A cryptocurrency is a digital or virtual asset that is secured by cryptography, which makes it nearly impossible to counterfeit or double-spend. Many cryptocurrencies are decentralized networks based on the blockchain technology.

This guide will help you to set up TockenPocket, MetaMask desktop, MetaMask smartphone version for iOS, Trust Wallet, or Binance Chain Wallet desktop correctly to interact with the FORSAGE BUSD platform. 


Please pay special attention!

To make any transactions with BUSD stablecoin in Binance Smart Chain, you need to have a BNB coin on your balance to pay fees. The fees will be automatically deducted from your BNB balance. If your wallet does not have BNB cryptocurrency, the Binance Smart Chain blockchain will not be able to perform any of your BUSD transactions.


The public key, aka your wallet address, is a code consisting of a set of letters and symbols. You will need the address to receive funds in your wallet. This address will be used for both BUSD and BNB. You don't need to create additional addresses for each coin.
