Add USDT To Metamask

Last updated on June 8th, 2022

USDT is one of the more well-established stablecoins, and it can be added to multiple networks.

Here’s a guide to show you how to add USDT to some of the networks that are supported by Metamask.

Can you add USDT to Metamask?

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

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

You are able to add USDT to networks that are supported by Metamask, which are mainly those which are compatible with the Ethereum network.

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

Can I add USDT TRC20 to Metamask?

You are unable to add the TRC20 version of USDT to your Metamask wallet, as Metamask does not support the Tron network. This is because the Tron network is not compatible with the Ethereum network.

Although USDT has a TRC20 contract address,

USDT TRC20 CoinMarketCap Contract

you are unable to add the TRC20 network to your Metamask wallet!

It will be best not to send USDT via the TRC20 network to your Metamask wallet. There will be a chance that these USDT funds will be lost forever.

Conclusion

You are able to add USDT to a variety of networks on Metamask after you have transferred them over. This is particularly useful if you are looking to reduce the withdrawal fees, as the ERC20 withdrawal fees are quite high.

This method of adding USDT is also similar to other multi-chain cryptocurrencies, such as USDC, DAI or MIM.

However, there are still some versions of USDT (such as the TRC20 version) which can’t be added to Metamask. As such, it will be good to double check if Metamask and the platform that you’re withdrawing from both support the network that you intend to use for the withdrawal.
