An accountant who turned cryptopreneur to pursue my interest in crypto and decentralized finance. Let me show you how to invest safely in the space with my experience over the years.

It’s quite possible to bridge Cronos token to Binance Smart Chain.

There are two bridging protocols that allow direct bridging between the Cronos network and Binance Smart Chain.

The two platforms are Multichain and Synapse protocol.

However, Synapse protocol is preferable, as it offers lower fees than Multichain, and has a larger number of tokens available.

Synapse allows you to bridge between Ethereum, Avalanche, Polygon, Cronos, Binance Smart Chain, Fantom, Arbitrum and other networks.

It’s a decentralized exchange with cross-chain feature.

It has largest bridging volume out of any cryptocurrency investing platform in the crypto entire market.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to bridge Cronos (CRO) to Binance Smart Chain (BSC) on MetaMask wallet.

Let’s get started…

Cronos & Binance Smart Chain RPC details

Before you bridge your tokens between these two networks, you will have to add both the networks’ RPC details into your MetaMask wallet.

To add these networks, simply go-to your MetaMask wallet extension and click ‘Networks’, then select ‘Add Networks’ and fill in the following details…

Cronos Chain (CRO)

  • Network Name: Cronos‍
  • New RPC URL: https://evm.cronos.org ‍
  • Chain ID: 25‍
  • Currency Symbol: CRO‍
  • Block Explorer URL: https://cronoscan.com

Binance Smart Chain (BSC)

  • Network Name: Binance
  • New RPC URL: https://bsc-dataseed.binance.org/
  • Chain ID: 56
  • Currency Symbol: BNB
  • Block Explorer URL: https://bscscan.com

How to bridge CRO to BSC

To succeed in this process, you need to connect your MetaMask account to Synapse, and then bridge your crypto directly.

The entire network bridging process will only take just a minute to completely receive your funds.

Follow the below steps to get started:

  1. Go-to Synapse Protocol exchange
  2. Connect your MetaMask Web3 wallet
  3. Select Cronos & BSC as two blockchain networks
  4. Input the amount of selected token you want to bridge
  5. Confirm the transactions in MetaMask wallet
  6. Wait for the funds to arrive.

Once the transaction is successful, you will see the amount of your bridged token in your MetaMask BSC network account.

Final words

I hope you’ve learned how you can bridge Cronos to Binance without facing glitches along the way.

There are other platforms that support these networks, but they do not allow direct bridging, which makes you to bridge to another network.

If you’re going to keep the token for the long-term, I will suggest you transfer the token to a crypto hardware wallet.

This kind of cryptocurrency wallet is known to store your investment, without the need of an internet connection.
