MetaMask is a cryptocurrency wallet that is mainly used to interact with the Ethereum blockchain.
If you want to store your Ethereum, you can send it to MetaMask.
MetaMask is secure as everything is encrypted in your browser.
They also don’t control any of your private or personal data on their servers.
In addition to Ethereum, you can also send your BNB to your MetaMask wallet.
However, sending BNB to your MetaMask is not easy.
This is because the Smart Chain network is not automatically added to the list of networks.
Then, you will have to add it manually.
In this guide, you will learn how to withdraw, transfer or send BNB from Binance to MetaMask.
How to send BNB from Binance to MetaMask
To send BNB from Binance to MetaMask, you must first add Binance Smart Chain Network to MetaMask.
After adding Binance Smart Chain Network, you will be able to send BNB to MetaMask.
You can do this by changing your network from “Ethereum Mainnet” to “Smart Chain”.
Then, copy your BNB address by clicking “Account 1”.
After copying your BNB address from MetaMask, go to the BNB withdrawal page on Binance.
Then, paste your BNB address from MetaMask into the “Address” field.
Finally, enter the amount of BNB you want to send and click “Withdraw”.
The withdrawal process will typically take 30 to 60 minutes.
1. Open MetaMask and click “Custom RPC”
First, you need to open your MetaMask wallet by clicking on the MetaMask icon on the Chrome toolbar.
After clicking on the MetaMask icon, enter the password to unlock the wallet.
Once you are on your wallet, you will see that you are on the “Ethereum Mainnet” network.
Click “Ethereum Mainnet” to open a list of networks.
The list of networks includes “Ropsten Test Network”, “Kovan Test Network”, “Rinkeby Test Network” and others.
To send BNB to your MetaMask wallet, you must first add the “Smart Chain” network.
To do this, click “Custom RPC” to add a new network.
2. Copy Mainnet fields
After clicking “Custom RPC”, you will land on the “Networks” page where you can add a new network.
Now you need to add the network “Smart Chain”.
To add the “Smart Chain” network, you need to know its fields.
To find them, you need to go to this article: https://academy.binance.com/en/articles/connecting-metamask-to-binance-smart-chain.
In the article, you will find a couple of networks.
This includes the mainnet and the testnet.
You must add the mainnet to MetaMask and not the testnet.
The mainnet contains the following fields:
- Network Name: Smart Chain
- New RPC URL: https://bsc-dataseed.binance.org/
- Chain ID: 56
- Currency symbol (optional): BNB
- Block Explorer URL (optional): https://bscscan.com
Copy these fields and paste them into the next step.
3. Paste Mainnet fields to MetaMask
Now that you have copied the mainnet network fields, you need to paste them into the respective fields.
On the “Networks” page on MetaMask, you will see multiple fields.
This includes “Network Name”, “New RPC URL”, “Chain ID”, “Currency Symbol” and “Block Explorer URL”.
Here’s what you need to paste into the fields:
- Paste “Smart Chain” into the “Network Name” field.
- Paste “https://bsc-dataseed.binance.org/” into the “New RPC URL”.
- Enter “56” in the “CHAIN ID” field.
- Enter “BNB” in the “Currency symbol” field.
- Paste “https://bscscan.com” into the “Block Explorer URL” field.
After pasting the fields, you need to save your changes.
Click “Save” to add the “Smart Chain” network to MetaMask.
You have successfully added the Binance Smart Chain network to MetaMask!
4. Copy your BNB address to MetaMask
After adding the Binance Smart Chain network to MetaMask, you will automatically connect to it.
In the “Network” drop-down box, you will see that the “Smart Chain” option is selected.
This means that you are on the Binance Smart Chain network.
If not, click the drop-down box and select “Smart Chain”.
Now you need to copy your BNB address.
To do this, click “Account 1” to copy your BNB address to the clipboard.
5. Log in to Binance and pick up your BNB
After copying your BNB address to MetaMask, you need to go to Binance and log in to your account.
Once you are on Binance, click “Wallet” on the top navigation bar.
A menu will open containing several options including “Overview”, “Fiat and Spot”, “P2P” and others.
Click on “Fiat and Spot” to go to your fiat and spot wallet.
Once you are on your fiat and spot wallet, you will see a list of cryptocurrencies you own and their balances.
Scroll down until you find your BNB balance.
On your BNB balance, click “Withdrawal” to go to the withdrawal page.
6. Send your BNB to MetaMask
After clicking “Withdraw”, you will land on the BNB withdrawal page.
On the page, you will see 3 fields including “Address”, “Network” and “Amount”.
First, make sure that “BNB” is checked in the “Coin” drop-down box.
If it is not, click the “Coin” drop-down box and select “BNB”.
Secondly, paste your BNB address from MetaMask into the “Address” field.
You should have copied your BNB address in the fourth step.
Thirdly, select the “BEP20” network in the “Network” drop-down box.
In most cases, the network “BEP20” will be selected automatically.
Fourth, enter the amount of BNB you want to send to MetaMask in the “Quantity” field.
Finally, click “Withdrawal” to withdraw your BNB.
After clicking “Withdrawal”, you need to complete the security verification.
This includes entering a security code that will be sent to your mobile number.
Once the security code is complete, the withdrawal process will begin.
The withdrawal process will typically take 30 to 60 minutes.
Once completed, you will see your BNB balance on MetaMask.

Whenever you send a cryptocurrency to another wallet, you have to take note of a couple of things.
First, you need to make sure that the address you’re sending to is correct.
If you entered the wrong address, your cryptocurrency will be lost.
Secondly, you need to make sure that the selected network is correct.
If you selected the wrong network, the platform may not support it.
As a result, your cryptocurrency will be lost.
