How to Bridge to METIS
As mentioned above, the best way to bridge your assets from Ethereum to METIS is with the Synapse Protocol. In order to use their service, you will need to have a Web3-enabled browser or wallet. If you do not have one, we recommend using MetaMask. It is a secure and easy-to-use software wallet that can be used on Chrome, Firefox and Brave browsers.
Once you have MetaMask installed, you can follow this simple guide to bridge to METIS.
- Connect your MetaMask wallet to the Synapse App.
- Select METIS as your destination chain and choose your origin chain (the network that has the tokens you want to transfer from).
- Select the token you want to bridge to METIS and the amount.
- Review the transaction and select 'Bridge your funds' to transfer tokens to METIS.
METIS Bridging Fees
The fees to bridge to METIS will depend on the network you are transferring assets from. Ethereum mainnet is typically the most expensive, with fees costing users around $20 depending on gas prices at the time. If you are bridging from another Layer 2 or alt-Layer 1 like Avalanche or BNB Chain, the fees should be between $5-10 to transfer tokens to METIS.
