Where can I bridge to DogeChain?

At the time of writing, there are three secure and reliable platforms that allow bridging to and from DogeChain. The three platforms are DogeChain Bridge (the native bridge of DogeChain), Synapse protocol, and Multichain bridge. DogeChain bridge is by far the worst platform of the three as it only supports the bridging of one token, DogeCoin.

We suggest using Synapse over Multichain bridge as it offers significantly more bridging tokens and has the lowest bridging fees in the world. Furthermore, it has the largest bridging volume out of any bridging protocol globally, with over $1B bridged every month since its launch in late 2021.

How to bridge crypto to DogeChain

The easiest way to bridge tokens to DogeChain is through the Synapse protocol. On Synapse users can bridge crypto to DogeChain from Ethereum, Arbitrum, Avalanche, Optimism, Polygon, Aurora, Boba Network, Cronos, Fantom, Harmony, Klaytn, Metis, Moonbeam & Moonriver. In this method, we show users how to bridge crypto from Ethereum to DogeChain.

Follow the below steps to bridge cryptocurrencies from Ethereum to DogeChain:

  1. Go to the Synapse Protocol and connect your MetaMask or Web3 Wallet.
  2. Select Ethereum and DogeChain as your two networks.
  3. Choose the token you want to bridge (we use ETH as an example).
  4. Enter the amount of ETH you want to bridge and click 'Approve ETH'.
  5. Confirm the transactions on MetaMask and your funds will arrive within minutes.

What is DogeChain

DogeChain is referring to itself as an L2 (Layer 2) scaling solution for DOGE and is built on the leading Ethereum side-chain, Polygon Edge. Technically, DogeChain cannot be classified as a Layer 2 network as it is not built on top of DogeCoin. It is a completely separate network based on the Polygon network and is in no way associated with DogeCoin.

The DogeCoin Foundation developers and creators are not involved in the DogeChain project whatsoever. The DogeChain network also has a separate native utility token that is not DOGE, called DogeChain Token (DC). Dogechain is a PoS (proof of stake) blockchain network that runs on Polygon, making it an EVM-compatible chain.

Is it expensive to bridge funds to DogeChain?

This depends entirely on what bridging protocol you use to transfer your funds to the DogeChain network. If you use the Synapse network, it is extremely affordable as Synapse offers positive slippage on multiple tokens plus low bridging fees. On Synapse the bridging fees are around $2 - $5 AUD to bridge to DogeChain.

Bottom Line

DogeChain is an innovative and powerful scaling solution for DOGE that allows users to access a range of DeFi services and applications. By using Synapse, users can bridge their tokens from many blockchains to DogeChain with ease and low costs. With the growing popularity of DogeCoin among investors, we expect more platforms to develop bridges allowing users to transfer funds while taking advantage of lower transaction fees.
