This page explains how to use your Binance Wallet to bridge BNB from the BNB Smart Chain to the BNB Beacon Chain.
The staking module for BNB Smart Chain (in the BNB Chain ecosystem) lives on the BNB Beacon Chain.
If you hold BNB on the BNB Smart Chain (and your address starts with
0x), you need to bridge your BNB to the BNB Beacon Chain (where addresses start with
bnb) before you can stake.
Open your Binance Wallet and click Send.
Click into the text input box right under Address then click My Accounts and select your BNB Beacon Chain Network address. You should see a message says that this transaction is a "Cross Chain Transfer to BNB Beacon Chain."
Input the amount you want to transfer (don’t forget to leave at least 0.05BNB in your wallet for transaction fees!), click Send and confirm the transaction.
Navigate to Stake with Binance Wallet to finish delegating BNB to the Coinbase Cloud validator!
