Metamask is a free, open-source browser extension that enables you to interact with the Ethereum blockchain and manage your Ethereum-based assets, such as Ethereum (ETH) and ERC-20 tokens, directly from your web browser. Additionally, Metamask also supports Binance Smart Chain (BSC) and its native token, Binance Coin (BNB), allowing you to manage these assets as well. This comprehensive guide will explain to install and use Metamask for both Ethereum and Binance tokens:
Install the browser extension: To get started, you’ll need to install the browser extension. Visit the Metamask website and click the “Get Chrome Extension” or “Get Firefox Add-on” button, depending on the browser you’re using. Then, follow the prompts on how to install the Metamask extension.
Create a new wallet: Once the extension is installed, click on the Metamask icon in your browser to open the wallet. You’ll be prompted to create a new wallet or import an existing one. If you’re creating a new wallet, you’ll need to choose a secure password and write down your seed phrase. It’s important to keep your seed phrase safe and secure, as it’s the only way to recover your funds if you lose access to your account.
