At the top left corner of the MetaMask interface, select “Ethereum Mainnet” to drop down the menu, then click the “Add Network” button.
The web will direct you to the Settings page, where you can add a blockchain network. We will manually add the BSC mainnet to MetaMask as we first use MetaMask. We just switch BSC to other blockchains at hand in later usage.

Fill in the network detail and click Save.
You successfully connect BSC to MetaMask. Import your BEP20 wallet, and now your BEP20 tokens are displayed.
Step 3: Switching between blockchains on MetaMask
In the previous steps, you are introduced to connecting BSC to MetaMask. If you prefer to connect to other blockchains, click “BNB Chain” as in the picture below to select your network.
