How to participate in a presale on DxSale using MetaMask wallet
Installing and setting up MetaMask
MetaMask is a smart chain wallet that comes in a browser extension, which allows you to use decentralized applications (dApps) right from your browser.
First of all, head over to https://metamask.io/download and install MetaMask as a browser extension
Once you have it installed, create a new account or import private keys from an existing one, by following the instructions in MetaMask.
Now, we have to configure MetaMask wallet to work with Binance Smart Chain.
To do that, open chain selection drop-down and select the Custom RPC option.
Now, use the following values to add Binance Smart Chain to MetaMask networks.
Name: Binance Smart Chain
RPC URL: https://bsc-dataseed.binance.org/
Chain ID: 56
Currency symbol: BNB
Block explorer: https://bscscan.com
Once submitted, MetaMask should automatically switch to BSC network. To confirm, check that Binance Smart Chain is selected and currency logo and symbol are changed to BNB.
MetaMask is ready, now let's move to DxSale!
