If you want to move your crypto from Cronos to Fantom, you'll need to use a process called "bridging." Bridging is the process of transferring tokens from one blockchain to another. In order to do this, you'll need to have a few things set up:

  • The RPC details for both the Cronos and Fantom networks.
  • A way to pay the bridging fees (usually in the form of the cryptocurrency you're trying to transfer)
  • A Metamask Web3 wallet installed on your browser

On Synapse users will be charged two fees, the bridging fee and the network transaction (gas) fee. To bridge from Cronos to Fantom, the fee will total around $10 AUD.
