MetaMask is one of the most popular software wallets that is available to crypto users across the world. It integrates well with almost all DeFi applications and is very easy to set-up too. However, there is a problem. It does display other chains by default.

Does this mean that you can only use MetaMask on Ethereum? No!

In fact, you can connect MetaMask to multiple chains. In this tutorial, you will learn how to connect your MetaMask wallet to Binance Smart Chain. Let’s dive in.

Installing and setting up MetaMask

Configuring the wallet

Add BSC Mainnet

Transfer BNB to Your MetaMask Wallet

Once you’ve successfully set up the BSC network on your MetaMask wallet, you can easily transfer BNB between other Binance wallets (including your Binance exchange account) and the MetaMask wallet. To do that, you simply need to go to your exchange and on your wallet, select “Withdraw crypto”.

Once you select “Withdraw Crypto”, you will be directed to this screen.

If you haven’t already, you will have to select BNB as your coin. Now, to transfer BNB coins, you will have to copy your MM wallet address. For this, you simply need to click on your account address (on MetaMask) and it will be copied to your clipboard.

Head back to the Binance screen and paste your wallet address. Most likely, Binance will automatically choose the network through which the BNB can be transferred. And in this case, as you can see, it has already chosen the BEP-20 network.

Remember that you must only select the BSC network otherwise, your assets will be lost!

Now, you must enter the amount that you wish to transfer and select “Withdraw”. You will be asked to accept the undertakings – these are just here to remind you that if you select the wrong network, your assets will be lost. Be sure to double-check that only the BSC network has been selected.

Once that is done, your transaction will be completed. You will have to wait until it is processed by the network.

Once it is successful, you will see the exact BNB transferred to your MetaMask wallet.
