You are registered with MetaMask. At the same time, your MetaMask initially works on the ETH blockchain. It is visible here. We need to fix this.
How to add a new BEP-20 type network?
We go to the wallet
Open the account in the MetaMask wallet
Go to the settings page
From the very bottom we find the networks and click "Add a new network" ("custom RPC")
Enter the following data
Network name: BSC Mainnet
URL RPC https://bsc-dataseed1.binance.org/
URL of explorer: https://bscscan.com/
6. After that, click "Save" to add the BSC Mainnet to your MetaMask wallet.
Congratulations! 🙂You now have a MetaMask wallet configured for BSC. You can now store your BEP20 tokens and connect your MetaMask wallet to DApps on the Binance chain, i.e. PancakeSwap decentralized exchange.
Expand the list of networks and select BSC Mainnet.
You can add and manage all BEP20 tokens from this network.
By default, only BNB will be added to your account.
First you need to fund your account in BNB (BEP 20). After that add two new custom tokens BEP20 USDT and BEP20 NMX. And now in order.
Important! You are on the BSC network and can only add BEP20 tokens, not ERC20.
How to fund BNB balance using Binance account?
Top up your BNB balance using your Binance account :
Go to your BNB wallet on Binance and press withdrawal
Copy wallet address to MetaMask
Paste this address into the recipient line
Choosing Binance Smart Chain (BEP20)
- We send the desired amount of BNB with minimal fees
- After a while, we check the balance on the MetaMask wallet. The money has arrived! Hooray. It doesn't take more than 2-3 minutes. We need BNB in order to pay them commissions for transactions on the DEX Pancake swap. You don't need much, so expect more than $30-$40 in BNB to make the biggest transactions.
How to add USDT token (BEP-20)?
Now add USDT BEP-20.
To add a custom Binance-Peg BUSD-T (BEP20) token:
1. Click Add Token - choose your own token and then enter the token contract address 0x55d398326f99059ff775485246999027b3197955. Click next.
2. Click add tokens (these tokens were already on my address. I will explain how to send them there as well).
3. Voila! USDT token added.
Now we transfer USDT. There are several options to consider here:
Condition 1: You have USDT on Nominex or any other exchange
Condition 2: You have USDT on Binance
Condition 3: You don't have USDT at all
In the first case:
You transfer USDT from Nominex or any other exchange to Binance, while choosing a network not ERC-20, but TRC-20 to minimize fees.
In the second case:
If you already have or have USDT in your Binance account, you need to send USDT to the MetaMask wallet address on the BSC Mainnet network, while selecting the BEP20 network (after adding the token to the wallet).
In the third case:
You just need to buy USDT for any cryptocurrency or fiat on the Binance exchange, and after that follow the instructions in paragraph 2.
How to add NMX (BEP-20)?
Sending will be carried out from the Nominex exchange to the Metamask wallet.
In Metamask, you will also need to add an NMX coin.
Add it the same way you added USDT.
NMX smart contract address:
As a result, you will have some BNB, USDT and NMX in your wallet.
You can find a complete list of BEP20 tokens and details of their contracts at https://bscscan.com/tokens.
Note: Since all of these tokens are built on the Binance Smart Chain, you will need BNB to cover the fees. This is the same as ETH, but instead of ETH, you will have to use BNB as gas payment.
