Add a web3 connect button to your React App with TypeScript and Metamask.

Metamask is the most popular cryptocurrency wallet with over 10 Million monthly active users. Available as a browser extension and mobile app, Metamask provides key functionalities that make it easy to interact with the Ethereum blockchain and other notable chains like Binance, Avalanche, and Polygon. Web3 developers may use these capabilities to power decentralized apps (dApps), allowing users to perform blockchain-based transactions securely with a single sign-on.

In this article, we will use TypeScript to add a Metamask connect button to a basic React project. Google’s Firebase social login, which allows developers to build apps that authenticate users using their Google, Facebook, GitHub, and Twitter accounts, is a similar traditional web equivalent.

Let’s get started.

Build a Token Dashboard with React Hooks, Moralis API, and Bootstrap CSS

Introduction

Ever since I discovered Moralis, I’ve always wanted to play around with the API to see its capabilities. If you’re interested in my work with QuickNode API, you can find it here

A Simple Ethereum Blockchain Explorer with Javascript, QuickNode, and Tailwind CSS

Below is a screenshot of our app’s final version. 

HTML Starter

To get started, we will be setting up a basic HTML file called index.html. Since we will be using Tailwind CSS, the Tailwind HTML starter template is a good starting point. We will also be using the CDN link for styles.

N.B. We will be using this since we’re just running a test setup. Using the npm installation is advised for production setups and not the CDN link.
