How to Bridge from BNB Chain to METIS with MetaMask
As mentioned above, the easiest way to bridge BUSD, USDC, USDT, ETH and other tokens from BNB Chain to METIS is with the Synapse cross-chain bridge. Their platform allows DeFi users to transfer value between BNB Chain and METIS with low fees and low slippage through their secure multi-chain DEX.
You can get started in 4 simple steps:
- Visit Synapse and connect your Metamask or Web3 Wallet.
- Select BNB Chain as your current chain, and METIS as your destination chain.
- Select the token you want to transfer (ETH, USDC, USDT or DAI) and the amount you want to transfer.
- Sign and complete the transaction (will take 2 minutes to hit your wallet).
BNB Chain to METIS Transfer Fees
Fortunately for users, both BNB Chain and METIS are low-cost and high-throughput networks, which means you will pay a maximum of $5 to transfer tokens between both networks. We found that Synapse is cheaper than alternative platforms like Stargate or AnySwap, which typically cost around $8-10 to move tokens cross-chain.
Is METIS Safe?
The METIS protocol is one of the largest layer-2 protocols by Total Value Locked, with over $200 million currently locked in DeFi applications on the network. The METIS ecosystem is also backed by leading DeFi funds like Framework Ventures, 1kx and Hypersphere Ventures. In addition, the project has auditing from Quantstamp, Certik and ChainSecurity.
