Bridging Assets from other Blockchains

If you already have Terra assets on Ethereum or Binance Smart Chain, you can move that crypto to the Terra blockchain by using the Terra Bridge. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to do that:
Go to Terra Bridge and select the chain you want to switch your asset from/to.

Step 2: Connect Wallet

Click on "Connect Wallet".
Based on the chain you choose, you will see different options to connect. Choose the one in which you have your funds stored for switching purpose.

Step 3: Select the token

Once connected, click on the token column under "Asset" section, and choose the token you want to switch from the dropdown menu. For this tutorial, we will take UST as an example.

Step 4: Input Amount and Destination Address

Insert the amount you want to switch to another chain, and also provide the destination address where you want to receive those assets. Then, click on "Next".
$1 or 0.1% fee (which ever is greater) from the transfer amount is charge on cross-chain transfer using the Shuttle bridge. A transaction with amount smaller than $1 value will be ignored.

Step 5: Confirm the Switch Transaction

Check the destination address and amount once again, and "confirm" the transaction.

Step 6: Confirm Transaction on connected Wallet

Confirm the transaction on the wallet you connected from, in this case "Metamask".

And Done!

Your transaction will take some times to confirm, but the tokens should appear in your wallet within an hour.
