1. Go to the MetaMask download page and select the platform you’re using. Then, follow the steps to install it on your device.

2. Next, click [Create a new wallet] and follow the instructions.

3. It’s recommended to secure your wallet with a secret recovery phrase (also known as a seed phrase). This phrase will work like a master key to your wallet and funds.

4. Write down your secret recovery phrase and save it in a secure place. Without this phrase, your funds can’t be recovered if your device is damaged or lost. Never share your secret recovery phrase with anyone.

5. Enter the missing words to confirm your phrase and click [Confirm].

6. That’s it! You should now see your wallet, ready to send and receive funds.

But wait, isn’t MetaMask an Ethereum wallet? It is, but actually, it’s quite easy to connect it to the BNB Chain. This way, you can use a familiar UI when interacting with BNB Chain.

  1. Go to [Ethereum Mainnet] at the top left corner and click on [Add network].

  2. Next, find the BNB Chain on the list and click [Add].

  3. Check the network details and click [Approve].

  4. You have now added the BNB Chain network to your MetaMask!

Keep in mind that you can’t simply transfer funds from one blockchain network to another (e.g., transfer from BNB Chain to Ethereum). BNB Chain transfer can only be made to and from BNB Chain addresses. Please see instructions on how to bridge tokens to BNB Chain here. (LINK)
