BSC to Metis Bridge

Bridge tokens from Binance Smart Chain to Metis Andromeda mainnet with low fees. Before we bridge the tokens, here is a brief introduction to the Metis network. Also, make sure to connect Metis Andromeda mainnet to Metamask.

Metis is an Ethereum layer 2 protocol that is based on the technology of Optimistic Rollups. Metis is highly scalable and with much lower fees compared to Ethereum. Metis integrates a lot of functionalities that are not available yet on the Ethereum blockchain.

Metis has a native decentralized storage system, unlike IPFS which is used to store Ethereum NFTs. Metis smart contracts are easy to use and simple to develop even without the need for code. Metis is more secure and decentralized than other layer 2 solutions.

DACs, also known as Decentralized Autonomous Companies can be built on the Metis blockchain, which gives companies the ability to build complete decentralized businesses on the blockchain. Metis has a total value locked of over $500 million and that number is going to increase as more dapps get built on it.
