Importing Keplr Wallets onto MetaMask

Using the Wormhole Portal bridge, users can seamlessly move assets from different chains onto Evmos to deploy into Tashi. When using Portal Bridge to move assets onto Tashi, Evmos automatically converts them to ERC-20 standard, which is not visible in your Keplr wallet.. For these assets to be visible on your Meta Mask wallet users can import their Keplr Wallet onto their existing Metamask Wallet.
