3. Now go to the Binance US website, sign in, and select Withdraw

Within the “Coin: dropdown select BNB (My balance says 0 but yours should not). Next, make sure that the “Select Withdrawal Network” is set to “BEP2”. This is the network for the Binance Chain Network. Now open up the Binance Wallet Extension and make sure you are on the “Binance Chain Network”. The network you are on will be located in the top middle of the extension. **MAKE SURE YOU ARE NOT USING THE TESTNET NETWORK** You will need your wallet address from the Binance Chain Network to withdraw your BNB from Binance. Copy your address from the Binance Chain Network. Your address will begin with “bnb”. If it does not start with “bnb” make sure you are on the Binance Chain Network. Copy and paste this address into “Recipient’s BNB Address” on Binance US. Be sure to double-check that the address matches the one from your wallet. Finally, enter the amount you wish to transfer from Binance US to your wallet and click submit. After submitting, the transfer from Binance US to your Binance Chain Network could take several minutes.

4. Transfer BNB from Binance Chain Network to Binance Smart Chain Network

The BNB should now be on the Binance Chain Network and located within your wallet. Now switch to the Binance Smart Chain Network and copy your address. Your address on the Binance Smart Chain Network begins with “0x”. Next switch back to the Binance Chain Network where your BNB is currently located. Click on send and paste your Binance Smart Chain Network address, the one that begins with “0x”. A notification will appear under the address box that states, “Note: Cross Chain Transfer to Binance Smart Chain”. Select the amount of BNB you wish to transfer and then press send.
