Aptos is the new hit in the crypto world and sending coins from other blockchains (like Ethereum, BNB chain, Polygon, Arbitrgum, Optimism, Avalanche) over to Aptos blockchain is the first thing you must do in order to interact with it and its projects.
Here are a couple of ways you can send coins to Aptos blockchain in both decentralized and centralized way.
Best Aptos Bridges To Send Coins From Other Blockchains to Aptos
The Aptos Bridge
The Aptos Bridge is now up and running. You can find it at www.theaptosbridge.com. With just a few clicks, you can be in the Aptos ecosystem, and the bridge will airdrop you APT once you get there.
Aptos claims to be the most secure and scalable L1 blockchain, and Liquidswap is the first AMM built on it. The Aptos mainnet is the platform that hosts the DEX. The team behind it created the bridge so users can swap coins from other blockchains to Aptos.
What is LayerZero?
Interoperability is one of the most important problems facing blockchain technology right now, and LayerZero wants to help solve it. It is a protocol that makes it easier for different blockchain networks to connect with each other. It does this by using a new method.
LayerZero’s method uses on-chain light nodes in a much more cost-effective way. It uses decentralized oracles to stream block headers when they are needed. This way, it doesn’t have to keep track of all block headers in order.
How to send coins from ETH to Aptos?
For all those who never used a bridge on the BC bellow is an example of a path to take for ETH > Aptos
1. Swap eth to usdc in metamask
2. Download Pontem Wallet (chrome store)
3. Go to this page & bridge usdc from metamask to usdc on pontem: https://bridge.liquidswap.com
4. Wait a minute then redeem your bridged tokens on the same page
5. Same page swap the usdc from Pontem to aptos
Centralized exchanges that list APT tokens:
The largest crypto exchange already listed APT tokens so you can trade other coins or fiat currencies for APT on Binance and then withdraw them to your Aptos wallet so you can use it on their blockchain.
Similarly to Binance, FTX was quick to list APT and you can use this platform to purchase or trade coisn for APT and send them over to your own Aptos wallet to interact with the new layer 1 blockchain.
