How to install Metamask and configure it for the Binance Smart Chain

Installing and setting up MetaMask

MetaMask is available for download on Chrome and Firefox, iOS and Android for mobile users. We’ll utilize the Firefox version for this article, although the procedures should be similar across platforms.

You’ll want to start by going to the MetaMask Download page. Select whichever platform you’re using and follow the on-screen instructions to install it on your device. Easy!

Then, as directed by the app, complete the setup. Create a wallet by clicking the Create a Wallet button. Make a note of the backup Seed Phrase somewhere hidden (preferably not on an Internet-connected device). , You won’t be able to reclaim your funds when lost without this phrase. On the next page, please double-check that you’ve written them down.

Configuring the wallet

You may have noticed that Metamask is by default configured for Ethereum, let’s change this!

For this, we’ll go in the settings to tell the wallet to use the Binance Smart Chain.

Next, click on the Networks menu.

We’ll need to manually add the Binance Smart Chain network, which isn’t included with MetaMask, by clicking Add Network in the top-right corner. The parameters to put in for each are listed below.

Network Name: Smart Chain


ChainID: 56

Symbol: BNB

Block Explorer URL:

Your Metamask should now be connected to the Binance Smart Chain!

Add the Virgo Token

Now let’s add Virgo’s token to your wallet.

On Metamask’s main menu, click on the Add Token button.

Copy the following contract address and paste it into the Token Contract Address field of MetaMask, then confirm.

Token Contract Address : 0xbEE5E147e6e40433ff0310f5aE1a66278bc8D678
