At first, MetaMask won’t work with Binance Smart Chain Dapps. We want to access the Settings to Connecting MetaMask to Binance Smart Chain nodes.
MetaMask is a cryptocurrency wallet a gateway to blockchain applications. It can be accessed through an app or through a browser extension. MetaMask is a global community of developers and designers dedicated to making the world a better place with blockchain technology. It is the trailblazing tool enabling user interactions and experience on Web3. It is currently available as a browser extension and as a mobile app on both Android and iOS devices.
wallet creation process includes creating a password, saving your backup phrase, and confirming your backup phrase.
Storing your backup phrase is the most important step. This is because you need it to import your MetaMask wallet. It’s important that you store your backup phrase in a safe place. Anyone with your backup phrase will be able to steal your tokens.
After you’ve stored your backup phrase, you need to verify it to create your wallet.
Configuring the MetaMask wallet to add BSC to MetaMask
Go to settings
In settings select “Networks”
Select the add network button and input the following information:
Network Name: BSC Mainnet
New RPC URL: https://bsc-dataseed1.binance.org/ or https://bsc-dataseed2.binance.org/
ChainID: 56, or 0x38 if 56 doesn’t work
Block Explorer URL: https://bscscan.com/
Once you have saved your network, in the same “Networks” tab you will now see Binance Smart Chain added.
Once you come out of the “Settings” tab, you will notice that your wallet now features the BNB symbol and right under “Assets”, BNB has been added. BNB is the native token on the BSC. If you have done everything correctly, then your wallet screen will look like this.
Don’t forget to Connecting MetaMask to Binance Smart Chain Network and add BSC to MetaMask, before deploying your assets into its DApps. You do this by clicking on the current network at the top of your MetaMask wallet, then clicking on Smart Chain.
Once these steps are followed users will be able to access nearly all Dapps on the Binance Smart Chain. This wallet supports all crypto assets on the BSC, if not listed in your wallet be sure to add the token using the specific token contract address. Overall MetaMask is not the only wallet available to BSC users but it provides access to nearly all Dapps making it a great beginner wallet. This wallet is also compatible with the Ethereum Network through selecting the default “Ethereum Mainnet.”
Congratulations, you have just connected your MetaMask wallet to the Binance Smart Chain network!
