4 Steps To Add wNEAR (Wrapped NEAR) To Your Metamask Wallet

If you’re looking to transfer your WNEAR tokens to your Metamask wallet, you will need to import them as a custom token.

Here’s a guide to help you get started.

How to add WNEAR to Metamask on the Aurora Network

Here are 4 steps to add WNEAR to Metamask:

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

And here is each step explained:

Go to Metamask and ensure that you are using the Aurora Network

The first thing you’ll need to do is to ensure that you are using the Aurora Network on Metamask.

If you have not set up the Aurora Network on your Metamask wallet, you can check out this step-by-step guide here.

Select ‘Import Tokens’, and then ‘Import Custom Token’

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

On the Aurora network, you are only able to import custom tokens.


This is different from adding tokens to the Ethereum Mainnet, where you can search for and automatically add tokens like AXS, MANA, or SAND.

Copy the Aurora contract from CoiMarketCap

For the next part, you can go to the WNEAR page on CoinMarketCap.

CoinMarketCap is one of the most reliable sites to obtain the contract address with regard to cryptocurrencies.

There is a section called ‘Contracts‘, where you’ll see the Aurora contract for WNEAR.

You can click on the contract and it will be copied to your clipboard.

Double-check that WNEAR is detected and select ‘Add Custom Token’

Once you’ve copied the Contract Address, you can paste it into the ‘Token Contract Address‘ field in Metamask.

If you pasted the correct contract address, WNEAR should automatically appear as the Token Symbol.

After selecting ‘Add Custom Token‘, you will need to confirm importing WNEAR one more time.

Once you’ve successfully imported WNEAR to your Metamask wallet, you should see it as one of your assets under the Aurora Network.

This will allow you to view any WNEAR that you’ve deposited via the Aurora Network!


WNEAR is a native token of the Aurora network, hence you can deposit WNEAR to your Metamask wallet via this network.

You may want to note that WNEAR can’t be added to Metamask via the NEAR Protocol as NEAR is not EVM-compatible.

This is similar to how you can add the AURORA token on the Aurora Mainnet.
