Here are 3 steps to add USDT to Metamask on the ERC20 network:

  1. Go to your Metamask wallet and ensure that you are using the Ethereum Mainnet
  2. Select ‘Import Tokens’, and then search for USDT
  3. Confirm the addition of USDT to your Metamask wallet

Go to your Metamask wallet and ensure that you are using the Ethereum Mainnet

The first thing you’ll need to do is to ensure that you are using the Ethereum Mainnet on Metamask.

This is the default network for all Metamask wallets. However, you are also able to connect Metamask to other blockchain networks, such as:

  1. Polygon
  2. Fantom
  3. Binance Smart Chain
  4. Avalanche

As such, do remember to be on the Ethereum Mainnet before moving on to the next step.

Select ‘Import Tokens’, and then search for USDT

Once you’re on the Ethereum Mainnet, the next step will be to select ‘Import Tokens‘.

On the ‘Search‘ tab, you can search and select USDT as the token that you wish to import.

Confirm the addition of USDT to your Metamask wallet

The last step you will need to do is to confirm importing USDT one more time.

Once you’ve successfully imported USDT to your Metamask wallet, you should see it as one of your assets under the Ethereum Mainnet.

This process is similar to adding other tokens, such as RARI or MANA.

How to add USDT to Metamask on the Avalanche Network

Here are 4 steps to add USDT to Metamask on the Avalanche Network:

  1. Go to Metamask and ensure that you are using the Avalanche Network
  2. Select ‘Import Tokens’, and then ‘Import Custom Token’
  3. Copy the Avalanche C-Chain contract from CoinMarketCap
  4. Double check that USDT is detected and select ‘Add Custom Token’

Go to Metamask and ensure that you are using the Avalanche Network

The first thing you’ll need to do is to ensure that you are using the Avalanche Network on Metamask.

If you have not set up the Avalanche Network on your Metamask wallet, you can check out this step-by-step guide here.

Select ‘Import Tokens’, and then ‘Import Custom Token’

Once you’re on the Avalanche Network, the next step will be to select ‘Import Tokens‘.

On the Avalanche network, you are only able to import custom tokens.

Copy the Avalanche C-Chain contract from CoinMarketCap

For the next part, you can go to the USDT page on CoinMarketCap.

There is a section called ‘Contracts‘, where you’ll need to view the Avalanche contract for USDT after clicking on ‘More‘.

You can click on the contract and it will be copied to your clipboard.

Double check that USDT is detected and select ‘Add Custom Token’

Once you’ve copied the Contract Address, you can paste it in the ‘Token Contract Address‘ field in Metamask.

If you pasted the correct contract address, USDT.e should automatically appear as the Token Symbol.

USDT.e is the USDT token that has been migrated to the Avalanche network.

After selecting ‘Add Custom Token‘, you will need to confirm importing USDT.e one more time.

Once you’ve successfully imported USDT.e to your Metamask wallet, you should see it as one of your assets under the Avalanche Network.

This is similar to how you would add JOE, TIME or MEMO to your Metamask wallet.

How to add USDT to Metamask on the Harmony ONE Network

Here are 4 steps to add USDT to Metamask on the Harmony ONE Network:

  1. Go to Metamask and ensure that you are using the Harmony Mainnet
  2. Select ‘Import Tokens’, and then ‘Import Custom Token’
  3. Copy the Harmony contract from CoinMarketCap
  4. Double check that USDT is detected and select ‘Add Custom Token’

And here is each step explained:

Go to Metamask and ensure that you are using the Harmony Mainnet

The first thing you’ll need to do is to ensure that you are using the Harmony Mainnet on Metamask.

If you have not set up the Harmony Network on your Metamask wallet, you can check out this step-by-step guide here.

Select ‘Import Tokens’, and then ‘Import Custom Token’

Once you’re on the Harmony Mainnet, the next step will be to select ‘Import Tokens‘.

On the Harmony network, you are only able to import custom tokens.

There is a section called ‘Contracts‘, where you’ll see the Harmony contract for USDT.

You can click on the contract and it will be copied to your clipboard.

Double check that USDT is detected and select ‘Add Custom Token’

Once you’ve copied the Contract Address, you can paste it in the ‘Token Contract Address‘ field in Metamask.

If you pasted the correct contract address, 1USDT should automatically appear as the Token Symbol.

After selecting ‘Add Custom Token‘, you will need to confirm importing USDT one more time.

Once you’ve successfully imported USDT to your Metamask wallet, you should see it as one of your assets under the Harmony Mainnet.

What is the difference between BEP-2, BEP-20 and ERC-20?

Most of the popular tokens today are ERC 20 tokens that are build on Ethereum. If you are quite confused then visit CoinMarketCap and you should be able to figure out whether a token is built on Ethereum blockchain or Binance chain.

ERC-20 is a technical standard for smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain for tokens.

BEP-2 is a technical standard for implementing and launching tokens on the Binance blockchain.

BEP 20 represents a token standard on Binance smart chain.

This is all you need to understand:

  • ERC20 – Ethereum chain
  • BEP 2 – Binance chain.
  • BEP 20 – Binance smart chain

For example if you choose BEP 20 as network and withdraw your ERC 20 token then the tx will be visible on Bsc scan and not Etherscan. It’s because you withdrew it to Binance chain and not Ethereum chain.

So when depositing or withdrawing make sure to choose the right intended network. Ensure that you use the correct chain that the platform supports.

If you require assistance or quite confused then we recommend you to contact Binance support.

Hope it helps.
