Lately, the Metamask wallet has been established as the reliable solution for all the users within the decentralized finance market. It is particularly suitable for working with the Binance Smart Chain network.

Since the great versatility of Metamask we decided to bring up how to properly connect it to BSC.

The algorithm of adding BSC to the MetaMask wallet

Step 1. Open up your MetaMask extension in the internet browser.

Step 2. Choose one of the available options: either sign in to the wallet using your password or import an old one by entering a secret phrase in the right order.

Step 3. After getting access to the wallet, head over to the settings section.

Step 4. After that, press “Networks”.

‍Step 5. Click on the “Add network” button and type in the information concerning BSC stated below:

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

Symbol: BNB

Block Explorer URL: https://bscscan.com/

Step 6. Within the networks menu select BSC Mainnet and you are good to go now.

Step 7. In order to pay transaction fees, do not forget to top off the wallet with sufficient amount of BNB (approximately 0,5 would be enough).

Step 8. Also, for the sake of convenience, use Web3 integration to simplify the process of using Metamask on BSC in various Dapps.

Congratulations, you have just obtained full freedom within the DeFi space by setting up Metamask on the BSC network. Now, it is high time to make a fortune!
