🍫Setting up Ganache with Metamask

Having trouble getting test ETH? Might be time to try Ganache.

Ganache is a development tool in the Truffle Suite and is used for setting up a personal Ethereum Blockchain to deploy contracts, develop your applications, and run tests. MetaMask is a software cryptocurrency wallet used to interact with the Ethereum blockchain. Getting test ETH is a nightmare these days so we recommend using local network for development. In a local network, there is no ETH limitation, and you don't have to wait for transactions to complete. In this tutorial we will install and setup Ganache and import your Ganache account to Metamask. When you are done you can:

  • Sign Ganache transactions from Metamask

  • Check your (Ganache) assets in Metamask

  • Check every (Ganache) transaction which affected your wallet in Metamask


  1. Install Ganache

  2. Run Ganache

  3. Setting up ganache network in Metamask

      1. Set the Network Name e.g ganache

      2. Set the Chain ID

      3. Set the Currency symbol
