Deposit Dai to MetaMask

Hi All,

This question might seem a bit dumb, but is there a way to deposit Dai to MetaMask directly?
I only see a button to send Dai but not Deposit.
Is it that it only works by depositing Eth and then exchanging for Dai?

Any help is highly appreciated!!

Of course you can. All you have to do it click on the your ETH address and then click on deposit. Then send your DAI to your ETH address. After that you will see your DAI balance go up in the metamask. DAI is an erc20 token and every erc20 token is sent to an ETH address. Test it out with 1 DAI and see the magic. Hope that helps. :smiley:

Send DAI just like you would send ETH to your metamask address.

Thanks Mauro. :smiley:
I tried to send some DAI from Crypto.com to my MetaMask using the Eth address before I asked the question, but actually the crypto.com app won’t let me send it…
So the problem was that when the app reads the QR code, it automatically displays the address as an ETH address…so you have to delete the legend Ethereum and keep the actual address only.

Hi Ritious, please see my reply below…this might help, it works as I sent 10 Dai to test first.
Thanks Mauro. :smiley:

So you figured it out now? Its hard to know all the wallets out there. But the way to do it is always the same. Erc20 goes to an ETH address. :smiley:
