Don't have a wallet or need help accessing it? Go ahead and check out the following guides for help getting started:


While MyEtherWallet is first and foremost a platform for interacting with the Ethereum blockchain, we also offer the option to interact with other smart contract networks that have been forked from the Ethereum blockchain or represent Layer 2/sidechain Ethereum solutions. Some examples of these networks include ETC, Polygon, and BSC.

If you’re trying to access a different blockchain on MEW, you’ll need to first access your wallet and then click the ‘Change’ button found in the ‘Network’ box.

To Change Networks:

  1. Access your wallet by choosing the desired method.

  2. When logged in, you’ll see a ‘Network’ section in the upper right-hand corner. Go ahead and click the arrow directly to the right of the word 'Network'.

  3. Choose the network you would like to interact with from this list. Your address will not change, but your balances will change to reflect the selected network.

Congratulations! You just switched networks on MEW!

Please note: If you’re accessing using a Hardware wallet, MetaMask, or other third-party connection methods, you may not be able to change networks. This is because the network is determined before access, and it cannot be changed.
