Installing and configuring MetaMask
MetaMask can be downloaded on Chrome and Firefox, or iOS and Android if you’re a mobile user. For the purposes of this tutorial, we’ll be using the Firefox version, but the instructions will be more or less the same for each platform.
First, you’ll want to head to the MetaMask download page. From there, select the platform you are using and follow the steps to install it on your device. Easy!
Then follow the configuration indicated by the application. Go ahead and click Create Wallet. Write down the backup seed phrase in a secret location (preferably not on an internet-connected device). Without this phrase, your funds cannot be recovered if your device is damaged or lost. Confirm that you have noted them on the next page.
And that’s all! You should now see your wallet, ready to send and receive funds.
Configuring the wallet
Nevertheless: 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.
Binance smart chain metamask SETUP DETIALS
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 Meta Mask. It’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.
Mainnet (This is the one you are probably looking for)
Network Name: Smart Chain
New RPC URL: https://bsc-dataseed.binance.org/
Block Explorer URL: https://bscscan.com
