How to connect the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) to MetaMask

MetaMask is initially only able to manage tokens associated with the Ethereum and ETH chains. Therefore, you may lose your assets if you transfer tokens from the “Binance Smart Chain (BSC)” to an address displayed in the Ethereum chain.

Therefore, we will now add the “Binance Smart Chain (BSC)” to your meta mask and set it up so that you can deposit tokens associated with the Binance Smart Chain (BSC)!

1. Open the Wallet Extension

Open the Wallet Extension (MetaMask) and select the topmost network drop-down menu labeled “Ethereum Mainnet” in the image.

2. Add a network (1)

Next, select “Add Network.”

3. Add Network(2)

Finally, enter the following information in each field shown in the image above, after completing the input, select “Save” to complete the addition of the Binance Smart Chain (BSC).

Main Net

Network Name: Binance Smart Chain
Chain ID: 56
Currency symbol: BNB
URL for block explorer:


Network name Smart Chain – Testnet
URL for new RPC
Chain ID 97
Currency symbol BNB
URL for block explorer

4. Setup complete

You now connect to the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) in your MetaMask account!”

Difference between main net and test net

Generally, the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) we use is the “mainnet.” Testnet is the network for testing in the development environment, so make no mistake.

When you want to perform tests in the development environment, you should add a testnet. In this testnet, you can Claim BNB for free at “Binance Smart Chain Faucet.” Connect the test net to MetaMask to obtain an address.

After obtaining the BNBN, you can perform operations such as swap and liquidity with tokens on the BSC chain used on the testnet. You can then swap tokens on the BSC chain for use in the testnet.
