Configure MetaMask Wallet network
This page contains information on how to configure your MetaMask wallet to use Binance Smart Chain network.
After creation of wallet, you might notice straight away that the wallet is dealing with the Ethereum network, and the crypto currency is ETH. On Featured, you need to be connected to Binance Smart Chain (BSC) and use ecrypto currency BNB for transactions.
You can simply go to our platform and "Connect Wallet". If the system detected that the network is not BSC, you will be prompted to switch the network.
Click 'Approve' and we will switch the network for you. You will be able to see immediately from the wallet that the network should be on Binance Smart Chain and the cryptocurrency label BNB.

Configure the network to Binance Smart Chain Manually

In case the network is not updated automatically, below are steps to change network setting manually.
Firstly, launch the browser extension (for Desktop/Laptop) or wallet app (mobile device user). The wallet browser extension can be found on the upper right corner of your browser.
Open "Settings" and locate "Networks" on the menu.
Select Settings from the dropdown menu.
We want to click Add Network in the top-right corner to manually add the Binance Smart Chain one – it doesn’t come packaged with MetaMask. It’s important to note that there are two networks we can use here: the testnet or the mainnet. The testnet is usually reserve for developer for testing purpose, you should setup Mainnet for purchasing BNB.


Network Name: Binance Smart Chain
ChainID: 56
Symbol: BNB
Block Explorer URL:
Once you Save the Network and return to the main view, you’ll notice two things: the network has automatically been set to the one you just entered, and the units are no longer denominated in ETH, but in BNB.
