Looking to get started with Binance Smart Chain? In this guide, we’ll show you how to get BNB on Binance Smart Chain (BSC).
Binance Smart Chain is a blockchain that is compatible with Ethereum’s ecosystem of tools and protocols. BSC uses Ethereum’s Virtual Machine (EVM) to process transactions.
Binance Smart Chain also uses Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus which makes it more energy-efficient than Proof of Work (PoW) blockchains.
The easiest way to get BNB on Binance Smart Chain is to use the Trust Wallet app. Trust Wallet is a mobile wallet that supports a variety of cryptocurrencies including BNB.
Trust Wallet is available for both Android and iOS devices.
Once you have installed Trust Wallet, open the app and tap on the “+” icon in the top-right corner. search for “Binance Smart Chain” in the list of supported coins and select it.
On the next screen, enter how much BNB you want to buy and tap on the “Buy Now” button.
You will be taken to a screen where you can review the details of your transaction. Once you are sure everything is correct, tap on the “Confirm” button.
Your BNB will be sent to your Trust Wallet immediately.
If you don’t want to use Trust Wallet, you can also get BNB on Binance Smart Chain by using MetaMask. MetaMask is a browser extension that allows you to interact with decentralized applications (dApps) without having to run a full node.
MetaMask also supports a variety of Ethereum-based tokens including BNB.
To use MetaMask, first install the extension for your preferred browser (Chrome, Firefox, Brave, Edge). Once MetaMask is installed, click on the extension icon and create a new wallet.
You will be given a seed phrase that you should write down and store in a safe place. Once your wallet is created, click on the “Add Token” button.
Search for “Binance Smart Chain” in the list of supported tokens and select it. On the next screen, enter how much BNB you want to buy and click on the “Add Token” button.
Your BNB will be sent to your MetaMask wallet immediately.
Once you have your BNB, you can use it to trade or participate in DeFi protocols on Binance Smart Chain or transfer it to another wallet or exchanges that support BSC.
