What is NFTD?
NFTD is a smart NFT supermarket system for digitals products. In this smart shopping system, the sellers and each product they sell are identified as a unique tokenID. Once the transaction is completed, the buyer’s ownership will be confirmed immediately.

Use Cases:
Getting the right to use the copyright of music or logos for a product on the market today is very complicated and time-consuming. With the help of NFTs, this process will be done quickly and accurately.

Configuring the wallet

You might notice straight away that we’re still dealing with an Ethereum wallet. At best, this won’t work with Binance Smart Chain DApps. At worst, you could lose funds by sending them to addresses you can’t use.

Let’s change that. We want to access the Settings to point the wallet towards Binance Smart Chain nodes.

Select Settings from the dropdown menu.

On the Settings page, we want to locate the Networks menu.

The Networks menu

We want to click Add Network in the top-right corner to manually add the Binance Smart Chain one — it doesn’t come packaged with MetaMask. It’s important to note that there are two networks we can use here: the testnet or the mainnet. Below are the parameters to fill in for each.

Binance Smartchain Mainnet

This is the one you are probably looking for –

Network Name: Binance Smart Chain


ChainID: 56

Symbol: BNB

Block Explorer URL:

Once you Save the Network and return to the main view, you’ll notice two things: the network has automatically been set to the one you just entered, and the units are no longer denominated in ETH, but in BNB.

We’ve connected to the mainnet.

Closing thoughts

MetaMask has long been the go-to passport for accessing the sprawling Ethereum landscape. But, with minimal effort, anyone can configure it to point towards Binance Smart Chain. This allows them to enjoy years of development put into making MetaMask an indispensable tool for anyone interacting with decentralized applications.
