How To Add USDC To Metamask

Last updated on June 8th, 2022

USDC is one of the stablecoins that is pegged to the US dollar, and it is a rather versatile currency that can be used on multiple networks.

If you are looking to add USDC to your Metamask wallet, there are actually quite a lot of ways you can do so!

Here’s what you need to know.

Can I add USDC to my Metamask wallet?

You are able to add USDC to your Metamask wallet on any networks that are compatible with the Ethereum network (e.g. Polygon and Cronos). However, you aren’t able to add USDC to your Metamask wallet using networks that are not compatible with the Ethereum network (e.g. Solana, Terra or Algorand).

There are many networks that you can add USDC to, which you can view on the USDC page on CoinMarketCap.

However, USDC can exist on other networks, such as Solana and Tron (TRC20). You will not be able to add these versions of USDC to your Metamask wallet since Metamask does not support them.
