Think it’s time to take your Fantom (FTM) of Kucoin and store it on Metamask? Luckily this can be super simple with the right instructions which I will lay out below for you. Storing tokens such as your FTM tokens is much safer on Metamask rather than a centralized exchange such as Kucoin.
How to Transfer Fantom From Kucoin to Metamask
Step 1: First we need to make sure you have the Fantom network added to Metamask as this does not come set up by default. To add Fantom to your Metamask we must add the Fantom network custom RPC.
Step 2: In your Metamask click the network at the top of the wallet to open the drop down and navigate to the “Add network” button. This will open a new tab.
Step 3: From this new tab click “Add a network manually”. From here you will be prompted to enter the network details for the network you would like to add to Metamask in this case it is Fantom.
Enter the below details to add the Fantom network to Metamask.
Click Save and you will now have the Fantom network available in your Metamask via the network drop down menu at the top of the Metamask wallet.
Step 4: Now that you have the Fantom network available in your Metamask you can navigate to Kucoin to begin the transfer of Fantom from Kucoin to Metamask.
From your Kucoin main account search Fantom to find the FTM token and click Withdraw.
Step 5: You can now copy your Fantom address in Metamask, do this simply by clicking on the address at the top of your Metamask wallet, make sure you have the Fantom network selected when you do this.
Step 6: Now back to Kucoin, paste the wallet address you just copied from Metamask and paste it in the “Wallet Address” input box.
In the “Network” drop down box below you can choose which network you would like to use to make the withdrawal, in this case it is the Fantom network. You will notice this network also offers the cheapest fees which is one of Fantoms selling points.
Step 7: Smack that Withdraw button and your Fantom will be on its way from Kucoin to Metamask.
And just like that you have transferred your Fantom tokens from Kucoin to Metamask. The process is more or less the same for other tokens the only difference is the token you are sending and the network you are sending it through.
