In our case the BNB coin for the BNB Smart Chain network has also been added, as it is needed to pay the commission on operations involving transferring USDT to the BNB Smart Chain network.

By following the same principle, you can add any coins and tokens that are supported by Tangem Wallet.


Once you have added all the tokens you need to the main screen of the Tangem app, you can receive cryptocurrency to your Tangem wallet. Read about it in our next article.
