Interacting with Meter Mainnet Using MetaMask
Meter mainnet now supports two transactions (tx) formats:
- 1.The native Meter tx: which is more expansive and supports staking, on-chain auctions, validator transactions, and future multiple chains/shards. This tx format is used by the Meter mainnet wallet which is a PC/Mac application downloadable from the Meter website or Github.
- 2.Ethereum tx: This is designed for backward compatibility with existing Ethereum dApps and ecosystem including wallets like Metamask.
