Configuring your Metamask Wallet to access the Binance Smart Chain (Chrome web extension)

Metamask, by default, interacts with the Ethereum blockchain. TreatDAO operates under the Binance Smart Chain network. If you fail to configure your Metamask wallet for Binance Smart Chain, you may end up losing your funds by sending them to non-Binance Smart Chain addresses. Follow these steps to configure your Metamask wallet to the right network and ensure you are sending your funds to the correct address!

1. After installing Metamask and creating a wallet, you will notice that the wallet is interacting with the Ethereum Mainnet. To change this, click on the “Ethereum Mainnet” then select “Add Network”.

2. You will need to manually add the Binance Smart Chain network. Once you are in the Networks page of Metamask, input the following parameters:

Network Name: Smart Chain

New RPC URL: https://bsc-dataseed.binance.org/

ChainID: 56

Symbol: BNB

Block Explorer URL: https://bscscan.com

3. After you input the parameters above, click “Save” to successfully add the Binance Smart Chain network. Once you return to the main page, you will notice that the network has been changed to Binance Smart Chain and the primary token used will be changed from ETH to BNB.

4. Your Metamask wallet is now configured for the Binance Smart Chain network!


Installing Metamask on your Smartphone (iOS users)

  1. On your iPhone’s browser, go to https://metamask.io/download/

  2. Tap the “iOS” button then select “Install Metamask for iPhone”.

  3. You will be redirected to the App Store where you can download the Metamask application. Download the app and wait for the installation to complete.

  4. After installing, open the Metamask app and tap the “Get Started” button.

  5. Since we already created a wallet through the Metamask web extension, we will just import it to Metamask’s mobile version. Select “Import using Secret Recovery Phrase”.

  6. Metamask will request your permission to gather usage data for improving the platform. If you agree, click on “I Agree” button.

  7. Input the secret recovery phrase that you saved when you first created an account through the Metamask web extension then create a password. You can use the same password you created for the web extension version of Metamask or create an entirely new password.
