To connect to Featured by Binance, here are steps required:
- 1.Create a crypto wallet
- 3.Buy BNB in the crypto wallet
- 4.Complete Profile and Sign on your wallet
At the end of this page, you can find how to Capture a screen that shows your new Profile name and BNB Balance.
The first step is to create a crypto wallet. This digital wallet is similar to a real life physical wallet, or other online accounts. The wallet allows you to access your cryptocurrency and other assets, such as NFTs. A wallet is separate from the Featured site, meaning that you can access your cryptocurrency (and NFTs) across multiple platforms and devices.
Featured is compatible with MetaMask, Trust Wallet, Torus, and Binance Chain Wallet. So if you have any of these already, you can use them and skip this step. For this guide, we recommend using TrustWallet on your mobile device, and using Featured website on your desktop / laptop browser.
On your smartphone, install the Trust Wallet app "Trust: Crypto & Bitcoin Wallet" through the App Store / Google Play / Android.
Follow the instructions to complete the installation.
Now launch the app from your mobile device. You will be greeted with two options: You can either log in to your Trust Wallet account, or create a new one. Most likely you will want to create a new one, so click [Create a new wallet].
On next screen, click the [check box] and press [Continue] .
Continue and click the [check box] and press [Continue] again.
You will be given a seed phrase. This phrase will consist of at least 12 words that must be kept safe. You CANNOT LOSE these and you also CANNOT SHARE them or you will risk losing your wallet account forever.
Follow the instructions and complete the seed phrase test. Then your wallet is created.
On the wallet's main page, you can click on [Smart Chain] row to view details about your Binance Smart Chain BNB account and its balance.
Your wallet address will be the long string of numbers and letters, having a prefix "0x". You can copy your full wallet address by click on [Copy] on your BNB detail page.
Now your Trust Wallet account is created and ready to go!
Now that you have your wallet, you need to connect it to Featured and create your profile.
On the Featured homepage, click the yellow [Connect Wallet] button in the top right corner. Select the wallet you want to connect, in this case select [Trust Wallet].
After that, you will see a QR code
Now use your mobile device, open the Trust Wallet app and go to the menu [Settings] > [WalletConnect] to open the Connection page. Then click [New Connection]
You can then scan the QR code that is shown on the Featured website on your desktop / laptop.
Once the QR scanning step is complete, your Trust Wallet prompts you to confirm the connection to Featured. Once you click [Connect], you’ll see your connection details, as well as the crypto wallet address you’ll use for browsing Featured.
Your Featured account will be connected and linked to your wallet.
