Can I add Moonbeam (GLMR) to MetaMask?

Yes, you can add the Moonbeam Network to your MetaMask wallet because it is an Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatible blockchain. MetaMask currently supports all EVM-compatible networks that support EVM native programming languages like Solidity and Vyper.

While Moonbeam is built on the Polkadot blockchain, it is designed to be EVM-compatible and supportive of the EVM programming language. This is one of the reasons why Moonbeam has been the most successful Parachain on Polkadot.
