How do I retrieve my ERC-20, when I have sent it to a Binance C-chain address? Is my money lost in the Blockchain’s fine funds? How do I do this? This kind of thing happens very often and many people are helpless in the face of their mistake. You have looked for help everywhere, but without having had a solution or being told that it was totally lost. Never mind! I am going to give you a solution that works to get your money back.
We assume that you want to send your cryptomonnaie on a personal wallet. In my example we assume that you have your private key on an Ethereum wallet, I take the Atomic Wallet as an example.
Difference between ERC-20 and BEP-2
Before we start, we will quickly distinguish between the two types of address.
ERC-20 = Token on the Ethereum channel starts with 0x
BEP-2 = Token on the Binance channel starts with bnb
We are now going to install the metamask wallet available at this address: https://metamask.io/.
After installing Metamask it is now necessary to import the private key.
Finding the private key
On Atomic Wallet just go to :
Setting > Private key
Import your private key on Metamask
Now you will have to import your private key on metamask, follow the image guide :
Go to Binance’s C-chain
Now we will connect Metamask to the C-chain of Binance.
We are going to use the addresses of the mainnet :
- RPC URLs : https://bsc-dataseed.binance.org/
- ChainID: 56
- Symbol: BNB
- Block Explorer: https://bscscan.com
Add your token contract
Go to https://bscscan.com, enter the name of your token in the search bar.
In my example, we are going to leave on a chainlink but you will have to do exactly the same thing for your token.
On Metamask go in add a token.
