Setting up Celo Network


Make sure to have MetaMask installed. See here to download. Then, follow the instructions to create an account. Make sure to save your seed phrase safely!

Adding a Celo Network to MetaMask

  1. Open MetaMask, click your profile image on the top right corner, and then click "Settings". Next, scroll down to "Networks" and click. Finally, press the "Add Network" button.

  • Celo Mainnet

Network Name: Celo (Mainnet)


Chain ID: 42220

Currency Symbol (Optional): CELO

Block Explorer URL (Optional):

2. Press "Save". The Celo network you just configured should now show up under MetaMask's "Networks" dropdown list.

Adding Tokens (e.g. cUSD, cEUR)

  1. From MetaMask's Home screen, click on "Add Token" in the "Assets" tab.

  2. Click "Custom Token", and fill in the value for "Token Contract Address" for the token you'd like to add. The "Token Symbol" and "Decimals of Precision" should be filled in automatically.

The following are examples for cUSD and cEUR.

  • Token Contract Address for cUSD: 0x765de816845861e75a25fca122bb6898b8b1282a

  • Token Contract Address for cEUR: 0xd8763cba276a3738e6de85b4b3bf5fded6d6ca73

Sending assets to Metamask

Celo addresses have the same format as Ethereum addresses, so copying and pasting an address into the "to" field should work for most applications.
