If you want to view CAKE in your Metamask wallet, here’s a step-by-step guide to help you get started:
How to add CAKE to Metamask
Here are 4 steps to add CAKE to Metamask:
- Go to Metamask and ensure that you are using the Binance Smart Chain
- Select ‘Import Tokens’, and then ‘Import Custom Token’
- Copy the Binance Smart Chain contract from CoinMarketCap
- Double check that CAKE is detected and select ‘Add Custom Token’
Go to Metamask and ensure that you are using the Binance Smart Chain
The first thing you’ll need to do is to ensure that you are using the Binance Smart Chain on Metamask.
If you have not set up the Binance Smart Chain on your Metamask wallet, you can check out this step-by-step guide here.
Select ‘Import Tokens’, and then ‘Import Custom Token’
Once you’re on the Binance Smart Chain, the next step will be to select ‘Import Tokens‘.
On the Binance Smart Chain network, you are only able to import custom tokens.
Copy the Binance Smart Chain contract from CoinMarketCap
For the next part, you can go to the CAKE page on CoinMarketCap.
I prefer using CoinMarketCap to obtain the contract address, as it is one of the most reliable sites with regards to cryptocurrencies.
There is a section called ‘Contracts‘, where you’ll see the BSC contract for CAKE.
You can click on the contract and it will be copied to your clipboard.
Double check that CAKE is detected and select ‘Add Custom Token’
Once you’ve copied the Contract Address, you can paste it in the ‘Token Contract Address‘ field in Metamask.
If you pasted the correct contract address, CAKE should automatically appear as the Token Symbol.
After selecting ‘Add Custom Token‘, you will need to confirm importing CAKE one more time.
Once you’ve successfully imported CAKE to your Metamask wallet, you should see it as one of your assets under the Binance Smart Chain.
This will allow you to view any CAKE that you’ve deposited via the BSC!
While you can view the amount of CAKE that you have on the Pancakeswap platform, you can choose to add it to your Metamask wallet to view your balance too.
