Summary: The RSK Network is a Smart Contract platform of Bitcoin with merged mining that is a forked version of the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). This means that it is compatible with MetaMask and the network information can be easily added to your wallet.

The easiest way to add the RSK Network to MetaMask is with ChainList. ChainList is an EVM information aggregator that allows users to safely connect to the verified RPC and Chain ID to get started at the click of a button. Continue reading this guide for a detailed walkthrough.

Can I Add RSK to MetaMask?

Yes, it is possible to incorporate the RSK Network with your MetaMask wallet, facilitated by its interoperability with Ethereum-based mechanisms via a technology known as 'two-way peg'. Like Ethereum, RSK Network also employs the Solidity programming language, enabling seamless integration with Metamask. Therefore, the scope of Metamask extends to all networks that can correspond with Ethereum's toolkit, with RSK Network being one of these alongside others such as Avalanche and BNB Chain.

How to Add Rootstock RSK to MetaMask

As outlined above, the best way to add the RSK Network to your MetaMask Wallet is through the ChainList app. Their platform aggregates the best and fastest RPCs for RSK and all other EVM Layer 1 and Layer 2 blockchains and enables users to safely connect to any network.

Here is a simple 4 step guide to get started:

  1. Visit ChainList and connect your wallet.
  2. Search for "RSK" in the search tab.
  3. Find RSK and click "Add to MetaMask".
  4. Your MetaMask Wallet will then prompt you to add the network and you're done!

How to Bridge to RSK

The best way to bridge assets to RSK (Rootstock) is through a secure and trusted cross-chain DEX. We recommend using the official RSK Token Bridge that allows users to bridge WETH from Ethereum mainnet to RSK with a MetaMask Wallet. It is important to note that for this service, RSK charges a flat 0.2% fee every time you bridge to RSK from Ethereum, or vice versa.

What is RSK Network (Rootstock)?

RSK Network (Rootstock) is a decentralized platform that provides smart contract functionality on top of the Bitcoin blockchain. It aims to provide a more secure and scalable solution for executing smart contracts compared to traditional Ethereum-based platforms.

RSK Network uses the same consensus mechanism as Bitcoin, called Proof-of-Work (PoW), which allows it to leverage the security of the Bitcoin network and provide a high level of security for its own network. In addition, RSK Network provides a two-way peg to Bitcoin, which allows users to easily move their bitcoins to the RSK network and back. This makes RSK Network a unique platform for building decentralized applications and executing smart contracts on top of the most secure and widely-used blockchain network.

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, the RSK Network is a powerful platform for decentralized applications and smart contracts, providing a secure and scalable solution on top of the Bitcoin blockchain. Adding RSK to your MetaMask wallet is simple and straightforward, and can be done easily through the ChainList app.

Bridging assets to RSK can be done through a secure and trusted cross-chain DEX, such as the official RSK Token Bridge. With its compatibility with the Ethereum Virtual Machine and its ability to leverage the security of the Bitcoin network, RSK Network is a unique and valuable addition to your decentralized finance ecosystem.
