Can I add Binance (BNB) to Metamask?

Yes, Metamask currently supports the Binance Smart Chain (BNB) network because it is an Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatible network. This means that the Binance blockchain is built in the same programming language as Ethereum, which is called solidity.

This means that all applications that are built on Ethereum can be ported to the Binance Smart Chain Chain and vice versa. Metamask currently supports all networks that are built using solidity and are EVM compatible like AVAX, Fantom, Binance Smart Chain, Polygon, and many others.

About Binance Smart Chain (BSC)

Binance Smart Chain is a high-performance blockchain layer 1 protocol with a wide range of applications in the DeFi space. The native token of the Binance Smart Chain network is BNB.

Binance Smart Chain

The Binance team has created a set of powerful tools and services to support the growth of the Binance Smart Chain ecosystem. These include:

  • A DEX aggregator that provides users with liquidity from multiple exchanges in one place
  • A staking portal that allows users to easily stake their BNB tokens and earn rewards
  • A developer portal that provides resources and documentation for building on Binance Smart Chain

The Binance team is also working on a number of other projects to support the growth of the Binance Smart Chain ecosystem, including a cross-chain bridge that will allow users to move assets between Binance Chain and Ethereum.

The Binance Smart Chain protocol is built on top of the Tendermint consensus algorithm, which is known for its high performance and scalability. The Binance team has also implemented a number of features to improve the security of the Binance Smart Chain protocol, including a staking mechanism that requires users to lock up their BNB tokens in order to participate in consensus.
