How to bridge FTM to AVAX

If you want to move your FTM tokens to the Avalanche network, you can do so by "bridging" them on a cross-chain DEX. The best bridge to swap FTM to AVAX is Synapse Protocol, who let you swap stablecoins from the Fantom network to the Avalanche C Chain.

To get started, follow these simple steps:

  1. Connect your Metamask wallet to Synapse Protocol.
  2. Select Fantom as your chain, and Avalanche as your destination.
  3. Select the stablecoin you want to send (USDC, USDT, DAI or BUSD).
  4. Confirm the transaction and it will complete in under 2 minutes.

FTM to AVAX Bridging Fees

The fees to bridge from Fantom Opera to Avalanche are relatively low because both networks are low-fee Proof of Stake networks. On-chain fees will probably total about $4 to move your tokens from FTM to AVAX.

You do incur some slippage when swapping stablecoins on Synapse, but it is only about 0.01% in total.


FTM to AVAX Conversion

If you want to swap FTM for AVAX tokens directly on the Fantom Opera chain, you cannot do this. You will need to swap FTM to USDC on Fantom, then bridge tokens across the Avalanche C Chain to get investment exposure to AVAX.
