Why BSC Network is Needed in Metamask?
There are hundreds of tokens that are daily released in the crypto space. If a user downloads Metamask, by default, it gives an “Ethereum” network which means a user can load and deposit tokens in the “Ethereum” network.
One example of an Ethereum network token is “Shiba Inu”, Whereas BSC (Binance) network token is “Dogecoin”.
