Peersyst releases a guide to help users who want to transfer their XRP to Metamask as testing of the EVM Sidechain begins.

As reported by The Crypto Basic yesterday, XRP holders can now create XRP accounts on Metamask and hold their tokens there. In a tweet on Tuesday, Peersyst Technologies revealed a quick guide showing how it is done.

Peersyst Technology shared a thread detailing all steps necessary to add XRP to Metamask. Notably, the steps are broken down into four broad processes.

The first step is to create a Devnet account. Next, users must connect the created Devnet account to the Xumm wallet.

Users Response

So far, the tweet has been met with positive responses from users who completed the process with little difficulty.

Meanwhile, another user cautioned users not to link the bridge to their main wallets. It comes as crypto bridges have often been at the center of exploits in the past.

It bears mentioning that the latest development comes as the XRP Ledger (XRPL) starts testing its EVM-compatible side chain, combining the XRPL’s scalability with the robustness of Ethereum’s smart contracts. As a result, it promises to offer users access to a rich ecosystem of decentralized finance (DeFi) and decentralized apps (DApps). 

As previously reported, testing is expected to extend till at least Q1 2023 with no clear date for the mainnet launch. There is little doubt that the EVM side chain will usher in even more XRP adoption in addition to its On-Demand Liquidity use case (ODL).

Notably, developers are also working to bring NFTs to the chain with the XLS-20 amendment, with implementation believed to be just months away. Combining all of this, XRP may quickly develop to become a strong Ethereum competitor.
