Avax, Binance, BSC and Metamask

Hi everyone,

I wanted to transfer some Avax freshly bought from Binance to Metamask. The Avax network wasn’t possible so i choosed th BSC. I choosed as reception adress the Metamask Avax Token Receiving adress.

I asked it 10 minutes ago, and, nothing. Is it possible that i lost everything ?

Thanks for your kind support,


i have the same issue, also from couple of hours ago.


You can’t directly send AVAX from Binance to Metamask.

Doing this operation will send your AVAX on Binance Smart Chain ( BSC ) as BEP20 token.

To solve this, you have to add BSC RPC in Metamask => Add custom RPC and mention the following :

Network Name : BSC
RPC URL : https://bsc-dataseed.binance.org
ChainID: 0x38, 56 in decimal (if 56 doesn’t work, try 0x38)
Symbol: BNB
Block Explorer: https://bscscan.com

Then on BSC RPC add token, custom token and mention the following token contract ( AVAX on BSC )


You should now see your AVAX.

To get them back on Binance, you will have to send some BNB on your metamask address ( to pay the fees )

Then on Binance, click deposit -> AVAX -> BEP20 ( BSC ) => it will mention you a 0x like address

!!! Don’t send them back to binance using AVAX network !!! as your tokens are currently on BSC

Finally, to get your AVAX on Avalanche => Withdraw -> Avax -> Avax network ( this time ) and send them to the X-AVAX1 address of your Avalanche wallet ( https://wallet.avax.network )

In the wallet, cross chain X -> C then you can send your AVAX on metamask.

If you are not sure and blocked at any step, to avoid doing something incorrect => contact me on telegram ( https://t.me/Ponay_Avangers ) :slight_smile:

ALWAYS DO YOUR FIRST TRANSACTION with a small amount of tokens in case of mistakes, it will avoid you lot of troubles
