Whether you are staking INJ or just looking to add INJ to your portfolio, the MetaMask wallet is one of the easiest ways to manage your INJ.

Here is a simple step-by-step process that will get you started.

Step-by-step Guide to Add INJ to MetaMask Wallet

Step 1: Installing the MetaMask Wallet

First, if you don’t already have MetaMask installed, visit the official MetaMask website, download, and install the browser extension.

Step 2: Setting up the MetaMask Wallet

After installing MetaMask, you need to set up your wallet. MetaMask will guide you through the setup process, which includes setting up a password and backing up your seed phrase. (PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU LOSE YOUR MNEMONIC SEED, YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO GET ACCESS TO YOUR WALLET. DO NOT SHARE YOUR MNEMONIC SEED WITH ANYONE AND SAVE IT IN A WAY YOU WON’T LOSE IT.)

Step 3: Adding INJ to MetaMask Wallet

Once your wallet is set up and secure, you can add INJ. Next, make sure your MetaMask wallet is set to the Ethereum Network.

Even though the MetaMask wallet is often set to the Ethereum Network by default, it is important to confirm that you are on the Ethereum Network since any erroneous transactions on the wrong network can lead to the loss of tokens forever.

You can confirm the network you are operating from by going to the “Networks” tab on MetaMask and checking to see whether the Ethereum Mainnet is highlighted.

Step 4: Import Custom Tokens

Now that you are on the Ethereum Mainnet head over to the “import token” section of the MetaMask wallet and search for Injective.

You can also go to the Custom Token section and copy the Ethereum contract from the INJ profile on CoinMarketCap. Adding INJ through the Ethereum contract gives you a much better chance of adding the right INJ to your MetaMask wallet.

Step 5: Confirm Importing INJ

You will see the INJ icon appear upon installing the right Injective address. Click the confirm button, and INJ will be automatically added to your MetaMask wallet on the Ethereum mainnet.

Now you can proceed to add INJ to your MetaMask wallet through the ERC20 network.

Important Considerations

Be sure to keep your private key safe. Private key security is vital for safeguarding your digital assets. Always ensure that your private keys are stored securely and never shared.

Also, keep your wallet software up to date and adhere to recommended security measures. This way, you can ensure the safety of your assets.


Adding INJ to your MetaMask wallet is a simple process, and doing so lets you take advantage of the benefits offered by the Injective, such as staking through the MetaMask wallet. Just ensure you’re following all security measures to safeguard your digital assets.
