(xPollinate) Bridge assets from BSC > Fantom

Guide to bridge assets from Binance Smart Chain (BSC Network) to Fantom using the xPollinate bridge

For this guide we will make use of the xPollinate bridge (https://www.xpollinate.io/) to bridge assets from BSC → Fantom but all chains are applicable to this current HOW TO. At this time it is only possible to swap $ETH, $DAI, $USDT and $USDC at the xPollinate bridge, but fees are relatively low at Fantom (FTM) so a swap can be done easily afterwards. But do make sure you have one of these assets ready for the bridging.

1) Head over to xpollinate.io and connect your Metamask wallet to Binance Smart Chain (BSC), since this is the network we are bridging from and select Binance Smart Chain on the top side of the <> and Fantom network at the bottom side - after that we select the USDC asset since that is the one we are using for this HOW-TO:

2) Open the "Available Liquidity" dropdown to check the liqudity on the destination chain, as said for this HOW-TO we will check $USDC liquidity on Fantom (FTM) Chain:

3) If there is enough liquidity at the destination chain for the swap, key in the amount of tokens you want to bridge to the Fantom (FTM) Chain and click "Swap":
