Get tokens

After setting up the wallet, we will need to reserve some tokens for trading and paying gas fee (What is Gas?) Just like we use dollars in the US, if you want to trade on BSC, we need to have some BNB to pay the gas fee. The easiest way to get BNB is buying it with your credit card in your Binance Wallet:

Find the <Buy> button on the home page, select BNB and enter the amount you want to buy. Follow the payment instructions to pay successfully. After that, you will get your BNB in your Binance wallet automatically.

Of course, if you have a Binance exchange account, you can also choose to withdraw tokens from it to your Binance Wallet. Bear in mind you need an account to do so.
