About Metamask and BSC

In November 2021, MetaMask surpassed the 21M Monthly Active Users milestone, making it the most popular Ethereum-based wallet. Later on, in March 2022, it raised $450M in a Series D round, valuing it at $7B. 

Notable features of MetaMask:

  • Friendly and easy-to-use UI.
  • Easy to interact with other supported Dapps.
  • An in-app DEX aggregator that allows users to swap ERC20 tokens natively.
  • Data is owned by users who hold the passphrase.

What is BSC?

BNB Smart Chain (BSC), formerly Binance Smart Chain, is a blockchain platform that was launched with the aim to facilitate the growth of Decentralized Applications. It allows developers to deploy their ideas on the blockchain with Smart Contract.

The blockchain uses BNB as the native token, serving as the gas fee. In addition, BNB holders on Binance have more benefits, such as fee discounts or token launch subscriptions. Therefore, BNB is tied to the growth of Binance.

Highlights of BNB Smart Chain:

  • One of the top 3 blockchain platforms by Market Cap.
  • Founded by Changpeng Zhao, CEO of Binance.
  • BSC is an EVM-compatible blockchain that has a huge community of developers.
  • Many trends were ignited on BSC, such as GameFi, IGO, etc.

Since BSC is an EVM-compatible blockchain, it can be connected via MetaMask. Using MetaMask lets users interact with Dapps onBSC such as PancakeSwap to swap tokens.

Furthermore, Coin98 Super App also supports BSC. You can create BEP20 wallets on the Coin98 Super App.
