You may be looking to transfer your SLP tokens to your Metamask wallet.
The process of adding SLP is much easier, as you do not need to add it as a custom token like OHM.
Here’s a guide to help you get started.
How to add SLP to Metamask
Here are 3 steps to add SLP to Metamask:
- Go to Metamask and ensure that you are using the Ethereum Mainnet
- Select ‘Import Tokens’, and then search for SLP
- Confirm the addition of SLP to your Metamask wallet
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 SLP
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 SLP as the token that you wish to import.
Alternatively, you can go to the ‘Custom Token‘ section.
After copying the Ethereum contract from CoinMarketCap,
you can paste it in the ‘Token Contract Address‘ field in Metamask.
If you pasted the correct contract address, SLP should automatically appear as the Token Symbol.
Confirm the addition of SLP to your Metamask wallet
The last step you will need to do is to confirm importing SLP one more time.
Once you’ve successfully imported SLP to your Metamask wallet, you should see it as one of your assets under the Ethereum Mainnet.
This will allow you to view any SLP that you’ve deposited via the ERC20 network!
You can’t add the Ronin version of SLP to Metamask
The SLP that you are adding to Metamask is the ERC20 version. This is slightly different from the SLP that you’re sending to your Ronin Wallet, which uses the Ronin sidechain of ERC20.
As such, you should send SLP to your Metamask wallet using the ERC20 network, and not Ronin. If you send SLP to your Metamask wallet using a Ronin address, your SLP may be lost forever!
SLP is an ERC20 native token, hence you can deposit SLP via the ERC20 network to your Metamask Wallet.
Once you have completed the import of SLP, you can consider sending SLP tokens from another platform to Metamask.
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!
