MetaMask wallet is secured with high encryption for safe transactions.

Additionally, they do not control any of your private or personal data on any of their servers.

MetaMask is actually a cryptocurrency wallet that is mainly used to interact with the Ethereum cryptocurrency blockchain.

Aside storing your Ethereum, you can also send Binance native coin to your MetaMask wallet as well.

However, process is not straightforward, as the Binance smart chain network is not added to your list of networks by default.

Hence, you will need to manually add it yourself.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to withdraw, transfer or send BNB token from Binance to MetaMask.

Let’s get started already…

How to send BNB to MetaMask

To send BNB from Binance to MetaMask, firstly, you need to add the Binance Smart Chain to the network list.

To do so, click on ‘Custom RPC’ to add a new network using the following mainnet details;

  • Network Name: Binance Smart Chain
  • New RPC URL:
  • Chain ID: 56
  • Currency Symbol (optional): BNB
  • Block Explorer URL (optional):
  • Click ‘Save’.

You’ve successfully added the Binance Smart Chain network to MetaMask!

Make sure it’s the Binance mainnet that you added, and not the testnet network.

Once you’ve added the BSC network, you’ll then be able to send BNB to MetaMask Binance Smart Chain wallet address.

To start using the BSC mainnet, you’ll need to switch the network from ‘Ethereum Mainnet’ to ‘Smart Chain Mainnet’.

After that, you should copy your BNB address by clicking on ‘Account 1’.

Once you’ve copied your BNB address from MetaMask, navigate to the BNB withdrawal page on Binance exchange.

This will open a menu containing options including ‘Overview’, ‘Fiat and Spot’, ‘P2P‘ etc.

Paste your BNB address from MetaMask in the ‘Address’ field, then enter the amount that you want to send and click ‘Withdraw’.

The withdrawal process should typically take from 30 to 60 minutes.

If you don’t have an account on the exchange already, click this link to create one immediately as you may not succeed without KYC.

Can I send BNB to MetaMask from Binance US?

Yes it’s very possible to do it. You just have to purchase the Binance native coin from the US version of the exchange.

Can you send BNB to MetaMask BEP2 or BEP20?

Yes you can send BNB coin to MetaMask BEP2 and BEP20 token wallet addresses, but you must add the mainnet on the wallet.

Is it possible to send BNB to MetaMask from Trust wallet?

Once you have the Binance smart chain mainnet network added to the MetaMask wallet, you can then send BNB from Trust wallet just like you would normally send other cryptocurrencies between wallet addresses.

Over to you

You’ve successfully learned how to send BNB to MetaMask from Binance smart chain network wallet.

Whenever you’re sending a cryptocurrency to another wallet, you need to take note of a couple of things.

You need to make sure the address is correct, and if you enter a wrong address, your crypto investment would be lost.

Secondly, you need to make sure that the network that you’ve selected is right.

Thirdly, you should try and get a reliable VPN (Virtual Private Network) to keep your transaction footprint anonymous.
