Metamask Installation

Installing and setting up MetaMask

MetaMask can be downloaded on Chrome and Firefox, or on iOS and Android if youโ€™re a mobile user. For the purposes of this tutorial, weโ€™ll use the Firefox version, but the instructions will be more or less the same for every platform.
Firstly, youโ€™ll want to head over to the MetaMask Download page. From there, select whichever platform youโ€™re using, and follow the steps to install it on your device. Easy!Next, follow along with the setup specified by the app. Go ahead and click Create a Wallet. Write down the backup seed phrase somewhere secret (preferably not on an Internet-connected device). Without this phrase, your funds canโ€™t be recovered if your device is damaged or lost. Confirm that youโ€™ve written them down on the next page.
And thatโ€™s it! You should now see your wallet, ready to send and receive funds.

How to add Binance Smartchain to Metamask?

You might notice straight away that weโ€™re still dealing with an Ethereum wallet. At best, this wonโ€™t work with Binance Smart Chain DApps. At worst, you could lose funds by sending them to addresses you canโ€™t actually use. Letโ€™s change that. We want to access the Settings to point the wallet towards Binance Smart Chain nodes.
Select Settings from the dropdown menu.
On the Settings page, we want to locate the Networks menu.
The Networks menu.
We want to click Add Network in the top-right corner to manually add the Binance Smart Chain one โ€“ it doesnโ€™t come packaged with MetaMask. Itโ€™s important to note that there are two networks we can use here: the testnet or the mainnet. Below are the parameters to fill in for each.
