Welcome to this guide, where we are going to see how you can fix the problem that Metamask connects directly to the Ethereum network, and how to change it.
A very common mistake is to have the Metamask wallet on the Etheruem network, although it is not really a mistake, and now we are going to see why. To do this, we will first answer a question, in order to understand the answer.
Metamask Main Network What is it?
The Metamask Main Network is the Ethereum network, and it is the network on which Metamask has based its wallet. Therefore, connecting to the Ethereum network is not a bug or a problem. It is how it comes standard and the configuration that this wallet has.
This does not mean that you cannot change network and use another network with Metamask. Metamask allows you to use other EVM (Etheruem Virtual Machine) networks such as Binance Smart Chain, Polygon, Fantom, Avalanche and many more.
To switch from the Ethereum network, it is as easy as clicking on the arrow at the top and selecting the other network you want to use. Note that you will need to add these networks to Metamask first, and if you don’t know how, you can learn how in our metamask guide.
So don’t worry if Metamask appears in the Ethereum network, as you can change it and it is what happens to any user, as it is the main network of this wallet.
I hope I have solved your question, and if you don’t have an account with Binance, you can create one just below.
