Cannot Transfer Dogecoin to Binance BEP20 "Insufficient Smart Chain (BNB) to cover network Fee

Greeting from Australia,

I have setup an Account with Binance, and invested in Dogecoin.

I transferred the Dogecoin to my Trust Wallet.

When trying to transfer the money back to Binance for testing purpose’s

I am shown with this error:
“Insufficient Smart Chain (BNB) to cover network Fee”

My DogeCoin is using BEP20.

Your help is much appreciated, thank you.


Do you have BNB in your Trust Wallet to cover the fees?
If not, you will need to transfer BNB (BEP20) to your wallet. Then initiate the DOGE transfer


Hi Johul,
Yes I bought 0.125 bnb and transferred it over to my trust wallet and I tried the transaction again without success.

Ok i got it working

As i transfered the money to bnb and not smartchain, It wouldnt work. (Name looks similar)

So I sent the bnb money back to Binance.

From Binance I transfered it back to trust wallet, selecting “bep20” which is now called “bep…sc”
*(Make Note: Binance changed the name.)

Then it works :partying_face:


Sorry bro, i understand what i must do, but i don’t know how you buy Smart Chain?
With what you buy Smart Chain?

Hi @Seki1,

@dogecoin was able to get Smart Chain BNB by doing a cross-chain swap from BEP2 to BEP20. Here’s a guide: How to make a Crosschain Swap on Trust Wallet
