MetaMask is one of the most popular browser extensions in the world, originally created to store ERC-20 tokens on the Ethereum blockchain. However, it is also great for storing tokens from other blockchains, such as the Patreon Token in our case, which runs on the Binance Smart Chain.

Metamask is free and very secure. This application is also perfect for working with web applications.

Connect MetaMask to the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) network

It is very important to be aware of the fact that Metamask is basically a cryptocurrency wallet that supports the Ethereum blockchain. This is not to say that cryptocurrencies built on other blockchains, such as the Patreon Token running on the Binance smart Chain blockchain, could not be stored on it. Moreover, it is especially suitable for storing, sending and receiving Patreon Tokens.

To configure your wallet

After installing MetaMask, you must have seen that it is connected to Ethereum. This is not suitable for use in our case, so I will now show you how to change this.

1. Click the main Ethereum network text in the upper right corner and then add the network.
