I have MEW and Metamask installed.

When I am trying to send a transaction using:


It always uses Metamask. May I know how can I specify I want to use MEW instead?


The MEW browser extension isn't a web3 provider, so you can't use it to send transactions directly on your website, like with MetaMask.

Besides that, most web3 providers inject a global web3 object. If you have multiple browser extensions (or other software) injecting web3 providers, they will override each other.

  • Thanks, do you have any idea how can I sendTransaction with MEW? – s k Oct 21 '19 at 12:02
  • It's not possible to send transactions through MEW directly from your website. You can instruct users to send a transaction through their preferred method, or implement some kind of wallet functionality yourself, depending on your use case. – Morten Oct 21 '19 at 12:58
  • Furthermore, it makes no sense to use MEW. MetaMask can send transactions as well. No need to make it complicated. – Niklas Feurstein Oct 21 '19 at 19:58
