Wanchain 5.0: Browser Based WanBridge Makes Cross-chain Transactions Super Simple!

By ZooKeeper | Wanchain | 28 Nov 2020

What is WanBridge?

WanBridge is the browser based interface for Wanchain cross-chain transactions between Wanchain and Ethereum. With WanBridge, you no longer need to download and install the WanChain desktop light wallet. Simply go to the WanBridge website and make sure you have the WanMask and MetaMask browser extension wallets installed. WanBridge currently officially supports only Google Chrome, but other browser which run Chrome extensions may also work.

1. Step One

After opening the page, click the “Enter” button to enter the next page.

(If this is the first transaction for this asset, you need to authorize first. After authorization is successful, click the “Start” button)
