Chapter 1.1: Bridging to Avalanche
The Avalanche Network is home to Swimmer Network and Crabada. The Avalanche Network’s currency is $AVAX.
To continue your journey onto Swimmer Network, you will first have to bridge your assets onto the Avalanche C-Chain.
You will first need to add Avalanche Network to Metamask!
There are several ways that you can easily bridge to Avalanche from various chains or platforms:
Bridging with Avalanche Bridge
*Users that send more than US$75.00 worth of any token using Avalanche Bridge will receive a small AVAX airdrop so that you can seamlessly get started with your first transaction.
Supported Networks: Ethereum
Bridging with Celer cBridge
Supported Networks: Ethereum, BSC, Polygon, Fantom, Arbitrum, Optimism and many more.
Note: You will need AVAX in your crypto wallet for your first transaction on Avalanche Network.
You may also choose to purchase AVAX through some CEXs and easily bridge your funds over to the Avalanche Network.
Here is a list of CEXs that allow bridging AVAX directly onto the Avalanche C-Chain.
