ElkNet cross-chain bridge allows transfers of ELK 1:1 between every chain Elk supports, currently:
Gnosis (formally xDai)
New chains are added frequently. Ethereum and Arbitrum are on the roadmap.
This guide will show you how to use ElkNet
1. Connect your wallet
Go to https://app.elk.finance/#/swap with your wallet (Metamask, etc) already connected to the chain you want to transfer ELK from. When you connect in the Elk dApp, it will automatically adjust to the chain you're on and the token list will change.
[Note: if you need to add a new chain to your wallet, you can search for the chain at https://chainlist.org/ and add it with one click]
2. Swap for ELK
Swap tokens you'd like to transfer for the ELK token using the “Swap” tab.
3. Bridge the ELK
Click on the “ElkNet” tab (or visit https://app.elk.finance/#/elknet) and input the amount of ELK you would like to send. Then select the destination chain from the drop-down menu, and choose whether or not you'd like to convert one ELK for gas.
[Note: Make sure you choose the “Swap $ELK 1 for gas” if you are transferring to a new chain where you do not have any of the native gas token. ElkNet automatically converts some of your ELK to gas so you can make transactions when you arrive]
Approve ELK, and Transfer. That’s it!
The ElkNet Bridge
[Note: you can watch the progress of your transfer by scrolling down to the ElkNet transaction history. Transfers advance from “Initiating” to “Processing” to “Complete.” When the transfer is complete, connect your wallet to the destination chain and refresh the Elk dApp to see your ELK.]
