How to add Sui Wallet
As mentioned above, the Sui network is not built using the solidity programming language which means it cannot be added to a MetaMask wallet. That said, the team behind Sui have built their own Sui Wallet which functions the same as popular wallets like MetaMask or Phantom for Solana.
You can download and install the Sui Wallet in 3 simple steps:
- Visit the Sui Wallet extension and download it
- Set up your account and save your seed phrase
- You will be automatically connected to the Sui Devnet and read to test the network
How to get Sui Testnet Tokens
If you want to interact with DeFi and NFT applications on the Sui Devnet, you will need to acquire Sui testnet tokens. You can follow the video guide below to safely acquire Sui testnet tokens in minutes.
Alternative Wallets for Sui Blockchain
There is only one alternative wallet for the Sui network called the Ethos Wallet. The wallet was created by Nod Labs who are a team based in Silicon Valley in the United States. While the wallet is currently functional and compatible with Sui and the Sui testnet, we found it to be less useable and less intuitive than the Sui Wallet.
Will Sui have an Airdrop for Testnet Participation?
The team behind Sui has not yet announced an airdrop for testnet participants. However, they have hinted that there may be some sort of reward system for those who participate in the devnet and help test the network. Some teams have teased the idea of a SUI airdrop in the future, which makes us believe that it is likely testnet users will receive compensation for participating in the beta.
What is Sui?
Sui is a new smart contract platform built by Mysten Labs that uses a novel consensus mechanism to enable fast and scaleable applications. The project is backed by major VCs including FTX, a16z Crypto, Binance Labs, Coinbase Ventures and others, making it one of the most well-funded projects in the space.
The native token of the Sui network is called SUI and will be used to pay transaction fees, gas costs and will also be needed to stake in order to validate transactions on the network. The only way to receive an allocation to the token before it goes live is by participating in the testnet.
In conclusion, Sui is a promising new smart contract platform that offers a novel consensus mechanism for faster and more scalable applications. Although it cannot be added to MetaMask Wallet due to its incompatibility with Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), users can still participate in the Sui Devnet and potentially earn airdrop rewards by downloading and installing the Sui Wallet extension or using the Ethos Wallet. With major VCs backing the project, SUI, the native token of the Sui network, is highly anticipated and can only be acquired by participating in the testnet.
