This article will walk you through how to transfer your BNB tokens from KuCoin to MetaMask. You’ll need to have a MetaMask wallet and a Kucoin account with BNB tokens in that account. If you don’t have BNB tokens on your Kucoin account, you can fund the account and trade it for a BNB token.
The usual process would take less than 10 minutes, but there are instances when the network is congested, so it would take a little more time than expected, like 30 minutes to an hour maximum.
After reading this article, you will be able to familiarize yourself with how to Transfer BNB from KuCoin to MetaMask.
How much does it cost to withdraw from KuCoin BNB?
Kucoin has different withdrawal fees for various tokens. For instance, the withdrawal fee for BNB is 0.01 BNB. For ETH the withdrawal fee is 0.005 ETH per transaction. The withdrawal fee also depends on which network you are transferring to. For example, the fee is much lesser for withdrawing ETH to the TRX network. It would be around 0.0005 ETH per withdrawal. So it’s ten times much cheaper compared to the Ethereum Network.
What is the minimum withdrawal amount?
The minimum withdrawal amount for BNB from Kucoin is 0.01 BNB. So if you’re planning to withdraw any amount lower than that, then it’s not possible. But you can use Decentralized Exchanges (DEXes) such as Uniswap, Pancakeswap, Sushiswap, and many others.
There are two ways for us to do this. The first is to do it from the Kucoin website to the Metamask wallet on your Browser. The second is to do it on your Kucoin mobile app to your Metamask mobile wallet.
