Getting Onboarded to Mantle Mainnet


More than a month has passed since Mantle Network Mainnet went live — if you’ve been keeping up with us, we announced the launch of mainnet at EthCC on July 17, 2023, while meeting some of the best blockchain contributors and community members across multiple events throughout the week. From Stable Summit to a co-hosted Sozu Haus Paris, our very own launch event and more, the Mantle team sprinted into L2 summer fueled by our highly-anticipated launch.

Hence, this seems like a perfect time to share this guide, which would be a "one-stop know-it-all" and a perfect place to get onboard to Mantle Mainnet.

Becoming a part of Mantle Network

For new Mantle users, this guide will explain how to:

  1. Connect your wallet to Mantle Network • Adding Mantle Network to your wallet • Adding Mantle Network token — $MNT on Ethereum Mainnet
  2. Getting $MNT for Mantle Mainnet Interaction
  3. Guide for Mantle Mainnet Bridge
  4. Withdrawing from Mantle Mainnet

  1. Launch MetaMask and login to your wallet.
  2. The default network setting for the wallet is generally "Ethereum Mainnet". Click on the button in the top-left to bring up a dropdown menu. Click on "Add network" at the bottom of the dropdown menu.

  1. This will take you the "Add a network" page where you'll see multiple popular networks. Click on "Add a network manually" to bring up a form.

Getting MNT to Interact With the Network

$MNT is the official token for Mantle Network. Here's a few exchanges where you can acquire $MNT to start interacting with Mantle Mainnet.

  2. Uniswap V3 (Ethereum) - Link
  3. • MNT/USDT
  4. BingX • MNT/USDT
  6. Korbit • MNT/KRW
  7. Coinone • MNT/KRW
  8. BitMart • MNT/USDT

How to get $MNT Using Bybit

  1. Head over to and login.
  2. Click on Buy Crypto tab and select One-Click Buy.

  1. In the Buy tab, select USD in spend, and select MNT in receive.


It is important to note that not all native currency would support MNT. In such situations, you will have to require either USDT, USDC or BTC first and then swap it for MNT. Let's see how that is done.

  1. Selecting INR as an example. Users will have to acquire USDT, USDC or BTC first.

  1. Once you've acquired some USDT, USDC or BTC. Head over to Trade and select Convert

  1. Select either of the acquired USDT, USDC or BTC in the "From" space and MNT in the "to" space. Once done — click on convert.

Note: Please make sure that you choose the correct wallet. Your funds can be in either Funding or Spot.

  1. And you're done! Remember to withdraw the MNT from Bybit and send it to the Metamask wallet that you've created! This can be easily done via withdrawing option under the "Assets" tab.

Adding Mantle Network token — $MNT on Ethereum Mainnet

This is an important step to make sure you have $MNT accessible in your wallet for bridging onto Mantle Mainnet. Just FYI, here's the link to the official $MNT contract on Ethereum Mainnet (

  1. Open MetaMask and click on + Import tokens

  1. Click on Custom Token and Paste "0x3c3a81e81dc49A522A592e7622A7E711c06bf354" in the Token contract Address space. Wait for a few seconds and the other spaces for Token Symbol and Token Decimal should populate on its own. If not, please put MNT and 18 manually.

  1. Once done, click on the Add custom token button.

  1. Congrats, your $MNT has now been added successfully to Metmask
