Ethereum is a decentralised, open-source blockchain network with smart contract functionality created in 2013 by a programmer, Vitalik Buterin. It is second only to Bitcoin in market capitalisation on the global cryptocurrency markets. Ethereum was conceived in 2013 by programmer Vitalik Buterin and has maintained its status of being the best blockchain in the world. 

Solana is a blockchain network designed to host decentralised, scalable applications like DeFi dApps (decentralised applications) and NFTs. It aims to scale beyond what is typically achieved by popular blockchains like Ethereum while keeping costs low. The network boasts a supposed 65,000 transactions a second with near-zero fees.

Where can I bridge crypto from Ethereum to Solana?

There is only one way to bridge your cryptocurrencies from any network to the Solana blockchain and that is through Portal Token Bridge, the native bridge of Solana. Solana is not an EVM-compatible network therefore users cannot store their funds on popular wallet providers like Metamask. To use this bridge you will need to have a Solana Web3 wallet like Solflare.

How to bridge cryptocurrencies from Ethereum to Solana

Bridging cryptocurrencies from Ethereum will require you to have two Web3 wallets - an Ethereum one like Metamask and a Solana one like Solflare. Before you follow these steps you will need to have both wallets installed. You can refer to the paragraph below for Solana-supported wallets. In this guide, we use Ethereum as the bridging token but there are other cryptocurrencies you can bridge. Follow the below steps to get started.

  1. Go to Portal Token Bridge and connect your Metamask Web3 Wallet or Wallet Connect
  2. Select ‘Ethereum’ & ‘Solana’ as your two networks

Solana Crypto Web3 Wallets

Before you bridge your tokens from Ethereum to Solana you will first need to add a Solana-supported wallet provider. These are the Web3 wallets currently supported on Portal Token Bridge - Solflare, Sollet, Torus, Phantom, Clover, Coin98, Slope, Solong & Exodus.
