Bridging Assets BSC > POLY

STEP 1: Choose a compatible wallet

This is the compatible wallet list (may not be exhaustive):
  • Metamask (both Mobile and Desktop)
  • Arkane
  • Fortmatic
  • Portis
  • Torus
  • Wallet Connect (for compatible wallets, e.g. Math Wallet)
Trust Wallet is not compatible.
In this guide, weโ€™ll only treat Metamask. Metamask works for both Desktop and Mobile. You can download the Metamask app (Android or iOS) or the browser add-on (Chrome, Firefox, Brave, Edge) here: https://metamask.io/download.htmlโ€‹

STEP 1B: Add the Polygon network to Metamask

Network Name: Polygon Mainnet New RPC URL: https://rpc-mainnet.matic.network ChainID: 137 Symbol: MATIC Block Explorer URL: https://polygonscan.com/

STEP 2: Get some (free) MATIC for gas!

Here are some polygon faucets.
With those, youโ€™ll be able to get some free Matic to perform your first transactions.
Those Matic will be enough to do dozens of transactions, if not hundreds, but you should still buy some more Matic as soon as you get funds on the Polygon chain, just in case!

STEP 3: Bridge other funds over to Polygon

Whilst you can still use multichain for the supported assets, there are also other bridges available.
Official Bridges
The only official one is https://wallet.matic.network/bridge/ which only supports funds bridging from and to Ethereum Mainchain <==> Polygon chain.
If you want to use only official bridges, then your best chance is to bridge funds from BSC to ETH via https://www.binance.org/en/bridge and then from ETH to Polygon via the Matic Bridge.
Please mind that youโ€™ll need gas for both steps: BNB for the first step (BSC ๏ƒ  ETH) and ETH for the second (ETH ๏ƒ  POLY).
Unofficial Bridges
Nowadays there are many unofficial bridges available.
The ones weโ€™ll list below are battle-proven but always DYOR and mind you that theyโ€™re mostly BETA versions.
  1. 1.
    Evodefi - Supports: GenX, USDC, ETH
  2. 2.
    Xpollinate - Supports: DAI, USDC, USDT
