BINANCE SMART CHAIN
HOW TO CONFIGURE METAMASK
1. Installing and setting up MetaMask
MetaMask can be downloaded on Chrome and Firefox, or on iOS and Android if you’re a mobile user.
Write down the backup seed phrase somewhere secret. Without this phrase, your funds can’t be recovered if your device is damaged or lost.
2. Configuring the wallet
You might notice straight away that we’re still dealing with an Ethereum 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.
Let’s change that. We want to access the Settings to point the wallet towards Binance Smart Chain nodes.
Select Settings from the dropdown menu.
3. Locate the Networks menu
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 can’t be recovered if your device is damaged or lost. Confirm that you’ve written them down on the next page.
And that’s it! You should now see your wallet, ready to send and receive funds.
4. Configure Mainnet
Binance Smart Chain Mainnet, aka BSC MAINNET
Network Name: Smart Chain
New RPC URL: https://bsc-dataseed.binance.org/
Block Explorer URL: https://bscscan.com
Enjoy instant and inexpensive transactions!
You can now send BNB to you wallet from your Binance account (BNB > Withdraw > Binance Smart Chain (BSC), or use Binance Bridge, the safe, fast and most secure way to bring cross-chain assets to Binance chains. (see below for more details).

HOW TO BRIDGE FUNDS TO BSC
1. Go to Binance Bridge
Go to bridge and send some ETH to your BSC address. This can be your same ETH address, another MetaMask account, (or any ETH wallet you control the keys to and can change RPC connection) – once you connect your wallet to BSC, you can basically operate with the same addresses.
2. Send assets cross-chain
Connect your MetaMask wallet to the bridge once it is connected to the right network: “Binance Smart Chain“. Once you send ETH to the address labeled as “Destination”, the bridge will send it first to a Binance address from where it will be sent to you BSC wallet, and show as Binance Peg Ethereum Token.
It is now important that you select the following option:
