How to Bridge from BSC to AVAX

Step 1: Use an EVM-Compatible Wallet to Connect to FTM

The Gold Standard crypto EVM-Compatible Wallet is MetaMask; if you're already using it to navigate through BSC, things will be easy for you.
If you're using TrustWallet, we recommend you also set-up a MetaMask wallet. MetaMask provides the most seamless multichain experience. TrustWallet's seed phrase can be imported into MetaMask, so you can run both wallets simultaneously. Check-out the "How to Switch from Trust Wallet to MetaMask" tutorial below.

Step 2: Add Avalanche to Your MetaMask

There are two ways to do this, manually or automatically with Feeder Finance.

    Click the 'Network' icon at the top of your MetaMask network selection

Step 3: Prepare AVAX Gas & Bridging Tokens

Just like on BSC, you'll need to have some gas to be able to execute transactions of the AVAX network, whereas on BSC it's the $BNB; on Avalanche, it's $AVAX.
You'll need to have AVAX in your Metamask wallet on the AVAX network. You could either get it from an Exchange, or by bridging.

1. Withdraw AVAX from Binance

  1. 1.
    Use your Binance or any other CEX account to buy AVAX in the spot market (Tip: make sure the exchange supports withdrawals to the AVAX blockchain)
