Connecting MetaMask to Binance Smart Chain

After you’ve created a Metamask wallet, you might notice that we’re still dealing with a ETH wallet. At best, this won’t work with Binance Smart Chain DApps. At worst, you could lose funds by sending them to addresses you can’t actually use.

You need to change that “Ethereum Mainnet” to the “Smart Chain”

1. Select Settings from the dropdown menu.

2. On the Settings page, we want to locate the Networks menu.

3. In the Networks menu.

We want to click on “Add Network” button in the top-right corner to manually add the Binance Smart Chain. Below are the parameters to fill in for each.

Network Name: 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.
