Can I bridge from ETH to Metis with Metamask?

Yes, it is now easier than ever to bridge between the two networks by using Synapse, a multi-chain bridging protocol. Not only do they allow you to connect your Metamask Wallet, they also support Coinbase Wallet, Wallet Connect, Binance Smart Chain Wallet and Terra Station. In this guide, we will show you how to connect to Synapse using a Metamask wallet.

How and Where to bridge from ETH to Metis

If you want to bridge between ETH and Metis you only have two tokens you can receive on Metis. You can send USDT, USDC and DAI from Ethereum and you will receive m.USDC. The other token you can receive is Synapse's native token SYN, which can be swapped between any network. In the steps below we will use USDC as an example.

Follow the below steps to begin swapping tokens between the two networks.

  1. Visit the Synapse protocol
  2. Select 'Connect Metamask Wallet'
  3. Click ''Ethereum' and 'Metis' under networks
  4. Enter the amount of USDC you want to bridge
  5. Press 'Approve USDC' and follow the prompts

ETH to METIS Bridging Fees

When bridging from the Ethereum network to METIS, it is much more affordable than bridging from METIS to ETH. This is due to the fact the cost to transact on Ethereum is considerably higher than Layer 2's like METIS. You can refer to the photo below for the slippage tolerances and fees involved when using each network.
