Many people are familiar with using Metamask to send coins or tokens on the Ethereum network, but it's important to note that Metamask is not directly compatible with Solana. Solana has its blockchain and isn't currently EVM compatible, which means you can't directly add Solana to Metamask and sending SOL to your Metamask by default would result in a loss of funds. However, you can use Solflare Metamask snaps to interact with Solana and if you are interested in using Metamask with Solana you can follow step 7 to the last step of this guide to add Solana to your Metamask or if you're looking for a wallet with a similar look and feel to Metamask, Phantom is a great option and it is specifically built for the Solana blockchain.  Follow the steps below to set up Phantom or skip steps 1- 6 and follow step 7 to the last step to add Solana to Metamask.
