zeroBRIDGE is more than just a bridge, we are building a fully interoperable cross chain communication highway.
With our recent full integration on Arbitrum, Avalanche, and Polygon, We are the first platform that allows bridging from $BTC to native gas tokens in one go, on all of the aforementioned chains. Long gone are the days of needing faucets, air drops, or gas stations.
Moving your assets on to Polygon with zeroBRIDGE is the next step in a more seamless and secure experience.
Before zeroBRIDGE, the steps to convert $BTC to $MATIC kind of looked like this:
(The old way visualized)
The new way with zeroBRIDGE is as easy as 1–2–3:
Here’s a guide for using the zeroBRIDGE. In this walkthrough we will turn native $BTC to $MATIC using zeroBRIDGE exclusively.
To begin we select the Polygon network to get access to $MATIC and connect to a deposit wallet. In this example we are using an empty wallet address.
Next we select the currency we prefer to receive, in this case that is $MATIC.
When a keeper is ready to pick up the transfer we are asked to sign the transaction with our wallet and a deposit address for the $BTC we are sending is given to us.
<u>Note: It is important that you deposit the exact amount you signed for!</u>
Using either the QR code or copying the address into our $BTC wallet (making sure its correct!), we send the amount we input before we signed the transfer.
After reviewing the transfer and hitting send, the bridge takes care of everything else.
After a short wait, we now have the $MATIC in the wallet address connected to the Polygon network!
Thanks for reading and keep an eye out for more guides and info to come.
