How to Bridge from BSC to FTM

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 Fantom Opera to Your MetaMask

There are two ways to do this, manually or automatically with Feeder Finance.
Manually
  1. 1.
    Click the 'Network' icon at the top of your MetaMask network selection
Select 'Custom RPC'

Automatically with Feeder Finance

Step 3: Prepare FTM Gas

Just like on BSC, you'll need to have some gas to be able to execute transactions of the FTM network, whereas on BSC it's the $BNB; on Fantom, it's $FTM.
You'll need to have FTM in your Metamask wallet on the FTM network. Again, there are two ways to do this, by withdrawing from a centralized exchange (e.g Binance) or by claiming free FTM from the Feeder Finance platform.

1. Withdraw FTM from Binance

  1. 1.
    Use your Binance or any other CEX account to buy FTM in the spot market (Tip: make sure the exchange supports withdrawals to the Fantom blockchain)
  2. 2.
    Withdraw FTM straight to your wallet on FTM, or if you're using the Binance continue with 3.
  3. 3.
    Withdraw your FTM first to your wallet on the Ethereum network (ERC20)

2. Claim FTM if You're a Feeder Finance Product User

Note: If you're an investor in the Feeder Finance products and have more than $1,000 deposited, you'll be able to claim 0.5 FTM.

Step 4: Use the AnySwap Bridge

Now that your FTM gas is ready, time to bridge your tokens over from BSC to FTM.
  1. 1.
    Make sure you are connected to the BSC network with your MetaMask wallet
  2. 2.
    Head over to AnySwap Bridge​
  3. 3.
    Select 'BSC mainnet' at the 'From' section's right drop-down
