Binance Smart Chain to Fantom Bridging Fees 

When bridging from one blockchain to another, there are generally two fees involved. There is the network transaction fee and the bridging (gas) fee. Usually the fees to bridge between these two chains come to around $15 - $30 USD, however, on Synapse it totals to around $5USD. 

To incentivise users to purchase their native token SYN, Synapse offers 0% slippage and a small 1 SYN transaction fee to bridge between networks. We recommend using SYN as the bridging token for the low fees and 0% slippage. You can easily purchase SYN on various DEXs such as SushiSwap or Trader Joe (on Avalanche).
