How To Add BUSD To Metamask

Last updated on June 8th, 2022

BUSD is one of the more well-established stablecoins, and it can be added to multiple networks.

Here’s a guide to show you how to add BUSD to some of the networks that are supported by Metamask.

Can you add BUSD to Metamask?

You are able to add BUSD to your Metamask wallet on any networks that are compatible with the Ethereum network (e.g. Harmony and Velas). However, you aren’t able to add BUSD to your Metamask wallet using networks that are not compatible with the Ethereum network (e.g. Solana or Binance Chain).

There are many networks that you can add BUSD to, which you can view on the BUSD page on CoinMarketCap.

You are able to add BUSD to networks that are supported by Metamask, which are mainly those which are compatible with the Ethereum network.

However, BUSD can exist on other networks, such as Solana and Binance Chain. You will not be able to add these versions of BUSD to your Metamask wallet since Metamask does not support them.

Conclusion

You are able to add BUSD to a variety of networks on Metamask.

This is similar to other multi-chain cryptocurrencies, such as USDC, DAI or MIM.

However, there are still some versions of USDT (such as the Solana version) which can’t be added to Metamask. As such, it will be good to double check if Metamask and the platform that you’re withdrawing from both support the network that you intend to use for the withdrawal.
