How to bridge assets from BSC to OEC on MetaMask

2021.08.11 OKEx

A guide to bridge assets from Binance Smart Chain to OKExChain on MetaMask

OKEx users can now easily bridge their assets from Binance Smart Chain to OKExChain using MetaMask. This allows them to move and use supported BSC assets in the OEC ecosystem.

In this tutorial, we will go over the steps for bridging assets from BSC to OEC and will use the example of the newly listed BABYDOGE token.

Before moving ahead, please note the following regarding BABYDOGE deposits on OEC:

  1. The minimum deposit amount is 3,300,000,000 BABYDOGE and the maximum deposit amount is 3,000,000,000,000,000 BABYDOGE.
  2. The estimated time of deposit arrival is 10–30 minutes.
  3. Deposit amounts larger than 600,000,000,000,000 BABYDOGE could take up to 12 hours.
  4. Only deposits from the BSC address matching your OEC wallet will be credited. 

Step 1: Open MetaMask and select "Custom RPC"

In order to change the network on your MetaMask wallet from Binance Smart Chain to OKExChain, you will need to first select the "Custom RPC" option.

Step 2: Enter OKExChain information

After selecting "Custom RPC" from the list of networks, enter the following information in the form that shows up on your screen.

  • Network Name: OKExChain Mainnet
  • New RPC URL: https://exchainrpc.okex.org
  • Chain ID: 66
  • Currency Symbol: OKT
  • Block Explorer URL: https://www.oklink.com/okexchain/

Select Save to finish.

Step 3: Connect to the OKExChain Mainnet

After saving the information above, your MetaMask should automatically connect to OEC. However, if that is not the case, you can select "OKExChain Mainnet" from the list of networks on MetaMask to connect.

Step 4: Reserve some OKT for gas fees

You should transfer a small amount of OKT to your OKExChain address for any gas fees before attempting to bridge assets. If you don't have any OKT, you can buy them on OKEx and send them to your OEC address.

Step 5: Bridge assets using AnySwap

In order to bridge your assets, visit AnySwap with the OKExChain Mainnet selected by clicking here. On AnySwap, you can click on Connect to a Wallet and sync your MetaMask extension. 

Once that is done, you can enter your desired deposit amount in the "Deposit" field and scroll down to click on Agree and then CrossChain Deposit.

After this, your BABYDOGE deposit should arrive in 10–30 minutes, as specified at the start of this tutorial. 

Please note that unlike transactions on BSC, BABYDOGE transferred cross-chain to OKExChain will not be subject to the project's 10% transaction fee.
