How to add RPC networks to Metamask?

MetaMask is the real crypto wallet that can be used to connect to the Ethereum blockchain. Ethereum-based tokens, such as ERC-20, 721, etc. are supported by the MetaMask wallet.

Metamask has Ethereum ERC-20 network by default, but that’s so easy to connect it with any network you use. For example – Binance Smart Chain, Polygon Network, Avalanche. It will enable you to make transactions through MetaMask.

Binance & MetaMask: How To Add Binance Smart Chain and other networks to MetaMask

Step 1: MetaMask Installation & Wallet Creation

If you do not own a wallet, the first thing that needs to be done is to download and install the Chrome extension of MetaMask.

  • Open Chrome and visit the official Metamask website and click “Download Now”
  • On the download page, select “Install MetaMask on Chrome”
  • After installation, you’ll be asked if you’re “New to MetaMask?” along with several options like “Import Wallet” and “Create A Wallet”
  • If it’s the first time you’re using MetaMask, click on “Create A Wallet”, or else, click on “Import Wallet” for your secret recovery phrase.

On selecting the former, you’ll get a recovery phrase that can be used to get access to your MetaMask wallet. The verification of this recovery phrase will be the last step to wallet creation.

Step 2: Wallet Configuration

As mentioned earlier, MetaMask is used to connect with the Ethereum blockchain. But to connect MetaMask to the different chain you should change some settings:

  • On the Settings page, select “Network”
  • To add Binance Smart Chain (BSC) manually, click “Add Network” in the upper-right corner.

  • Once again open MetaMask and click on “Add Token”
  • Paste the copied contract address in your MetaMask and select “Next”
  • Complete the process by selecting “Add Token” How To Add Binance Smart Chain To MetaMask
