ChainPort’s team is proud to announce that is expanding its support to allow EVM to Ethereum porting. By enabling EVM to Ethereum support, ChainPort is vastly increasing its interoperability while adhering to the strictest security features in the crypto industry.
By enabling EVM to ETH porting, users can now port native tokens from ChainPort’s nine supported EVMs to Ethereum. ChainPort’s supported EVM chains include the following:
- BNB Chain
- Polygon (Matic)
- Moon River
Tokens native to the EVM chains above can now be ported easily to Ethereum’s ecosystem. ChainPort will add support for additional EVM and non-EVM chains in the future.
Ethereum is the second most popular cryptocurrency, with a market cap of $146 billion. Recently Ethereum managed to transition from a proof-of-work consensus mechanism to proof-of-stake. The transition was dubbed “the merge,” and now the network consumes much less electricity and rewards stakers for validating transactions.
Many leading decentralized exchanges or DEXs are based on Ethereum, including Uniswap v3 and Curve. Both Uniswap and Curve have impressive daily volumes that rival established centralized exchanges.
Bridging tokens to Ethereum can be especially useful for Web3 projects looking to increase their exposure and trading volume.
Due to the network’s popularity, gas fees on Ethereum tend to be higher than on other blockchains. As such, fees for porting to Ethereum will cost ~$6, which is payable in a token’s original network coin (e.g., BNB, MATIC.) This fee covers the minting and receive Tx on Ethereum’s chain and keeps the porting operation short and simple, with only one signature. Porting fees to Ethereum depends on the Ethereum network’s gas fees and may change.
By developing this porting direction, ChainPort will see more porting activity and a higher TVL. Most importantly, by establishing EVM to Ethereum support, the dream of uniting blockchains with an ultra-secure bridge becomes a reality.
ChainPort is a next-gen cross-chain bridge that provides custodian-level security with full interoperability. ChainPort introduces an unprecedented level of security architecture, porting tokens safely across blockchains with just a click.
Security is always paramount for ChainPort, and 95% of the funds are stored in cold storage wallets provided by leading industry security experts: FireBlocks MPC and Gnosis-safe multi-sig.
ChainPort is a permissionless bridge already porting more than 190 tokens between blockchains, with additional projects joining daily. Porting is done in just minutes through a friendly and straightforward UI without the need for any technical integration.
Since its launch in 2021, Chainport has managed 45,000 ports and $600,000,000 in volume. Learn more by visiting ChainPort.io or reading our documentation.
