Move assets between networks.
This is a miniguide of bridges.
What is Bridging?
Bridging means moving an asset from one network (e.g. Ethereum) to another (e.g. Polygon).
- Make sure to read and follow all instructions carefully as it is possible to lose assets if bridging is done incorrectly.
- Usually native network tokens (e.g. ETH, MATIC, AVAX) are required to do transactions on the network you bridge assets to.
- Sometimes the bridge will provide you with some native tokens on the other side (e.g. the Avalanche/Ethereum bridge).
- Make sure Metamask is configured with all desired chains (https://chainlist.org/ can help)
- If you need to wrap a native chain token (e.g. ETH) to a wrapped token (e.g. wETH) in order to bridge it, https://wrapeth.com/ can help. It works for chains other than Ethereum as well.
Stable coins only.
Binance/Binance Chain/Binance Smart Chain (BSC)
- Binance Chain Wallet allows onboard/offboard of fiat for US investors through Binance US. Binance US currently can withdraw BEP-2 tokens to Binance Chain. This wallet can bridge Binance Chain to Binance Smart Chain (BSC) BEP-20 which can then be bridged to other networks (Polygon, Fantom, xDAI, Avalanche, etc.)
- Trust Wallet can also bridge between Binance Chain (BEP-2) and Binance Smart Chain (BEP-20)
- Anyswap Bridge
- Celer cBridge
- Connext —crosschain liquidity network that enables noncustodial transfers between EVM-compatible chains and L2 systems
- DAI from Binance to AAVE on Polygon
- Move DAI to/from BSC/xDAI
Good luck and have fun!
