Ok so new to metamask, first thing was I wanted to test metamask. So I decided to move USDT from binance. Intended to move 50 dollars.
I read up all the bsc stuff. Set up bsc manner and sent the 5o dollars, binanxes fees and got eventually, 48.20 of BEP20 USDT (but really now BUSD)
Ok I find you can’t really use this as usdt. So the whole shadowing bsc chain thing does seem to have much practical application to me, so the 48 dollars would serve me better on binance, or 48.20 minus I assume a similar binance fee.
But no. On trying to refund I get insufficient fees and requests to set gas fees. (No gas on bsc???)
Undeterred by this little farce I decide to progress with my main aim, to get matic over (with an intention of using matic mainnet to then purchase moonwolf.io )
I then transfer 194 matic (paying over 20 dollars in gas) to the ethereum main net. And figure can swap there.
I then discover that to use plasma bridge to move matic from ethereum net to matic main net costs nearly all the matic. So it’s a no-go, Time to move that matic back to binance so that I can trade that and just by matic mainnet with ramp. Hi e up with the meta mask farce
Except still I have insufficient funds.
So what metamask has done is effectively suck up 126 dollars of my tokens and trap them in limbo. Which is a pretty poor experience.
