MetaMask is a native crypto wallet built into your web browser and mobile device and designed to transact with the Ethereum blockchain.
You can store, send and receive directly from the MetaMask wallet in a secure environment.
Just like your own encrypted wallet, your private keys are protected and not visible to MetaMask.
There are many cryptocurrencies and blockchains that use MetaMask to transfer value and interact with crypto exchanges.
BNB is one of those.
In order to access your Binance wallet, you will need to manually add the network so MetaMask can retrieve your BNB funds.
In this short guide below, you will see how easy it is for you to add BNB to Metamask.
BNB to MetaMask Short Guide
In order to send BNB from Binance to MetaMask, you need to first add the Binance Smart Chain Network to MetaMask.
Once the Binance Smart Chain Network is added correctly, you’ll be able to send BNB to MetaMask with just a few clicks.
You can do this by toggling between the networks “Ethereum Mainnet” and “Smart Chain.”
Once you’ve copied your BNB address from MetaMask, you can now head over to the BNB withdrawal page on Binance.
In the last step, enter the amount of BNB that you want to send and click on “Withdraw.”
