Where is my ETH?

So, you accidentally sent Binance peg ETH to your Metamask wallet and now you wonder where is your crypto!

Fear not, there are a million tutorials online, yet there is not a single one that simplifies how to find your tokens, this is what I hope to accomplish here. There is beauty in simplicity.

First things first

Next you want to enter the following parameters:

  • Token Contract Address: 0x2170ed0880ac9a755fd29b2688956bd959f933f8
  • Token symbol: ETH
  • Decimals of Precision: 18

After click next and voilà you should now see your ETH! 

You can now send it back to a Binance smart chain wallet such as Trust wallet.

Or you can exchange it, remember ETH transactions require gas, so you need to have a way to cover the fees or use Binance bridge to do the swap:

I hope this helps!
