Please help me find and use my ETH?


Where do I get the private Key string mentioned in the below example on the how-to import account support page?

  1. Click the circle icon at the top right corner of your MetaMask pop-up next to the network indicator.
  2. Select “ Import Account ” on the dropdown menu.!
  3. You will be directed to the Import page. Paste your private key and click “ Import” .
  4. You should be able to see the newly added account in the dropdown menu with an “Imported” tag next to the account.

I sent ETH on the wrong Network to MetaMask and I can’t access the ETH. I set up the Smartchain Network and can see the token has a value but i can’t use it…

Sure Im missing one easy step…hoping someone can please help??

Frustrated x

Why don’t you go look at rule number 8 in the blue text at the top of the page.

I have successfully sent ETH from Trezor and Binance to my Metamask wallet using both BEP20 and ERC20 channels. The tokens are present and visible in my Metamask app. However when I need ETH as gas fee to send my BUSD to Binance, I get a “You have 0 ETH in your account to pay for transaction fees”.


Thanks for the quick response. It’s much appreciated. Will attempt your suggestion soon. Regards.
