Critical Alert: BNB Chain Notifies Metamask Users About New Layer-2 Platform

Metamask Wallet Bug Alert

Attention opBNB users! BNB Chain is aware of a bug in the Metamask Wallet that may affect your transactions on the opBNB Mainnet. Here’s what you need to know and how to avoid it.

  • The bug randomly occurs on at least 1 out of 20 attempts.
  • It prompts a scenario where Metamask Wallet recommends the “max base fee” or “max priority fee” to “0.”
  • This issue leads to a nonresponse from the opBNB Mainnet, resulting in a failed transaction.

Resolution and Precautionary Steps

The BNB Chain is actively working with Metamask to resolve this issue as soon as possible. In the meantime, opBNB users can take the following steps:

  1. Check transaction details carefully before signing and confirming.
  2. If a “0” appears in the “max base fee” or “max priority fee” fields, do not proceed with the transaction. Instead, cancel it and try again until a normal fee recommendation is seen.
