Cronos launches bridge to Canto (CANTO token)
Announcing the launch of an IBC channel between Cronos and Canto, to facilitate crosschain CANTO token transfers
An IBC channel has been established between Cronos and Canto, to facilitate cross-chain CANTO token transfers in a decentralized manner.
As an EVM-compatible chain built with the Cosmos SDK, Cronos is uniquely positioned to connect Ethereum and the Cosmos ecosystems. Cronos has enabled Inter-blockchain Communication Protocol from Day One, and has enabled 5 IBC bridges:
Cronos POS <> Cronos (CRO token)
Cosmos Hub <> Cronos (ATOM token)
Akash <> Cronos (AKT token)
IRIS <> Cronos (IRIS token)
CANTO <> Cronos (CANTO token)
How do you bridge CANTO from Canto to Cronos on the Cronos bridge web app at https://cronos.org/bridge :
You need to have self-custody crypto wallets on the sending chain (Canto) and on the destination chain (Cronos).
On the Canto side, the bridge web app supports Keplr (link to Chrome browser extension).
If you have not setup Keplr wallet before, you need to follow these steps:
Click the account icon
Click “Add account”
Click “Import existing account”
Enter seed phrase and create password
You may follow this Beginner's Guide on setting up the wallet
On the Cronos side, you can receive your CANTO on any address that you control. We recommend the Crypto.com Defi Wallet (link) together with its browser extension (link) or alternatively you can use the Rabby wallet (link) or MetaMask wallet (link). Cronos addresses start with “0x”.
If you are using MetaMask and haven’t interacted with Cronos before, please follow the step-by-step guide on how to configure MetaMask for the Cronos chain.
But remember ! Never enter the deposit address of a centralized exchange as the destination address of the transfer, otherwise your funds will be lost. Only enter addresses that you control via a self-custodial wallet.
How to bridge CANTO to Cronos?
Go to Cronos Bridge Web App, and follow the steps below:
Step 1: Select CANTO network as the origin, and Cronos as the destination. Connect Keplr wallet
Step 2: Enter the destination Cronos address or, more easily, click “Connect second wallet” in order to connect your Crypto.com Defi Wallet or MetaMask wallet on the Cronos chain.
Now, the destination address should start with 0x and your screen should look like this:
Step 3: Select CANTO under Assets
Step 4: Enter the amount you that would like to bridge and click “Transfer assets”:
Step 5: Confirm the transaction
Once the deposit is confirmed, Cronos Bridge will start the transfer. The web interface shows the successful transfer initiation from the origination chain.
You will need to check the destination wallet (Crypto.com DeFi Wallet or MetaMask) to see when your funds are available on the destination chain. It usually takes about a minute.
Can’t see your CANTO in MetaMask (Cronos)? Make sure to connect MetaMask to Cronos and to import the CANTO token using its official address on Cronos:
