Automatic MetaMask configuration comes to Umbria Network
Thursday, December 9, 2021
The Umbria Network Connect Portal enables automatic MetaMask configuration to any EVM compatible chain. The tool enables anyone to automatically connect their MetaMask wallet to Polygon, Binance Smart Chain, Ethereum, and more. According to Oscar Chambers, Umbria is making it easier to use DeFi.
Umbria Network, a project, which has Online Blockchain plc as its co-ordinator, administrator, and advisor is further trying to simplify DeFi with its Connect Portal.
The tool enables anyone in the crypto community to automatically connect a MetaMask wallet to any Ethereum-style/EVM compatible chain, such as Polygon, Binance Smart Chain, Ethereum, and Avalanche almost instantly. This removes the need to manually configure RPC connections, which is a cumbersome and technically challenging process.

Anyone needing to add a chain/s quickly and easily to their MetaMask simply goes to: https://umbria.network/connect/ and chooses the network they want to connect with from the extensive dropdown list. They can search by network name, native currency, or RPC. Once the selection has been made, the MetaMask modal automatically appears, and the user just clicks 'approve' to complete the process. The Connect Portal also provides useful information regarding the connected chain such as chainID and a link to the network's native blockchain explorer.
Similarly, anyone can automatically connect their MetaMask wallet to a network just by typing a URL into their browser, for example:
The web page detects which chain the user wants to connect to and does all the work.
"This is another example of how Umbria is making it easier for anyone to use DeFi, NFTs, and related technologies. The protocol is doing all the heavy lifting and removing the complicated technical processes, which are often a barrier to so many people entering the space. The Connect Portal means no one will ever need to set up a new chain manually in their MetaMask wallet again. It's also a great way to avoid being scammed," said Oscar Chambers, Co-lead Developer at Umbria.
