Getting started with the Portfolio dapp

What is the Portfolio dapp?

The Portfolio dapp is a new feature enabling you to view all your MetaMask accounts and their assets in one place. It aggregates values from across your accounts and shows your total holdings, making it easier than ever to get an at-a-glance summary of their value in your chosen currency. 

As MetaMask is designed to function as your passport to the decentralized web—which, of course, is now multi-chain—your portfolio can also show assets held on different networks compatible with Ethereum. Currently, this includes:

  • Ethereum mainnet
  • Avalanche (C-Chain)
  • Polygon
  • BNB Smart Chain (formerly BSC).

We aim to expand network coverage as soon as we’re able to. 


How do I get set up?

  1. The first thing you’ll need to do is connect your MetaMask wallet. This is as simple as hitting the prompt in the center of the screen; if you want more information, see our guide
  2. Once connected, you can start exploring your portfolio:
    • Learn how to switch networks
    • Explore details about the assets your hold
    • View your NFTs
    • Find and watch additional tokens
  3. Add any additional MetaMask accounts you have.



Can I add accounts from wallets other than MetaMask?

At the moment, no. The dapp will only accommodate accounts created in MetaMask, although adding accounts that don’t originate from MetaMask is part of our roadmap. 

However, you can get around this by watching the account. This enables you to essentially add any Ethereum address to your portfolio.

Can I add accounts from two different MetaMask wallets (i.e. two Secret Recovery Phrases)?

No. You can only use one MetaMask wallet (i.e. one Secret Recovery Phrase) at a time, accessing the accounts associated with that Secret Recovery Phrase.

The wallet (and associated accounts) accessible in the dapp will be the wallet you’re logged into in your current instance of MetaMask.

What networks are supported?

We support Ethereum mainnet, Avalanche, Polygon and BNB Smart Chain.

Will the Portfolio show imported wallets and hardware wallets from my MetaMask?

Yes. Any imported wallets and hardware wallets which are currently present in your instance of MetaMask (i.e. the browser you're using) will be displayed, should you wish them to be.

What’s the relationship between the Portfolio dapp and MetaMask?

MetaMask is a crypto wallet that allows you to take control of your identity on web3 and access decentralized applications (dapps) such as this platform.

The Portfolio dapp, as its name suggests, is a decentralized application that you sign into using MetaMask, and, in doing so, allow the dapp to access and display your account details and balances.

Portfolio is developed by teams closely affiliated with MetaMask, and is directly accessible from your MetaMask wallet.

Can I use Portfolio on MetaMask Mobile as well as MetaMask Extension?

Yes! You can use the dapp on both platforms.

However, to sign into the dapp on MetaMask Mobile, please use the in-app browser.
