Searching for possible ways to swap your Bitcoin cash over to smartBCH? This could be made possible through the utility of bridges that support the process.

The are several platforms that that supports the BCH - SmartBCH bridge which will be listed in this article and the most effective ones will be explained in details on how to make use of.

  • Prompt.cash

  • Hop.cash

  • Coinflex.com

Bridging in this context is a process whereby a coin or token could be converted from one network (chain) to another. Therefore bridging Bitcoin Cash to smartBCH is simply the process of converting the native Bitcoin Cash to SmartBCH (Sep-20) which is a side chain.

Why Bridge?

In a case where a Bitcoin cash user wants to participate in projects on the smartBCH ecosystem via DeFi, it is necessary that such user bridges the assigned amount he/she wishes to invest over the smartBCH network before depositing to his/her BCH (SmartBCH) address to avoid loosing assets.

For instance, One can only deposit BCH Sep-20 to a BCH Sep-20 address. Depositing BCH on its native network to BCH sep-20 will result in lost of asset.

How To Bridge Bitcoin Cash Using Prompt.cash

Prompt.cash happens to be one of the fastest and reliable way to bridge Bitcoin Cash from its native network to smartBCH (Sep-20) and takes few minutes to receive sent asset over the other end of the bridge but, you can only use prompt.cash to Bridge over to smartBCH (Sep-20) and can't bridge back to the native BCH.

To bridge BCH to smartBCH, simply follow the steps below;

(Note: This process is more effective using a wallet)

  • Visit Prompt.cash

  • Input the amount of BCH you wish to bridge over to smartBCH

  • Provide SmartBCH address you wish to bridge to and click on "exchange BCH".

  • A QR code will be automatically generated, pegged to the stipulated amount of BCH

  • Scan the QR code using the wallet you wish to send from then send.

  • Immediately afterwards, Promt.cash's interface will change to a window showing your transaction process.

Advantage and Disadvantage of Bridging Over Prompt.cash

Bridging over prompt.cash does not require any form of registration or KYC verification and processes transactions within a short time.

It's only flaw is that it can not bridge back smartBCH to the native Bitcoin cash network.

How To Bridge Bitcoin Cash Using Hop.cash

Hop.cash is designed to enable the two way bridging of Bitcoin Cash. In it's case, users can bridge from the native Bitcoin cash network to smartBCH (Sep-20) and otherwise.

In order to make use of hop.cash, it requires a smartBCH setup on any Evm supported wallet (Example: Metamask). That is because you'll need to connect hop.cash to a smartBCH network before performing a bridge.

The video below will assist you in setting up smartBCH on your metamask wallet.

  • Connect hop.cash to your smartBCH network

  • After successful connection, options to bridge between BCH to SmartBCH and SmartBCH to BCH will be displayed

  • After sending, Hop.cash automatically transfers BCH to SmartBCH. (For best bridge experience, a wallet is preferred)

How To Bridge Bitcoin Cash Using Coinflex
