Thank you for supporting us patiently over the past few months, our team has been working hard and today we are elated to announce that the OpenSwap bridge is finally ready to be deployed on testnet. This means that you and your friends can try out the bridge on testnet and evaluate its performance!
OpenSwap Testnet Bridge: https://testnet.openswap.xyz/#/
In the coming month, we would be working on including additional features to the OpenSwap Bridge every week. Right now, the bridge already supports crosschain swap of stablecoin to any token, something that is pretty rare in the bridging scene. We urge all our loyal trolls, friends, and followers to try out OpenSwap Bridge on testnet and tell us your evaluation on the feedback form.
For trolls of you who are not familiar with playing on testnet, here is a quick guide on how to use the OpenSwap Bridge on testnet:
1. Add the testnet networks on Metamask
Simply click the network button on the top bar and select a network, a prompt will pop up on Metamask. Click approve and the network will be added to your Metamask automatically. Change the network to BSC testnet so that no real funds are used.
Right now, our bridge supports Kovan (ETH testnet), BSC Testnet and Avalanche FUJI C-Chain (AVAX testnet). Other wallets might not be supported as of this moment so Metamask is recommended.
2. Get testnet tokens for free
Simply go to these sites and get your testnet tokens from the faucet. We recommend getting some testnet BNB to get started. You will also need these tokens for gas fee later on.
3. Swap for USDT on OSWAP
Since the OpenSwap Bridge currently revolves around stable coins, we suggest you swap for some stable coins with your native token; BNB, ETH, AVAX.
4. Get Bridging!
You may create an order by selecting the source chain, destination chain, input amount, and the desired token on the destination chain.
After clicking “Create Order”, you may review the order details, such as the expected amount out on the destination chain and the transaction fee.
You may click the view record to check the order status. Expect the transaction to be done within 30 seconds.
This is it for this announcement, we are looking forward to hearing out what you trolls think about the OpenSwap Bridge after playing around with it.
OpenSwap is the world’s first DEX providing on-chain swaps at zero slippage with hybrid smart routing, and a single asset crosschain bridge. As the DeFi universe continues to expand, liquidity becomes increasingly scattered across multiple chains and the situation is poised to get worse as new chains emerge with individual DEXs on each chain. The OpenSwap team has been working for the past several months on building up a vision of a greater OpenSwap ecosystem that will become every crypto project’s BFF through a set of key offerings that will empower teams to establish funding and sustained token health, allowing teams to focus on what they do best — BUIDL.
