Wait... what’s bridging? 🤷
When you “bridge assets,” you’re moving those assets from one network to another so you can use them on the network you’re transferring to. Think of it like this: when you visit another country, you have to exchange your cash for the local currency. It’s the same when you bridge from, say, Mainnet to Arbitrum.
Why use L2s? To put it simply: it’s cheap.
A Layer 2 like Arbitrum has its own unique ecosystem and offers way cheaper gas fees than Layer 1 Mainnet (the main Ethereum blockchain, the OG) when you make transactions. Anything you want to do on Mainnet—like swapping or buying NFTs—you can also do on a Layer 2 chain like Arbitrum. But in order to reap the benefits of L2s, you have to bridge your assets.
Ready for launch 🚀
Now that you’re a bridging expert, you’re ready for Bridge Week(s)! Recap on what to do and when:
