Why can’t I get more BUSD.e?

BUSD has launched natively on Avalanche! Just like USDC and USDT, which are natively supported on Avalanche, you can now receive Native Avalanche BUSD and bypass a synthetic, wrapped token. You can read more details here.

The Avalanche Bridge will no longer allow new BUSD.e onboards.

Note: BUSD.e offboards from Avalanche to Ethereum will still be enabled.

Where can I get BUSD?

Users can get Avalanche native BUSD from Binance or a DEX on the Avalanche network.

How do I send Avalanche native BUSD to an exchange?

BUSD exists on multiple blockchains (ex. Avalanche, Ethereum, Binance, etc…) but is not interchangeable. When sending Avalanche native BUSD, please make sure that the exchange or wallet you are sending to accepts BUSD on the C-chain. Otherwise your assets may not be received, and may not be recoverable. This is the same for when you send from an exchange to your Avalanche wallet. The native tokens network must match in order for it to properly be received so please double check before sending.

Note: Binance.US currently does not support Avalanche native BUSD (9/21/22)

How do I send BUSD from Binance to my Avalanche wallet?

Please ensure you are sending BUSD on the Avalanche C-chain to ensure it arrives on the Avalanche network.

What happens if I forget to swap my BUSD.e and it gets deprecated?
The Avalanche Bridge will allow users to offboard BUSD.e back to the Ethereum Network only. Once it is deprecated, users will not be able to onboard new BUSD.e, in other words, onboard their Native Ethereum BUSD back onto the Avalanche Network

How is BUSD.e different from BUSD?

BUSD.e is an Ethereum asset that was bridged using the Avalanche Bridge. All Ethereum assets that are bridged over receive a “.e” designation. BUSD is now native to Avalanche and does not require bridging nor can it be bridged using the Avalanche Bridge. These two tokens are not not interchangeable.
