How to add OKExChain Mainnet to MetaMask

How to use MetaMask web Wallat to interact with OKExChain Mainnet

The news of Wing Finance launching on OKExChain got me interested in OKExChain as the airdrop was too good to miss. So, I started studding a bit more about OKExChain and soon learned that I can use MetaMask to interact with it. I thought it would be helpful for noobs like me to have clear instructions on “How to add OKExChain Mainnet to MetaMask”. This tutorial intends to provide just that.

MetaMast support few Mainnetts and testnets out of the box. But OKExChain isn’t one of them. I had to add it manually. This requires certain information like PRC which was a bit difficult to find. I tried googling the term “How to add OKExChain Mainnet to MetaMask” but almost all pages had instructions for OKExChain testnet which is disastrous. So, I decided I had to create a tutorial.

Prerequisites
