Funding Your BSC Wallet

Binance Smart chain requires BEP-20 BNB to pay for fees on the chain called "Gas". Think of it like the gas needed to propel your transaction from Point A to Point B, just like your vehicle, unless you drive an EV! Obtaining BEP-20 BNB varies by location, but the primary source would be the Worlds Largest Crypto Exchange, Binance. If Binance isn't available to your region/state, check Coingecko for exchanges that you can use! Make sure to only send BEP20 BNB to your wallet address!

  • Register an account at Binance.com or Binance.us for persons located within the US.

  • Buy BNB using debit card or bank information

  • Go to Wallet and select Withdraw BNB

  • Select BEP20 (Smart Chain)

  • Open Metamask, Open Wallet Tab, Select Wallet Number to Copy

  • Paste In Wallet Address bar, Verify First 4 and last 4 wallet characters are same as characters in metamask

  • SEND SMALL TEST AMOUNT OF BNB IF NOT SURE

  • Confirm Transaction

  • Wait for funds to show up in metamask!

NOTE - Search for places to buy BNB on Binance Smart Chain in your area if Binance is not available. Other Options include

NEVER SHARE YOUR SEED WORDS WITH STRANGERS

NOBODY FROM LOF WILL EVER NEED OR ASK FOR YOUR SEED WORDS. EVER.

Store your seed words somewhere safe, preferably hand written in a safe or lockbox that only you or a beneficiary could ever access. These words are the keys to your castle so to speak.
