Ethereum to Moonbeam Bridge: How to Bridge ETH/ERC20 tokens to Moonbeam
If you’re looking to bridge over ERC-tokens (e.g. ETH, USDC, USDT, WBTC, DAI) from Ethereum network to Moonbeam, this guide will take you through the process.
ERC-tokens are tokens that reside on the Ethereum blockchain. These include ETH, USDC, USDT, WBTC and DAI. ERC is a standard that Ethereum-based tokens adhere to.
Step 1: Possess ERC-Tokens
Ensure that you have ERC-tokens in your wallet. For example, if you want to bridge over WBTC, here’s a list of venues to get WBTC.
Step 2: Go to StellaSwap’s Bridge and Connect Wallet
Visit the StellaSwap’s Bridge to start the bridging process. Connect your wallet by clicking on the “Connect Wallet” pink button on the top right.
Step 3: Select WBTC to send from Avalanche to Moonbeam
To: Moonbeam and choose
Token to Bridge: WBTC. Enter the WBTC token amount and click “Bridge WBTC” button. Approve the transfer your wallet and you’re all done!
Step 4: Wait for Bridge TXN to Complete in History
After confirming the transaction, you can wait for the bridge to complete your transaction. It could take anywhere from 5 mins to 15 mins. Once completed, the Status should be Completed.
Step 5: [Optional] Import WBTC Token on Wallet Manually to View Balance
For new networks, you would usually need to import tokens to view the balance on Metamask. When you’ve bridged your WBTC for the first time, don’t worry if you don’t see your WBTC balance on Metamask because you need to manually import the token for it to be viewable. You can do so by clicking on Import Token on your metamask:
Thereafter, enter the contract address for WBTC at the Token Contract Address field which is 0x922D641a426DcFFaeF11680e5358F34d97d112E1. The rest of the information will be automatically populated. Once done, click on the Add Custom Token.
