I've sent funds via the Binance Smart Chain to Atomic Wallet. What should I do?
On August 30th, 2020 Binance released a new blockchain – Binance Smart Chain (BSC). This blockchain will work in parallel with its existing Binance Chain. BSC is a smart contract chain built on Ethereum 2.0 technology. It is using the same address format as ETH blockchain.
Atomic Wallet doesn't support BSC as of yet. As BSC uses the same address format as ETH blockchain and many projects have already announced their integration on BSC, there can be some confusion between BSC-based and ETH-based assets.
This guide aims to help you if you have sent tokens based on BSC (BEP-20) to Atomic Wallet. This will require you to use an external service - Metamask. Let's say you've sent LINK BEP-20 to Atomic Wallet LINK ERC20 address (this guide will be true for any other token):
- Create a Metamask account and import your ETH private key into Metamask. You can find a full guide here.
- Then you need to connect your Metamask account to Binance Smart Chain. Click the network selection button near the top of the app.
- Click on Custom RPC.
Enter in the BSC mainnet details as follows and click Save:Network Name: BSC Mainnet
New RPC URL: https://bsc-dataseed1.binance.org/
ChainID: 0x38, 56 in decimal (if 56 doesn’t work, try 0x38)
Block Explorer URL: https://bscscan.com/
- You can now see that BSC was added to the wallet. Click on Add token.
- Choose Custom Token.
- Then you need to past the contract of the token based on the BSC blockchain. Go to https://bscscan.com/. Search for the token. In our example it's LINK. And copy its contract.
- That's it! You should be able to manage BEP-20 token, that you have sent to Atomic Wallet ERC20 address.
