To buy Puppy Coin you need first to connect to Binance Smart Chain. Start by downloading MetaMask on Chrome or Firefox, and for mobile users on iOS and Android phones. Today, we will use the Firefox version, but the instructions are pretty much the same for every search engine platform.
Download and configure MetaMask
Initially, you will want to go to the MetaMask download page. From there, select to use the application and follow the steps to install it on your device.
Then follow the setting instructions specified by the application. Go ahead and click Create a Wallet. Write the original backup phrase-words somewhere secret (preferably not on a device connected to the Internet). Without this phrase-words, your coins can not be recovered if your device is damaged or lost. Make sure you wrote them down correctly on the next page.
You are done! Your wallet should be ready to send and receive coins.
Configure the wallet
You can notice that we are still dealing with an Ethereum wallet. At best, this will not work with Binance Smart Chain. In the worst case, you could lose coins by sending them to addresses you can’t really use.
We want to change that and access the Settings to direct the wallet to the Binance Smart Chain nodes.
Locate the Networks menu on the Settings page.
Click Add Network in the upper right-hand corner to manually add the Binance Smart Chain mainnet which is not included with MetaMask. Below are the parameters you need to complete for mainnet.
