How To Add Optimism To MetaMask?

Apart from transferring funds from OpenSea to Metamask, the Ethereum-based crypto wallet can facilitate diverse transfers and movement of funds across all central blockchains. Indeed, this is why adding Optimism to MetaMask is slightly different than adding a new cryptocurrency or custom token to MetaMask. It is its own network. Here's how you can add Optimism to your MetaMask wallet.
