If you use the MetaMask wallet, you might be aware that, due to a set of nifty integrations, you don’t have to think about whether payment methods are accepted in your region. Quotes are also automatically refreshed for you every 10 seconds and take into account gas price fluctuations.
These might not be the only benefits of using a MetaMask wallet though. MetaMask also makes it easy to integrate with PulseChain. So, if you’re looking at participating in this community-driven blockchain that can help bring more accessibility to decentralized applications (DApps), here are 4 simple steps to leverage your MetaMask wallet to do so.
But first, in order to buy PulseChain there are some core concepts to understand
- Buy PulseChain (PLS or PLSX) using ETH
- PulseChain is an Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatible Layer 1 blockchain
- PulseChain is bought through a Token Sale
Integration And Benefits Of PulseChain Using MetaMask
MetaMask enables you to participate in token sales and manage Ethereum-based assets. Both of these come into play if you want to buy PulseChain using MetaMask.
PulseChain is an Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatible Layer 1 blockchain which means that it can be integrated very easily with a MetaMask Wallet. So, after you understand that PulseChain is related to EVM, buying/integrating it with MetaMask can become simpler (and somewhat second nature).
PulseChain is highly compatible with EVM wallets, such as MetaMask. The speed and connection within the Ethereum network are enhanced when you use MetaMask.
As mentioned earlier, one core concept to understand is that ETH is bought first instead of PulseChain directly. Here are the steps to do that from your MetaMask wallet:
1. Connect the PulseChain network:
First, add the PulseChain network. You can do this manually or with the PulseX decentralized exchange (which automatically adds the network to your wallet).
To use the PulseX decentralized exchange, head over to the PulseX DEX and connect the MetaMask wallet to it. To add the network manually, follow the steps below.
- Open MetaMask
- Click “Networks”
- Select “Custom Network” and enter this information:
Network Name: PulseChain
New RPC URL: https://rpc.pulsechain.com
Chain ID: 369
Currency Symbol: PLS
Block Explorer: https://scan.pulsechain.com
Note: After connecting, if some tokens on Ethereum that you have aren’t visible, add those tokens to your MetaMask wallet manually.
Here’s how to add PulseChain to MetaMask using ChainList
For a safe and verified method, you can use ChainList, a secure and reputable aggregation platform. To do that, follow this guide:
- Access ChainList and link your wallet.
- In the search bar, key in ‘PulseChain’.
- Select PulseChain and then click ‘Add to MetaMask’.
Note: You might be asked to switch to the PulseChain network if the wallet is operating on another network. You can automatically connect with the app by clicking the Switch network button.
2. Load ETH into the wallet:
After adding the network, load ETH into the wallet. Remember to load the equivalent amount of ETH to the PLS that you want to buy.
Note: Check to be sure that you are adding ETH while on the Ethereum chain.
3. Switch the network from Ethereum to PulseChain
Next, check your PLS balance in your wallet and prepare for the transaction. By default, PulseChain matches the amount of Ethereum available in your wallet and reflects a similar amount on its chain in PLS. Your wallet is automatically credited with PLS matching the amount of ETH it is holding.
4. Find a Token Sale and complete the transaction
PulseChain tokens (PULSE) are often offered through initial liquidity offerings (ILOs) or token sales. Watch for announcements about upcoming sales by following PulseChain’s official channels.
At this point, it might be important to take note of a few things.
- Be wary of scams and unofficial ‘token sales’
- Exercise caution and be wary at each step of the process
- Consider being part of the community by following official channels
- Practice patience and be calm
After you’ve found a sale, connect MetaMask to the token sale website to participate. After being prompted to confirm the connection, you can review the permissions and approve the connection.
After finding a legitimate PulseChain token sale, go through the terms and conditions and check that you are sending funds to the correct address. During the token sale, you are probably going to have to send a certain amount of ETH to the address that is provided. Again, this is a part of the process where you should exercise caution and be aware of small details.
After transferring, you can track the progress of your transaction using the transaction hash provided by MetaMask. As mentioned, be patient while you wait for the transaction to be confirmed on the blockchain.
You can verify the transaction on a blockchain explorer. Your PULSE tokens should appear in your MetaMask wallet after the transaction is complete.
In summary, the MetaMask wallet is an efficient and straightforward choice when making the decision to buy PulseChain. This is because PulseChain is an Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatible Layer 1 blockchain which makes it very suitable for integration with a MetaMask Wallet.
Remember to first by ETH after connecting to the PulseChain network. After this, you can switch from the Ethereum to the PulseChain network, and use the ETH in your wallet that now shows as PLS to participate in a token sale. Remember to always participate in official token sales, to be cautious of addresses you are sending transfers to, and to exercise patience and alertness during the process.
