Core mobile now offers the ability to bridge BTC and certain Ethereum assets to the Avalanche® network.

1. Select the “+” icon at the bottom of the screen.

2. Select the Bridge Icon at the bottom of the screen.

3. Set the desired networks in the “From” and “To” dropdown menus.

4. Select the asset and quantity you are bridging from the dropdown menu.

5. Click “Transfer” when you are ready to bridge over the asset.

Please note that when bridging over $75+ worth of assets from Bitcoin or Ethereum’s network, you will receive an airdrop of AVAX for gas fees to cover the first Avalanche transaction.

6. Transaction Status tracks the transaction’s progress.

7. Once successful, Core will send a notification.

Note:

  • Ethereum bridged assets will now appear with a ".e" designation representing the bridged asset.

  • Bitcoin bridged assets will now appear with a ".b" designation representing the bridged asset.

  • The Core interface will need time to update your newly bridged assets.
