I purchased ada on binance us and for some dumb reason, I used the BEP2 network vs the Cardano network to send my ada on binance us to Daedalus/ledger. It all shows up in Daedalus as ADA but after reading some threads did I just convert this to a wrapped token vs a native token? I'm still pretty new to this and may be misunderstanding this, but I want to ensure the ada I have in my Daedalus wallet is the native token and not wrapped or pegged, and if it is what do I need to do to get back the native token? Thank you in advance.

As long as you use the Daedalus mainnet client and see your balance, you are using ADA.

To be absolutely sure you can copy your public address and look it up on the cardano explorer: https://explorer.cardano.org/en/address?address=YOUR_ADDRESS

Example: https://explorer.cardano.org/en/address?address=addr1qy273uqgsnv2v9hrllgp32g4gkxke85d8nsk4nup6t354kyluklkqpppvma530cs4se0gd46m5njrwtqraknat2ef9rq4v2my2

There you'll be able to see your ADA balance
