Before the upcoming IDO is officially revealed, let’s go through the basics to make sure you’re prepared for future events. We’re working on offering you multi-chain experiences as well, but first, we will show you the simplest way to integrate the Binance Smart Chain network into the MetaMask wallet using the steps below. Let’s get started!

How to Connect MetaMask with Binance Smart Chain

By default, the MetaMask wallet only supports and displays tokens that are pre-installed on the Ethereum blockchain. If you intend to use your MetaMask wallet to store and trade BEP20 tokens, you must first connect it to the Binance Smart Chain, which supports BEP20 tokens. Here’s how to go about it:

STEP 1: Install the MetaMask wallet on your phone or a browser extension on Chrome or Brave by going to the official MetaMask website. You can pin the extension to the extension bar in the right corner of your browser once it’s been installed and configured.

Choose Install MetaMask for your browser and click “Download” button

STEP 2: On the browser, click the wallet extension icon that appears beside the website link column. To alter or adjust your wallet’s blockchain option, open the extension and click on “Ethereum Mainnet.”

STEP 3: Select “Custom RPC” from the drop-down menu. A form will appear, collecting information about the blockchain network you want to link to your MetaMask wallet.

STEP 4: Enter the details in the form as mentioned below:

Network name: Binance Smart Chain


ChainID: 56

Currency Symbol: BNB

Block Explorer:

STEP 5: After you’ve added the BSC network to your wallet, go back to the “Ethereum Mainnet” menu and pick Binance Smart Chain to switch to the BSC network. Instead of the Ethereum Mainnet, the wallet will begin to display tokens and balances held on the Binance Smart Chain, i.e. BEP20 standard tokens.

⚠️ PLEASE NOTE: Never send a BEP20 token from the Binance Smart Chain to an Ethereum wallet address or the other way around. The tokens will never be found. Simply said, many tokens are supported across various blockchain networks, but they are not transferable from one to the other.
