*** UPDATE - Binance Chain Wallet is now called "Binance Wallet"
NOTES FROM THIS LESSON
It looks like the Chrome “Binance Chain Wallet” extension is now called “Binance Wallet” Just want to confirm. Is this right?
Yes good catch… looks like they just changed the name.
Just got back into learning after a break. I’ve set up my wallets. The binance chain wallets now have a different account number after entering my password? The metamask is the same account number as when I originally set up. Perhaps I should set upthe binance ones again? Thanks.
That’s a great question for the forums if you need help troubleshooting. It depends on what you are looking at. The number for the Binance Chain and the Binance Smart Chain will be different when you switch between the two accounts by selecting the different networks at the top dropdown. Normally it will match your Metamask wallet address.
My question is how do we get the BNB into Metamask to begin with? Did I miss something somewhere?
Yes this is the lesson you want.
Also in the HOWTOs there are several posts showing a few different ways to do this.
I already have a DEX wallet via Exodus. Could I simply send ETH over to my Metamask then convert it to BNB (Bep-20)?
Need to watch again. it seem to be a little tricky. It’s just the format of the coin. It’s not a problem if you buy BEP2 or BEP20 They are worth the same value. But if you want to put your BNB coin onto MetaMask you must convert it to BEP20. That is just how it works.
I have just set up my Binance Chain Wallet and while recording my private keys I noticed that the BSC and ETH private keys are the same. I double checked and found that the public keys are the same as well. Is this correct and if not what should I do about it please?
I have noticed the same. Anyone know why??
That is the normal way it is. The wallet address will be same…. when you switch to BSC and Etherium Mainnet they are different blockchains but it will be the same address.
I am trying to understand the difference between the BEP2 vs BEP-20, when would you buy BEP2 coins? If you don’t ever buy the BEP2 you should not have to worry about converting them to BEP-20 is this correct…or are you going to be buying the BEP2 for some reason? Can someone please help?? Thanks…
Great question. It’s just the format of the coin. It’s not a problem if you buy BEP2 or BEP20 They are worth the same value. But if you want to put your BNB coin onto MetaMask you must convert it to BEP20. That is just how it works.
The Binance Wallet is now set up. Getting closer to being ready to trade.
