BNB Network in MetaMask

Posted on 02 May 2022 02:04 pm

Post installation, Metamask creates a new wallet for you in Ethereum Network. Since Inddais is a token that lives within the Binance Network, you need to add the BSC network to your Metamask application. The BSC network is the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatible and hence you can use the same wallet ID and private key combination to transact BNB coin as well. Simply put, it is just like changing channels on your television.
