If you have sent funds from your Binance account to your MetaMask wallet, you will have to do the following:
Check the transaction on a blockchain explorer
First, you will need to verify the network on which the transaction took place. You can do that by checking the withdrawal details on Binance:
Then you will need to go to the network’s explorer. Here are a few examples:
Etherscan for Ethereum mainnet
Bscscan for BSC (Binance Smart Chain)
Polygonscan for Polygon
Snowtrace for Avax (Avalanche)
Once on the blockchain explorer, you will need to search for your MetaMask address or for the transaction ID, to make sure that the funds have arrived in your account.
On the overview section, you will be able to see your token balances. If it is the native token (BNB, ETH, Matic, Avax), it will appear in the Balance section.
If it is not the native token it will appear in the dropdown menu in the Token section.
Add the network to MetaMask and display the token if required
In order to add a network, please check the following:
For the desktop extension:
For the mobile version:
After adding the network, if your token is not the native token of that network, you will have to display it as a custom token.
On the blockchain explorer, go to the Token section and click on the token you received.
In order to add the custom token you will need to copy the token’s contract then go to Metamask, and under the assets tab you will find “Import tokens”, there you will be able to add the token using the token’s contract.
- If you have sent the tokens on the wrong network, you can always use a bridge to get that token on the desired network.
You can use Anyswap to bridge tokens between the most common networks.
Take note that in order to bridge the tokens, you will need to have funds in the network’s native token in order to pay for the gas fees. (These are required for any transaction)
