprecated, and it is most advisable for you to use this version of LUNA only if you are sending your funds to Coinbase.

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.

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 search for LUNA

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

Metamask Select Import Token Ethereum

On the ‘Search‘ tab, you can search and select wrapped LUNA as the token that you wish to import.

Metamask Search For LUNA

Confirm the addition of wrapped LUNA to your Metamask wallet

The last step you will need to do is to confirm importing wrapped LUNA one more time.

Metamask Confirm LUNA

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

Metamask LUNA Added

This process is similar to adding other tokens, such as RARI or MANA.

Conclusion

LUNA can be added to the ERC20, BEP20, Polygon and Avalanche networks.

If you’d like to send LUNA from Metamask to your Terra Station wallet, you can check out this guide here.

Moreover, wrapped LUNA is an ERC20 token, hence you can deposit LUNA via the ERC20 network to your Metamask Wallet.

You won’t able to add native LUNA which is found on the Terra network, since Metamask does not support this network.

This is because the Terra network is not EVM-compatible.

If you are looking for a decentralised wallet to send native LUNA to, you can consider either the Terra Station wallet, or the Keplr Wallet.
