Binance Chain Wallet for Desktop

Using Binance Chain Wallet

Once you have a Binance account you need a Binance Chain Wallet to move cryptocurrency onto the smart chain. Click "wallet" when you follow the link:

1) Set up your wallet. Once it is running on your browser or phone, open the wallet in your browser.

Most users of Binance.com can withdraw tokens directly from Binance into their wallet using "BEP20".

US residents need to withdraw to "BEP2." Use the Trust Wallet app or Binance Chain Wallet Chrome extension, as the Binance Bridge is not available to US residents. You must go from Binance, to Binance Chain Network, to Binance Smart Chain Network in that order. The fees for transferring this way are only a few hundredths of a BNB.

Copy your BSC wallet address.

2) Withdraw coins from Binance.com to the BEP20 chain, or Binance.US to the BEP2 chain.

You need BNB to pay transaction fees on Binance Smart Chain. You will have to fund your wallet with a BNB withdraw first. Each transaction costs $2 at most. Then withdraw the tokens you want to use for DeFi after getting BNB.

Click into your Wallet and copy the address for the withdraw from Binance. The Copy icon is the first button to the right of the address, it looks like two sheets of paper on top of each other.

Go to Binance.US or Binance.com and initiate a BEP2/BEP20 withdraw. Paste your wallet address into the "Recipient address." Currently supported tokens on the Binance smart chain are: BTC, ETH, BNB, USDT, BUSD, ADA, BCH, LTC, ADA, DOT, XRP, USDC, DAI, & LINK
