MetaMask Guide

Step 1: Download Metamask

Step 2: Create Wallet

  • Run the extension from the top right of your browser. You may need to click on the jigsaw icon and then pin the icon.
  • Click on Getting Started, followed by Create a Wallet and finally Agree.
  • Enter your desired password and accept the Terms of Use.
  • You will now be presented with a short video and important information on how to keep your wallet safe. Click Next when you are ready.
  • Write down your Secret Recovery Phrase ( also known as Seed/Mnemonic Phrase). Please use a Pen and Paper only and store them in a safe place.
  • Repeat the words back into the wallet and click Next.
  • Providing you entered them in correctly you will be presented with a Congratulations page.

Step 3: Add Harmony Network

  • A full guide from the harmony docs can be found here but I will break it down for you below.
  • Click on the network dropdown (top center). It will likely already say Etherium Network.
  • Click on Add Network and enter the following information.
  • Network Name: Harmony Mainnet
  • New RPC URL:
  • Chain ID: 1666600000
  • Currency symbol (optional): ONE
  • Block Explorer URL (optional):
  • Click Save.
  • You will now see the Harmony Network in the dropdown at the top. Make sure this is selected to be able to 1) see you assets and 2) interact with the harmony blockchain.

Step 4: Staking — Link your wallet

Now we get to the good part. Time to make some passive income.

  • Go to the harmony staking page.
  • Click Sign in ( bottom left ). If you don’t see this, then please zoom out on your browser.
  • Click ‘Use an existing address’
  • Click ‘Use MetaMask’ — or click this link
  • Click ‘Sign In’ — blue button
  • You will now be prompted to choose your Account from a list ( if you have mutiple ). Select your desired wallet and click Next and then Connect.
  • Your wallet and the staking page are now linked!! You can confirm the link by click the Portfolio tab on the left. This will show you a summary of your wallet, staked, unstated, rewards etc.
  • If you operate multiple wallets you can change the wallet in which you are logged into the staking site quickly by switching it on the metamask wallet itself via the profile icon ( top right ).

Step 5: Sending and receiving ONE

Now that you are signed in, you will notice at the top left of the staking portal you can copy your ONE address. Use this to send funds directly to your wallet. Send a small test amount first.

  • You need to aquire the ONE version. Paste the 0x Metamask address into explorer and then click the ONE tab at the top. You will see the address convert itself to the ONE format. Copy this into your origin wallet. Please send a test amount first.
  • You need to aquire the 0x version. Paste the exchange ONE address into explorer and click the ETH tab at the top. Copy this address into Metamask and make sure that the gas is set to 30 gwei on Metamask. Please send a test amount first.

6) Choose your validator

Now its time to choose the lucky validator. Click the validator tab on the left.

7) Stake

To stake with a validator you must now click the DELEGATE button (screenshot below). Please do NOT send funds to the validator address. I myself have returned many delegators ONE whom have sent it directly to my wallet.

8) Confirm stake

Click the Portfolio tab at the top left.

9) Collect Rewards

Once you have accrued enough rewards to claim ( min 1 ONE ) the ‘Claim Rewards’ button will now be present and clickable.

10) Top up your stake

Have your brought some more ONE or claimed some rewards? So long as you have a minium of 100 ONE you can now top up the stake. No need to undelegate first! The process is exactly the same as your first stake. It will then top up your total.

Other points

  • Rewards will start to accrue on the next epoch after you stake (between 0–24hrs time)
  • Unstaking will take 7 epochs to complete before the coins are unlocked.
