If you want to get FTM in your MetaMask wallet there are different ways to achieve that. You can buy FTM on a decentralized exchange (DEX). However, this needs several extra steps that make this whole process more complicated.
A better alternative is to buy FTM from Binance and send it to MetaMask. The fee to buy FTM on Binance is 0.1% which is the lowest fee within the industry.
If you do not have a Binance account already you can set up one here.
Send FTM from Binance to MetaMask
Step 1: Copy your FTM address from MetaMask
This can easily be done by clicking on the duplicate symbol next to the wallet address. Make sure you are connected to the Fantom Network on your MetaMask.
Step 2: Log in to your Binance account
Navigate to the login page of Binance and fill in your credentials. Then press 'Log In'.
Step 3: Navigate to your fiat and spot wallet
After you have logged in to your Binance account you will need to navigate to your fiat and spot wallet where your FTM wallet is located.
Click on 'Wallet' to expand it. Then click on 'Fiat and Spot'.
Step 4: Click on 'Withdraw' next to 'FTM'
After you have navigated to 'Fiat and Spot' you will see an overview of your fiat and spot balance. Under 'Crypto Balance' search for 'FTM'. Here you will be able to buy, deposit, withdraw, trade, earn, or convert your FTM. Click on 'Withdraw'.
Step 5: Send your FTM to MetaMask
Now you are on the FTM withdrawal page. Make sure that the selected coin is 'FTM'.
Then paste your FTM address from MetaMask (Step 1) in the 'Address' field.
Select the 'FTM Fantom' network from the 'Network' dropdown box.
Enter the amount of FTM that you want to send to your MetaMask wallet.
Lastly, click on 'Withdraw' to send your FTM from Binance to MetaMask.
