Here’s How To Add USDT To MetaMask On Ethereum In 2 Steps

Step 1: Go To The USDT Contract Address Page

Start by navigating your way to the USDT MetaMask contract address page. On this page you can quickly add USDT to your wallet within a few clicks.

The USDT contract address page represents the official USDT smart contract. Since USDT is deployed on multiple blockchains, USDT has a separate contract address for each blockchain. Using the contract address requires just a few clicks to add the token to your wallet.

Step 2: Click Add USDT To Wallet

Under the more tab, click ”Add Token to MetaMask (Web3)” – this will bring up a series of Metamask popups that will add the token to your wallet.

If you aren’t already connected to Ethereum mainnet, the Metamask popups will get you to connect; then you can click “add token” to add USDT to Metamask.

Just like the Ethereum contract page, click the three dots that bring up a menu for you to add the token to your wallet.

Once you click add token, a series of Metamask popups will appear and guide you toward adding USDT to your wallet. Check out this article if you need to add the Arbitrum blockchain to MetaMask.

Step 2: Click Add Token To Web3 Wallet

Once you have the contract page open, look to the right side of the screen, click on more, then click on “Add token”.

Starting with Coingecko, make your way to the USDT page.

If you want to add USDT to MetaMask on a different network:

  1. Click the three dots next to the MetaMask icon.
  2. Scroll through this list to find the blockchain that you want to use.
  3. Remember to switch your wallet to the blockchain you want to use before clicking the icon.

What Is USDT?

USDT is a stablecoin project run by Tether. USDT provides a 1:1 peg to the US dollar, allowing you to quickly swap between tokens that fluctuate in value and a token that remains stable.

Tether tokens are issued by depositing USD fiat within Tether’s interface, then receiving USDT from Tether. Because Tether is such a popular stablecoin, you can find liquidity to trade USDT on every blockchain without having to mint the tokens directly from Tether. You can read in depth how Tether works here.

USDT has an immense depth of liquidity, making it the token of choice for many exchanges and traders. On every blockchain and centralized exchange, you’ll find tokens paired with USDT with thousands of active traders.

The original Tether team that launched the protocol also worked on Bitfinex, one of the first and largest cryptocurrency exchanges.

Bitfinex was popular when every token had to be paired with Bitcoin since stablecoins didn’t exist. To put this into perspective, if you wanted to take profit on a token, you would first have to sell the token for Bitcoin, then sell your Bitcoin through an exchange for USD fiat. 

With the launch of USDT and other stablecoins, BTC-denominated trading slowly phased out as stablecoins increased in liquidity.
