Given that you’ve already had your MetaMask wallet logged into with your personal credentials, you’ll be able to see the interface of https://bridge.orai.io/ with a series of conversion options.
For the time being, ORAI tokens are available in two types - ERC20 and BEP20. The ORAI native tokens are set to come in the coming days then ORAI tokens will coexist in every aforementioned shape and form within Oraichain’s ecosystem.
As the origin of BEP20 ORAI tokens traces back to the Binance Smart Chain network (also known as BSC) and MetaMask doesn’t come bundled with Binance Smart Chain by default at the moment, you need to configure your wallet a bit in advance.
Follow some simple steps below to install the Binance Smart Chain network in your MetaMask wallet:
Step 1: Click on the MetaMask icon and select Settings from the dropdown menu.
(Otherwise, you can open the full-screen view of Settings: Three-dot menu > Expand view)

**Network Name**: Binance Smart Chain**New RPC URL**: https://bsc-dataseed.binance.org/**ChainID**: 56**Symbol**: BNB**Block Explorer URL**: https://bscscan.com
Click Save and your wallet will get integrated into the Binance Smart Chain’s mainnet. You’re good to go now!
First things first, keep in mind that you’ve already deposited a certain amount of ORAI tokens, either ERC20 or BEP20, to the wallet address that is currently being in use.
Whether your ORAI tokens are stored in the form of ERC20 or BEP20, you can see them when choosing Main Ethereum Network or Binance Smart Chain respectively.
If this is the first time you set up the BSC network, you need to add ORAI BEP20’s address manually by using Add Token > Custom Token.
The official addresses of ORAI ERC20 and ORAI BEP20 are as follows:
**ORAI ERC20: 0x4c11249814f11b9346808179cf06e71ac328c1b5****ORAI BEP20: 0xa325ad6d9c92b55a3fc5ad7e412b1518f96441c0**
