How To Connect MetaMask Wallet to Binance BNB Smart Chain

Installing and setting up MetaMask

MetaMask can be downloaded on Microsoft Edge, Chrome and Firefox, or on iOS and Android if you’re a mobile user. For the purposes of this tutorial, we’ll use the Edge version, but the instructions will be more or less the same for every platform.

Configuring the wallet

You might notice straight away that we’re still dealing with an Ethereum wallet. At best, this won’t work with the BNB Smart Chain. At worst, you could lose funds by sending them to addresses you can’t actually use.

Select Settings from the dropdown menu.
Select Networks in the Settings Menu
Click on Add Network Button
Custom Networks Settings

Mainnet

Network Name: BSC Mainnet

Fill in Network Details as above.
Ethereum Mainnet is still selected.
Select BSC Mainnet
