Hi all, I want to use my unique RPC instead of common RPCs. How can I change it?
- Install and set up MetaMask: Ensure that you have MetaMask installed as a browser extension and set up with an Ethereum wallet.
- Obtain a custom provider URL: Find or create a custom Ethereum node provider URL. This could be a self-hosted node or a service that offers node hosting.
- Configure MetaMask settings: Open MetaMask and access the settings menu. Scroll down to the “Networks” section and click on “Add Network” to create a new network configuration.
- Fill in network details: Provide the relevant details for your custom network, including the network name, RPC URL (the custom provider URL obtained earlier), the chain ID, currency symbol, and block explorer URL.
- Save the network configuration: After filling in the network details, click on the “Save” button to save the custom network configuration in MetaMask.
- Switch to the custom network: Once the custom network is saved, you can select it from the network dropdown menu in MetaMask.
