Setting up your wallet
CAP currently runs on Arbitrum, an Ethereum L2 network.
This will add the Arbitrum network configuration to your MetaMask wallet, allowing you to connect to Arbitrum One (Arbitrum's main network).
Alternatively, you can configure the connection manually in MetaMask's network settings using these values:
- Network Name: Arbitrum One
- RPC URL: https://arb1.arbitrum.io/rpc
- Chain ID: 42161
- Currency Symbol: ETH
- Block Explorer URL: https://arbiscan.io
Next, you'll want to bridge some ETH, USDC, and/or CAP from Ethereum mainnet into Arbitrum.
The quickest way to do this for ETH and USDC is to use Hop. It allows you to move between Arbitrum and other chains without time delays.
Once you have funds on Arbitrum, you're ready to trade, pool, or stake.
