How to Add Binance Smart Chain to Metamask?

What is Binance Smart Chain?

Binance Smart Chain is a cutting-edge technology that enhances the Binance Chain platform’s programmability and interoperability. Binance Smart Chain uses a 21-validator with Proof of Staked Authority (PoSA) consensus for faster block times and lower costs. Validators and block producers will be chosen among the most bonded staking candidates. Double-sign detection and other cutting logic provide security, stability, and chain finality.
