PIP Extension with Solana Blockchain

What is Solana (SOL)?

Solana is a decentralized blockchain built to enable scalable, user-friendly apps for the world, and it is one of the fastest-growing ecosystems in crypto, with over 400 projects spanning Defi, NFTs, Web3, and more.

What happens if I send crypto to someone who doesn't use PIP?

If you send tips to anyone who has not signed up for PIP, the extension will act as an escrow service.

If the tip is not received within 24 hours from the time you sent, it will be automatically returned to your wallet and the transaction will be cancelled.

Blockchain transactions are irreversible by design. You cannot cancel the payment that is already made.

Switching Network on PIP Extension

Please check that your accounts should be connected to both Solana network and Binance Smart Chain network to switch.

How can I switch networks?

You can click the header icon and select the network you want to connect.

Why does the extension ask permission to access my wallet when I switch networks?

The PIP extension checks the wallet to connect and detects if you attempt to link a wallet that is different from the one you were previously using. This process is essential for security. If you haven't connected your wallet yet, you can do so now.

Sending Money

What tokens can I send with BNB Smart Chain?

PIP currently supports BUSD, BNB, PancakeSwap, and Dogecoin.

Should I change my network to send BUSD and BNB?

Yes. Switch the extension to BNB Smart Chain.

What is “Allow Spend Limit?”

Spend Limit is the maximum amount of tokenS that PIP can control in your wallet. For example, if you approve 10 BUSD, PIP can handle 10 BUSD in your wallet.
The extension only asks you to set the spend limit if
  • You send BUSD for the first time (Not for BNB)
  • You send more BUSD than the allowance you set.
You can customize the amount of allowance, but it will be automatically set to 10x of the amount of the tip you will send (i.e. if you want to send 10 BUSD → Default allowance: 100 BUSD) for making your tipping experience more simple.

What if the receiver is not a PIP user?

If you send money to anyone who has not signed up for PIP, the extension will act as an escrow service. If the receiver signs up for PIP, the money you sent will be automatically transferred to receiver's PIP account. If the money is not received within 24 hours from the time you sent, it will be automatically returned to your wallet and the transaction will be cancelled.
