Transfer "success" but lost coins?

Hi,
I transferred BTC from Binance to my Metamask wallet. It worked fine and the amount was correct in the wallet.

The BTC was in the Metamask Binance Smart Chain Mainnet, now as BTCB.

I copied/pasted the given "unique bitcoin address to deposit’ Yeildnode address into Metamask and sent it.

There was no error in any typing as it was all copy and paste.

The receipt shows success… but Yeildnode does not have the coin.

The Yeildnode address I pasted into Metamask and the address it was actually sent to on the receipt when checked on BscScan are different.

BscScan says the address says it has gone to - Binance-Peg BTCB Token

I have all the necessary info, but I’m not too sure what I can post or not for security. I’m just not too sure what it all means myself!

So I ask -
-What have I done wrong?
-Where is my coinage?
-How do I correct it?

I’d really appreciate any help offered.

cheers!

Hey @boldlygo, welcome to the MetaMask community! :fox_face:

Unfortunately, you cannot send BTC directly from Binance to your MetaMask wallet. BTC is on the Bitcoin network which is not compatible with MetaMask.

Hi, thanks for the info.

I bought Btc in Binance and sent it to my Metamask and it became BtcB.

I then sent the BtcB to Yieldnode ‘unique’ address, but it didn’t arrive. It has gone to a Binance address I can see on BCSScan.

Are btc and BtcB not interchangeable?

It still leaves me with the problem of where is the money? What/Where is the address BscScan says it in?
